    This is the official crew poster for International Space Station mission Expedition 45. I, for one, did not know they made official crew posters for International Space Station missions. As you can see, apparently all the space cadets up there floating around staging light sa... / Continue →

    This is a fan-made video using clips from existing films to create a make-believe trailer for a Star Wars Vs. Star Trek movie. Which universe do you think would win? I thought about it for five seconds and decided it wasn't worth thinking about any more. Feel free to express... / 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 Darth Gummi, a full-scale replica of Darth Vader's helmet covered with over 1,000 Gummi Bears by artist CrummyGummy, who may or may not actually earn a living covering things with Gummi Bears (do my couch next!). Never thought you'd see a Gummi Bear Darth Vader helmet,... / Continue →

    Note: Obviously, it's not called a tauntaun snowman, it's a snowtauntaun. This is the snowtauntaun made by Redditor Xnipek's friend. That is definitely one tauntaun I wouldn't want to slice open and try sleeping inside of. Honestly, I don't know if I could do that to any ta... / Continue →

    This is future mom Stefaney Giordano's R2-D2 painted pregnant belly. I like the perspective of R2's head, that was a nice touch rather than just a top-down version. Now according to my estimates, I put Stefaney at like, what, two months pregnant? I'm not very good at these t... / Continue →

    This is a video edit from Eclectic Method of all R2-D2's beeps and boops given subtitles from the six existing Star Wars movies. Honestly, I excepted a little more, but it did not deliver. Kind of like a Geekologie article -- you win some and you lose some. Unless you're me,... / 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 →

    7-year old Liam Porter was born without the lower part of his left arm and wore a prosthetic that was useless (looked like a mannequin arm with no functionality). Thankfully, due to there still being decent people on this planet (or is earth a moon?), he was just presented wit... / Continue →

    This is the custom Star Wars landspeeder cat bed built by pet furniture maker Roxy's Dream. It took over 40-hours to complete and is for sale for $600. No word if the cat is included in the price, but for $600 it better be, and it better be able to talk. And not all sassy li... / Continue →

    Seen here clutching a vacuum hose attachment, an x-wing pilot flies his way into a sweded version of the Star Wars Episode VII teaser trailer. I thought it had a surprisingly high production value. And, as far as watchability goes, I'm pretty sure it just blew all of George L... / Continue →

    This is a very short dashcam video of a TIE Fighter crashed on a snowy highway in Germany. Unfortunately, it looks like both pilots survived the accident. Will one of them prove to be the stormtrooper that finally laser-blasts old Luke Skywalker in the face and puts an end to... / Continue →
