Star Wars is a Star Wars comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics between 2013 and 2014. The series was written by Brian Wood, and follows the main characters of the original Star Wars trilogy soon after the events of the original film.[a] It ended after a 20-issue run, largely due to the Star Wars comics license being transferred to Marvel as part of Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm.
Writer Brian Wood stated on his approach to the series that "My plan is to pretend that nothing else exists other than 'A New Hope.' At least in the minds of the characters." The series debuted in January 2013. Alex Ross contributed covers to the first four issues.

Star Wars is a 2013 comic book series written by Brian Wood and published by Dark Horse Comics. Running for 20 issues between January 2013 and August 2014, the series was cancelled after Wood's contract was not renewed after Disney jettisoned the Expanded Universe into the Legends continuity.
Before Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace came back to the theaters earlier this year converted for 3D, the plan was to bring the other five movies to theaters one at a time each year, but that has apparently changed. At the Star Wars Celebration VI event in Orlando (where we first found out about the Blu-ray release two years ago) Lucasfilm announced that Episodes II and III in 3D will be released in theaters back to back in fall of 2013, arriving September 20th and October 11th, respectively. Missing so far from the announcement? A reason for the back-to-back release or any word on Blu-ray 3D plans. In lieu of more details, although it means Attack of the Clones will come back later in the year than Phantom Menace did, with any luck this accelerated schedule is a good omen for the original trilogy's return. Of course, we'll have to wait and see what magic can be worked with those older film and special effects elements, however IGN apparently found an early preview of the Episode II 3D footage to be promising.

Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox have announced the official release dates for the 3D theatrical launch of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Attendees at the closing ceremony for Star Wars Celebration VI, the franchise's massive fan event, learned that the epic movies that chronicle the rise of the Galactic Empire will be released back-to-back, with Episode II hitting theaters on September 20, 2013 and Episode III arriving soon after on October 11, 2013.
This LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Speeder 75022 is the only mass-release LEGO Star Wars Clone Wars set of summer 2013. Even though the Clone Wars cartoon series has sadly been cancelled and is no more, this is gonna be one hot set thanks to the inclusion of Mandalorian Supercommandos minifigures and the hugely-anticipated Cyborg Darth Maul minifigure.
Articulation functionality aside, Fett excels in a lot of other areas, namely in his accessories. Part of the ability of being a convention exclusive (and having an increased price) is that you can get more accessories in with the figure. He has his aforementioned, and highly detailed, jetpack, and also his rifle, blaster, and, of course, Han Solo-cicle and stand. The rifle is very detailed and has a lot of different paint applications; he can also hold it convincingly with both hands (something that is not easy to do with a figure) so you can stare down the barrel of the most feared hunter in the galaxy. His blaster is great too, if not quite as exciting, and while he can hold it well, it can also be stored perfectly in the holster on his right leg.
This is the second version of the 2013 Pictures and Rumors Thread. The first was was having technical difficulties, so we created this new one. The old discussion can be found here.
Yes for whatever reason the Hoth sets do seem to find their way to ToysRUS. Anytime you see an exclusive in a Lego store and the new sets are only found in ToysRUS it is an exclusive to ToysRUS. This is because they have first-to-market rights which means that only ToysRUS (and obviously the Lego store) can sell the new sets for a couple weeks before other retailers like Target and Walmart start selling. Now if it were a Target or Walmart exclusive, you would not see it in the Lego Store until the sets are legally allowed to hit shelves for Target/Walmart.
Man so what are my options if i want to get a Snowspeeder at SOME point? The new battle of Hoth only has a really small one though it looks ok i guess... What are the chances of another UCS or just generally a big one coming (in the size of the current X-Wing or something)? Is it rumored yet what they will focus on in 2014 for Star Wars since 2013 seems to be only about Ep. II which i have no interest in :(
Prosperity for the Big Two publishers created opportunities for smaller publishers, with a growing middle tier developing; the dollar market share for "everyone else" topped 36%, meaning it was a larger category than either Marvel or DC alone. Even with the first week of the calendar year counted with 2012 for Diamond's tracking purposes, this was only the second time in a decade that January sales beat the previous December's. DC's 50-plus multiple-cover Justice League of America #1 topped 300,000 copies sold to retailers in Feburary. March closed out the first quarter up 20%. April continued the pace, althought without many blockbuster titles. May sales continued the story, with a wide range of publishers contributing to the year-over-year increase. The first half of the year closed out at almost $250 million in total orders with June's sales. The second half of the year started with strong sales in July, the second-highest dollar figure seen since the 1990s. August sales slipped, although it was a four-week month compared with a five-week month before. September sales set a new Diamond Exclusive Era record with DC offering 3-D covers of many of its titles in "Villains Month."The fourth quarter started with October being the first $50 million month for combined comics and graphic novel orders in the Diamond Exclusive Era. November sales were driven mostly by graphic novel orders. December shipments were inflated by deep discounts on many hardcovers, but the month still closed out the best quarter of the Diamond Exclusive Era. The final rankings for all comics and trade paperbacks during the year appear below.Enough information about sales is known from past monthly rankings, actual publisher sales reports, and other sources to enable some educated guesses. Readers will find that the estimated final orders in the year for these comics exceed what was visible in the monthly charts; that's because there were reorders for items that were not high enough to make the Top 300 lists.You can find the first-month sales for these issues in the monthly charts; click one of the months above or use the search tool at the top of the page to find the specific issue.Click to skip to the Top Graphic Novels for the year.
