This Awesome K-2SO Cosplay Has An iPad On Its Back For Video Feed

What you see here is another awesome K-2SO cosplay costume. Like the previous one we saw earlier this year, this one here is in fact a puppet and it is huge! Towering at an impressive 7-foot-2 (2.18 meters), just like the real-deal. It took Darren Moser, a technical analyst by day and a cosplay costume maker by night, some serious toiling, countless late nights, months of dedication and “north of $1,000 spent to get what it is today. I can’t say which is better, this or the other. They are both equally impressive and share the same principle: puppetry.

Late last month, Disney and LEGO unveiled a slew of LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets in celebration of Force Friday. Before we move on, we have to be clear that Force Friday is not the same as the fans-proclaimed May the Fourth.

The important thing is, fans will have more reasons to part with their hard-earned money – if the recently revealed enormous LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon haven’t already leave your piggy bank high and dry.

Mandalorian Edition NERF Blaster Is A Pricey Way Of Battling As Boba Fett

Now, this is something that should have been done for a long time, but I guess it is better late than never. What you got here is a NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster-inspired by the intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett, specifically, from the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II video game. Produced by U.S. video game chain, GameStop, this special edition NERF blaster comes draped in the colors of the infamous mercenary’s armor and with appropriate ‘worn’ effects that makes the otherwise run-of-the-mill NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster look strikingly different and if I may say so, a little more attractive. At least it is over the stock pinkish red and blue variety. Continue reading Mandalorian Edition NERF Blaster Is A Pricey Way Of Battling As Boba Fett

Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder Ride-on Toy Makes Kids Happy, Adult Envious

When I was a kid, Star Wars was a phenomena that has taken the world by storm. Everyone was nuts about this sci-fi movie franchise and its merchandise, naturally, flew off the shelves. I bet if the Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder Ride-on Toy by Radio Flyer was available, it will also fly off the shelves too and I also foresee myself begging my parents for one. Though I am 100 percent sure they won’t because of the asking price of $500. Ouch. These days, kids are blessed, even more so if they have rich parents. Clearly, mine wasn’t back then. I even had problem convincing my dad to buy me a pack of five Star Wars action figure. I did managed to secure one Stormtrooper tho.

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.
