Marvel has released the Cover Artwork for the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Issue #5, with yet again more awesome artwork by Tommy Lee Edwards.
A TWO CUTTING SWORD!
KENDOH’S crew of mercenaries spring their heist to steal one of the rarest relics in the universe – the hilt of the fabled SWORD OF KHASHYUN from DOK-ONDAR’S DEN OF ANTIQUITIES. But with the FIRST ORDER tightening its grip on BLACK SPIRE OUTPOST and the notorious RED FURY STORMTROOPERS on their trail, can these master thieves survive long enough to collect their prize? And does Dok-Ondar have one last gambit to play?
Via Disney, we get our first look at two shopping locations, both for the dark side and light side shoppers in your life. Let’s take a look!

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Black Spire by Delilah S Dawson Audio CD Cover
After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower—and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Black Spire by Delilah S Dawson – Cover Artwork by Darren Tan
A planet of lush forests, precarious mountains, and towering, petrified trees, Batuu is on the furthest possible frontier of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space. The rogues, smugglers, and adventurers who eke out a living on the largest settlement on the planet, Black Spire Outpost, are here to avoid prying eyes and unnecessary complications. Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.
To survive, Vi will have to seek out the good-hearted heroes hiding in a world that redefines scum and villainy. With the help of a traitorous trooper and her acerbic droid, she begins to gather a colorful band of outcasts and misfits, and embarks on a mission to spark the fire of resistance on Batuu—before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.

Disney has released some awesome new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Concept Art showcasing the main eatery, Docking Bay 7 and the Milk Stand that previously had no concept art for at all, also there’s a cracking shot of the Creature Stall.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Docking Bay 7
This will be the main quick service within the land and is described as a multi-purpose transport shuttle docked atop a large hangar for traveling food shuttles. That’s where Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has converted his modified Sienar-Chall Utilipede-Transport into a popular mobile kitchen and restaurant. His travels across the galaxy allow him to fill his pantry with exotic ingredients, and he’s proud to present Tuggs’ Grub, a “traveling diner for diners traveling,” inspired by dishes he created during his time working for Maz Kanata on Takodana.
At this restaurant housed in a working hangar bay, choose from a variety of dishes prepared with ingredients from across the galaxy—all of it delicious, but none of it familiar. Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has docked a food freighter loaded with fresh supplies and he’s ready to satisfy the appetites of visitors and locals alike with an array of exotic offerings. His planet-hopping travels allow him to prepare fare with unusual flavors that delight customers.
Once you’ve got your grub, sit inside the spacious hanger, or grab a table in the rustic outdoor seating area surrounded by the crumbling walls of the old marketplace.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Creature Stall
Disney describes Creature Stall as this:
At this exotic shop, you’re free to explore as you peek into cages and crates filled with hard-to-find species from across the galaxy. Bina, the stall’s proprietor, scours star systems to keep this storefront stocked with unique companions for her customers.
Marvel at a large collection of cackling Kowakian monkey-lizards, the rambunctious pets popular with shadowy underworld figures—including Hutts. Most of the creatures here are available for purchase—restrictions may apply to rathtars.
If you look closer you’ll recognise some familiar creatures, even the Worrt from Return of the Jedi.
Even behind the Worrt you might recognise a creature from one of Ralph McQuarrie’s early concept art for Dagobah… the Krykna Spider.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Milk Stand
The new Milk Stand concept art shows the vendors at this quirky stall offering travellers an invigorating, refreshing drink that’s a favourite among the locals on Tatooine or Ahch-To
Luke Skywalker can be seen enjoying blue milk in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, and green milk in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi.
Thirsty visitors can now try both these exotic galactic delicacies for themselves—as they live their own Star Wars adventures.
