Levitating Death Star Speaker Floats Like The ‘Actual’ Thing

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

Star Wars Stormtrooper Decanter And Shot Glass: Fitting Drinkware For Veteran Stormtroopers

If you were a Stormtrooper, every end of a battle calls for a celebration because you never die. Lets face it, the survival rate of a Stormtrooper is beyond horrendous and so, you ARE GOING to celebrate and will do so by downing your favorite Galaxy Far, Far Away spirit in your very own image: Stormtrooper Decanter and Shot Glass.

Death Star BBQ Is Not The Craziest BBQ, But It Is Certainly One Of The Coolest

Apart from the obvious toys and collectibles, characters and things from the Star Wars franchise can be turned into pretty cool everyday usable products, well, that’s if you haven’t had enough of them since a few months before the seventh instalment hit the big screen. We have seen how Darth Vader can be useful as a showerhead and R2-D2, a mobile fridge, and now, you can add BBQ to the growing list of merchandizes based on the galaxy far, far away. While a DIY R2 smoker looks pretty rad, you can’t deny that the Death Star could be a better candidate as a BBQ.

Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block May Have Taken Merchandising A Little Too Far

when it comes to movie merchandise, when is it considered ‘taking things a little too far’? a knife block, perhaps? such as this Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block? perhaps. there is hardly any association between kitchen knives and Star Wars, but that hasn’t stop the owner of Star Wars from putting the stamp of approval on the Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block, which could be the coolest thing ever for kitchen-dominant or home-making Star Wars fans, or it could be just yet another overpriced merchandise that looks pretty messy. blamed it on the different types of knives if you will, which in this case, includes a 335mm long Cook’s knife (the longest in the ‘arsenal’), a bread knife, a carving knife, an utility knife and a paring knife. unless you are serious home chef, you probably won’t be utilizing all of them and they would even look like a misplaced movie memorabilia – that’s if anyone can recognize it without looking at the box or even the Star Wars branding.

Star Wars Lightsaber BBQ Tongs

throughout the three original Star Wars flicks, we have never seen Lord Vader eats, perhaps he don’t, or perhaps he did? I am sure from time to time he would sneak out with the Emperor (remembering that he has no other friends other than his boss) to chew on some juicy grilled beef. no? that’s debatable, but if Vader did (not sure about on the onboard fire safety order though), then i bet the Star Wars Lightsaber BBQ Tongs will be the tongs of choice. no doubt about it.
