Celebration II Lanyards Sold Out:

According to a report on, a disgrunteled customer complained that Wizards of the Coast has sold out of the special "Star Wars Celebration Lanyards" available only to Star Wars Fan Club members.

"I just purchased my Celebration II Three Day Adult Admission (Shipped) so I could avoid the lines at the Celebration and immediately enjoy the special benefits with my Fan Club Lanyard. Well, to my surprise, when my pass arrived there was no Fan Club Lanyard."

The fan contacted the Fan Club and was told to bring a picture ID and be prepared to wait in line! So... I guess the moral of the story is - shop early or be prepared to wait.
