Posted by Jay on April 2, 2019 at 03:46 PM CST has revealed the exclusive artwork for the Star Wars Insider issues available only at Chicago! Issue #189 of the long running magazine will again have a Light Side and a Dark Side cover.

This year, however, the covers are not images, but original artwork by Celebration artist Karen Hallion. Her design features Kylo Ren and Rey striking a pose in front of venerable (and now, deceased) Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.

The Insider exclusive versions will be limited and available only in Chicago. If pricing is similar to past years, each issue will be listed at $20. Star Wars Insider #189 shows up on newsstands with it's normal cover on April 30, 2019.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases.

What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
