Few more:

Disney Adventures has a Vader/Yoda cover
Also, the Playboy issue is out, have my copy as of 5/4/05--it's decent, a few pages on SW done with true Playboy humor, mentions some political references, Spaceballs, and the popular C3PO "happy" card.

She had a certain cuteness at CIII that was appealing, shes hot in Playboy, but the pics certainly don't do her justice vs. seeing her in person.

I picked up the Time and (British) Empire magazines last week as well, but am laying off most of those other ones.

Here's a few more mags out over the last so many weeks:
Empire-Vader breathing magazine

I heard about the breathing feature as well, but mine doesn't seem to have it...  Any idea if it came both with and without the feature?  The only Empire mag I could find was unbagged (like usual), so is it safe to assume they didn't polybag these things just because of the electronics?  I'm rather bummed I missed out on that cool feature.  :-\

BLAST at the Movies presents:
Summer Movie Spectacular Star Wars III
Revenge of the Sith.

Sounds cool Bob.  Is that in the normal "movie magazine" section of the magazines?  Don't know if I've ever seen one of those before...

The BLAST magazine is issue #1.
I haven't seen it before either, and yeah, it was lumped in with all the other movie mags.

What stores is it available in Bob?  Still don't think I've seen it before.  Is it at newstands, or in Borders, or what?

I saw the Wired magazine this week. The cover jumped out from the stands. It's more dynamic in person than onscreen. (Cut and paste if the link doesn't work.)



added: Oh, several years ago, out of my 52-week subscription, only one issue of Time didn't show up. Yup, the Lucas/Star Wars one.  Gee, I wonder what happened to it?  ::)  >:(

I've been seeing that Wired issue for a good week around here now Dave, if not longer...  :-\

Dammit.  All this blabbering about magazines just made me go out and blow my wad (of cash) on 6 of them at lunch today:

Blast... (thanks for the head's up on this one, looks great!)
SFX (Obi cover)
Hot Dog (hadn't heard of this one before)
Starlog
CFX (Cinefantastique)
Entertainment Weekly (brand new one)

I passed on a few others with less content, like Premiere and Dreamwatch.  But one that REALLY caught my eye and had by far the best Star Wars cover was the British DVD Review magazine.  Unfortunately, there was practically zero actual SW content inside, but the cover sure as hell was cool.  Might want to look into tracking that one down Bob...

On the last page or two of the SFX issue, it mentions what appears to be a special SFX Collector's Issue on just Star Wars (The Power of the Force, or something along those lines).  Said it shipped May 4 (in England), so I'm not sure if this has hit Stateside yet, or not.  Keep an eye out for that one though, and holler if you come across it!
