Check Out This Awesome K-2SO ‘Cosplay’ That Is Actually A Puppet

We all know how lovable and cool K-2SO is, but however much folks love this hero of Star Wars Rogue One, it is nearly impossible to cosplay as one, unless K-2SO put on some serious stones. I mean, just look at this hands and legs. Not only are his limbs unusually long, but they are super skinny too, and no normal humans is going to be convincing in a K-2SO costume. C-3PO, on the other hand, is easier, as it has average human-size limbs; all you have to do is act a little more robot-ish and act like you are afraid of every situations. Anyways, but the super thin limbs did not stop cosplayer HarteAttack Cosplay from whipping up a K-2SO costume. Continue reading Check Out This Awesome K-2SO ‘Cosplay’ That Is Actually A Puppet

Now, Here’s A Home Movie Theater That Most People Can Afford To Own

When we talked about home movie theater, movie theaters like the custom Dark Knight home theater and the one that’s Pirates of the Caribbean-themed, costing millions of dollars, comes to mind. Well, the good news is, it is not necessary the case as proven by one Donovan AKA The Beardless Man. It is just a matter of thinking out-of-the-box, really. As far as Donovan is concerned, the idea of movie theater is a tablet and the only question remains is, how to create a movie-themed ‘theater’ that the kids can watch their favorite movies whilst lying down, handsfree.

LEGO Star Wars Celebration Exclusive Detention Block Rescue Set. ‘Nuff Said!

I don’t know what else speaks louder than a self-explanatory post title that says what the item is all about. The LEGO Star Wars Celebration Exclusive Detention Block Rescue Set ($40) was unveiled last week, but unfortunately, one of the option for fans to secure this set has since expired. Our bad. I only noticed this from our source on April 4 and by the time we react to it, the lottery for you to have a shot in earning the chance to acquire the set at the Star Wars Celebration this week had lapsed on April 6. Again, our bad. I apologized for our incompetence. Continue reading LEGO Star Wars Celebration Exclusive Detention Block Rescue Set. ‘Nuff Said!

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

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

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. Ok, maybe ‘faithful’ was an understatement; he was more like absolutely obsessed with the way of the Jedi. 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. Continue reading This Is How You Sell An Action Figure: Use It To Make A Kick-ass Stop Motion

Millennium Falcon Micro USB Charging Cable: Charging Turns Cool

Any Star Wars geek will be shouting out “shut up and take my Galaxy credits” and it did be the only rational thing to say. Unfortunately, however you scream, you will not be able to own it, at least for now, cos’ the Star Wars Millennium Falcon Micro USB Charging Cable, as it is called, is out of stock. Terrible. Terrible. Terrible. At just $19.99 and being a Millennium Falcon that charges your Earthly smartphones with light-up thrusters and illuminating cord that animates to boots, why wouldn’t it be sold out? However, you can opt to be notified when it is available. Continue reading Millennium Falcon Micro USB Charging Cable: Charging Turns Cool

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? Question, question, question. I guess we will never know and it probably doesn’t matter, but to you, his loyal fan, you need to tell time in this real world, and what better way then to do it with a digital timepiece (digital for the sci-fi touch, I guess?) decorated with a design inspired by one of the galaxy’s most feared bounty hunters, Nixon The Unit Boba Fett – Limited Reissue Wrist Watch?
