While it may be shameless self-promotion, I can’t help but geek out over the fact that Roqoo Depot is now on the back of three Star Wars book covers. If you start checking out the latest paperback Star Wars novels, you’ll notice some review blurbs on the back. You’ll find Roqoo Depot on Troy Denning’s Star Wars: Crucible, Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void, and Drew Karpyshyn’s The Old Republic: Annihilation.

ForceCast: Special CEII Artist Interviews Episode one includes some really nice interviews with Star Wars Celebration Europe II artists Joe Corroney, Hugh Fleming and Lin Zy. All three artists are interviewed by fellow artist Spencer Brinkerhoff III. Definitely worth listening to.

Special CEII Artist Interviews Episode two covers Star Wars artists Brian Rood, Chris Trevas and Jerry Vanderstelt. I’m really enjoying these special interview episodes. Spencer does a great job and I’m looking forward to listening to more.

Full of Sith: The Story of Star Wars Special Release episode is something fans may or may not want to skip. Mike gives a brief intro and then plays The Story of Star Wars (which was a record released in 1977) in its entirety. It’s basically the audio for A New Hope but with narration so listeners can follow along with the action. Definitely cool to have it out there if you ever want to give it a listen.

If you missed out on the Tim Lebbon live chat on Star Wars Books Facebook page yesterday, you can check it out here. Below you’ll find our edited transcript.

Tim Lebbon: Hi guys! Looking forward to this. Let the questions begin!

In the book you depict the actual training that Je’daii go through on Tython; how much creative freedom did you have with those sequences?

Tim Lebbon: Quite a lot, actually. My editor was keen to see some of the training in the Je’daii Temples, and as I developed the story I found that it fed in VERY nicely to Lanoree and Dalien’s background and what went wrong between them in the past. The temples themselves were already established by John and Jan, but the training they go through and a lots of the geographical details, etc, are all my own. That was a GREAT part of writing the novel … and there are other Temples I didn’t get to visit. Continue Reading Tim Lebbon Live Chat Recap…

Where to start, well, Dave Filoni is back at it with the TIE fighters. Some sites think this could be research for a new television series, however we have it on good authority that this is simply the first in a new series of toys from Hasbro. Expect to see Filoni fighters on toy shelves early next year. Continue Reading Around the Web…
