Matril has posted the second part of her “Star Words” series:
He is a dutiful, deferent Padawan to Qui-Gon, clearly respectful of his master’s teachings but not opposed to raising questions now and then. We see this in their opening scene, as they discuss Obi-Wan’s elusive “bad feeling” (and I love all the “I have a bad feeling” lines, but since they’re not unique to the prequels, there’s no need to discuss them here) and explore how to follow Yoda’s advice about being mindful of the future, without neglecting the living Force.

ROTS Tsum-Tsums from Disney are scheduled to drop April 4. There are only four in this set instead of the usual seven: Vaderkin, Grievous, an AOTC era clone trooper (?!), and Obi-Wan. No word yet on whether there will be t-shirts. Check out a photo of the set here.
LadyJediScientist found a bunch more independently-produced prequel items:
House Organa necklace
Padmé eyeshadow set
Funko announced its first wave of SWCO Pop exclusives. There is one prequel Pop and that is a hologram Qui-Gon:
Han Solo not included. Apparently more exclusives will be announced. Funko says some will be “shared exclusives,” meaning you will be able to buy them elsewhere but they’re not saying yet which ones. If you’re going to SWCO, you must enter a lottery to get a crack at buying any of the exclusives.
Update: Funko will also be producing a 442nd Clone Trooper for SWCO. If you’re not going to the con, the clone trooper will also be available from FYE and Holographic Qui-Gon will be available at Target.

Art show exclusives for SWCO were revealed today (the artists themselves were announced in January) and it looks like just about everything is TFA, Rogue One, or a tribute to Carrie Fisher. But if you’re going to the con or a really nice friend of yours is picking up a piece for you, here are the PT-related pieces that might interest you:
“Watchful Guardian” by Chris Dee:
“Jango’s Finest” by Joe Hogan:
Ahsoka fans should check out art from Lin Zy Busch and Danny Haas (Rebels era). There’s one all Rebels piece from Alex Buechel. Acme/Dark Ink will likely have pre-orders soon; the piece has to be picked up at the con.
