The good ‘ol days; that’s one of the things many of us reminisce about when discussing classic Star Wars memories and collectibles. Abrams’ latest, the Star Wars Topps Classic Sticker Book , helps add to our recollections with the first collection of vintage Topps stickers in one book. With more than 250 stickers to choose from, (with every one scanned from the originals) your trip down memory lane will be complete. However, the Star Wars Topps Classic Sticker Book is so much more than that.
With the release of Rogue One came a bevy of new characters in the Star Wars universe. Two of the breakout stars of the popular film, Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus, are featured in Greg Rucka’s Star Wars Guardians of the Whills , and are more fully formed as dynamic characters in the new book. Rucka beautifully shifts the third person narrative from each main character’s perspective and provides important motivation for a richer understanding of their crusade against the Empire. The Star Wars universe has a rich history of ambiguity, regarding many of their characters’ backgrounds, and with Star Wars: Guardians of the Whills , an intriguing piece of the proverbial puzzle is provided.
The Star Wars Rebels season finale is always an event; threads are tied up, mysteries are solved, and tears are shed. Season Three is no different. Personally, I spent most of the episode full of angst and nervousness. The stakes are high, and with Grand Admiral Thrawn in hot pursuit, even the Duke boys would be in trouble (#80sReference). As with all Talking Points columns, there will be spoilers, so don’t click on the link below until you have seen “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2”.
Warning: this post contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode, “Twin Suns”. Be sure to watch the show before proceeding.
Chuck Wendig’s final entry in the Aftermath trilogy, Aftermath: Empire’s End has been released, and completes the adventures of Norra Wexley and her mismatched group of miscreants. The reader journeys with Norra Wexley and bounty hunter Jas Emari in their pursuit of Grand Admiral Rae Sloane, but that is only one focal point of the narrative. We also follow Temin (“Snap”) Wexley, his wonderfully terrifying droid, Mr. Bones, and recovering Imperial Loyalty Officer, Sinjir Rath Velus as they desperately try to convince the New Republic that they must journey to Jakku (no spoilers here; once you read the book, you will understand why) for a number of reasons that are critical, both personally, as well as on a galactic scale. While it does not reach the staggering heights of Life Debt, Empire’s End is a worthy bookend to the Aftermath trilogy.
AC Worldwide’s Star Wars Bluetooth speakers are an incredible value for both Star Wars fans and audiophiles alike. The sound quality is superb, as is the sculpt; they are sure to please even the most discerning of consumers. We are proud to have them as an affiliate at Coffee With Kenobi. Let’s take a closer look at two of the three options: the C-3PO speaker, and the Darth Vader speaker.
The first ever standalone Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, debuted on December 16th, and with it comes a unique set of circumstances. At long last, the story of how the Rebellion came into possession of the Death Star plans has come into the canon of Star Wars‘ sometimes daunting mythology, and the revelation of this is unlike anything we’ve seen before on screen from a galaxy far, far away. The ramifications this film will have on future Star Wars storytelling will be intricate and, most likely, long lasting.
It’s finally here; I’ve been excited to share this news for what seems like an eternity!
Over the summer, I flew to LA and got to be a part of this amazing commercial for Rogue One and Target!

Star Wars Year by Year: A Visual History, Updated Edition by Daniel Wallace and Pablo Hidalgo is a revised edition of the original visual history (originally published in October of 2012). Naturally, additional entries have been crafted to reflect what has transpired in the Star Wars universe since 2012, with additional emphasis on The Force Awakens, Star Wars Rebels, etc. Approximately 60 pages have been added since the original, and like its predecessor, is an absolute Star Wars fan’s dream come true.
When I first discovered that Disney was expanding its Star Wars presence in their theme parks, I was beyond ebullient. Like many of us, I have many fond memories of the Disney theme parks, and when you add Star Wars to the mix, you’ve got entertainment gold. Star Wars Land is at least a few years away (absolutely nothing has been confirmed tim-wise at the time of this post), but the appetite for anything Star Wars is at an all time high.
To whet our collective appetites until Star Wars Land is finished, the Launch Bay has been created to satiate us , and certainly does so in grand fashion.
