30 Years. 30 Covers.
 
Empire is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Star Wars with our biggest Force related extravaganza yet.
 
To mark this very special event, Empire has embarked on its most ambitious issue ever. There have been fights in the office, tears at team meetings, and many expletives shouted, but after weeks of deliberation we have produced 30 exclusive Empire covers featuring the 30 greatest Star Wars characters.
 
Can you guess which characters will appear on our 30 covers?

Oh my God, I can hear the clamour starting right now to have a go at you over this.

30 COVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

beancounter -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 10:41:38 AM)

How are you going to make sure every subscriber gets the cover they want??? Give them all 30? [:)]
Though actually that Chewbacca one looks the business. Or failing that can I have one with Greedo on? [;)]




britesparc -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:03:58 AM)

Yeah, I hope they give subscribers a new, exclusive cover, like with Indy. Something REALLY special.

BTW, Empire: if I could afford 'em all, I'd buy 'em all. [:)]

I reckon you can get about twenty definites for the covers (Han, Leia, Obi-Wan, etc) but what about the more obscure ones? Who does anyone want to see? Personally I'd like Salacious Crumb.




Rumbaabaa -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:08:30 AM)

I want to see that little baby alien in the bar who squeaks when he gets given a beaker of space-ribena. That would look nice. Do that one.




Spider -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:11:55 AM)

What a stupid idea. To be honest.




monkeyfish -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:18:47 AM)

I think it sounds cool if incredibly over ambitious, presumably most people won't have a choice of all 30 as I can't see the local WHSmith's stocking every single one. Clearly they'll be different numbers of each cover, after all there's going to be a fair amount more demand for Han Solo than there is for C3PO.
Of course, I think what we all really want to see is the Dr. Zoidberg of the Star Wars universe, Admiral Ackbar, it may be the only chance a useless fishfaced commander has to be on the cover of a major movie magazine.

Rumbaabaa -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:18:58 AM)

But it would be good!




britesparc -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:22:10 AM)

Ackbar, Crumb, and the Squeaky Ribena Alien... any more? [:D]




directorscut -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:28:52 AM)

I'm looking at my calander and we're well past April Fool's Day.




MOTH -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:41:12 AM)

Groan! that's really going a bit too far.

But wait! if you put this guy on one - i might just reconsider...

Joker7 -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:49:41 AM)

Has to be Boba Fett, that would be the coolest cover ever...[8D]




Rumbaabaa -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 11:50:45 AM)

The Captain Panaka covers will sell like hotcakes.




Rhubarb -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:11:08 PM)

Kit Fisto would be awesome. There's gonna be an inevitable backlash here, and i think its completely futile. No-one said you had to buy 30 covers, i think its fine. Obviously Han's and Darth's are gonna be the big sellers, but i hope Empire doesn't ignore the new trilogy completely. It's a good chance to have Christopher Lee on the cover.




Felix -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:14:24 PM)

The only problem with this is that, as usual, subscribers wont get to choose which cover they get.

I'd want Nien Numb, that guy's brilliant. Imagine having to go through life with a face like a vagina.




tommyjarvis -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:15:20 PM)

Wasn't there something in Empire a year or two back declaring that to be their final ever major Star Wars feature? What else is there left to say?




swordsandsandals -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:16:23 PM)

I love and hate this idea. I love it because its awesome, I hate it because 29*3.70 = 107.30 (i took one away for my subs issue) I want them all, but its not worth it. I'd like to see the little rat from return of the jedi that looks like rizzo from the muppets and sits near Jabba the Hutt. I'd also like to see some of the jedi council, Ki Adi-Mundi, Kit Fisto, etc. Why do you torment us with so much good stuff? i want them all!

The subsribers cover had better be fricking awesome. Please, not




britesparc -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:17:33 PM)

I think part of the point of having thirty covers - as opposed to three, or five, or something - is that's impossible, pretty much, to get them all. So it's more a case of finding rare ones, or your favourite characters, or obscure characters, etc.

I wonder if, alongside Star Wars superstars such as Nien Nunb and Lobot, there'll also be a TIE Fighter cover, a Falcon cover, etc...? Will we get three Anakins? Will there be Jar Jar?

I'm actually pretty excited.




nicholsonsmhead -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:18:28 PM)

A Star Wars nostalgia piece in Empire?

Finally!




swordsandsandals -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:18:47 PM)

Can you imagine the uproar of a Jar-Jar cover?




i007_Bond_007i -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:21:23 PM)

So, will one cover be chosen to be published which we vote for? Or will all 30 be published?

[:D] I'd be tempted to buy it for that

It'll be like the recent Q thing where they had 20 covers, with different stars from down the years. I only saw about five of those, but i got Paul McCartney so all was well.




Ramirez -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:42:38 PM)

Empire are announcing a cover a day - fine i get that.
There are 30 covers - yes i'm still with you.
This will all be done by the next sale date of the 24th May - Er.. am i missing something, maybe about 21 days?




i007_Bond_007i -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:46:26 PM)

Perhaps it won't be this month's issue, probably next month's.

I imagine they'll save Jar Jar for the subscribers.

Hey, there's thirty covers - one of them has to be Jar Jar, I know we all make fun but he is a major character. Same as Wicket.

Kudos if they do a Biggs cover.




TEFFH -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:48:54 PM)

Well, we know that it covers at least the original trilogy with the Hoth version of Chewie, but maybe prequels.
Personally, I think it would be cool if there were all version's of Anakin / Vader(anakin kid; anakin adult; Vader in mask; Vader unmasked; Anakin in Spirit form).

My guesses anyway
Chewie, Han, Luke, Leia, Obi Wan (young and old), Yoda, C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader and adult Anakin, Emperor Palpatine, Lando, Jabba, Boba Fett, Jango Fett, Darth Maul, Count Dooku, Qui-Gon, Mace Windu, Padme Amidala, Shimi Skywalker, "The binks thing" (ducks), General Grevious.

Random extra's: - Storm Troopers, Jawas, Ewoks, Battledroids, Other Jedi's (e.g. Kit-Fisto in his I am a cool Cthulhu type thingy way),.

And


please, please, please, please, please - The Millenium Falcon.





swordsandsandals -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 12:49:00 PM)

Not if its 24th may. Thats this months. I see where your coming from, an illogical misstep there, methinks.

Christopher Lee on the cover? Because that's never happened before.

I meant again. You can't get enough Christopher Lee surely?




britesparc -> RE: 30 Years. 30 Covers. (16/5/2007 1:01:59 PM)

I remember when that cover came out and people wrote in to criticise Empire's art department for putting his lightsaber on wonky [:D]
