Custom Star Wars AT-AT Mailbox Deserves The Title Of Best Mailbox Ever

Not everyone can be like Colin Furze who has the technical skill and financial backing to build an 18-foot tall ‘playable’ AT-AT in their backyard, but I am sure most of us are well capable of cobbling up a smaller scale version suitable for your mails and the occasional squirrel/chipmunk raids. Just to clarify, by mails, we are referring to the good’ol snail mails which still refused to die in this digital age. I know. This Custom Star Wars Imperial AT-AT Mailbox is, aesthetically, not perfect, but you know what? That’s actually the beauty of this mailbox.

Scout. Troop at Coin Rides Game Vinyl: Sexist Or Cheeky? You Be The Judge.

Fools’ latest vinyl figure may not go down well with a lot of people, let alone hardcore Star Wars fans, but me? I am totally digging it. Not because it is a slender and curvy female figure in cropped top flaunting an anime standard of ‘perfect body’ (I promised, it isn’t), but because it is a playful take of Star Wars’s Imperial Scout Trooper, who in this case is an obvious female, riding a coin-operated speeder bike. To some extend, you can say that this is a sexist piece, like so many Japanese anime figurines are, but you can also take it with an open mind and think of it as a cheeky tribute to the character it took after – like it has always been with Fools’ other masterpieces. Continue reading Scout. Troop at Coin Rides Game Vinyl: Sexist Or Cheeky? You Be The Judge.

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.

This Is How You Sell An Action Figure: Use It To Make A Kick-ass Stop Motion

Hong Kong actor Donnie Yen has been kicking ass in the Chinese cinema scene for quite sometime now, but it is only now that he got his big break in the western silver screen. Yes, we are talking about Rogue One: A Star War Story which the Guangzhou-born actor, best known for his role as the legendary martial artist Ip Man, starred as a faithful Jedi follower Chirrut Îmwe.

Anyways, if you are fan, Hong Kong-based toy maker Hot Toys may have something just for you: a Star Wars Rogue One Chirrut Îmwe 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure.

Nixon The Unit Boba Fett Limited Reissue Watch Lacks “Battle Scars”

Have you ever seen the infamous bounty hunter, Boba Fett, flick his wrist to check the time? No. He probably don’t even have a watch. Then how the hell did he keep to his schedule?

Continue reading Nixon The Unit Boba Fett Limited Reissue Watch Lacks “Battle Scars”

Watch Star Wars Speeder Bike Chase Played Out In Real Life With Jetovators

Guess what? The Speeder Bike featured in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi exists! Yes! Here on Earth! Ok, we all know that a Speeder Bike is scientifically not possible with today’s technology, but thanks to the water-powered Jetovator we saw four years ago, it is sort of a reality now and thus, allowing Devin Supertramp and his team to recreate the Speeder Bike chase scene fairly accurately – except that, this entire ‘remake’, or real-life Speeder Bike battle, have to be played out over a river because, Jetovator. Hmmm, I don’t recall Endor has any river at all. Continue reading Watch Star Wars Speeder Bike Chase Played Out In Real Life With Jetovators

Only In Japan, You Will Get To Buy Star Wars-themed Android Phones

Star Wars movies are set in, presumably, a civilization far more advanced than mankind. However, the funny thing was, there were no smartphone or anything vaguely resembles one that could let them communicate at will like we do. Lucky for us, we do have this technology available to us and hence, we, specifically folks residing in Japan, will get to enjoy these Sharp Star Wars-themed smartphones offered by Japanese telecommunication giant, Softbank. There’s no question about these phones are a bid to ride the wave of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hype and they should work pretty well in the Land of the Rising Sun as, apparently, Star Wars is pretty huge over there.
