It was just a matter of time before Oliver C added X-Wing drone to join the rest of a Star Wars fleet that includes a Millennium Falcon, TIE Interceptor and Star Destroyer. Now we just need him to film a video with all four of his builds in the sky at once.

See the X-Wing in action after the break.

What if Pixar’s Cars was set in the Star Wars universe? Big Bee Studios answers that question with X-Wings. You guys, Vader’s TIE fighter sings!

x-wing rocker 1

It’s never too early to let your child pilot a spaceship. That’s especially true if said spaceship only rocks back and forth and can’t actually launch into a dogfight. This Star Wars X-wing rocker by Steve’s Wooden Toys fits the safety bill, and it’s quite the sight. It’s handcrafted from pine, rimu, and macrocarpa woods and features a removable R2-D2 so your kid can take him everywhere.

It was available for sale as of October to New Zealand residents. If you could get the X-wing rocker and make this AT-AT one, you’d have the coolest toys this side of Tatooine.

Check out more photos of the beautiful rocker after the break.

It’s about fracking time.

Two of the best Star War games ever, X-Wing and TIE Fighter, are finally being re-released. They’re currently available on Good Old Games for $10 each. When you download one of the games, you get the special edition (little better resolutions and improved sound, along with the respective expansions) and it’s all set to work on a modern PC.

x-wing lamp 1

What if X-wings were like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? This glowing X-wing fighter could guide the Rogue Squadron through any foggy night. Or, it could just light up a room since it’s a light installation. Behance user Benjamin Rice worked on this gigantic fixture for an event in London that’s all about urban bicycling. To that end, they made the lamp from Old Raleigh Grifter bicycles. It looks like it’s ready to take on the Death Star.

star wars track set 1

X-Wings are among the coolest ships in the Star Wars galaxy as far as I’m concerned. They’re not the Millennium Falcon, but they can hold their own. This was evidenced during the Death Star Trench Run in A New Hope. Sure, more than a few X-Wings went down because of TIE fighters, but at the end of the day, the Rebels won. You can re-create the epic battle of Yavin with this racetrack set. It has Luke’s X-Wing and Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced fighter. The ships are slightly wider than the track, so the victor will be the one that catches up first. All you need is a Death Star to explode in the background when the X-Wing wins!

See a shot of the full track after the break.

Why use a boring pipe when you can have one that looks like an X-Wing complete with R2-D2? This one’s sure to have you seeing visions of epic space battles in no time.

The Rebellion would have been so much prettier if all the X-Wings had been pink like this one. This model was designed by artist Guillaume Renou for an art exhibit in France that celebrates nature. Not sure how a bright pink X-Wing has anything to do with nature, but it is hanging with some lovely trees.

Since there’s an AT-AT bed for those with Imperial sympathies, it only makes sense that there’s an X-Wing version for rebel kids. This X-Wing is technically like the canopy of the bed which actually sits beneath the body of the ship. It’s tricked out too, with x-foils that open and close and a cockpit where you can sit and watch DVDs on the nose-mounted screen.
