E-11: Standard Issues

This hilarious Star Wars fan film is basically an Imperial unboxing video. After the Clone Wars, a Stormtrooper takes a look at a brand new blaster designed to improve their hit rate.

40 Fingers: Star Wars

40 Fingers: Star Wars

The members of 40 Fingers are back with another wonderful guitar performance. This time, they took on two classic compositions from John Williams’ Star Wars catalog, including the Main Theme and epic Emperor’s March, imbuing the tracks with their richly-layered acoustic sound.

Sculpting Yoda-Hulk

Sculpting Yoda-Hulk

After making a BB-8/Hulkbuster mashup, Adam of North of the Border imagines what it might be like if two of our favorite green characters combined forces. The figure features the muscular body of the Hulk with Yoda’s head, hands, and feet. Smash or do not smash. There is no try.

Moon Knight with Lightsabers

Moon Knight with Lightsabers

You know what makes any fight sequence better? Lightsabers, naturally. ActiveSufi took one of the great action sequences from the Disney+ series Moon Knight and upgraded our hero’s weapons with plasma power. Is Oscar Isaac the key to unlocking a Star Wars/Marvel crossover universe? (Thanks, Rob!)

The Language of Star Wars Design

The Language of Star Wars Design

There are hundreds of unique ships and vehicles in the Star Wars universe, yet the vast majority seem cohesive and make sense as a collection. Spaceship fanatic EC Henry offers his thoughts on the secret sauce that holds Star Wars design together and offers guidelines you can follow for designing your own ships.

LEGO UCS Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder

LEGO UCS Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder
Buy

The Ultimate Collector’s Series version of the Landspeeder is the most accurate LEGO model of Luke’s daily driver yet. The 1890-piece has a screen-correct color scheme, a custom-molded windscreen, a detailed dashboard and driving controls, and comes with updated Luke and C-3PO Minifigures. It drops May the 4th, 2022.

Pewter Death Star Container

Pewter Death Star Container
Buy

Measuring in at just 4″ in diameter, Royal Selangor’s pewter Death Star is a 1:1,600,000 scale replica of the Empire’s deadly space station. But rather than exploding when you hit its exhaust port, this one splits in two, so you can store small trinkets inside — a very special collectible for serious Star Wars fans.

Death Star Coffee Mug

Death Star Coffee Mug
Buy

That’s no moon. It’s a coffee cup! Silver Buffalo’s Star Wars coffee mug looks just like the Death Star – assuming you squished it a bit, cut off its top, and slapped on a handle. The oversize 20 oz. ceramic mug has more vulnerabilities than just its exhaust port, as it’s not dishwasher- or microwave-safe.

LEGO Death Star Trench Run Diorama

Buy

LEGO continues to bring their Star Wars game with some creative new sets. We just saw a Luke and Yoda on Dagobah playset, and now we have a tiny version of the Death Star trench run scene. This 665-piece set includes tiny versions of Luke’s X-Wing fighter, pursued by a duo of TIE fighters and Vader’s TIE Advanced fighter.

The Book of Ice Cream: Chapter 1

The Book of Ice Cream: Chapter 1

Auralnauts works their sonic magic on The Book of Boba Fett, retelling the story of the professional bounty hunter and amateur crime lord as a lifelong quest for ice cream. Frankly, we’d take a Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake or Toasted Almond bar over a bucket of spice any day.

The Book of Boba Fett: 1985 Edition

The Book of Boba Fett: 1985 Edition

“He doesn’t take no for an answer, unless he’s asked to. And then he does…” The Book of Boba Fett gets reimagined as a cheesy 1985 TV action series by the mad minds of Auralnauts. Released just two years after Return of the Jedi, this version also fits better into the overall timeline.

Jake the Jedi

Jake the Jedi

Every Star Wars fan has heard of Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Mace Windu. But Goat-on-a-Stick introduced us to one Jedi we’ve not come across before. His name is Jake. He’s only mastered a single Jedi skill but it’s more than enough to get by. We wonder if he’s the same Jake that works for State Farm.

The Battlefield

The Battlefield

(PG-13: Language) This amusing Star Wars fan film follows the story of a freshly-minted Stormtrooper who discovers that what he learned at the Imperial Academy wasn’t nearly enough to prepare him for the realities of a war against the Rebellion and the Jedi. Created by AFK using Unreal Engine 5. (Thanks, Rob!)

LEGO expands its series of Star Wars mini helmet models with the addition of Luke Skywalker’s Red Five helmet, The Mandalorian’s helmet, and a Dark Trooper helmet. Each helmet measures appx. 7″ tall, and they range from 584 to 693 bricks. The see-through orange goggles on Luke’s Rebel helmet are particularly clever.

The Book of Boba Fett Cello Cover

The Book of Boba Fett Cello Cover

Between the excellent theme music for The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, Ludwig Göransson is setting himself as the Star Wars franchise’s new go-to composer. Sit back and enjoy this great cover of the Boba Fett theme performed in three parts on cello by Nicholas Yee.

The Empire Strikes Axe

The Empire Strikes Axe

Star Wars tribute band Galactic Empire bangs out an awesome hard rock cover version of John Williams’ The Imperial March, giving the Empire’s most iconic theme song an appropriately razor-sharp edge to accompany all of their evil deeds. Even Emperor Palpatine approves, and he’s not easy to please.

Stormtrooper Bookends

Stormtrooper Bookends
Buy

If there’s one thing we know about Imperial Stormtroopers in Star Wars, it’s that they’re not very good at their jobs. Perhaps they’d be better at holding up your books instead of defending the Empire. This pair of resin bookends features a duo of white-clad soldiers doing their best to keep your books from falling over.

Armed with cardboard, a magic marker, and a ceramic plate Millenium Falcon, Pla-Gabu (Dark Side) recreated the scene from Return of the Jedi where they blow up the second Death Star. Here’s the original sequence for comparison, and more of Pla-Gabu’s low-budget Star Wars scenes here.

Well, you’re in luck, thanks to BBC culture editor Christian Blauvelt and his handy Star Wars survival guide.

Levitating Millennium Falcon
