Hot Toys never fails to make great looking figures, so it’s no surprise that they nailed the details on their new Han Solo and Chewbacca figures for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You can buy each figure separately, or in a collectible set and they’re really gorgeous.

The Han Solo figure has new head and hand sculpts, his TFA outfit including his winter gear, an all-new blaster pistol, and a specially designed figure stand.

The Chewbacca figure features a new face sculpt with an articulated jaw, multi-layered fabric hair with various shades of brown throughout his whole body, a new bowcaster and bandolier bag, and a specially designed figure stand.

The collectible set includes three additional thermal detonators and a remote detonator along with two Starkiller Base-themed bases. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Artist Andrew Dat Tran has taken a selection of Game of Thrones characters and reimagined them as part of the Star Wars universe. As you’ll see, the execution is fantastic.

Thanks to this Lightsaber Tool Kit, I’ll feel pretty badass when I open up that one annoying gadget that has batteries behind a plate with screws. And that IKEA furniture? It will tremble in fear.

With the Star Wars Lightsaber Tool Kit, you get a set of 3 screwdrivers. Now you can approach those repairs with confidence, because you’ll have a lightsaber by your side. Choose your weapon: Vader’s flathead, Luke’s Phillips, or Yoda’s shorter flathead. Judge it by its size, do you? Hmm? Well, actually yes. It’s good for getting into smaller places where its evil, larger companion won’t fit.

Believe it or not, there’s also a video. [click to continue…]

suicide star wars

The rule is that every popular thing will be mashed up with Star Wars at some point. I’m sure it’s written down on some ancient slab in a museum somewhere.

So, someone had to do a Star Wars / Suicide Squad mashup trailer, and The Unusual Suspects answered the call of the gods.

Watch it below. [click to continue…]

Carrie Fisher has been through some serious ups and downs in her life, but she’s always been honest and managed to have a sense of humor about it.

To that end, she’s helming a new advice column for The Guardian called, oh so aptly, Advice From The Dark Side. [click to continue…]

LEGO enthusiast LegoSpencer has faithfully recreated the TIE Fighter hangar from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You know, from that scene where Poe and Finn totally steal a shiny black TIE Fighter shortly before nosediving into Jakku?

It took about six weeks to make, and contains a number of lovely little details that I damn near swooned over. You can get a closer look in the breakdown video below. [click to continue…]

Geddit? Cool? It’s wordplay. It’s a pun. C’mon guys, I spent a lot of time working on that headline. I stayed up late!

Look, if you’re not going to appreciate my, frankly, magnificent witticisms then you can at least turn your attention to the table itself. Custom-built by Tom Spina Designs for a client, this table has a body of painted, textured foam topped with a piece of precision-cut glass, and garnished with one (1) lightsaber. It’s very, ahem, ice work. Aheh heh heh.

Really? Still no? Tch. Some people wouldn’t know a good joke if it came up and clocked ’em in the gob.

star wars holograms

I think that every Star Wars fan wants a hologram-projecting droid. At least, I do.

These full-parallax Star Wars 3D hologram displays might be the next best thing. There’s one with R2 projecting Leia of course, but you can also get versions featuring Kylo Ren, the trench run battle and Han Solo in carbonite. There’s also a display that can be purchased separately to illuminate the holograms. See more designs after the break…

I’ve seen a lot of Star Wars bookends in my day, but I think I’ve just found my new favorites. Etsy seller MokuShop uses wood to create Star Wars bookends based on the Death Star and AT-ATs.

He also did a Deadpool versoin. You bet I put it in this post because, Deadpool. See more after the break…

falcon 9

These gorgeous pictures of the Millennium Falcon on the Pinewood Studios set for Episode VIII were snapped by Oblivion State. Apparently, the location was discovered by a group of urban explorers who had the good fortune to arrive when no filming was taking place—so they were able to examine the set unfettered.

If you’d like an up close look at the Falcon’s exterior and a glimpse of Ahch-To, check out some very pretty pictures below (I didn’t spot anything spoilery). [click to continue…]
