    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 →

    These are a couple videos of a homemade R/C Millennium Falcon quadrocopter. It is most impressive, especially the LED light effects in the back -- that was a nice touch. Plus if you squint your eyes and shake your head a little while you watch the videos you can almost convin... / Continue →

    This is the 1977 Kenner Star Wars Millennium Falcon toy that was stuffed with the guts of a Technics SL-1200 turntable by Marco Garza. It makes the perfect record player for listening to John Williams' original Star Wars score. Or Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon. It's a r... / Continue →

    Wow, two gingerbread posts in a row, it must be the holidays or something! (Is it the holidays?) This is the gingerbread USS Enterprise built and on display at the Blackmarket Bakery in Costa Mesa, California. They did a good job. But you know what my least favorite thing ab... / Continue →

    This is the 59" X 79" Millennium Falcon Area Rug (available on Amazon for $80, ThinkGeek for $100, and probably other places for I don't know how much). It's a rug that looks like the Millennium Falcon. Now I want you to close your eyes and imagine this thing in front of a ro... / Continue →

    This is a series of three alternate fan-made posters for Star War Episode VII designed by DeviantARTist AndrewSS7. Will the actual movie posters look this good? I doubt it. Of course, I've been wrong before. Like when I camped out to see all three prequels. Keep going for ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Galactic Empire forces taking over the Frankfurt Airport in Germany. No word if Germany forged an alliance with the Empire or if the airport was taken by force. I suspect the worse. "Which is?" Germany has always been a secret part of the Galactic Empire.... / Continue →

    This is a short spec ad created by Bruce Branit for his portfolio. It features a wife who gives her husband the Millennium Falcon for their anniversary. It also has a bunch of Star Wars Easter eggs in it. Can you spot them all? I spotted zero. Of course I had my eyes close... / Continue →

    This is the space shuttle replica that a 60-something Chinese farmer built on the roof of his home in the Guangdong province. Obviously, all the neighbors are jealous. And can you blame them? Who doesn't want a spaceship replica on top of their house? Nobody I want to be fr... / Continue →

    This is the Glow-in-the-Dark White Rockets Flannel Bedding available from Garnet Hill. You can get pillow cases, bed sets and comforter covers with the design. The prices seem reasonable. The only thing unreasonable is they don't make them in a king or I would have already o... / Continue →
