"I was so excited when I found out that I got to use John Van Fleet and Daryl Mandryk's art for our Jaina Solo and Mara Jade shirts," said Ashley Eckstein, "and I am honored that Del Rey would provide us with free books for our fans. Also, I could not be more proud to offer another Dave Filoni exclusive design. The season 5 finale meant so much to us and we felt compelled to capture the moment on a shirt design. We will be giving away 100 signed portraits taken by Joel Aron with the sale of each shirt."
