Millennium Falcon Violin Makes For A Vibrant Conversational Piece

If Han Solo plays violin, it will probably look like this Custom Millennium Falcon Violin. However, it will probably have strings on it which this sculpture here does not have. Then again, in a galaxy far, far away, they probably need no strings to make music because, sci-fi. Or perhaps, it is powered by miniature SRB42 sunlight engines, heavily modified, of course, which explains the blue LED glow it has at the bottom side of the lower bout. With the galaxy so massive, it is hard to imagine what kind of tech they have. This earthly creation by Etsy seller Richard Symon’s Art, on the other hand, is not loaded with mysterious galactic tech and therefore it will not create any harmonious notes even if you are Vanessa Mae of the galaxy far, far away because of the obvious lack of strings.

Holy mother of… it looks like fans of Japanese anime fantasy flick Spirited Away are in for a treat.

Forget about your boring playing cards, the Pipmen: World Playing Cards by Elephant Playing Cards you see here is the playing cards you want if you desire for something beyond a game of poker and black jack.

Veteran Photographer’s Photo Book Weighs As Much As A Small Person!

What you see here is a photo book of epic proportion, called Equation of Time, containing masterpieces of Australian landscape photographer Peter Lik. So, just how big is this photo book? Well, it measures an unprecedented 30.25 x 22.25 x 6.25 inches (roughly 76.8 x 56.5 x 15.9 centimeters) and weighs a very hefty 106 pounds (48 kilograms). Man, that’s like as heavy as a small frame person. I used to have this lady ex-colleague (a grown adult, of course) who weighed a mere 88 pounds (40 kilograms only! I kid you not. I Swear). So, I guess you could say this photo book is heavy than a person? Seriously, I simply can’t get over how enormous this book is. Really.

Multi-tool Goes Geeky With Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit

While we concede that Millennium Falcon is probably one of the most versatile spaceship in the Star Wars universe, it is by no means godly. Meaning, it suffers from malfunctions and breakdowns from time to time, and when that happens, you will want this pocket-size Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit with you. Nah. Who am I kidding, right? This is way too small to deal with the hunk of junk and besides, hydrospanner is apparently not a standard issue which, with an spacecraft like so, you will need. But that’s not to say it has no use at all. It certainly can be of a help in your everyday simple repair jobs, or any handyman chores your wife issues.
