May The Fourth 2022 is upon us! Otherwise known as “Star Wars Day”, this punny little holiday is packed with news and announcements. Now, what started out as an internet meme with fans saying “May the Fourth Be With You” has turned into a juggernaut of a media and marketing frenzy.
The optimist in me says this is a day for celebrating our shared fandom and maybe getting some cool news and deals on some collectibles! The pessimist in me says this is an internet meme co-opted by a corporation to drum up marketing and sale for licensees. Oh well. Below, you’ll find a summary of the news, reveals, and deals from around the internet!

I’d been eyeing these to put together with my son over the last few weeks and this made my decision even easier.
These things look super fun to me. You start with a bunch of sheets of metal that form into your favorite Star Wars characters. The best part being that it’s not going to cost you hundreds of dollars to get one. They are as low as $13.99 on the site.
Convention season is upon us! And if you regularly attend Celebration, Comicons, or different FanExpos then chances are you like to dress up as your favorite hero or villain.
If you want to skip the DIY work know that EZCosplay is is offering 15% off all of their all of their Star Wars costumes this May 4th using the promo code “SW15”
These look legit and are far better than most of the knockoffs that you’ll see on Amazon or Etsy this time of year.
