Illustrator Imagines Iconic Star Wars Characters As Insects

Imagine the world of Star Wars being played out by insects (think: Antz). Can you visualized how it would be? Well, you don’t have too. Just take a look at Richard Wilkinson’s works. The illustrator has created a series of realistic insects decorated to look like iconic characters from the Star Wars Universe. Some of them are highly recognizable, like the fly that is actually Darth Vader, while some took a while to register (Wasp Stormtrooper and bug Sand Crawler for examples).

I Wish I Could Bring This LEGO Millennium Falcon Pedicab Home!

You may have seen this “Millennium Falcon” on May the 4th, Star Wars Day, plying Bryant Park in NYC. If you have and had ridden it, I am green with envy. This LEGO Millennium Falcon Pedicab (AKA cycle rickshaw) is, as the name suggests, a pedicab spruced up with the image of young Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon created by LEGO Master Builders with LEGO elements. I wouldn’t say it is a ride-on toy because, it is obviously a tricycle. So, this ain’t no child’s play. Continue reading I Wish I Could Bring This LEGO Millennium Falcon Pedicab Home!

Solo: A Star Wars Story LEGO Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Available Now

The LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon is one of the much loved set in the LEGO Star Wars collection (especially the ridiculously pricey UCS edition), but if the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story (Walt Disney Pictures, 2018) does indeed make much of dent in the box office, then perhaps, the star space vehicle of the flick may have a place in the LEGO Star Wars cult altar too. Just maybe. Whatever the case maybe, you will want to secure yourself a set (or several, if you have extremely deep pockets) just in case this thing becomes as big as its forebear.

Rideable Electric TIE Fighter Is Every Star Wars Fans Dream Come True

Furze and Burton may have built a full-size Kylo Ren TIE Fighter which a grown-ass man can get in and pretend to fly it. Allan Carver’s TIE Fighter may not fly. It may not even of life-size (it is not small either though; it is about 1/3rd scale), but one thing for sure is, it is totally mobile and it can also fit a grown-ass man inside, albeit with not much room to so much as to wiggle. Built with reference to a vintage Kenner toy, Carver’s electric TIE fighter is driven by electric wheelchair motors and features a foam body over a custom steel chassis. Continue reading Rideable Electric TIE Fighter Is Every Star Wars Fans Dream Come True

Hasbro Jabba’s Sail Barge Gets Funded Just When We Thought It Wouldn’t

Just last week, we expressed our skepticism if Hasbro’s first crowdfunding collectible, the Star Wars Vintage Collection Jabba Sail Barge, will get funded. Well, the good news for fans is, not only did it got the 5,000 backers it was seeking, but the campaign has concluded with 8,840 pre-orders! Holy cow! It has more than doubled its original number of backers in just 10 days. Congrats to all Star Wars fans who have backed the campaign. Here’s what to expect next: Continue reading Hasbro Jabba’s Sail Barge Gets Funded Just When We Thought It Wouldn’t

Crowdfunding Hasbro Jabba’s Sail Barge Gets A Paint Job And Some Extras

Remember the Hasbro Star Wars Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge introduced under Hasbro’s new crowdfunding-style initiative known as HasLab. Well, it looks like the community is not quite thrilled. So far, this 500 dollars collectible has gotten 3,500+ backers and it has just 10 days left to meet its targeted 5,000 backers to take it to production. However, it is deemed a good enough milestone for Hasbro to showcase this collectible in its painted form, or perhaps, the colors put on to an attempt to boost the allure.

Let You Pooch Into The Dark Side With This Darth Vader Dog Bowl

If you have already gotten your small canine or feline friend to the Dark Side with the Death Star Pet Cave, then it is only fitting that your furry four-legged pal gets to eat from the Star Wars Darth Vader Stainless Steel Dog Bowl. No, it is not of Darth Helmet, that would be blasphemous. You don’t eat from your boss’ head, do you? While it may not be the overused Sith Lord’s helmet, it is still highly recognizable as the supreme commander of the Imperial force – thanks to the foreboding Dark Side armor, featuring the iconic chest box buttons (but not lighted, unfortunately). Continue reading Let You Pooch Into The Dark Side With This Darth Vader Dog Bowl

Hasbro Is Selling Jabba’s Sail Barge Via A Kickstarter-like Pre-sale Campaign

Premium scale models of iconic movies like Star Wars is never a thing for mass production toy company like Hasbro, but in recent years, things have took a change for the better, starting with the Black series collectible figures. Granted, they don’t look anything like Hot Toys’, but it is great in bang-of-buck point-of-view. Now, Hasbro is taking this premium endeavor further with a new crowdfunding-style platform called HasLab where premium collectibles will be made with the support of fans. It works like any crowdfunding platform; fans back the product and if it meet the minimum number of backers within the listed deadline, Hasbro will produce the product. The major difference here with other crowdfunding site is, Hasbro won’t run away with your money. Continue reading Hasbro Is Selling Jabba’s Sail Barge Via A Kickstarter-like Pre-sale Campaign

Now Dear Kitty And Fido Can Also Rest Inside The Most Dangerous Space Station In The Galaxy

In movies, bad guys always get the cool stuff. In real life, pets seem to be getting all the cool stuff. Case-in-point: The Star Wars Death Star Pet Cave. OK. Perhaps, the “pets seem to be getting all the cool stuff” may not be applicable in this instance since we, humans, already have the Death Star Dome Tent to content with. Still, even with the tent, it is nothing like the Moon-sized, planets annihilating space station. So, yeah, pets do get some really cool stuff. It seems like the only responsibility of grown ups is to buy cool things for other people, or in this case, pets. Continue reading Now Dear Kitty And Fido Can Also Rest Inside The Most Dangerous Space Station In The Galaxy

Multicolored LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon Is Bold, Loud And Super Cool

Now we know how sought after the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon is. Apart from being an elusive set so many fans clamor, it also command a hefty price tag that, TBH, not everyone can or willing to shell out. Building your own is one way to get this iconic sci-fi cargo freighter that can do 12 parsecs, but the problem is, not everyone has 5,000 “movie accurate” grey bricks of assortment lying around. However, some may have 5,000 assortment of bricks of variety of colors lying around. That one someone was one imgur user called funkblast1.
