26 New ‘Star Wars’ Stories Have Been Revealed

Star Wars

In April, it was announced that a new book would be released called Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View, combining 40 stories written from dozens of writers (including Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta, famed comic book writer Paul DiniThrilling Adventure Hour creators Ben Acker & Ben Blacker) to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise.

Each story is told from the perspective of background characters from A New Hope  – “from X-wing pilots who helped Luke destroy the Death Star to the stormtroopers who never quite could find the droids they were looking for.” And with the October release date quickly approaching, Del Rey Publishing has begun unveiling some of the short stories that will be featured in this collection. Below, check out a first look at more than a dozen new Star Wars stories.

Mad Max Fury Road Funko POP Vinyl

The number of Funko POP Vinyl figures that have been made so far is unbelievable. I’m honestly not sure how many different figures have been released, but I’m sure it’s in the low thousands by now. Will many of them end up in landfills? Probably. Will that stop people from buying them? Doubtful. Especially when they keep coming out with more and more awesome figures.

This time, it’s Mad Max: Fury Road getting the Funko POP Vinyl treatment, and they’re bringing out all of your favorite characters from the movie. Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron both get their own figures as Max Rockatansky and Imperator Furiosa, but there are so many more you’ll be able to get your hands on.
