Look up in the sky. It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a glow-in-the-dark Sith Lord!

Acme Archives and geek-goods purveyor Super7 Store are teaming to release new, limited-edition numbered "Star Wars" prints that debut on May 4, Star Wars Day, starting with "Space Vader" -- an ominous constellation of a certain Sith Lord.

Silkscreened on black 16x20-inch heavy archival stock with light gray and glow-in-the-dark inks, 200 "Space Vader" prints will be available Sunday, May 4, at noon PT online at Super 7 Store for $50 each.

The limited-edition "Star Wars" series continues with a "Tauntaun Cuts" silkscreen print that shows off the choicest cut of meat on a creature that smells bad inside and out, and is always Luke warm. It's also priced at $50, but the release date has yet to be determined.

The third print in the series pays homage to the "X-Wing Fighter," which connects the classic "Star Wars" Galaxy with an era of gaming from long, long ago. Again, this one's priced at $50, with a release date yet to be determined.

Meanwhile, fans who happen to be in San Francisco can stop by the Super7 Store at 1427 Haight Street from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for a May the 4th Be With You celebration. Stormtroopers from the local 501st garrison and other "Star Wars" characters will be on hand to take Imperial selfies. There will be a "Star Wars" mini-arcade, a photo booth, and more.
