In addition to the quotes, statuses, Tweets, videos, and other celebrations being thrown around, both TomTom and LucasBooks have made announcements relating to upcoming products. Read on for details!TomTom, makers of GPS and other travel systems, have announced that they will be releasing Star Wars actor voices for their products, one per month through the summer. Each can be purchased and downloaded. You can visit TomTom’s Star Wars site for these as well as games, contests, and free content. We’ll keep you updated!
As for the Literature news, this was posted by LucasBooks Editor Sue Rostoni in the VIP 3.0 thread at the StarWars.com forums:
Remember I had said that Saba would be on the back cover of Fate of the Jedi: VORTEX? Well, it didn’t work out. The cover images are posterized from photos, and there aren’t any photos of Saba. The artist and designers at Random House tried for over a month to create a Barabel that would work with the style of the covers, with no success.
So… the back cover character on VORTEX is now the stately Kenth Hamner.
We should have a finished cover for CONVICTION to post in about a month. Tahiri will be on the front cover — don’t know yet who’s on the back.
@Uilmuteiz Yes, there will be WiFi in the OCCC for attendees and press.
