    Episode 3 Packaging Officially Revealed

    Posted by Mike | July 25, 2004 at 11:31 AM EDT |

         The Episode 3 news was coming out of the woodwork yesterday. From the announcement of the title, to the images of the Episode 3 Vader released on Hyperspace, there had to be something to make every fan of the Star Wars Saga Smile
         It was no different for Star Wars Collectors. Yesterday amid the fury of info, Hasbro released the design of their Episode 3 packaging. The graphics show a very menacing Vader Helmet, hovering above a lake of erupting lava. On the helmet itself looks to be the shadows of Obi-Wan, and his one time Padawan, Anakin, engaged in the battle that every Star Wars fan has dreamed about. Also of note is that Hasbro looks to have dumped the square/rectangular look, and gone with a more rounded egg shape to the bubble.

    Dark Horse Comics September Press Release

    Posted by Mike | July 07, 2004 at 01:45 PM EDT |

         Dark Horse Comics has released its September Press Release, and there is some Star Wars Related News.
         First off, starting with issue #21, Star Wars Tales will be "revamped":

        "Beginning with issue #21 in September, the quarterly anthology Star Wars Tales undergoes a radical retooling. Over the course of its five-year run, Tales has presented a large collection of short, non-continuity Star Wars stories ranging wildly in style and tone, careening between the deadly serious and the absolutely absurd, doing its best to cast as wide a net over as broad an audience as possible."
        "Tales will be moving away from being a compilation of disparate, “what if?” style stories and becoming more of a companion to the other Star Wars monthlies (Empire and Republic) filled with longer, in-continuity adventures that span every Star Wars era."


         Also, Dark Horse Plans on releasing a book of some of the best Star Wars Comic Book Art to date. The Book, titled, "Star Wars: Panel To Panel From The Pages of Dark Horse Comics to a Galaxy Far, Far Away" is due out on September 29, with a retail price of $19.95. Here is what Dark Horses has to say:

        "From 1992 to 1999, Dark Horse Comics was virtually the only source of new Star Wars visual art. Even after the release of the new films, the talented artists at Dark Horse have continued to expand the depth and breadth of the Star Wars galaxy. From ancient Jedi to alien worlds, from fantastic creatures to faster-than-light spaceships, no other publisher has produced so many dazzling images from our generation’s greatest mythology."
        "This book presents an amazing selection of covers and interior images from over a decade of Dark Horse’s comics and graphic novels, by some of the best artists the world over. A visual feast for anyone who enjoyed the films, a true treasure for the dedicated Star Wars fan!"
