Hey everyone. It's time once again for our holiday giveways!

It's kind of a double celebration this month as we bid farewell to the Skywalker Saga when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will open on the 20th.

So, what better way to celebrate both the holidays and Star Wars than to giveaway some Star Wars stuff! Here is what we have to offer:

2019 Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Black and White Lloyd Mills Sketch of Lobot

2018 Star Wars A New Hope Denis Lawson Autograph

2018 Star Wars Finest Lightsaber Hilt Medallions #LM22 Obi-Wan Kenobi/99

Heck, we'll also throw in a copy of our latest issue, which features The Rise of Skywalker on the cover!

Leave a comment below that's related to Star Wars (anything and everything...except the dreaded Holiday Special! JK) and you will be eligible for the giveaway.

A winner will be selected on Monday the 9th after 5pm.

Be sure to also check out our giveaway over on our NSU Instagram page. We have a Kevin Eastman autograph and a Master Splinter sketch by Rich Henneman from the new 2019 Art of TMNT product by Topps!

So, what are you waiting for? Drop a comment below and you're in! Good luck!

I can still remember seeing Star Wars in the movies when the space battles were like something we had never seen before. Yeah its been over 40 years, but it's never been as good as that first time. Big Grin

When the Star Destroyer filled the screen at the beginning of the movie that first time I saw it, I wondered if "Star Wars" could be the best movie ever already. A friend had seen it opening weekend and said it was great. I'd seen the commercials and the scene played on talk shows (when the Millennium Falcon escapes the Death Star and is attacked by TIE fighters). It's hard to explain the splash that movie made at the time, the thrill of watching it, after years of low-budget, but good, movies and a lot of low budget bad movies that my dad liked. You just sat in the theater with your mouth open and then wanted to see it again. I think I saw it 14 times in the theater on that first run.

My son and I go to the Premiere when these movies come out. He comes in to Chicago from wherever he is living. He just happens to be back home. We are going to a preview on the 19th. The movies are enjoyable the moment the music at the beginning starts with Saga theme until the end. Come on Rey you can defeat Kylo Ren.

These giveaway cards are special and the artwork on the sketch is very detailed. Maybe the spirit of the Jedi and the Force will prevail.

Seeing the original Star Wars trilogy and playing with all the Kenner action figures I got for Christmas is seared into my memory. Such a wonderful part of my childhood.

It's a shame there never a card set with an Alec Guinness auto graph card.

I was there on day one to the see the original movie. After all these years it really does feel like a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...while I certainly don’t view the movies the same way that I did when I was 13, I have stayed aboard for the entire ride and view the pending conclusion as somewhat bittersweet. I’m hoping that the story gets the proper send off it deserves. In that respect, may the force be with us all!

The words awesome and amazing are so overused and have lost their impact but the impact that Star Wars franchise has made on the world is truly awesome and amazing

I remember first seeing Star Wars as a re-release in 1979, because they had a preview which said "Coming Next Summer--the Empire Strikes Back !"
