I had an absolutely amazing time last month on my Armada paperback tour, and I’m very grateful to everyone who took the time to come out to one of my signings. You guys were amazing! In the photo above you can see the enthusiastic crowd at the Tattered Cover bookstore in Denver, but there was an amazing turnout at every single one of my stops on the tour.

Aside from a few final wiring touches, construction is now completed – less than 48 hours ahead of the release of The Force Awakens! I posted the background story behind this car a few days ago, along with some work-in-progress photos and videos. But Eric just sent me these gorgeous images of the finished car.

I’m going to go ahead and proclaim it to be the coolest Star Wars car in all of human history. And also one of...
