    This is the $60 custom painted Han Solo in carbonite toilet seat available from eBay seller derbycovers. It's only printed and painted though, it's not actually 3-D, so if you thought this was going to be a cheap way to experience sitting on Han Solo's face, think again. I kn... / 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 video of Darth Vader's iconic 'I am your father' line in twenty different languages. I believe they're all the actual voice-overs from the international releases. Not to brag or anything, but I just listened to it all twice and now I'm fluent in all twenty lan... / Continue →

    This is a short video of General Grievous at the recent MCM Comic Con in London. The cosplayer does a great job of hiding his real arms and legs. Unless that actually IS General Grievous just PRETENDING to be a cosplayer dressed as General Grievous. Stranger things have happ... / 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 a highlight real of The Empire Strips Back, a burlesque show inspired by the second Star Wars movie and performed by the folks of Geekenders. It was really something. I have only been to one burlesque show in my life, and from what I could gather it was titty-tassle th... / Continue →
