    In my head canon, the Ewok senator is rallying scattered New Republic forces over Endor. ;)

    Oh man how cool would it be if Kettch the Ewok was in ep 9 shouting Yub Yub in the middle of a battle!

    I'm excited that the main villain is a scientist of sorts

    Isn’t it weird that in the preview, the door to Han’s house has a doorknob? I know Star Wars isn’t always sci-fi minded but most doors I’ve seen in the SW galaxy open electronically and I’m pretty sure when Ahsoka was living on that farm moon that her door was opened by a keypad. What cruddy place is Han staying at that it’s so primitive that it was a doorknob?

    I remembered someone else complaining about the doorknob, so I looked earlier in the thread.

    What do you know? It was you. A few months ago, you were ranting every other day about how there weren’t enough books coming out anymore. Now that a bunch of books have been announced, you’re complaining about a doorknob. Repeatedly.

    Going back through my copies of Jedi Prince, I don't see any signs indicating or denying the presence of a doorknob in Solo's Skyhouse. The doors are usually open, much like his heart at that series. Perhaps the presence of doorknobs in Last Shot is symbolic of how he shelters his true emotions in the new EU?

    More important, I would think, is the obvious lack of the Most Comfortable Chair Ever Designed. I understand that Daniel Jose Older didn't want to play this card so soon in the new canon, because TFA's Han and Leia don't seem to have enjoyed the benefits of the Chair for as long as they did in the old EU, but I think it added a unique flair to Han's character and its return should at least be considered by Story Group.

    If there's anyone who should be careful about closing doors, it's Han Solo.

    Preordered my copy from amazon prime over the weekend. So it should be delivered the day of release.

    Question for any of my fellow collectors: are you leaning Han or Lando DJ when you shelve your copy?

    Strangely, Amazon UK have yet to discount this down to £13.60 and I'm not paying £20 for it.

    I'll go with Han.

    Yep, can't wait for both novels, Han is my favorite character since forever, it will be great to learn more about his early years, and his life post-ROTJ.

    I advise being very careful when switching the cover... folding it just right is a delicate operation.

    But the Lando cover is definitely the way to go.

    Yeah I was curious what effects ‘reversing’ might have on the DJ. Don’t want to be switching it back and forth... Wear out the folds maybe.

    Does anyone know if they are delivered/sold both ways? Or are they all default as Han? Curious to see which one shows up in my mailbox.

    I didn’t have any problem changing the cover on mine.

    Every copy you see in store or delivered via mail will be wrapped as Han. Something we debated and discussed for months. For a variety of reasons it was the best call.

    The folds are pretty deep, should not have too much trouble swapping them.

    Oh it’s not that the folds were hard to find — it was clear where to fold it to reverse the thing, it’s just that you have to be careful while folding.
