A Varsity Jacket for Stormtroopers

The varsity jacket, the universal symbol for jock superiority, unless you’re in the marching band, in which case you’re just an elitist prick. But seriously, I remember the kids from marching band who used to walk around in varsity jackets and they were all assholes. Walking around in a jacket with a drum embroidered on the shoulder does not impress ... Read More »

Wearable Tusken Raider Helmet

Let me tell you the fun I would have with this thing if I lived anywhere near a desert. I’d set up shop behind a sand dune on a frequently ridden ATV trail and just wait for the perfect moment to pop-up from my hidden spot, lift my gaderffii above my head and let out my best sand person roar. ...

Included in the ... Read More »

R2-D2 iPhone Case

It’s not that I don’t love R2-D2 with all of my heart, it’s just that I don’t think I can condone my iPhone smoking. The R2-D2 iPhone Case wraps your Apple device in a shell inspired by our favorite resilient astromech droid. You can pre-order the exclusive case for $29.95 from the Star Wars Shop.

Star Wars as a Silent Movie

If George Lucas had been born sixty years earlier, the Star Wars trilogy would have had quite a different look. Not surprisingly, it would have been just as awesome. This video illustrates just how one of the most action-packed and dramatic scenes in all six of the Star Wars films might have looked if the films had been made in ... Read More »

Jon Stewart Stormtrooper Action Figure

Both with and sans goatee. The Jon Stewart Stormtrooper Action Figure was one of the many awesome little gadgets made especially for last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration V convention, honoring the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back and the culture of Star Wars collectibles. Stewart interviewed George Lucas during the Celebration V festivities. Since Jon Stewart’s goatee went missing ... Read More »
