Updated with the Winners! Star Wars News Net Ninth Birthday Giveaway

It’s been nine years since I started this site, purely driven by my love for Star Wars and my desire to have the most interesting, important, and credible news source in one place for all fans of the franchise to enjoy.


Nine years is a long time, and I wouldn’t be able to do this without the help of all the incredible people I met during this time. A huge thank you to everyone involved with The Cantina forums, all the SWNN writers, the incredible The Resistance Broadcast podcast team, and of course all of our readers and fans, without whom we wouldn’t be here today.


There is no bigger prize than our readers’ appreciation of what we do. So before I go any further here, on behalf of the SWNN team and myself, I wanted to give big thanks to all of you who come to SWNN as your source for Star Wars news, reviews, information, and hopefully some fun!


Speaking of prizes, now it’s our time to give some away in appreciation of your support.



We decided to do a cross platform giveaway, so all our accounts will have a different prize. Thank you so much to our friends at Hasbro for sending us some of the toys we are giving away (some of them are not even released yet), we would rather share these with our readers than keep them for ourselves. In addition to the two figures (all different) that will be given away on all six of our accounts (12 figures total) we will add a pre-order for the upcoming highly anticipated book The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian (Season Two), which will be released in December.


The Art of The Mandalorian


We are giving away the following two toys together here on the site, along with a pre-order of Star Wars: The Mandalorian (Season Two):
