Star Wars Celebration is about, well, celebration and not shocks, but during the celebration, something popped up that indeed raised some eyebrows. And that something was this: a vintage Star Wars Boba Fett action figure made by Kenner. It hailed from the year 1979 and it is one of three extremely rare action figures of the infamous bounty hunter with a firing rocket pack and the person who owns it was peddling it for an eye-watering $365,000. Holy mother of… Continue reading Here’s Why This Vintage Star Wars Toy Is Selling For $365,000

Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet Kettle: Force Not Included

Obviously, the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader, doesn’t drink tea. In fact, he does not even ingest solid food. His life is dependant on the life-support armor that feeds his body with nutrient fluids. And so, clearly, this man needs no kettle, even it is one that is designed to look like his iconic helmet, complete with his Lightsaber as the handle. However, a mega fan who does drink tea or boils water should have the Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet Kettle. Continue reading Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet Kettle: Force Not Included

It Is Hard To Believe This Star Wars Imperial Probe Droid Is A LEGO MOC

This post won’t be long. It is just a post of me exclaiming “holy shit!” And why the “holy shit,” you ask? Because of this: a LEGO MOC Imperial Probe Droid straight out of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980, Lucasfilm). Created by Lino Martins, this replica of the Arakyd Industries Viper probe droid does not even look like it was made out of LEGO elements.

Well, it happened again, but this time, the upsized iconic astromech from everyone’s (or most people’s) favorite sci-fi franchise was found in Germany and it was most certainly legal, unlike the aforementioned. What you see before you is the Zweibrücken Observatory of the Natural Science Association – transformed to look like R2 with clever paint works.

It Is Sad That This LEGO Ideas Acclamator-class Assault Ship Did Not Make It As An Official Set

It has gotten the 10,000 support it needed, but sadly, this freaking awesome LEGO MOC Acclamator-class Assault Ship didn’t get the nods from the LEGO Review Board (it loses out to Treehouse and Flintstones). Perhaps, it wasn’t mainstream enough like its successor, the Imperial Star Destroyer? For the uninitiated, the Acclamator-class Assault Ship was an assault-class capital ship of the Galactic Republic and it predates the Star Destroyer.
