The Hallmark Keepsake Dream Book ’08 is out, and their Star Wars offerings this year have a Return of the Jedi theme, with an Imperial shuttle, Luke and Vader’s final duel, and Emperor Palpatine. The miniatures set is a Star Destroyer and the incomplete Death Star. Check them all out for yourself on page 64 (page 65 has Star Trek and Indiana Jones) or via the screencap beneath the cut.

On the Dark Horse boards, Randy Stradley shares a new cover (by Adam Hughes) and the content list for Luke Skywalker: Last Hope for the Galaxy. It’s a pretty nice selection, and looks to include some of Marvel’s Shira Brie/Lumiya arc and a bit from Dark Horse’s only NJO-era comic, the Chewbacca mini-series. See the full list under the cut.

Terese Nielsen talks about creating box art for the Legacy of the Force miniature line, and gives us a nice look at Rebellion-inspired Luke Skywalker in battle armor piece. (Looks like the art director got mixed-up with all this redundant naming – that’s not Legacy. This is Legacy.)
This is currently the only Star Wars post on her blog, but you can get a closer look at the finished artwork and some of Nielsen’s other Star Wars work at her DeviantArt.
From the deep thinkers of College Humor, Luke Skywalker’s Lost Letters From Dagobah. I think you can see where this is going.

…Only up to Dark Empire?
The Fury cover may be a fake, but we do get a look at the real Inferno cover today. Caution: It may spoil you for Sacrifice, as one of the leading candidates for ‘the death’ is on it.
Fans are speculating that this means Jaina is a shue-in for the Invincible cover, and I’m leaning towards Allana for Revelation… Although with it being a Traviss book I wouldn’t count out the Mandos… (Mirta? Chicks in armor have proved popular.)
Visual proof that Luke, Han and Leia got it on in A New Hope. Amazingly, totally safe-for-work. (via sunnyskywalker)
