    Check it out at starwars.com!

    What are your thoughts?

    I like seeing both Anakin's and Obi-Wan's blue blades together!

    Freaky eyes. That was my biggest impression. Of course, I didn't study it very long. I love the Jedi Quest cover though, just to add my two cents about that at an appropriate moment.

    I'm too lazy to reach for the mouse and copy the URL into the browser window, so I'll make a link to the picture.

    Looks like Obi-Wan's levitating something and Anakin is mad at something.

    Wheee. A little more crude than the last two Prequel covers. But its cool! Obi-Wan and Anakin!

    I love nerdgasms.

    Without a doubt the best prequel-era cover yet. Makes me look forward to this book even more. Between Star By Star and The Approaching Storm, The wait for Episode II is going to be much more tolerable.

    I really like it. What makes the cover stand out I think, is that these aren't poses we've seen before. I'm just hoping they are original photos of the actors rather than from AotC scenes that we haven't seen.

    We should be getting the Dark Journey cover soon then. And isn't it by the same guy that did this and all the other prequel novels?

    I knew it was coming...I used my Jedi powers this summer and predicted it would hit TOS in late July or August.

    And it appears late August 31st. You barely predicted correctly.

    Luminara Unduli.

    She was in Cloak of Deception as well.

    Hmm, I've still yet to read Cloak of Deception so I'll make sure to read it before The Approaching Storm.

    I think the cover looks intresting. And look closely at the shading on Obi-Wan's blade. It's not the same blue we saw in TPM. That blue shading seemed more reminiscent of Anakin/Luke's blade from ANH and ESB. The shading of his lightsaber blade is reminiscent of the blue-white color his blade is in ANH. And even more reminiscent of the haze/aura that envelops his spirit in ESB and RoTJ.

    Anakin's seems to hit the mark on his blade's shading. It appears to be the same blue as we came to know in ANH and ESB as having been passed down to Luke.

    Perhaps this could suggest that their going to use these shadings in AoTC. Or maybe the cover artist is drawing on the well known lightsaber blades of these two from the OT.

    Or perhaps you're becoming as bad as GhentZ.

    It looks like Luminara Unduli will turn out to be an important character. We seem to be seeing more and more of her lately.

    Makes you wonder what role she will have in AotC.

    Doesn't GhentZ predict? I'm speculating. And you will notice that I offered to speculations.

    Two reasons to like this cover :

    1. We finally know the color of the blades in AotC for sure now (well, except if they lose them, but I doubt it...)

    2. Obi-Wan looks pretty :cool: on this cover !!!

    From TOS pics and videos, most people already knew the sabers would be blue.

    This picture kicks ass. I'm liking it more and more everytime I look at it. Look at what a smooth bad@$$ Anakin is.
