Back in the 1970s if you wanted to see more of your favorite movies, you went to the grocery story with a couple of quarters and bought Topps trading cards. If the thrill of seeing photographs from every corner of the latest Star Wars movie fills you with nostalgia, then this is for you. Titan Magazines’ Star Wars Insider periodically releases deep dives behind the scenes of the latest Disney+ TV series–we reviewed the first from The Mandalorian (discussed here and here at borg) and the first volume of the second season of The Mandalorian here. The latest, Star Wars Insider Presents: Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season Two Collectors Edition Vol. 2, is just as full of concept artwork, poster art, and photographs from the series, this time focused on Chapters (episodes) 13-16. It has page after page of the galaxy’s favorite green, long-eared sidekick, and it’s like a souvenir book, full of good stuff from the second season. As with the past editions, it has more mock-ups of Topps trading cards, and more beasts, planets, ships, battles, armor, and characters. It’s available now in a glossy paperback magazine format here at Amazon.

In addition to photos of stars Din Djarin and Grogu, readers will see more of guest characters, including Ahsoka Tano and Luke Skywalker.
Plus returning characters get their spotlight, like Moff Gideon, Boba Fett, and Fennic Shand.
Back in the 1970s and 1980s we would have pulled a year’s supply of art from this book and affixed it inside our lockers with tape. The images are a fantastic reminder of why this series is among Lucasfilm’s best works.
Contributions in the book come from the visionary minds and pens of artists and designers that inspired the final production sets, costumes, and props, with works by Doug Chiang, Christian Alzmann, Ryan Church, Khang Le, Erik Tiemens, Brian Matyas, and Anton Grandert.
Don’t miss this look at four great episodes from the Star Wars galaxy. Pick up Star Wars Insider Presents: Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season Two Collectors Edition Vol. 2 available now here at Amazon in the U.S. and here at Forbidden Planet in the UK.
