December 21, 2016 – Topps, Authenticators, Inc. and Lucasfilm today announced the launch of starwarsauthentics.com, giving Star Wars fans worldwide an exclusive online destination for photos and authenticated autographs from iconic Star Wars actors. The site launched today following the highly anticipated release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Felicity Jones reveals the prize for this week’s top Star Wars: Force For Change fundraiser: a wearable Rogue One stormtrooper helmet autographed by the cast! In addition, Star Wars: Force for Change will match the donations of Star Wars fans to four select charities up to $1 million until May the 4th.
Official Pix has announced that they have decided not to renew their Star Wars license as of this month:
In July 2015, Official Pix elected not to renew its STAR WARS license. This means other than current inventory, Official Pix will no longer be able to sell licensed STAR WARS photos and STAR WARS autographed photos. If you have an unfilled order, it will be completed.
Official Pix still has other properties, and will continue to have great relationships with STAR WARS actors, but until another company acquires the license, if any, there won’t be any new licensed photographs or autographs.
We’d like to sincerely THANK our many STAR WARS customers who have been with us since 2001.
