Here's a few more this week:

MAD (ROTS cover)
MAD XL(old Yoda cover)
Dreamwatch (ROTS cover)
Scrye(Vader cover)

I really love collection SW magazines, fairly inexpensive (you can always find mags in clearance bins, old book stores, flea markets, ebay, shows, etc)

It's great to just  pick up vintage mags w/SW in it and read the old articles.

There are some GREAT mainstream mags w/Star Wars covers:
old TIME, People, US, Rolling Stoneetc. etc.

I have a few old ones autographed an framed, non-SW fans absolutely love them, always a neat conversation piece.

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!

I finally found this "Special Edition" issue (#21) of SFX today.  Seems like it just came in, as I found four or five of them at several different magazine racks at lunch today.  Whopper of an issue, for sure.  Exclusively Star Wars related, has a pack-in ROTS mini-magazine, and some stickers, and rings up at a phat $15.  Polybagged too, with a big ol' C-3PO on the cover.  I haven't opened it yet, but it looks like it's gonna be very cool...

Definite must have for any magazine collectors out there!

I saw the Rolling Stone issue with Vader on the cover, but for some reason, I didn't grab it.  I think I'll have to go back for it, it was a pretty impressive picture, especially with Rolling Stone's oversized covers.

Not much of a magazine collector, but I did pick up the TIME mag w/ Vader on the cover.
