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.

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. Continue reading Multicolored LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon Is Bold, Loud And Super Cool
How many times can you say your pen is also a toy? And nope. Twirling your pen does not count. So, I guess it is a no? However, in the case of the S.T. Dupont Star Wars X-Wing Rollerball Pen, the pen is indeed a toy, or if you will, a scale model. Interesting notion there. I wonder what struck S.T. Dupont’s designers to come up with this novel pen. Obviously, no person can write comfortably with a pen that has a form of a X-Wing Fighter. Me would think it will be impossible to hold. Continue reading S.T. Dupont Star Wars X-Wing Rollerball Pen Is A Pen That Is Also A Pricey Toy
Leather is a material that is synonymous with luxury and obviously, it wouldn’t be a material of choice for armor that goes on, say, a Stormtrooper or an AT-AT. However, that does not stop artist Gabriel Dishaw’s imagination from running wild. Gabriel has created a series of Star Wars busts and sculptures that features leather as the main material as opposed to the norm of metals, plastics and woods. And he did not just use any leather; he uses old, discarded Louis Vuitton small leather goods like purses and bags that would otherwise be part of the landfill. Continue reading Star Wars Sculptures Made From Recycled LV Bags Are Vuitton-tastic!
Now, we all know TIE, which basically acronym for Twin Ion Engines, from everyone’s favorite sci-fi movie franchise won’t happen any time in our lifetime, but with a little help from some real-world hobby-grade electric motors and props, YouTuber Peter Sripol, has gotten a replica of Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer to fly, beautifully, right here on Earth. I am an old school person which makes me less acceptable to newer TIE iterations, but still, to see Kylo’s evil TIE take flight in our own world was quite a sight to behold. Unlike the official Star Wars R/C toys, Sripol ditches the notion of a quad rotor drone setup; instead, he went on the good’ol propellers-driven setup. Continue reading A DIY Kylo Ren TIE Silencer Takes Flight Here On Earth And It Is Beautiful!

Ah… now we are beginning to see the big picture why OnePlus 5T was announced with just one color options, Midnight Black. It was probably a marketing stunt that will allow the handset maker to turn out ‘limited edition’ color for other markets. Slowly but surely, it has announced a limited Lava Red version exclusively for China market and now, at the Comic Con India, it has announced a white edition that’s Star Wars branded. This limited Star Wars edition is no doubt a celebratory device for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie. Continue reading OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition Is Likely Why There’s Only One Color For 5T
First, it was the AT-AT from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and now, a Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter – life-size, no less. Yes. We are talking about our favorite garage inventor, madcap Colin Furze and yes, he built a crazy awesome full-size TIE Fighter which a person (or a few kids) can enter. It doesn’t fly though, obviously, but still cool, nonetheless. Like last year, Furze has teamed up with eBay for this project. However, there’s something special this year. James Burton of XRobots was also involved and for his part, the go-to guy for all-thing robotics have built incredible, remote control evil droid BB-9E to go with Colin’s Kylo Ren TIE Fighter. Continue reading Furze & Burton Built A Full-Size Kylo TIE Fighter And A Rolling BB-9E Droid
The Powell family and his neighborhood in Lafayette, California must be a super fan of Star Wars as judge by the giant Millennium Falcon replica looming over their roof. The 29-foot (8.4 meters) long, 700 pounds (318 kilograms) Millennium Falcon is not of space age material, obviously, but mainly of wooden frame and PVC piping, and interestingly, wrapped in a rather surprising material: a military-surplus parachute. The result is impressive enough to warrant the appearance of Han Solo, Princess Leia and the gang, well, not the real actors, but a printed version of the entourage which was thoughtfully placed in the cockpit. It is a fun touch to an awesome build. Continue reading DIY 29-foot Millennium Falcon Roof Decoration Is The Best Way To Welcome Star Wars:The Last Jedi
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.
