carbonite

han solo toilet seat

Han may not like the idea of being frozen in carbonite and used as a toilet seat cover in your bathroom, but he’s frozen in carbonite, so it’s not like he can say much.

This toilet seat is made by a company called Derby Covers and, apparently, all of their toilet seats are custom painted and airbrushed. That’s got to look interesting on a resume!

They cover all sorts of different fandoms, so I’m guessing that if Han’s tortured face isn’t your thing, you’ll find something you like.

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.

If you’ve been filling your drinks with Han Solo in carbonite ice cubes, then you need to make these drawer pulls to match. You start out with the silicone Han Solo in Carbonite Ice Tray but instead of filling it with water you use Sculpey Premo Clay to make your mold and toss in a nut so they can be screwed on in place of your existing drawer pulls. Once they’re cooked you paint them the color of carbonite and you’re done.

That screaming skull face that everyone sees in the craters on the moon is nothing compared to what NASA found on Mercury. Their Messenger probe found a raised shape on the surface of the planet that looks an awful lot like Han Solo frozen in carbonite. And because they are the best of nerds, NASA had this little press release to explain the photo.

A portion of the terrain surrounding the northern margin of the Caloris basin hosts an elevated block in the shape of a certain carbonite-encased smuggler who can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

If there are two things you should remember, it’s not to cross a Hutt, and that Mercury’s surface can throw up all kinds of surprises. This block may be part of the original surface that pre-dates the formation of Caloris, which was shaped by material ejected during the basin-forming event.

Well done, NASA, well done.

When a friend turns to you and asks if you can freeze them in carbonite, the answer should always be yes. That’s how you know you have good friends – and talented ones! Instructables user thorssoli (Shawn Thorsson) didn’t have any Ugnaughts handy so he worked with his friend Jenny to cast her face and hands to put her likeness in place of Han Solo’s. Then it was a matter of laying out and building the carbonite box and attaching the body and sealing it in with resin. Finally, they added LED panels on the sides and painted everything. Voila! One frozen body ready for Boba Fett.

That’s all oversimplified, of course. Thorsson wrote up an extremely thorough how-to for Instructables and if you are the sort of person who likes seeing all the gory details of how things are made, you’ll love reading it. Even though I have no intention of making a person frozen in carbonite right now, I devoured the tutorial with fascination. Thorsson is one talented dude.

This 12″ tall vinyl bank features Han Solo frozen in carbonite on a freezing-chamber base. Although, I’d have my reservations about trusting all my money to a smuggler with a debt to Jabba. Preorder now and start lining Han’s frozen pockets in March of 2013.

If I paid off a bounty hunter to nab a smuggler that I later encased in carbonite, I would turn my prize into a nice desk. Then I might make a mold for giant ice cubes. But that’s just me. Other’s might turn him into a USB port—kind of like this version by Etsy seller PariahProjects.

The hub is USB-powered and features four USB 2.0 ports. Grab this handmade item while you still can!
