The team over at Super-Fan Builds created a Han Solo in Carbonite coffee table for a very special superfan—501st Legion member Ray Choi.

The coffee table looks great and even has panels that light up, but the fact that it’s a coffin is a little bit creepy. It still opens and is even lined with Star Wars fabric.

This looks a lot like what that one really mean and crazy kid did in Toy Story. Yamaguchi Katuhisa took an R2-D2 figure and mashed him up with other characters. Now, R2-D2’s rage has been unleashed.

star wars mural

This crazy cool mural is the work of artist Robert Burden who created it as a tribute to the classic Kenner toys. The images represent both action figures and vehicles from the vintage toy collection (click to enlarge).

It took him 2,000 hours and 18 months to create the 15′ x 8′ mural as an oil painting. There are a few symbolic images that are a nod to the influences that helped create Star Wars (like Yul Brynner in The Magnificent Seven) as well as some newer toys, but it’s mostly old-school.

You’ll be able to see it live at Star Wars Celebration next month and even pick up a 36″ x 24″ print from Burden’s online store. If you’ve got deep pockets and a lot of wall space, then buy the original for $200,000.

If you’ve ever left your spaceship in a sunbaked parking lot, you know that the cockpit can get unbearably hot. Not to worry! Back on Earth, we use these high-tech “sunshades” to protect the dashboards of our cars from being roasted by the sun.

Think Geek has a few different Star Wars-themed sunshades to choose from, including a Boba Fett sunshade (check out Solo’s reflection in Fett’s helmet!) and a Battle of Hoth sunshade, which you can check out after the break.

star-wars-hoth-mansion

I don’t care how many bathrooms this place has, this is one of the best Star Wars themed bedrooms ever. Set in Hoth, this deluxe room comes complete with a snow speeder bed and a probe droid to watch over you while you sleep. Don’t even think about trying to record a message on your R2 unit… you rebel scum.

If you absolutely need to have this room in your life, the mansion is currently listed at $14.9 million. What a bargain right?

But that’s not all. See what other goodies the house has after the break…

We’ve seen an RC Millennium Falcon, a TIE Interceptor and even a Speeder Bike recently, so the inclusion of an Imperial Star Destroyer version was inevitable.

It’s a great build, but watching it chase after the Falcon along with a few special effect lasers in the third video is amazing.

Paul Johnson’s TIE Fighter is a short animated film that looks at the events of a Star Wars space battle through the eyes of the Empire. The style and music are heavily reminiscent of anime from the ’80s, and all of the dog-fighting action is truly top-notch. It’s really a must-watch.

star wars aftermath edit

Lucasfilm and Disney have announcedthe newest book in their Journey To The Force Awakens. Aftermath will be written by acclaimed writer and lifelong Star Wars fan Chuck Wendig.

The first book in a trilogy (how fitting), Aftermath will start to bridge the gap between in the Star Wars timeline between the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi and the events in The Force Awakens. From the synopsis:

The second Death Star is destroyed. The Emperor and his powerful enforcer, Darth Vader, are rumored to be dead. The Galactic Empire is in chaos.

Across the galaxy, some systems celebrate, while in others Imperial factions tighten their grip. Optimism and fear reign side by side.

And while the Rebel Alliance engages the fractured forces of the Empire, a lone Rebel scout uncovers a secret Imperial meeting…

Wendig’s statement via StarWars.com goes a long way to prove that this story is in good hands:

“My earliest — and still one of my best — movie-going experiences as a kid was being a four-year-old watching The Empire Strikes Back at a drive-in theater with my sister…My jaw dropped and I don’t think I’ve found it, yet. Those movies opened up a world for me, and my love of storytelling comes from them and from the galaxy of smaller, connected stories, too — from the toys to the games to the books. In fact, one of the first novels I ever read was the novelization of A New Hope. I have a son who will in a few short months be my age when I saw Empire, so to be involved with the Star Wars universe just as the new film is coming out — it feels like not only something akin to kismet, but a great and powerful privilege.”

Aftermath will be out in September of this year and is currently available for pre-order.

Papercraft is a hobby that requires a lot of patience and skill, and artist Bernard Szukiel has plenty of both. It took him four whole years to build this Millennium Falcon. It is a 38″ replica of Han Solo’s ship and includes the smallest of details. There are even instrument panels that light up through a network of LEDs running through the ship’s interior.
