Cat Staggs

Title: “Clone Wars”
Artist: Cat Staggs
Size: 16″ x 24″

Cat Staggs seems to have taken four of the images she drew on sketch cards for Topps’ The Clone Wars trading cards and combined them into a print. Clockwise from the top left, we see Asajj Ventress, Padmé Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano.

I purchased this print from Cat Staggs at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia, on September 4, 2009.

Day 171: Star Wars: Attack of the Clones children’s book




Item: Star Wars: Attack of the Clones Little Golden Book
Illustrator: Ethen Beavers
Author: Christopher Nicholas
Publisher: A Golden Book
Price: $4.99

The full Star Wars saga has been given the Little Golden Book treatment. The Attack of the Clones book not only features Senator Padmé Amidala on the cover, but in six of the illustrations inside the book. We start with the assassination attempt on the Coruscant landing platform. Next, we see Anakin Skywalker saving her from two kouhuns. The Senator travels home to Naboo and we see her with Anakin Skywalker in a meadow. We don’t see her on Tatooine, but when the story moves to Geonosis, we see her captured by Jango Fett and then in the Geonosian arena. Finally, we see  Padmé and Anakin marry on Naboo.

I purchased this book July 22, 2015, at Books-a-Million, six days before its official release.

Cartamundi gave away “Lucky Sevens” playing cards during Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.

Day 35: Star Wars Episode I Heroes Chrome Poster

DSCN1081Chromium poster

Item: Star Wars Episode I Heroes Chrome Poster
Material: Chromium KromeFX, foil-backed (thick paper stock)
Size: 24″ x 36″
Price: ??

Numerous Chrome Art posters were produced in the late 1990s. Most were matted to 8″ x 10″, but two full size posters were produced for Star Wars: Episode I. The heroes version featured here as well as a villains version which featured Darth Maul, Sebulba, Battle Droids, etc. Not only were these posters printed on a foil-backed paper, they were slightly embossed so that the character faces stood out.

I purchased both posters at Tatooine Traders at Disney-MGM Studios, i.e., Walt Disney World. The metal in the posters made them opaque on the TSA x-rays, so I had to remove them from the poster tube to get through security.
