Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of SWPAS’s launch. Almost a whole decade! I know I haven’t written very much lately due to other things draining my batteries, but I plan to keep this site chugging along. Thanks for all of your support all of these years!

Late today came the bombshell that Hot Topic has purchased Her Universe. Ashley Eckstein is still staying with the company and there are plans to expand into offering men’s items (including Ahsoka wear), more plus sizes, and products available to the European market. Eckstein did a half hour or so chat on Facebook where she answered questions live.
The really interesting part (to most of us anyway) comes about in the last 6 minutes of the chat. Here Eckstein mentions the design team creating a beautiful Naboo dress and then mentions there are designs for an entire collection. She says she’d like to get some of those designs made, possibly for next spring or summer. You can watch the whole thing here. Let’s hope these do make it to market and they’re not just made for teenagers. In the nearer future, there’s supposed to be an Ahsoka design for the holidays.
PopWrapped has a list of its Top 5 lines from the prequels. Some really interesting choices and interpretations.
The Disney Store at your local mall and online will unleash 10/18 the latest round of Star Wars Tsum Tsums, this time from AOTC: Anakin, Padmé, Jango, Mace Windu, Aayla Secura, and Plo Koon. These should retail for five bucks apiece. I also hope they have a cute online exclusive t-shirt as they did with the TPM set!
This one is on what kind of collectibles you’d like to see more of, whether you are buying them now or not.
Star Wars.com only had five greatest moments to pick from but I would’ve put his appearance in Robot Chicken in an ambulance chaser “ad” just behind his big entrance at the beginning of the lightsaber fight in TPM.
If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read it but the person playing the character dropped the news at Sydney Comic Con.
“Rebels” Season Three kicks off later this month.
Thanks to everyone who voted in my last poll. Here’s a new one on what merchandise/collectibles you buy! Thanks!
Star Wars: The Prequel Trilogy found Marvel’s trade paperback “Obi-Wan & Anakin” #2 on the New York Times bestseller list for paperback graphic books.
Congratulations to Marvel, the writer, and artists!
It’s not apparent from this Amazon listing for a prequel trilogy graphic novel pre-order, due out in April 2017, whether this is the comics adaptations of Eps I-III collected in a single volume or if this is something totally new. One clue that it could be the latter is that the publisher isn’t Marvel Comics, but Disney Lucasfilm Press. Of course that could be totally wrong. We’ll just have to see.
