Disney is selling a lot of lightsabers. 10 million a year, in various forms from keychains to the expensive collectibles. We can also expect to start seeing Rebels products in August.
JadeCon prep meant I never did a new release post last week, so naturally there were several last Wednesday.
This Wednesday, however, brings us Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #2.While you’re at the comic ship, you can pick up last week’s books, Star Wars #18 and the third Dawn of the Jedi trade collection, Force War. Last week also saw Star Wars Insider #150 make it out to the newsstands.
Also on the shipping list for this week? Kotobukiya’s Mara Jade Bishoujo statue. The list is for comic shops, but it’s also on Amazon if you’re so inclined. (It doesn’t seem folks were too impressed, but keep in mind this may very well be the last Mara Jade merchandise ever…)
We know that Her Universe is expecting to announce several new liscensees, and if this Captain America shirt (prematurely?) available for order on ThinkGeek is any indication, Marvel is indeed one of them. Unless Ashley is suddenly modeling other lines… (Via @Shadadukal)

We already knew what this year’s Star Wars Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments would be, but the official Dream Book is online now. (Star Wars is on page 77.) The standard ornaments are The Rise of Lord Vader, Scout Trooper, the Sandcrawler, LEGO Boba Fett and the Cantina Band. There’s also a motion-detecting Santa Yoda peekbuster, and a Wampa figure that will only be available at San Diego Comic Con.
