Speculation Spotlight

Ahsoka Tano Is Hot

The announcement back in March that Rosario Dawson would guest star as a live-action Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian season 2 has created quite the disturbance in the Force!  The news has prompted collectors to seek our her appearances in comic books with her first and other early appearances realizing big money.  Raw copies of her first appearance in The Clone Wars #1 has sold for $350 - 400 which is higher than the price of raw copies of the first appearance of Boba Fett in Star Wars #42 due to the much lower print run of this Dark Horse title.  In September 2008, The Clone Wars #1 was the 2nd best selling Star Wars title behind Legacy #28 and sold an initial estimated 26,591 copies according to Comichron.

And the Dark Horse 100 variant which is limited to just 1000 copies has seen a few prices above $1000, propelling that comic well above the price of Star Wars #1 from 1977.
