Now, lets not pretend that movies are be-all end-all for movie studios. With some movies and even video games, they opens an opportunity for studios to sell you boatloads of merchandises that will make you rethink of your house choice. This couldn’t be more true for Disney-owned Star Wars franchise. Call it an exploits or whatever, Lucasfilm and Disney announced, last week, this year’s Star Wars product launch day, dubbed Triple Force Friday. Continue reading Oct 4th Earmarked As Triple Force Friday For Star Wars Product Launches
Coming up next: A New Hope for lack-of-exercise youth. In a bizarre move, the French Fencing Federation has recognized Lightsaber Dueling as a Competitive Sport. The goal was to make the sport more appealing to the younger generation because, youth of today is deemed not healthy since they say away from sports and hence, the lack of exercise which leads to health issue. So by riding on pop culture, such as Star Wars in this case, the French Fencing Federation hope to entice youth in moving their asses, instead gluing to the couch and playing video games. Continue reading Lightsaber Dueling Is Now Recognized As A Competitive Sport

South Korean LEGO Certified Professional Wani Kim, who has a special passion for diorama, has recreated the iconic Death Star Trench Run scene from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977, 20th Century Fox) with his (or was it her? Not sure) team, Olive Seon. And let me tell you this: I can’t stop myself from ogling at it. Man, this is perhaps one of the most impressive Star Wars-related MOC we have seen thus far.

Am I the only who feels that any Star Wars movies after the first trilogy will never be as epic? Let me be clear that Disney has nothing to do with the sub-epic standards. Anyways, we are not here to discuss on the original trilogy. We are here because of this: Star Wars Galactic Empire DSA Keycap Set. This is an officially licensed item, by the way, and it is absolutely sick. Continue reading This Keycap Set Replaces English With Star Wars Aurebesh Language
What you see here is a Hulkbuster x R2-D2 Mash-up Action Figure that has been getting some quite a bit of attention on the Internet. As you can see. Artoo here all pumped and set to smash. Those Imperial hoodlums wouldn’t stand a chance if R2-D2 was looking like he has gone through an unimaginable number of intense gym sessions. Or was he on Android-steroid? Whatever it is, I sense the rage in him is very strong. He could squash anything that comes his way. Continue reading Hulkbuster x R2-D2 Mash-up Action Figure Is Pure Genius!
Who would have thought the Empire’s AT-AT could be so cool as a desk tidy? We never knew AT-AT’s wide and varied applications – even when it has fallen, it turned out to be a super dope tape dispenser too. The Star Wars AT-AT Tape Dispenser is not articulated, though. It is made of resin and serve as a beautiful desk sculpture of sort, as well as a grim reminder that this imposing walker had a very deadly achilles’ heel, which incidentally is at its heel/lower limbs section. Continue reading Who Would Have Thought A Fallen AT-AT Makes For A Cool Tape Dispenser?
Most Halloween costumes are based on creatures, personalities, and maybe robots, but we never heard or seen any kid dressing up as a vehicle, let alone a spaceship, for trick-or-treat. Well, that’s until now. Andrew Guy is a loving father who did just that, i.e. he made a vehicle costume. Guy built an Imperial Star Destroyer costume over a bicycle for his son Aidan. As you can see, while it may not be practical, this ‘costume’ is pretty damn impressive with the lights and all. Continue reading Star Destroyer Halloween Costume Is Something I Never Thought Possible
Movies don’t show everything. While motion pictures tell some story, they never detail everything like for example, whether super villains eat, or do they bathe or poop, and they certainly won’t give you a hint of what it took to build the Batcave or Hogwarts castle, and how much real world money they would cost – if they were to be built in this non-fictional world.
