Master Yoda training Luke on Dagobah: it’s an iconic movie scene. And what better way to immortalize Luke’s struggle to gain control over the Force than with an official LEGO set? I can’t think of any.
Adding to Regal Robot’s Separation Collection, the company has introduced two new magnets: a severed Luke Skywalker hand holding a lightsaber and a severed wampa hand. These are joining the previously posted tauntaun head magnet that was the first in the collection.
The highly coveted LEGO 10123 Star Wars: Cloud City set depicts the areas of the city where The Empire Strikes Back‘s climactic scenes took place, including the spot of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker’s dramatic battle.
Flickr user Nick Chen aka solscud made a cute collection of Star Wars minifigures wearing their respective vehicles. For instance, Kylo Ren has his command shuttle, Han Solo is wearing the Millennium Falcon and Rey is, well, in the Millennium Falcon, but with the new different radar dish.
Dismemberment has become a staple in Star Wars films, with Obi-Wan Kenobi being the chopping champ. Sculptor Alessandro Randi aka Codec Zombie aims to preserve the meme with a series of handcrafted collectibles that he calls Saber Cuts, starting with the series’ most famous lost limb: Luke’s right hand.
A few years ago, we saw a really cool ring that was custom made by one talented Star Wars fan. We can’t all be jewelry Jedi, but thanks to Takayas Custom Jewelry you can still wield a lightsaber-inspired ring.
I remember Underoos from when I was a kid. They’re underwear that’s fun to wear! Pretty comfy too.
I had no idea Underoos were back – or that they had Star Wars versions. Awesome! Time to run around in my underwear pretending I’m Boba Fett.
Jeffrey Brown’s Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess might be the cutest Star Wars retcon ever. The books feature a caring Anakin looking after Luke and Leia. Gentle Giant Ltd. is going to release a limited edition bundle of the two books, which will include adorable figurines of the Skywalkers.
Whether you’re on the Light or Dark Side of the Force, there’s one thing we can all agree on: Candy is good. Now, thanks to the confectionery makers of Japan, you can have your lightsaber and eat it too.
I want this in my backyard so bad I can barely stand it. Odds are you remember Luke Skywalker’s old and crumbling looking homestead from Tatooine from the original Star Wars, where he lived with Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru.
One of my favorite scenes from The Empire Strikes Back is when Luke gets captured by the Wampa and is hanging upside-down from the ceiling of his icy cave. He then uses the Force to pull his lightsaber towards his hand, then slices himself down from the ceiling and proceeds to slash off one of the furry creature’s arms.
This shot of Luke and Leia decorating the Xmas tree does look quite funny, though the idea of a dead Vader head on as a tree-topper is a bit morbid. Either way, even with Darth Vader gone, the Skywalkers still have to celebrate Christmas, even if they are in a galaxy far, far away.
There’s a new exhibition featuring some pretty interesting Star Wars stuff coming to Canada in 2012. It’s called Star Wars: Identities. You will apparently get to know the characters of the Star Wars saga “on a whole new level”.
