There is no doubt in my mind that Marvel’s Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday is destined to become one of the best-selling comic book issues of all time when it is released on January 14, 2015. To celebrate the return of Star Wars comic books to Marvel Comics, Hasbro Toys and Diamond Comic Distributors have created a very special Previews exclusive Hasbro variant cover to Star Wars #1. This variant also doubles as a Toy Fair Edition exclusive cover, and is limited to just 10,000 copies.
Created completely from Hasbro Star Wars Black action figures, this variant photo cover depicts Darth Vader during an audience with Emperor Palpatine, flanked by Imperial Stormtroopers and three fan-favorite bounty hunters, IG-88, Boba Fett and Bossk. This amazing image was staged on a physical, scaled throne room set with actual lighting, and with no computer-generated enhancements under the direction of Hasbro’s Star Wars product team. How amazing is that!?!
Star Wars, comic book and toy fans can pre-order their very own copy of the Previews Exclusive Hasbro Variant Star Wars #1 from their local comic book specialty store now to ensure you get a copy when it is released on January 14th. The final cut-off date to pre-order this issue is December 15th, making it critical for fans who want the limited edition to get it before time runs out.
