Summer is nearly over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still hit the pool or swim in the ocean for the next few months. These Star Wars inflatable pool toys are inspiration enough for me to hop back in the waters, even with Fall approaching.
If you want to make the best cup of Imperial tea ever, forget tea bags. You need to soak a Death Star in your cup. A Death Star filled with sweet fragrant tea leaves. This silver space station may not shoot lasers at Alderaan, but it will infuse hot water with tasty (and evil) tea.
I always thought that the fact that the original Death Star had a giant weak spot in the middle that made it blow up was stupid. You’d think they’d design these things to be less susceptible to attack.
Got some old floppy disks lying around? How about a little spare time? Are you a Star Wars fan? If you answered yes to all three of those questions, here’s the perfect project for you – a Millennium Falcon, X-Wing Fighter and Death Star cobbled together from old floppy disk parts.
A while back, we featured a gigantic LEGO diorama of the Death Star landing bay, and it was pretty awesome. It also took over 30,000 bricks and months to build. This is not that LEGO set, but it is nonetheless just as awesome.
This Death Star Wedding cake is the perfect metaphor for marriage. I think. If you can precariously stay balanced on a space station, all will be well. Or maybe it just symbolizes the fact that you do everything together, including destroying Alderaan.
While I definitely recall the part of Portal 2 where Wheatley takes over Aperture Laboratories, I don’t actually remember the part where he builds a giant Death Star version of himself. Perhaps that’s coming in Portal 3?
Star Wars and Minecraft have come together in the most awesome of ways. In a Minecraft crafted movie. Kotaku reader Grahame has recreated the entire ending sequence from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
We’ve seen a few Star Wars dioramas – most of them made with LEGO – but these works of art from the 50th Shizuoka Hobby Show are unbelievably beautiful. They may not have hundreds of characters or battle scenes, but they more than make up for it in terms of polish and detail.
So why is it that every time I think that all possible ideas for new Star Wars merchandise have been 100% exhausted, someone comes out with yet another product which nobody ever thought about. Case in point, these R2-D2 mints.
Luke, these are your speakers. Major League Mods – who made the projector equipped R2-D2 Xbox 360 casemod – showed off this Star Wars themed sound system at the recently concluded New York Comic-Con. It has two TIE fighter speakers and a Darth Vader bust converted into an iPhone dock.
Jay Hoff is a teacher from Florida, and he recently combined his love of LEGOs and Star Wars in a monstrous 30,000-brick wonder. He chose to recreate the Death Star’s landing bay, which is impossible to forget because that’s where the Emperor landed and was met with his honor guard.
