2015 has been the year of Star Wars, with a slew of brand-new, in-canon, comics hitting the stands from Marvel Comics, to the major impact of the new novels, and brand-new mobile and console video games, but nothing has captivated the attentions of Star Wars fans, world-wide, like the up-coming, highly-anticipated seventh film installment of the film series that started it all, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

We're only a little over a month away, now, before the film finally hits big screens, nation-wide, on December 18th, and boy has it been a year of waiting for this film to finally come out! But, while 2015 might've been the year of Star Wars, the hype is definitely set to spike once November ends! It'll be right around the corner, then! And, to help you guys quench your enthusiasm and excitement, Soundwave is bringing you an event from a galaxy far, far away...!

On Saturday, December 12th, come into Soundwave for a day ALL ABOUT STAR WARS! It's fun for the whole family as we'll have ONE-DAY-ONLY sales and deals, we're going to have special guests, including local artists who will be showing off and selling their one-of-a-kind work, there'll be free stuff, prizes, signed items, an auction, and SO MUCH MORE!

 

Enjoy a day filled with:

  • A FREE Star Wars comic book for everyone who participates! Produced by Marvel Comics and provided by your friends at Soundwave Comics.

  • Sales and Doorbuster Deals throughout the day. Get your Christmas list ready to buy something special for the pop culture fan in your life.

  • Raffles for SIGNED Star Wars items and other fantastic prizes. Proceeds to benefit the "Buy a Ticket for Dan" event which provides a night out to the movie for several local cancer patients and their loved ones.

  • Out-of-this-world artwork and crafts created by our special guest artists. Come meet some of the talented local artists from right here in our area and commission something special.

  • Your favorite Star Wars moments from the first six films will be screening during the day. Experience the excitement again.

  • A craft booth set up for the kids. Star Wars Christmas tree ornaments to help make the tree at home even more special!

  • Star Wars themed photobooth to capture the magic of the day.

  • Costume Costume for all age groups! Cosplayers are always welcome at Soundwave events. Let's get creative!

  • A comic book/pop culture auction filled to the brim with items ranging from rare to the weird. Signed pieces, comics, toys, and more to add to your collection.

  • Surprise guests and more!

We've got some exciting raffle items everyone's going to flip out over, we're sure! These are pieces that any Star Wars fan wouldn't want to miss out on, pieces that are impossible to say "No" to!

First up, we've got an officially licensed Darth Vader helmet signed by actor David Prowse! Prowse, while not providing the iconic voice of Vader, with all credit going to James Earle Jones, was actually the man behind the frightening black helmet and cape. He carried the look of Vader, and helped make the character the confidently frightening figure he's come to be known to be, today.

The helmet comes with an official Celebrity Authentics certificate of authenticity card, which has a picture of the actor signing the helmet.

The other raffle item we've got is an officially licensed "Ultimate FX" lightsaber, based on the model Darth Vader uses in the Original Trilogy. It lights up and everything, but just like the helmet, it's signed by David Prowse, himself, on its blade and also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity!

Raffle ticket prices are as follow...

  • $1.00 - One ticket
  • $5.00 - Ten tickets
  • $10.00 - Twenty-five tickets
  • $20.00 - Sixty tickets

All proceeds from the raffle will go towards the third annual "Buy a Ticket For Dan" charity event. For information on that, click HERE for their official Facebook event page. The "Buy a Ticket for Dan" Event is a celebration of what we all love about the many stories within science fiction: altruism, love for our fellow man and HOPE. We're working with Trident Cancer Center in Charleston, and our fellow sponsors to provide local cancer patients and their families to join us at a Red Carpet premiere of the much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens .

The goal is to give these brave souls a chance to forget their struggles and enjoy an evening with friends and family. With the help of local sponsors and media they're hoping to raise awareness of cancer prevention, detection, treatments and cures utilizing science fiction entertainment as a catalyst to encourage patients and their families.

 

We always try to make each new event BIGGER and BETTER than the one before. Our good friends, Brook and Holly of M.o.D. Designs are our event planners once again so we anticipate FUN on a GALACTIC scale! Join this event to see more updates as we get closer to December 12th.

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!!!!!!!
