This one is more comedic than the others:

I don’t spend too much time on Reddit but I found out today through the magic of social media about /r/PrequelMemes. According to Mashable, the subreddit has 134,000 and counting subscribers and has been the fastest growing non-default subreddit twice this past month.
As an aside, I have to disagree with a few things in the Mashable piece: the prequels don’t need “saving,” not everybody hated them, and not everybody doing these have political motives. I see it as fans finally finding their own space to freely celebrate their love of the movies without a bunch of douchebags telling them they’re wrong and stupid. And on various “sithposting” pages on Facebook, there are a lot of prequel memes too.
Not everyone on the subreddit is a prequel fan per se but it seems after taking a look at several pages’ worth of entries, most of it is about having fun with the movies. People routinely quote the movies in their comments. This being Reddit, not all of the memes are family-friendly or politically-correct and a few are kind of NSFW. So venture at your own risk.
But now I have this to use:
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.
This one was actually posted a month ago, before the TPM one and I don’t see an AOTC one yet. But here’s the Box Office Artist’s tribute to ROTS.
The Box Office Artist has been doing a series of artwork in tribute to the various Star Wars films for ANH’s 40th anniversary. Here’s the fourth one in the series, a tribute to TPM:
The Kessel Runway has a japor snippet necklace DIY just in time for Valentine’s Day. This isn’t a movie replica; it’s designed to be a fashion item. So those of you who are present-less for tomorrow, here’s your last chance to impress your Valentine!
Matril made a couple of fan vids recently, both PT-themed:
Somebody (kazaikos on Tumblr?) found these gorgeous paintings created by David Tutweiler for the Star Wars Visions fine art book that came out some years ago. I don’t remember these at all, so I’m guessing they did not make the final edit. But George Lucas, who personally commissioned the pieces, kept ’em:
The title of the last one is “Padmé & Anakin Adrift.”
