    These are the Star Wars spaceships reimagined as giant cartoon monsters by artist Jake Parker (print available HERE). They kind of remind me of Rat Fink style monsters. Some people are so talented. And creative. I am not creative. Sometimes I like to pretend I'm the kind o... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration created by Youtuber Joe_Tutorials of how to fold your very own origami x-wing fighter plane out of a single sheet of paper (alternatively: step-by-step picture instructions HERE). The instructions were so easy even I could follow them. As a matte... / Continue →

    These are the crocheted X-wing fighter blankets designed and crafted by Michelle of MJ's Off The Hook Designs. You actually put your legs into the body of the X-wing, and you can keep your hands warm in the engine pockets. Pretty clever! If you're good with a needle you can ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of SpaceX's latest Falcon 9 rocket landing. This time they tried landing the rocket on a barge, and it falls over and blows up (previously: successfully landing a Falcon 9 on dry land after satellite deployment). Per Elon Musk, who's a good sport about ... / Continue →

    This is the $4,000 Millennium Falcon cockpit bed available from Pottery Barn. I like Pottery Barn. I like walking around there with my mom, we have a great time. The bed, which is made from quality hardwood (not particleboard), is handpainted and finished, but sadly only ava... / Continue →

    This is a visual comparison created by Redditor movielover278 of the largest known class of Star Destroyer compared to the size of Manhattan. For reference, Manhattan is 13.4 miles (21.6 km) long and 2.3 miles (3.7 km) at its widest. So that is a pretty big ship. You think i... / Continue →

    These are several Photoshop jobs created by French artist Nicolas Amiard imagining different Star Wars ships crashed in famous world cities. He did a great job, but I'm sadly convinced it's only a matter of time before somebody starts bitching about how he got the scale all wr... / Continue →

    These are the teensy $50 Bandai Namco R/C Star Wars spaceships that will be available this August. The blades only measure about 4-inches in length, and a 3-minute charge gets you about 4-minutes of flight time with a range of about 16-feet. That is not very impressive. Stil... / Continue →

    This is the Incom T-70 X-Wing quadrocopter built by Star Wars fan and French quadrocopter hobbyist Olivier C (previously: a TIE Interceptor and Millennium Falcon). Does everybody already own a quadrocopter by now? I still don't have one. Do you have one? Can I play with you... / Continue →

    The CEO of Chinese software firm NetDragon is such a big Star Trek fan he had the company's $160-million headquarters built to look like the Star Trek Voyager. This is a Google satellite image of that building, and there's a video tour after the jump. When I'm the CEO of my o... / Continue →

    This is the 10,000 piece "accurate to minifig scale" LEGO Millennium Falcon cross-section created by LEGO builders Titans Creations. It looks most impressive. I actually tried to build the 1,200 piece Millennium Falcon set that LEGO released a couple years ago, but you know w... / Continue →

    To celebrate Star Wars Day (I love celebrating by breaking things) this is a video from WIRED of an $800, 16-hour build LEGO Star Destroyer nose-diving into the ground at 1,000 frames per second. I like how they point out all the Star Wars minifigs that go flying, I feel like ... / Continue →

    This is the Millennium Falcon cockpit bed built by a father for his son. Apparently they're going to make the whole room Star Wars themed. When I was growing up my room didn't have a theme. Unless that theme was unpacked boxes and a mattress on the floor, in which case we na... / Continue →

    This is a video of Star Wars Imperial forces invading Los Angeles and doing battle near various landmarks. Weird I never heard about it, because I live in LA and I feel like spaceships and AT-ATs blowing shit up everywhere is something you would hear about and/or see for yours... / Continue →

    From Youtuber Olivier C (who also brought us the R/C Millennium Falcon and TIE Interceptor quadrocopters -- but NOT the speeder bike one) comes this Star Destroyer quadrocopter. It looks legit. Want to place bets on what Star Wars ship he'll make next? $50 says he makes Boba... / Continue →

    This is 'TIE Fighter', a beautiful seven minute Star Wars short drawn and animated entirely by Youtuber OtaKing77077 in the style of 1980's anime. It is most impressive. You know, I tried making a flip-book once and abandoned the project by the third page. My mom still hung ... / Continue →

    Because there will come a time when every product is available with a Star Trek theme, this is the Star Trek USS Enterprise Sushi Set available from ThinkGeek ($35). The top comes off the Enterprise's circular hull to hold soy sauce, and the blue warp trails are actually chops... / Continue →

    That is not how you catch a frisbee, that is how you catch a baby. This is the $25 Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc (not actually a Frisbee, Frisbee is a name brand) available from ThinkGeek. It's a flying disk with a freely rotating saucer section, and a foam body tha... / Continue →

    This is a video of the impressive TIE Interceptor quadrocopter built by Youtuber Olivier C, who also made that Millennium Falcon quadrocopter. Clearly this guy has a thing for Star Wars and quadrocopters. So, if you were ever looking for somebody to make you a custom Star War... / Continue →
