    As part of the country's decommunization plan, these are the before and after shots of a Lenin statue in Odessa, Ukraine. Sculptor Alexander Milov turned the Lenin statue into Darth Vader, because Darth Vader was a cool dude who deserves recognition. His life should be celebr... / 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 the half-scale replica of Vader's TIE Fighter built by a group of Germans for Star Wars Celebration Europe. It took over 1,000 man hours and $20,000 to build. And can you think of any better use for 1,000 man hours and $20,000? Because I can't. You think with 2,000 ... / Continue →

    This is Trey Laymon's Ford Raptor that he decked out in Star Wars graphics. Obviously, it's not the truck to rob a bank in. But it is DEFINITELY the truck to eat a double cheeseburger in while you drive. I'd recommend washing that puppy down with a strawberry shake too. One... / Continue →

    This is a video of little Sarah Gallego at Disneyland who, after being presented with an opportunity to train with the Jedi Academy, opts to bow to Darth Vader and join the Dark Side instead. Boy must her parents have been embarrassed! Or devil worshipers. I swear, you never... / Continue →

    Cheer up bro, that's a good lookin' samwich! Because you should never make people wait to see the 1-minute commercial you're paying $6-million to air during the Super Bowl, this is Volkswagen's Star Wars inspired ad. I don't want to ruin it for you, but I'm pretty sure that k... / Continue →

    Andreas Heim, of Denmark, opened a pack of lamb chops earlier this month and, HELLO, DARK SIDE VADER CHOPS! I don't know about you, but I would eat the hell out of that thing. Although, to be honest, I would eat the hell out of unmasked Vader chops. Which are actually shrive... / Continue →

    Now you see folks, THAT is how you quit a job. Remember: the goal whenever leaving an organization is to ensure it crumbles behind you as you walk out the door. So, at that very moment, your employer realizes just how under-appreciated you were. And then is crushed under the... / Continue →

    This kid is pure evil -- just look at him. If evil were a Tetris level on Game Boy, this kid would be a 20. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if, in a few years, I heard he'd brought a lightsaber to school in his backpack. Picture Thanks to Romeo, who once broke ... / Continue →

    Duncan Thomson, 41, and Sammi Gardiner, 39, just got married on Star Wars Day in a Star Wars themed ceremony. And you know what they say about a couple that Star Warses together: they, uh, probably go to conventions and collect action figures? During the wedding, Mr Thomson t... / Continue →

    Not to be outdone by yesterday's AT-AT boombox, some cat went and made an AT-AT iPod dock. Which is basically an AT-AT toy with an electronic turntable glued to the side and spray painted gold. Neat. Might be just the thing I need to add a little geeky flair to my bedroom. ... / Continue →

    I'm not saying wearing a $110 Star Wars themed sports jersey is going to hinder my chances of rounding third base and heading home with a female, but it might. And let's face it, I need all the help I can get. But just in case -- ladies? Who wants to do it while I wear a Jed... / Continue →

    This is the first I'd heard about the limited edition Star Wars x Adidas Super Stars sneakers (do people still say sneakers? I do) but apparently they came out a couple months ago and were limited to 800 pairs per side of the force (that's 800 dark side, 800 light side). So ... / Continue →

    Remember that awesomely awesome decrepit looking AT-AT that won some model contest? Yeah, that thing was awesome. And you might think this one is too depending on how you feel about an AT-AT that's had the hell tagged out of it. Suckadelic Graff-At, 2002 Customized Hasbr... / Continue →

    Apparently they have Darth Vader's helmet on display in the Star Wars exhibit at the Franklin Institute Science Museum I mentioned in last week's Yoda cookie post. So here it is. I'm glad there are pictures of it because I didn't remember it too well from the movie. Sure I c... / Continue →
