Chewbacca Cabinet Door

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.

The People vs. George Lucas

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.

Clone Wars Minifigs

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.

Death Star Disco Tee

Death Star Disco Tee
Buy

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.

TIE Pilot

TIE Pilot
Buy

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.

Book: Deathtroopers

Book: Deathtroopers
Buy

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.

R2D2 Projector

R2D2 Projector

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!

Stormtroopers x Rock Band

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.

R2Steam2

R2Steam2

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 Spring ’09

Buddhapparel Spring ’09
Buy

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.

Star Wars Kites

Star Wars Kites

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.

Boba Fett/Carbonite Statue

Boba Fett/Carbonite Statue
Buy

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.

Star Wars Talk Show

Star Wars Talk Show

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.

Artoo’s Premium Beer Tee

Artoo’s Premium Beer Tee
Buy

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.

Spaceship Comparison

Spaceship Comparison

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!

Darth Vader Mugshot Tee

Darth Vader Mugshot Tee
Buy

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…

Star Wars: Retold

Star Wars: Retold

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.

Papercraft R2-D2

Papercraft R2-D2

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.

The Force Trainer

The Force Trainer
Buy

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.

DIY: BaR2D2

DIY: BaR2D2

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.

Star Wars Clock

Buy

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.

Lightsaber Nunchucks

Lightsaber Nunchucks

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.

Buy

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.

Starship Xmas Tree

Starship Xmas Tree

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.

Paper Millennium Falcon

Paper Millennium Falcon

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.
