In his last video for the new Star Wars: Force for Change charity, JJ Abrams showed us the first creature from Star Wars Episode VII. This time we get a look at the new design for the X-Wing. Money for charity; nuggets of geek goodness for fans. Win win.

Hasbro may just have let the cat out of the bag on whom the first three Star Wars spin-offs will focus on. At a recent event, Hasbro unveiled their toy schedule through 2020 and it went thusly:

2016: Boba Fett
2017: Episode VIII
2019: Episode IX
2020: Red Five

What better way to start the week than to gaze lovingly on the beautiful visage of the DARK SIDE! Force choke your Monday, people.
