How much are you a fan of Star Wars? The original trilogy, not the newer episodes. You know what. Don’t answer that because, most likely you won’t be as huge as a fan than Ben, Ferroh12 and Brick_Phil. How so? Because these three person have gotten together to create what could be the most detailed Star Wars Battle of Hoth scene, specifically the part where the Imperial forces are about to breach the Hoth Echo Base, using nothing but LEGO bricks. We do not know how long it took these three LEGO/Star Wars super fans to build this, but I guess a piece count of over 200,000 should a hint that it had took weeks, if not months to complete. Continue reading This 200K+ LEGO Bricks Re-creation Of Battle Of Hoth Totally Blew My Mind
What you see here is a Millennium Falcon and nope, it wasn’t parked among the wastes of the desert planet Jakku. Neither was it in Rub al Khali desert near Abu Dhabi, or Hollywood backlot. No, wait. It was actually on a backlot, just not in stateside. In fact, it was uncovered to be parked on the backlot of Longcross Studios outside of London, just off the M3 freeway. I said ‘was’ because, it was spotted way back in June and as you know, Google Earth only updates the satellite images between 1 and 3 years, and so, for all we know, it may have already moved between now and then. Continue reading Did Disney Did A Bad Job In Trying To Hide The Millennium Falcon?
Death Star is arguably one of the most iconic, if not the most iconic, object from the original Star Wars trilogy and naturally, it gets turn into a variety of merchandise. The Star Wars Death Star Dome Tent you see here may not be as convincing the Bluetooth speaker incarnation, it is, however, true to its original use, as a space station. Granted, it is not moon-sized, but it can still accommodate three grown-men comfortable and more forgiving than the steel-made variety because it is obviously not made of steel or of whatever galactic ferrous materials, and thus, it is easy to bring along if you want to camp beneath the giant-ass trees and among the bushes on Endor. Continue reading Star Wars Death Star Dome Tent: That’s No Moon! It’s A Tent-station!
There are a lot of Star Wars merchandises featuring Death Star, the iconic aptly named evil lair of the Imperial. I have no opinion on those merchandises, but the Star Wars Death Star Levitating Bluetooth Speaker you see here is perhaps the most fitting because, levitation. As the product name suggests, it is a Bluetooth speaker in the likeness of the moon-size space station with planet obliterating capability and it levitates like a space station should. Seriously, what more could one ask beside a big ass laser that can take out other planets? Nope. Nothing. Continue reading Levitating Death Star Speaker Floats Like The ‘Actual’ Thing
During the recent Model-Hobby-Spiel Fair in Leipzig, Germany, something caught our attention and it wasn’t the regular R/C models. Instead, it was a bunch of futuristic racers, or The Phantom Menace‘s Podracers to be precise. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace may have failed us, but the image of Anakin Skywalker’s Podrace had many enthralled. It was possibly the best scenes in the entire show. It had all the elements many geeks love: adrenalin pumping racing, futuristic flying racers, and shrewd aliens. Lets not forget about that. All thanks to today’s advancement in micro motors, Podracers are now a reality. Or at least, it is as far as R/C is concerned. Continue reading R/C Podracers Are Real, Can Someone Make Life-size Versions Already?
The sight of nuclear shelters is actually pretty sad. However, they were necessary evils during the height of the Cold War era and are found in and around Central and Eastern Europe. Clearly, someone is not fond of these relics of the Cold War history and has took it upon himself (or herself, we don’t know) to turn the air vent of one of the two nuclear shelter in Folimanka Park in the Czech Republic’s capital, Prague, into the iconic and adorable droid from the Star Wars franchise, R2-D2. The result is pretty surprisingly awesome. Continue reading Cold War Era Nuclear Shelter Vent Turned Into R2-D2 By Mysterious Artist
Gone were the days where “toy-grade” action figures are basically shitty quality pieces that kids can trash them around however they like. With the Star Wars Black Series, “toy-grade” action figures are now on par with collectibles that cost hundreds of dollars. But of course, the Black Series is marketed at a tad higher price point. Despite so, they are still a lot more affordable compared to those “collectors-grade” items turned out by specialists like Hot Toys. It is now even more affordable, or at it is in the case of the Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder (Jakku) and Figure, because Amazon is taking over 30% of it. The Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder (Jakku) and Figure previously cost $59.99, but now, for an unknown period of time, it cost just $40.93. Continue reading Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder and Figure Is Now 30% Less On Amazon
Halloween decorations have gone from the creepy, ghouls-themed to wait, what? Star Wars-themed? Yup. That is exactly what one man did on the front lawn of his property. Nick Meyer, an elevator mechanic, has built a towering 19-foot tall AT-AT replica modeled after a toy he bought. The family has the tradition of creating something unique for each year’s Halloween and while Nick may not be a huge Star Wars, he created the AT-AT anyways. With the help of a carpenter friend, the project commence in April and it is built from a combination of materials, including plywood, foam, and plastic barrels. The result pretty impressive, just for the sake of the sheer size which, not surprisingly, have attracted a lot of attention in his neighborhood. Continue reading Ohio Man Built A 19-Foot AT-AT Replica On His Front Lawn For Halloween
While many car designers work on outrageous car designs they couldn’t present to the board in the real-world, one Canadian automotive designer, Jason Battersby, who makes a living designing automobile for Audi, choose to take on the sci-fi route during his free time. Instead of turning out concepts that stays on the ground, Jason has came up with a brilliant iteration of Darth Vader’s secret advanced TIE Fighter which he calls TIE-X. Jason’s vision is a fictional in two folds: first, it is a spacecraft and second, it is a spacecraft to the theme of a hugely successful sci-fi franchise, Star Wars. I am not sure the original creator of Star Wars, George Lucas’ opinion on this, but for me, I have mixed feelings about this radical even by sci-fi standard design. Continue reading Concept TIE-X Fighter Makes TIE Fighter Looks Truly Very Alien-ish
You know the height of the Star Wars hype has reached its peak when Darth Vader and Stormtrooper arrives to robot vacuum cleaner. Samsung has announced limited edition Star Wars of the company’s POWERbot Robot Vacuum to celebrate the upcoming eighth Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. What makes this movie theme POWERbot special is, it was designed in collaboration with Star Wars “superfans” as opposed to the usual suspect of Disney and/or Lucas Films.
