These strange cylinder-head Stormtrooper and Darth Vader are actually speakers, although they look more like lamps. Either way, they’re butt-ugly.
And no, they aren’t bobbleheads either. You can simply plug in your mp3 player and play your tunes.
During their visit to the 2010 Nuremberg Toy Fair, the guys over at Hobby Media snapped this pic of some awesome new LEGO Star Wars minifig alarm clocks.
Each 8-inch tall maxi/minifig sits on your bedside table, and includes an oversize LCD alarm clock in its squared-off chest.
Science fiction fans know the name Ralph McQuarrie. The illustrator and designer has contributed to the look of some of the most popular films and TV series, including Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T., and the big one: the original Star Wars trilogy.
In a galaxy far, far away, tuna proved more powerful than any Force. It brought peace and joy to all.
Enemies put down their lightsabers and sat down to enjoy a meal together. There was much dancing and posing and who the hell is that dude in the back supposed to be?
If you liked Marc Ecko’s line of Star Wars hoodies then you should prepare your wallet for another deluge of Star Wars-themed gear, although this time it’s from Adidas, so most of them are shoes, and unlike the detailed Ecko hoodies, some of them are just classic designs slapped with a Star Wars name and a palette swap.
Pumpkins are certainly versatile gourds. Carve ’em, cook ’em, or just leave ’em sitting around–they’re a useful fruit. Pumpkin sculpture? Sure, that could make sense. But a pumpkin Star Wars sculpture? It’s a whole new world for pumpkins.
I know that Halloween’s still more than a month away, but after seeing the awesomely cute Barf Vader, I decided to do a thorough research on – okay I hit Amazon. and Etsy. More on that later; let’s just say that most of the costumes will make your spawn ten times more adorable, while some will probably cause your child to hate you when he or she grows up and sees your old Halloween pictures.
This Darth Vader cake is simply amazing, no two ways about it. It’s well-designed (just look at those fabric folds!) and perhaps even better executed. But regardless, there is something completely hilarious (to me) about choosing a filling for your Darth Vader.
I’m not sure who the target demo is for these Star Wars Imperial incense holders. Maybe they’re for geekster-hippies? Dunno. What I do know is that they’re weird, and therefore I had to write about them.
We already featured Jon Jandran aka Hailrazer’s awesome Dreamcast portable mod, the dreamtrooper. He originally wanted to paint the dreamtrooper’s case black and call it the DarthCast, but he decided to stick with the original console’s white color.
I’m not a big Star Wars nut, but I would gladly hand over my money for these awesome Star Wars hoodies by Marc Ecko. I want all of them. Here are some of the designs:
That’s the Vader hoodie ($100 (USD)) together with the X Wing Pilot hoodie ($150).
The Darth Vader lightsaber flashlight is equipped with 4 LED lights and has various authentic sound effects.
I guess that’s all a lightsaber can do in the hands of mere mortals. I’m also wondering if the red light is any good for illumination, or for adding a sense of dread on dark nights.
I’m no Star Wars fan, so I wouldn’t know if there’s any canonical reason for Hasbro to bundle Mighty Muggs figures of Darth Vader, Darth Maul and Darth Revan (of KotOR fame) together with … Han Solo in a Hoth hoodie.
How’d you like to wake up to a Sith Lord staring you down in the middle of the night? This Darth Vader alarm clock/radio from Sakar is sure to scare the crap out of you if you happen to roll over at 3am and stare into his glowing red LED eyeballs.
These aren’t the first Star Wars themed flash drives I’ve seen, but they do have the biggest heads I’ve seen on a Star Wars flash drive, so at least they’ve got that going for them.
The bobblehead-esque USB drives feature the likenesses of Darth Vader,Yoda, a Stormtrooper and Boba Fett, and each one stores 2GB of data, which isn’t a whole lot, but should be enough to handle those critical Death Star blueprints.
