Disney was nice enough to preview several upcoming items that will be released at Star Wars Weekends in 2014 this week:
Among the items this year will be limited edition pins including a reveal/conceal mystery collection and art cards with pins. There is also a lanyard medal that looks like the medals awarded in A New Hope after the Battle of Yavin.
