As announced last evening on, Marvel Comics will be producing 48 variants throughout the year to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars (that's A New Hope to you and me)!

You can view the first 8 images (some with the titles they belong to, and others with just the artwork) over at Presumably, as Marvel publishes four Star Wars titles per month, and there are 12 months per year (ok slowpokes; 4 x 12 = 48!, these variants will only appear on the Star Wars titles. No cross promotion between X-Men or The Avengers it would seem. So this first batch would be for the January 2017 and February 2017 solicited comics, with more coming in March 2017 as well.

Stay tuned for more info on these as it develops.

I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
