Greetings Rebel Scum! You read that correctly, we are super excited to announce Prequel trilogy star and Grogu champion, Ahmed Best will be appearing this summer at Rebel Scum Con in Dallas, Texas!

With this year being the 25th anniversary of The Phantom Menace, we had to have a special guest representing Episode I. Ahmed Best, who is best known for portraying Jar Jar Binks, will be appearing at Rebel Scum Con for his first convention appearance in almost a decade. Best also appeared recently in The Mandalorian, where he portrayed Kelleran Beq who saved little baby Grogu from the Jedi temple during the tragic events of Order 66. Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Phantom Menace, and the rest of the Star Wars Saga with Ahmed Best, and a ton of other Star Wars celebrity guests at Rebel Scum Con!

At this time we are also ready to announce Epic Experiences, previously known as "Epic Photo Ops" will be facilitating photo ops and autographs for Rebel Scum Con. Epic Experiences is a leader in the convention experience space, and we are proud to partner with them at Rebel Scum Con 2024.
Pre-sales will begin today for photo ops and autographs approximately 6:00pm CST.

But that's not all! Prior to Rebel Scum Con, we are partnering with Everest Autographs for a mail-in autograph signing event for featured headliner Ahmed Best, as well as other select Rebel Scum Con guests. Everest Autographs is led by Rebel Scum veteran Chris Wyman, who is a seasoned professional at running celebrity autograph events. Pre-orders begin Monday, April 29th at 9:00am CST.

What do you think Rebel Scum?
We don't have any Kelleran Beq figures (yet), but there is no shortage of Jar Jar merchandise to have Mr. Best sign during Rebel Scum Con.
