New X-Wing Design in JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: Force for Change Video

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.

Fantastic Star Wars X-Wing Art by Dave Seeley


Timely, as one of the first three rumored Star Wars spin-offs is about Red 5 (Luke’s X-Wing call sign in the first Death Star battle), are these two fantastic pieces of Star Wars art from Dave Seeley.

2016: Boba Fett
2017: Episode VIII
2018: Solo
2019: Episode IX

Awesome Star Wars Propaganda Posters by Russell Walks

These SW posters were made for a Topps trading card set, but were very striking to me of the type of poster you see pop up during wartime, especially during the early part of the 20th century. Very cool stuff by artist Russell Walks.
