    These are four videos (A New Hope is two parts) detailing all the changes George 'I'll Do What I Want' Lucas made to the original Star Wars trilogy after they were already released. Most of the changes are pretty minor, like adding an alien in the background, and almost all ar... / Continue →

    This is the $60 R2-D2 Dome Purse available from ThinkGeek (among other places -- shop around!). It looks like R2-D2 and holds things. Not very big things, mind you. Will it be this fall's must-have fashion accessory? I doubt it. Will slap-bracelets and toe rings make a com... / Continue →

    This is a video of a rice paddy in Japan that was grown with a Star Wars theme by planting four different kinds of rice to display 'STAR WARS' and pictures of R2-D2, C-3PO and BB-8. I cannot even imagine the planning that went into this because one time I tried planting a stra... / Continue →

    This is a video of Darth Vader running around and Force-choking anyone and everyone at Comic-Con over the weekend. Obviously, some people are better at being pretend Force-choked than others. Me? I would have just stood there with a confused look on my face. Is this guy try... / Continue →

    Kevin Doyle's wife Eileen died in 2012 to pancreatic cancer. And this year Kevin walked over 600 miles to San Diego Comic-Con to honor her memory and raise money for Eileen's Little Angels, a non-profit he started to help raise the spirits of children battling cancer. Eileen ... / Continue →

    These are the $40 velvet Chewbacca leggings available from ThinkGeek (and possibly elsewhere but I'm not your personal shopper unless you let me ride in the cart in which case you've got yourself a deal but please don't push me too fast). The velvet gives them a little bit of ... / 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 →

    Because it must be hard being the kid from the Star Wars movie nobody likes, actor Jake Lloyd was arrested in South Carolina after leading police on a high-speed chase reaching up to 117MPH. For reference, that is about half as fast as you should run if a friend asks if you wa... / 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 a video of all six Star Wars movies playing on top of each other simultaneously because why take the time to watch six separate movies? Beats me, but you definitely shouldn't bother taking the time to watch the most recent three. The upcoming J.J. Abrams one though --... / Continue →

    This is the £10 (~$16) Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool available for pre-order from TheFowndry. It has eleven functions including screwdriver, earbuds cord wrap, bottle opener, wire stripper, five different wrenches, a ruler and a letter opener. So it's by no means the most vers... / Continue →

    This is the X-wing fighter coffee table built by Barry Shields (previously: the USS Enterprise coffee table he made). I wish I was good at woodcarving. I'm not though, and the last time I even tried sharpening a stick I poked myself in the eye. I did get to wear a cool eyepa... / Continue →

    This is the life-size R2-D2 mini-fridge developed by AQUA for release sometime next year (price TBA). The unit is rechargeable, remote controlled, and has a rotating head as well as light and sound effects, just like the real droid. For reference, this makes two Star Wars min... / Continue →

    This is the $150 officially licensed Han Solo frozen in carbonite mini fridge available from ThinkGeek (soon to be GameGeekThinkStop, who will buy back your previously used products for pennies on the dollar). It's weird this was actually a rejected Star Wars product considere... / Continue →

    This is a game of match the custom Star Wars license plate with the vehicle it belongs to. Can you match them all? I matched zero. H4N S0L0? What the hell kind of clue is that? "It's Han Solo spelled with a 4 and 0's." Well I'll be snookered! Okay so which one does that ... / 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 →

    This is a video of two Kendo martial artists trying to whack each other with lightsabers. It's basically my idea of the perfect workout. I mean watching it, not actually doing it. One time I watched a guy pedal on a stationary bicycle for almost an hour. You know how many c... / 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 →

    This is a video showing the actors of the Star Wars original trilogy then versus now. SURPRISE: Everybody got older. Except C-3PO and R2-D2, they actually look like they got younger. Do droids age backwards or did somebody just run them through an automated car wash? If I w... / Continue →
