Another May the Fourth has come and gone. There was a lot of great celebrating going on and some great things came out on Star Wars. It is nearly impossible to cover them all, but Mania tried. The one thing we did not know was where “May the Fourth Be With You” originated. Did you know it was said by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on her election day in 1979? Crazy, right?!
We thought we cover a few more things that went down over the past weekend.

Hasbro’s Official Star Wars Black Series Figure Announcement
Hasbro had a Star Wars Black Series Selfie Party via Instagram on May the 4th. The idea was to take a picture with your Black Series Star Wars Figure and use the #BLACKSERIESSELFIE and #MAYTHE4TH. Later in the day they revealed the next Black Series figure with the help of Tom Kane (the voice of Yoda on The Clone Wars).
Hasbro's also revealed the SDCC's 2014 Star Wars Black Series Jabba The Hutt's Throne Room Exclusive.
We included our selfie as well. Yes, we are making a statement here.
Revenge of the Threesome: Star Wars Lightsaber Duel (Saber III)

Wars Day here
All in all it was a great May the Fourth. The popularity of this unofficial holiday is really growing. Imagine what the hype will be for next year’s unofficial Star Wars Day!
