vader monument 1

Welcome the full power of the Dark side into your home with a life-sized Darth Vader monument based on the vintage Kenner figure. At a whopping 6 feet and 9 inches tall, it’s not exactly a small addition. This is the sort of statue you build a Star Wars room around; you don’t want to just plop into any old place. I’d recommend installing a speaker that plays Darth Vader’s lines beside the statue so you can scare anyone who comes near it. From the product page:

Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the latest addition to their line of popular life-sized monuments with the life-sized Kenner-inspired Darth Vader Monument! Digitally scanned from an authentic mint-condition 3 ¾” action figure and reproduced to a staggering SIX FEET NINE INCHES tall, this fully articulated monument also includes an authentic extending lightsaber, and re-scaled vinyl cape! A stunning centerpiece for any true collector’s display, this limited edition hand-painted monument includes a matching certificate of authenticity.

Pre-order the figure now to receive it in the first quarter of 2015.

sherlock table 1

I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t like to add more Sherlock to his or her life, and this silhouette stool by Liljalock is a great way to incorporate the detective into your home decor. Apparently, she was bored on a Wednesday evening and cut out side profiles of Sherlock and John Watson and fit them together to create a base for stool. Add some paint and a top, and tada! You can sit on top of their heads while considering your latest case or your grocery list.

bean bag throne 1

Want to bring a little taste of King’s Landing into your home? Nerd by Night has come up with a way to turn the Iron Throne into the most epic bean bag chair ever. You’ll have to put in time and effort to create this throne and steps include painting the fabric, sewing it into place, and stuffing it with foam and bean bag beans. But at the end of the day, all the sweat and tears are going to be completely worth it.

claptrap 1

As far as robots go, Claptrap isn’t exactly the smartest or most awesome. The character from Borderlands does manage to be pretty cute though – I mean, he has beatboxing skills for goodness’ sake. The folks over at Our Nerd Home are such fans of the little guy that they made a Claptrap trash can. Functional geeky projects for the home are the best.

They created a tutorial for you to follow along and build a Claptrap disposal unit of your very own. You’ll have to round up quite a few supplies like a step-on trash can, cables, and cardboard, but the end result looks like it’s well worth the trouble.

han in carbonite rug

As a Star Wars geek, I can say that I wish I had my very own Han In Carbonite at home and, while I love this amazing life-size Han In Carbonite from Sideshow, I need to look for something a little more in my budget.

Luckily, ThinkGeek has a solution that let’s you have your carbonite Han and a rug that ties the room together.

Lay Han down on the floor or hang him on the wall as a tapestry. Heck, I won’t judge. Just promise me you’ll do Jabba’s laugh at least once.

It comes in two sizes: small/medium (31 1/2″ x 71 1/2″) or large/x-large (39″ x 90 1/2″) and is in stock now.

These beautiful area rugs feature actual photos of the nebulas in the small and large Magellanic Clouds as photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope. Each of the designs is made with 1,620,000 dots per square meter, which works out to over a thousand dots per square inch. This makes the resolution of the rugs darn close to the maximum resolution that the Hubble can capture. There are three different designs you can choose from with each rug measuring about 7′ x 5′. Delivery time is six weeks.

Looks like the space shuttle’s number one fan lives in China. This replica of the space shuttle was built by a 60-year-old farmer in Quangdong province and sits proudly on top of his roof. The model is covered with tiles and even has an American flag logo on the side. Bet no one ever has any trouble finding his house.

cardboard iron throne

Forget turning to bloody wars and deadly battles to win the Iron Throne of Westeros – just use a cardboard version to make any chair the most important one in all of the land! NOW TV and The Telegraph made the faux “throne of swords” pictured above, and it can be attached to any seat you wish with minimal effort. They hosted a giveaway to bequeath the throne upon one lucky person.

Sadly, that means you can’t buy one. If you wanted to acquire the fake throne in true Game of Thrones fashion, you’d find the winner and steal it, but it might be easier to buy some cardboard and get to work on your own.
