Book of the Sith with Holocron

The 160-page book features a faux-leather cover with debossing and heat stamping. Five removable artifacts—including a scrap of a Sith burial shroud, a battle map from the Great Galactic War, a diagram of Palpatine’s master plan, an Empire propaganda poster, and a note from Luke Skywalker—are tucked within the pages of the book. The book’s elegant design showcases original illustrations by acclaimed STAR WARS® artists, including Paul Allan Ballard, Jeff Carlisle, Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas, Russell Walks, Terryl Whitlatch, and the illustrators of Aristia/Hive Studios. The book and two accompanying mementoes—a Sith crystal and a Sith talisman—are enclosed in a mechanized blood-red and black Holocron case, which opens at the touch of a button with flashing lights and sounds.

“When we started this project, we really wanted to delve into the Sith side of the story,” says Jim Becker, president and publisher of becker&mayer! “We tried to imagine what kind of history lay behind their pursuit of absolute power. And how the Sith would hide their secrets over time. The innovative package our team came up with in collaboration with Lucasfilm, including the incredible Holocron case, is inspired.”

As each Sith Lord rose to power and then fell, the knowledge he gained vanished with him. Or so it seemed … Delve into the dark with BOOK OF SITH: Secrets from the Dark Side.

Credits Credits Everywhere.

Well New Zealand is going to make a Star Wars coin that will be legal tender. $1 denomination for the plated ones and $2 denomination for the 1 oz pure silver ones.

Each coin in the Star Wars set is struck from 1oz of pure silver. No more than 7,500 of each coin will be issued by the New Zealand Mint. The coins are legal tender of Niue Island.


The silver coin series will be packaged as two unique sets of four coins. One will be the Darth Vader head, and the other the Millennium Falconship, representing the dark side and the Rebel Alliance. Open the Darth Vader case and hear authentic movie sound effects of Darth Vader breathing. Open the Millennium Falcon case and hear authentic movie sound effects of the ship’s iconic “jump to light speed”. You can find them here

I might have to get a few.
