    This is the Star Wars inspired home built by architecture firm Moon Hoon in South Korea. The 131 sq m (1,410 sq ft) house was built for around 200 million KRW (~$192,000) and is supposed to look like...I dunno, an AT-AT f***ed a Jawa Sandcrawler and laid an egg? Completed in ... / Continue →

    Just in time for fall comes this Star Wars Landspeeder pool float. As awesome as it is, it costs $200, which is entirely too expensive for something that's gonna get popped by a lightsaber when my friends and I are playing Jedi vs. Sith warriors in and around the pool. Also, ... / Continue →

    This is a fly-by of J.J. Abram's Millennium Falcon for the new Star Wars movie. Apparently J.J. and Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder like poking fun at each other via Twitter (I guess that's how you get your kicks when you're a rich, successful director instead of huntin... / Continue →

    Not to be outdone by the original Chewbacca dog, this is the Chewbacca dog that took 3rd place in a Petco Mexico Star Wars photo contest. I posted the first and second place winners after the jump (the cat took 2nd, the Photoshopped Yoda 1st), but they aren't as good. Which j... / Continue →

    This is Star S'Mores, a five-minute cookie themed Star Wars parody starring the cast of Sesame Street. Watch it with your kids. Don't have any kids? Watch it with a pet. No pets? What about a roommate? You live alone? Hmm, tell you what -- how about you Skype me and we'l... / Continue →

    What's that, Lassie?! Timmy fell in a well but you don't give a shit because he made you wear this costume?! This is the $24 Bantha Pet Costume created by Rubie's Costume Co. It makes your dog look like a bantha with a little Tusken Raider on its back. Don't even bother tr... / Continue →

    This is the final scene from Star Wars: Episode IV with composer John Williams' Victory March removed and various other sound effects added. It gives the scene a completely different feel and really makes you appreciate the effect a solid musical score can have on a movie. Li... / Continue →

    LEGO has just announced the latest addition to their Ultimate Collector Series of models -- a 1,996-piece version of Boba Fett's ship, the Slave I. The set will be released later this year for $200 and even comes with a Han Solo in carbonite minifig. FUN FACT: my roommate has... / Continue →

    This is a video of Harp Twins Camille and Kennerly performing a medley of Star Wars songs ('Main Theme', 'Victory Celebration' and 'Throne Room') on electric harps. I've always told myself that when I get rich enough I'll pay somebody to be playing a harp in the grand foyer o... / Continue →

    This is a first-person video of some guy jetskiing through a water-filled canyon on Lake Powell. It looks wild, especially since the water is so calm and its reflection so clear that it looks like the jetski is hovering. Me? I would have crashed into a wall and drowned on th... / Continue →

    This is a series of three alternate fan-made posters for Star War Episode VII designed by DeviantARTist AndrewSS7. Will the actual movie posters look this good? I doubt it. Of course, I've been wrong before. Like when I camped out to see all three prequels. Keep going for ... / Continue →

    Screen looks small. This is the Star Wars themed home theater built for an undisclosed couple (smart) by Seattle based custom theater designer DillonWorks. It looks legit. The perfect place to watch my favorite movie of the franchise, Star Wars Into Darkness. "GW? Please g... / Continue →

    This is the steampunk AT-AT walker made out of LEGO by LEGO-pro Markus1984. Now all Luke and the rest of the rebels need are some coal-powered dirigibles to fly around and tie all the legs together. Somebody really should shoot a steampunk remake of the original trilogy. Or ... / Continue →
  • Much like our local police, Stormtroopers must keep up with the most modern of military equipment--to protect themselves from, say, dark, unarmed figures they think look threatening in a hood. So, for Star Wars: Episode VII, director J.J. Abrams has given the Empire soldiers so... / Continue →

    We've seen an AT-AT cat playhouse before, and now there's an AT-ST. I don't really have any more info, I just found the pics on The Bloggess's site in between posts about her weird taxidermy fetish. So it looks like it's up to us to make up our own backstory. I'm going to go... / Continue →

    Hot Wheels unveiled this full-size Darth Vader mask inspired car at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. The car was built to promote the teensy $40 version they'll be releasing this fall. Damn, $40 for a Hot Wheels car? TIMES HAVE CHANGED. And so have I. Just kidding, I'm ... / Continue →

    These are the Samurai Darth Vader and Storm Trooper costumes available for pre-order from Costume Craze ($188 HERE and HERE). That's a little expensive for what I usually spend on my Halloween costume. "What do you usually spend on your Halloween costume?" One trip to the do... / Continue →

    This is the $60 custom painted Han Solo in carbonite toilet seat available from eBay seller derbycovers. It's only printed and painted though, it's not actually 3-D, so if you thought this was going to be a cheap way to experience sitting on Han Solo's face, think again. I kn... / Continue →

    This is a video of Galactic Empire forces taking over the Frankfurt Airport in Germany. No word if Germany forged an alliance with the Empire or if the airport was taken by force. I suspect the worse. "Which is?" Germany has always been a secret part of the Galactic Empire.... / Continue →

    This is a knife block that looks like an X-wing fighter (£70, ~$120). It comes with and holds five different knives (cook's, bread, carving, utility and paring). What's your favorite kind of knife? Mine is a ninja sword. "That is not a knife." And my penis isn't a laser gun... / Continue →
