San Diego Comic-Con attracts thousands of attendees each year. They go for the costumes, first looks at movies and TV shows, the chance to meet comic book artists and writers, and panel discussions. But there’s another big draw: exclusive collectibles created just for the show. Gentle Giant, purveyors of finely-crafted maquettes and busts, has some exciting exclusives planned for this year — one of which celebrates a certain bounty hunter who successfully tracked the Millennium Falcon to Cloud City. StarWars.com is proud to reveal it here first.

Combining stunning visuals, incisive gameplay, and smart level design, the Star Wars: Battlefront video games took fans into the Star Wars universe in previously unexplored ways. The series beautifully showcased Star Wars locales, featured intense ground-battle action, and allowed gamers to fight for the Empire, the Republic, the Rebellion, and other factions. They were not just great Star Wars games; they were great video games in their own right. And we are thrilled to confirm that the series will continue.

Star Wars Lucha Libre Masks

It’s Cinco de Mayo, but it’s also the day after May the 4th. You may still be feeling the need to celebrate Star Wars today, but don’t know how. Fear not; there is a way to make Cinco de Mayo strong with the Force.

Ever wonder what it would be like to see a tag-team wrestling match with Darth Vader and Darth Maul against Boba Fett and General Grievous? We do too, and better yet, they should be wearing Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling) masks!

Lucha Libre masks hold special meaning for the luchadores who wear them. The masks represent animals, legendary heroes and ancient gods. The luchador never reveals his true identity by taking off his mask or he could be disqualified from a match. Even when luchadores retire, they often still wear their masks in public.

Here’s what we think Star Wars luchadores masks should look like, illustrated by Star Wars artist Randy Martinez. Print them out and wear them for fun!
