Fancy Staying In The Galaxy Far, Far Away? Well, Soon Will Be Able To!

Not only does Disney wants fans of Marvel to totally immerse in the superhero world even when they aren’t at the company’s parks, but it also wants Star Wars fans to do the same. Yup. That’s right. There’s going to be a Star Wars-inspired hotel coming your way too. So, brace yourselves Star Wars fanatics. Your dream of living the life in the galaxy far, far away is going to be realized in near future, right here on Earth. The idea of a Star Wars-inspired hotel is to take the Star Wars experience beyond parks, to the extend of blurring the line between reality and fiction.

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.

How To Fold An Origami Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter. Yes! It’s Possible!

Believe it or not, it is possible to fold a Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter out of a single piece of square paper. I know right.

It seems like nothing is quite impossible with a sheet of paper when in the hands of everyday geniuses like origami enthusiast Joe who also run a YouTube channel aptly called How To Origami. Joe posted a video with detailed instruction on how to fold an origami em>Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter to go with a detailed written instruction on Instructables.

Custom Darth Vader Armchair Lets You Chill Like The Sith Lord

The last we heard, being on the dark side was never relaxing, but in the event you do find the time to chill amidst all the chaos and hopeless Stormtrooper shootings, well, then here’s the throne you may want to relax on. Created by Etsy seller DSDStudio, The Dark Side Armchair, as it is called, is designed in the likeness of the Sith Lord’s helmet. However, it does not look like it was Darth Vader’s helmet from the front where you are supposed to rest your butt on, but from the back, you will see the full glory of the iconic black helmet that made heavy breathing so cool. Continue reading Custom Darth Vader Armchair Lets You Chill Like The Sith Lord

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!
