    This is the R2-D2 measuring cup set available from ThinkGeek ($20). The stacked cups actually make up his body, and his utility arms are nested measuring spoons! Admittedly, I bet R2 would be a great helper in the kitchen. C-3PO? C-3PO is not a good helper anywhere. "Targ... / Continue →

    These are the X-Wing and TIE Fighter engagement rings designed by Paul Michael Design (of Wonder Woman, Pokeball and Triforce ring fame). Because, just like Beyonce sings in that one song, "If you liked then you shoulda put a X-Wing on it". Please, somebody just come break my... / Continue →

    You know what's behind the helmet? Tears. In heartbreaking news, these are photos of 4-year old Jack Robinson's Star Wars themed funeral. Because life isn't fair in the least, Jack, of Hampshire, England, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and developed a bucket li... / Continue →

    This are two video demos of a 5-foot, 19-pound X-wing fighter made out of PVC pipe and three coptor rotors. I want to train a squirrel to sit in it, then I'll fly him up to all the best acorns in all the trees. We will be best friends for life, until he's hit by a car. Sobbi... / Continue →

    This is the $7,000 replica of Han Solo frozen in carbonite being sold by Sideshow Collectibles. The only thing I've ever collected from a sideshow? A handful of the bearded lady's beard. Frozen Han will be available for preorder starting April 10th, and they even offer payme... / Continue →

    This is the 1974 Chevy Malibu that Star Wars fan Bill Deacon turned into a replica of the Millennium Falcon. "It's uncanny." Right? For a second there I thought I was just looking at a screencap from one of the movies. But it's not, there's actually an old car under there.... / Continue →

    This is the C-3PO Star Wars action figure carrying case that's been repurposed as an electric guitar. Me? I've always imagined C-3PO crushed in a Death Star trash compactor then cut into cubes and repurposed as paper weights. Everyone knows the Darth Vader collector's case... / Continue →

    This is the $45 Darth Vader Toaster available for pre-order (they ship in July) from the BigBadToyStore. It toasts Vader's head on one slice of bread and the Star Wars logo on the other. It's basically the exact same as this Darth Vader toaster I posted back in 2008, except t... / Continue →

    OMG, SO MANY BUTTONS TO PUSH! This is a worthwhile video (at least skip around) of Jelani Eddington performing the Star Wars main theme on one of the largest pipe organs in the world, a Wurlitzer theater organ with some 8,000-pipes. For reference, I only have one pipe. "Your... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the R2-D2 inspired jerseys the Durham Bulls minor league baseball team will be sporting on Star Wars Night, May 4th. Not bad. But more importantly, what do the first 1,000 fans to the stadium get? Ewok bobbleheads? Plastic lightsabers? *actually takes the... / Continue →

    These are the R2-D2 swim trunks available from everybody's favorite store in the mall next to an Auntie Anne's Pretzels, Hot Topic. They're on sale for $22.13. For some reason in their online store they're in the girl's section, but that's definitely a dude in the picture. A... / Continue →

    Well, the football season is over and the Redskins lost -- AGAIN. We came close though. "You only won three games." I'm not even sure if we should be considered a professional team anymore. Maybe a couple years of arena football and we can come back. This is a series of fo... / Continue →

    This is a video of students practicing their lightsabering at the Ludosports Lightsaber Combat Academies in Italy (there are seven so far). That is a whole lot of lightsaber fighting. You can go to their official website to read about all the different styles they teach, whic... / Continue →

    This is the series of prototype Star Wars character rings designed by J.A.P. in the late 90's to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise. So you can't get them anymore. Sucks too because I really had my eye on that Rancor. Could you imagine having a pet Rancor? That... / Continue →
