We’ve played this video a dozen times and we still can’t get enough: dude discovers his cabinet sounds like Chewbacca, saves George Lucas a million bucks on sound effects.
If you liked Fanboys, get to know real Star Wars fans (and detractors) in The People vs. George Lucas, a documentary due out in 2010 which takes a grand tour of the Republic franchise.
LEGO modder Morgan19 is back with a collection of custom Star Wars minifigs; these really plumb the depths of geekdom, including everything from Tusken Assassins to Ithorian Mercs.
Proof that even Emperor Palpatine gets down on the dance floor, this glittery Death Star Disco t-shirt by James Lillis seems more at home in Studio 54 than Docking Bay 94.
The Empire thinks they’re expendable, but we think this imported TIE Pilot figure by Medicom is highly collectible; it’s film accurate down to the oversized helmet and stands 12″ tall.
It may sound like the plot from some ridiculous zombie movie, but Joe Schreiber’s Deathtroopers is the real deal: it’s the first Star Wars horror novel, due out before Halloween ’09.
This R2D2 Projector is on the Light Side of The Force, with 1500 lumens, up to 260″ pics at 1024×768; a 20W speaker, CD/DVD player and Millenium Falcon remote. Thanks, Joe!
LIve from Game On Night in Queensland, Australia: Herovision is a live video setup that lets ordinary folks (as well as Darth Vader’s 501st Legion) groove on stage using Rock Band.
If Vader was Luke’s father, R2Steam2 is R2D2’s old man; this steampunk’d version of a Hasbro toy is fitted with two steam engines, a Cheddar boiler, brass accents and pressure gauges.
Andy Warhol’s iconography gets Imperial with The Vader Project, a collection of 100 custom fiberglass Vader helmets by street artists including Frank Kozik, Marc Ecko and Dalek.
Buddhapparel’s Spring 2009 collection is rockin’, from the airbrushed-stylings of Jungle to the Phantom of Hip-Hop; our favorite is a bit of an in-“Sidious” mashup: Storm Raiders.
We’re not sure how airworthy these Star Wars Kites, but with Spring just around the corner we can’t think of a better way to spend a sunny day in the park; they’ll be in stock 4/12.
Talk about a two-fer: not only does Boba Fett strike a bad-ass pose in this animated-style statue, but he’s backed with a freshly-frozen Han set in a Carbonite slab; it’ll be available 9/09.
Daddy issues? Incest? DNA tests? The more we think about it, Star Wars was made for Jerry Springer; CollegeHumor’s Ackbar! Talk Show dishes the dirt on Luke, Darth and Leia.
A long time ago, in a bar far, far away, R2D2 spent his retirement years peddling beer to intergalactic coeds; warning: Artoo’s Premium Beer may turn you over to the dark side.
A combined Star Wars, Star Trek and Babylon 5 battle would a sci-fi geekfest of epic proportions; until then, this comparison of spacecraft sizes is a fitting stand-in. Thanks, Kenneth!
Even Sith Lords aren’t above the law, as shown by this Mugshot tee complete with Ep. IV birthdate; Darth, next time you take your TIE for a spin up Mulholland, go easy on the Corellian Ale…
Created by freelance artist Joe Nicolosi, Star Wars: Retold is pure cinematic gold; it’s told from the point of view of his friend Amanda, who has never seen an entire Star Wars film.
Those intrepid papercrafters continue to amaze us, this time with a beautifully detailed version of our favorite astromech droid; R2-D2 comes complete with rotating head and legs.
Okay, so you won’t be tossing X-Wings around anytime soon with The Force Trainer, but it does read your brain waves and “train” you to move a ball upwards by merely concentrating.
Sure, robots could save lives, but truth be told we’ll probably make them serve beer: Jamie Price’s BaR2D2 is an RC mobile bar with an elevator and six-bottle shot dispenser.
While we’re expecting a copyright take-down notice any day now, this Star Wars clock by YOUgNeek has us reminiscing of Death Star trench runs and days spent womp-rat hunting.
No special effects here: this Lightsaber Nunchucks video is actually a pair of 6″ glow sticks attached with a link chain and then twirled around in front of a high speed camera.
Didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas? True Jedi Masters won’t settle for anything less than this life-sized R2-D2, complete with retaining bolt, lights and sounds. Limited to 250.
You haven’t geeked out Christmas until you’ve decked the halls with starship models like this tree by JD Hancock; it’s primarily for Trekkies, thought we do spy an X-Wing.
The YT-1300 that made the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs is also the lightest, with this awesome papercraft version of the famed Millenium Falcon; get the full instructions here.
