Collector Series- Lars Mikkelsen to Sign for SWAU!
The third and final actor to be signing for the inaugural run of the SWAU Collector Series is Lars Mikkelsen! Mikkelsen is known and adored by Star Wars fans for his role as the voice actor for Grand Admiral Thrawn in Star Wars Rebels. This will be Mikkelsen’s first sit-down autograph signing ever!
Previously a staple in the Legends Expanded Universe novels written by Timothy Zahn, Thrawn was brought back into Star Wars canon as the main antagonist for two seasons of Rebels, introducing one of the most beloved characters in Star Wars history to a brand-new audience. Fans of the old Expanded Universe were introduced to the original creation of Thrawn starting with Heir to the Empire in 1991, a novel that is credited as reviving the love and lore of Star Wars after years of dormancy.
With the acquisition of the franchise by Disney, fans were afraid that Thrawn would be lost to the new Legends label, until Dave Filoni resurrected the Chiss mastermind as the ultimate foil for the Rebels heroes near the end of the third season. For his performance as Thrawn, Mikkelsen has drawn rave reviews, credited by fans young and old for having perfectly captured the cold, calculating, and intimidating presence that the character had solely in text form previously.
As mentioned earlier, this will be the first time Mikkelsen has participated in a sit-down signing of any kind. As part of the Collector Series, photos will be ordered from Topps Star Wars Authentics’ website, with over a dozen to choose from for Mikkelsen to sign. Sizes available include 8x10, 11x14, and 16x20. We also will have an extremely limited amount of Funko Pops, comic books, and action figures available for preorder. Personalizations are guaranteed, quotes and character names may be requested but are not guaranteed. Ink colors available are silver, black, blue, and bronze. As a reminder, there is NO send-in component to this signing, or any signings that are part of the Collector Series.
All photos ordered through our Collector Series will be affixed with our brand-new, state-of-the-art SWAU Hologram free of charge. Outfitted with the latest anti-counterfeit technology, SWAU Holograms are 100% tamper-proof with over a dozen security features to ensure viability and collectability.
