A few months back, it was announced that Star Wars Celebration V, the official Lucasfilm event that celebrates all things Star Wars, was going to be held at the Orange County Convention Center, August 12-15.

With Star Wars Celebration V taking place right down the road from Walt Disney World, Disney Theme Park Merchandise decided to join the Rebel Alliance and get in on the galactic fun! Not only will Disney Theme Park Merchandise have a booth at Celebration V to showcase new Star Wars merchandise coming to Disney Parks, but we’ve also created collectible merchandise that will only be available at Star Wars Celebration V.

Here’s a sneak peek at one of our Star Wars Celebration V exclusives – the Starspeeder 1000 “Sneak Preview” Vehicle.

In 2011, a spectacular new Star Tours adventure will make its debut at Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Based on the iconic Lucasfilm Star Wars saga, this immersive, 3-D attraction will take you on all-new adventures that will bridge the “long time ago” between the two Star Wars trilogies.

In anticipation of the “reimagined” Star Tours attraction, Disney and Lucasfilm are proud to bring you this “Sneak Preview” of the Starspeeder 1000. This collectible will be available exclusively at Star Wars Celebration V and will not be re-produced when the attractions re-open in 2011. It features the new design and sounds found in the new attraction. This will be a limited edition of 10,000 pieces and will retail for $24.95.

(And don’t forget! For one last chance to experience the original ride with fellow Star Wars fans, don’t miss the “Last Tour to Endor” after-hours party on August 14 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.)
