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!

You can make guitars look like anything these days, and some creative folks are really pushing it. Travis Stevens just built this Han Solo frozen in carbonite guitar for Evanescence co-founder Ben Moody. I like the design even if it means the player is going to be strumming Han in some uh, interesting places.
Stevens isn’t a stranger to figuring out wacky custom instruments; he also came up with a rocking Millennium Falcon guitar. If you’re crazy about music and Star Wars, I think you should get in touch with the the artist, order these two guitars and add this R2-D2 design. Then again, I’m an enabler when it comes to buying anything Star Wars.

Star Wars Weekends kicks off at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 18. The park comes up with cool activities for the event each year, and this year they’ve outdone themselves. You can experience the process of being frozen in carbonite and get an action figure as evidence. No word on whether carbon sickness is included in that package.
The experience will take about 30 minutes, and your figure will be shipped to you in four weeks. The custom figurines will feature your face on Han’s body, and it can be yours for just $99.95. Inside the Magic reports:
Guests at Star Wars Weekends this year will be given the opportunity to step into a “Carbon Freezing Chamber,” located near The American Idol Experience in the theme park, and have their faces 3-D scanned using multiple cameras to create a 8-inch figurine depicting themselves frozen in carbonite. It also comes with a light-up wristband.
Though I wish the body part of the figure was also customized, I can’t get over how awesome this is. And I’m bitter (again) that Disney Florida gets Star Wars Weekends while we get nothing at Disneyland.

We’ve seen a Steve Jobs in Carbonite iPhone case in the past, but that was quickly shot down by Apple laywers. We expect Lucasfilm to do something similar with this high-res Han Solo version being sold on Etsy, but if you act quickly you can grab one for only $14.

You probably didn’t need another reason to attend Comic-Con in San Diego this year, but the fact of the matter is that it’s the only place (outside of eBay most likely) that you’ll be able to get your hands on one of these Jar Jar Binks figures froze in carbonite from Hasbro.
As most hardcore Star Wars fans would guess, this figure is based on the life-size version that resides at Lucasfilm.

Yeah, it’s $300—but it’s also big, well crafted and it actually lights up! Check out more pics after the break.

This is so perfect. Unfortunately, the Steve Jobs in carbonite iPhone decal has disappeared from society6′s website in the last 24 hours for reasons unknown—though we suspect Apple’s lawyers had something to do with it.

Apparently, this is how Boba Fett sets his prices for Jabba.
