C-3PO Body Paint

C-3PO Body Paint

We’ve seen makeup artist Kay Pike’s amazing body paint creations before, but this golden protocol droid from Star Wars might be her best yet – with those exposed wires in her belly and flat eyes painted on her eyelids. The red arm from The Force Awakens is a nice touch.

IKEA Death Star Lamp

IKEA Death Star Lamp

Instructables contributor MariaK64 shows us how to transform a IKEA PS 2014 pendant lamp into an exploding Death Star with nothing more than paint, masking tape, and some artistic skill. But instead of firing at the exhaust port, simply pull the cord to blow it to bits.

Chogy C-3PO & R2-D2 Action Figures

Toymaker Chogy came up with the coolest version of C-3PO we’ve ever seen. Chogy turned the protocol droid into a dude clad in gold pants and zip-up hoodie, with Artoo as his skateboard. The wiring undershirt is a neat idea. Limited to 20 pieces.

Star War: The Third Gathers

The Untold Story of Darth Vader

The Untold Story of Darth Vader

While its title is a bit hyperbolic, Looper’s look at one of the most recognized and downright evil dudes in the history of movies is still a good watch, and provides at least a couple of tidbits about the character and the actors that portrayed him that we didn’t already know.

Silent Night by Chewbacca

Silent Night by Chewbacca

If Film Theory How It Should Have Ended is to be believed, Chewbacca played the long con. Over the decades, he’s used his limited screen time in Star Wars movies to piece together a holiday tune. One of those things that’s funnier the second time around.
