Star Wars

Kotobukiya Emperor Palpatine Statue

Kotobukiya Emperor Palpatine Statue

“Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station!” Rally your evil figures with Kotobukiya’s tenth-scale statue of Star Wars’ villain. Palpatine can be removed from the throne, in case you want your stormtroopers to taste power for once.

Kylo Ren’s Relaxing Interrogation

Kylo Ren’s Relaxing Interrogation

“Where is the map? That’s okay, there’s no rush.” Auralnauts keeps finding good use for Kylo Ren’s voice and his close-up from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So sit back, relax, and slowly, but surely, remember where that freakin’ map is.

Was Star Wars Saved in Editing?

Was Star Wars Saved in Editing?

There’s been a long-circulating rumor that Star Wars was a real trainwreck until it hit the editing room. The Solomon Society digs into this tale to see if there’s any truth to it. The reality is that all movies require good editing and post-production to create a quality result.

Star Wars Nothing But Star Wars

Star Wars Nothing But Star Wars

To celebrate 40 years of Star Wars, Cinefamily TV created this epic video mixtape loaded with insane and obscure footage, from interviews, to parodies, to fan tributes, and much more. If you’re not prepared to spend 95 minutes right now, the trailer should convince you.

The Imperial Accordion March

The Imperial Accordion March

Ukraine accordion duo Vasyl Kravchuk and Viktor Kravchuk turn in a truly impressive cover of John Williams’ Imperial March from the Star Wars saga. We can imagine Darth Vader making a grand entrance to this music, while an army of stormtroopers dance the polka.

To Shake Darth Vader’s Hand

To Shake Darth Vader’s Hand

“We are stormtroopers. You know what we do best? We die.” Three stormtroopers are in the middle of a battle when one of them sees Darth Vader enter the fray. He geeks out and insists that they all come up to him in this short but sweet fan film. Captions available.

Star Wars Helmet Speakers

Star Wars Helmet Speakers

These full-size replicas of Imperial helmets double as Bluetooth speakers, each packing a 15-watt woofer, and a pair of 3-watt full-range drivers. They’re crazy expensive, so for those on more modest budgets, there’s also mini stormtrooper and mini K-2SO models.

Scandroid: The Force Theme

Scandroid: The Force Theme

Scandroid performs an awesome synthwave arrangement of John Williams’ classic Force Theme from the Star Wars saga. While it might not suit the timeless feel of the films, it certainly captures the essence of the era during which they achieved their greatest fame – the 1980s.

Invasion of the Droids

Invasion of the Droids

During Star Wars Celebration, a veritable army of robot builders got together in one room to let their R2-D2s, BB-8s, and other assorted droids meet each other. It’s like a dog park for droids, and it should be open every day of the year. Kudos to Michael McMaster for the video.

Adam Savage: Chewie & 3PO

Adam Savage: Chewie & 3PO

Adam Savage likes to go to conventions undercover. For Silicon Valley Comic Con, he dressed as Chewbacca, complete with an awesomely annoying C-3PO strapped to his back. We also learned that Chewie must go through an awful lot of hairspray.

The Force and The Fury

The Force and The Fury

Jason Satterlund’s short film is one of the better Star Wars fan films we’ve seen. Focused more on character and emotion than effects, it follows the story of a Jedi who crash-lands on a desolate planet, and finds himself at the mercy of a Sith who has a vendetta against him.

DIY Life-Size K-2SO Puppet

DIY Life-Size K-2SO Puppet

One of the best parts of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the snarky new droid K-2SO. Norm Chan from Tested recently met up with fan Darren Moser to take a look at the amazing full-scale K-2SO puppet suit he’s been building. We can’t wait to see the finished build.

Jabba & Crumb Geeki Tikis

Jabba & Crumb Geeki Tikis

ThinkGeek is offering up a limited-edition run of tiki mugs based on Jabba the Hutt and his irritating sidekick Salacious Crumb. Jabba’s body holds up to 40 oz – for jumbo polynesian cocktails, while Crumb’s 4oz. capacity is perfect for gulping down a double-double shot.

Star Wars Battlefront II (Trailer)

Star Wars Battlefront II (Trailer)

The sequel to the rebooted Star Wars Battlefront series promises to have the depth and customization that was lacking in its predecessor. It will have a single-player campaign mode, customization for each character and vehicle, new heroes and more.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Teaser)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Teaser)

Our first glimpse at Episode VIII picks up right where The Force Awakens left off, with Rey on a mysterious island, and hints at her learning to use her powers much like Luke learned from Yoda. But perhaps her role isn’t to be a Jedi, but to restore order to The Force.

Rogue One Honest Trailer

Rogue One Honest Trailer

(SPOILERS) Screen Junkies roasts Star Wars’ 200-million-dollar plot filler. Rogue One is the most exciting movie based on copying a file, despite the fact that Bodhi already managed to escape with a thumb dri– you know what? Vader made it all worth it.

The Force Awakens Bad Lip Reading

The Force Awakens Bad Lip Reading

Bad Lip Reading not only made us laugh our asses off with their take on Episode VII, they managed to get Mark Hamill himself to play the voice of Han Solo. Admiral Ackbar made us spit out our coffee, and “I like monkeeeee… You’re the monkey” is the new “I love you. I know.”

Making Rogue One’s Vader Scene

Making Rogue One’s Vader Scene

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s director Gareth Edwards spoke to Wired about how they made Darth Vader’s kickass scene at the end of the movie. It turns out they didn’t think of it until just 4 months before the film’s release. We also learn who currently has the Death Star plans.

Death Star Teapot & Mug

Death Star Teapot & Mug

As you can tell by their accents, the Imperials love tea time. ThinkGeek commissioned a weapon that annihilates productivity in the name of that sacred tradition. This ceramic set consists of a 12oz teapot and 6oz mug that can be stacked to look like the Death Star.

Droids in the News

Droids in the News

“My apologies. Most apologetic.” Jack of all Genius spoofs the viral BBC clip of the kids crashing a live news segment. This time it’s R2-D2 and BB-8 interrupting Darth Vader’s commentary. Be careful not to choke on your crisps, children.

How Rogue One Should’ve Ended

How Rogue One Should’ve Ended

“Save the rebellion, save the dream! Oh, and save your message!” Galen gives Bodhi the blueprints instead of just his Hallmark hologram, everyone shoots first and asks questions later, and Vader is still badass in HISHE’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story parody.

Po-Zu x Star Wars Shoes

Po-Zu x Star Wars Shoes

Ethical shoemaker Po-Zu will be releasing a line of officially licensed replicas of Star Wars character footwear. And at least one pair of feet. Dropping 8/2017, the first batch consists of Rey’s boots, Finn’s boots, Poe Dameron’s boots, Resistance sneakers and Wookiee feet.

R2-D2 with a Voice

R2-D2 with a Voice

Auralnauts envisions what Star Wars: A New Hope would have been like if instead of speaking in bleeps and beeps, R2-D2 could actually speak English. The only thing better would have been if they got Stephen Merchant to do the voice.

Star Wars Soy Sauce Dishes

Star Wars Soy Sauce Dishes

Keep your sushi hydrated with some salty soy sauce, and the help of some of Star Wars’ most iconic characters. These ceramic dishes feature heads of Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, C-3PO, and R2-D2. Even though they’re priced at $100, we still want them to turn up outside of Japan.
