Given all of the things that Disney has purchased over the years, we’re surprised they have yet to buy Nintendo or at least the Pokémon franchise. If they did, they’d probably create some crazy Star Wars / Pokémon mashup merch.
If there’s one thing you can count on in the Star Wars universe, it’s that if you build a big round killer space station, it’s sure to have some kind of major weakness that can be exploited to blow it to smithereens.
There is nothing cheesy about the Death Star – especially if you lived on Alderaan. But that didn’t stop Disney from making a fully-operational cheese board that looks like Darth Vader’s killer spherical space station.
Unlike the actual Death Star, this one is crafted from rubberwood, and holds a set of cheese utensils inside: a cleaver, planer, fork-tipped knife, a spreader (and a Stormtrooper.)
Did you know the giant space slug that lived inside that asteroid in The Empire Strikes Back was called an Exogorth? Me either. You learn something new every day. Well, now you can have your very own Exogorth to keep on your desktop.
The Millennium Falcon is best known for its ability to do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. But did you know it’s also good for cutting parsnips? Or chopping onions? Or julienning carrots? Well, it is if you pick up this Millennium Falcon cutting board from Promi Design.
Who doesn’t love Baby Yoda? He’s adorable, inquisitive, and a little badass. We also don’t know anything about where he came from or why he has his abilities, which makes him a bit mysterious. Eventually, I’m sure these things will be revealed, and hopefully he’ll continue to be as cute as the day we first laid eyes on him.
If you’ve spent any time over in Japan, you know that those stick-on beauty masks are everywhere. They come in all kinds of designs, from panda bears to Hello Kitty. Now, Star Wars fans can get in on the moisturizing goodness too!
When you see a TIE fighter on fire, it usually means it’s been hit by a Rebel ship and it’s about to explode into a massive fireball. But here’s one case where a flaming TIE fighter will last for a good long time.
Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) is arguably the most adorable character in the history of Star Wars. We love his expressions, his curiosity, and the fact that he also has badass Jedi powers. LEGO has their own official Baby Yoda minifig in the works, but the only way to get one initially will be with the $129 Razor Crest model, and even then you’ll have to wait until September to get one.
With everyone doing video conferences to keep in touch these days, we’re getting a look into everyone’s homes. If you don’t want people to see how much of a slob you are, or just don’t want them to see your stuff, a good virtual background can come in handy.
The original Star Wars trilogy is packed with memorable moments. Among them was the scene in Return of the Jedi where Princess Leia, wearing not much more than a metal bikini, uses the very chains that bind her to strangle her captor, Jabba the Hutt.
Star Wars fans, it looks like there are a couple of nifty new LEGO sets coming that you’ll want to add to your collection. This duo of Stormtrooper and Boba Fett busts do a great job replicating the curves of the on-screen helmets, and will look great sitting on your bookshelf.
If you are more aligned with the Dark Side than the Light Side of the force, I just found your new office chair. Just sit your butt on the Emperor’s Throne Armchair and you can watch space battle from your throne room, with your withered face and evil smile.
Sure, she may be made of paper and is susceptible to fire. Sure, she can be crushed easily, but this Millennium Falcon origami ship can deliver some killer paper cuts to the Empire. She’s a fast ship alright, but fast to build?
Since The Mandalorian was released close to Christmas last year, not many official toys of Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) made it to market in time for the holidays. That’s all changing in 2020, and this might be the best one yet.
