Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet

No doubt about it, the Star Wars universe just wouldn’t be the same without the shiny white uniforms of the Stormtroopers, but maybe the boss Stormtrooper man could wear a steampunk-themed helmet. You know, just to differentiate himself from the crowd. Though this might defeat the purpose. I think the anonymity of Stormtroopers added to the fascist overtone of the Empire. Almost ...

Death Star Watermelon

Now this could put quite a damper on your picnic. That’s no moon… that’s a watermelon. Om nom nom. Juiciest damn space station in the universe. Now, if melon isn’t your thing, you can always try some of the delicious Pumpkin Death Star. Or at least whatever’s left of Pumpkin Alderaan. Link [via]

Star Wars Cantina Band Played on Chapman Stick

The Cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope is one of my favorite movie scenes of all-time, and not in small part due to the awesome jazzy soundtrack which leads us into the intergalactic bar in Mos Eisley. Chapman Stick virtuoso Guillaume Estace takes a stab at the Cantina Band theme using the unconventional, yet versatile musical instrument. I ...

Super Powers!: Girl Can Properly Identify LEGO Minifigs Using Only Her Mouth

Superman has his super-strength. Batman has his gadgets (and his finger). Spiderman has his radioactive spidey senses. But none can match the unadulterated power of this girl who recently appeared on German TV. Not only did she get to sit in Captain Kirk’s chair (for reasons that alludes me), but she can pretty accurately identify Star Wars LEGO minifigs using only her mouth, with ...

Che-Bacca

Freedom fighting for all Wookiee-kind. It really is a shame that I know how to spell Chewbacca without even thinking, and that I know the home planet of Wookiee’s happens to be Kashyyyk without even so much as opening a new tab in my browser, yet I have to do my research in order to properly spell Che Guevara. Link ...

Star Wars Gone Wild Tattoo

Remember a few months ago when we posted about the Star Wars Burlesque show which featured a scantily clad Boba Fett and the like? Well, it was hot, so you should probably check it out. But anyway, apparently someone was so enamored with the concept that they had the image of the ample breasted Stormtrooper tattooed on their skin. As ...

Hi-Ho Fluffy, AWAY! Darth Vader Mounts A Kitty

See, what what George Lucas forgot to tell us was that everything in this galaxy far, far away was actually miniaturized. The Empire seems a lot less frightening now, doesn’t it? Although I’d still watch out for those lightsabers. They can probably cause some serious burns. In this rare photographic shot of Darth in all of his miniature glory, you can ...

R2-D2 Cake: Taste the Droid

Fellow GEARhead, Philly, wrote to us to tell us of her thrill at finding this excellent R2-D2 cake, which she said was particularly exciting because she had “always wondered what a droid tasted like.” Well, let me tell you, droids come in many flavors. Some taste like straight up metal, but then there are others that have that generic chicken-y ...

LEGO Star Wars Foosball Table

When I first saw this foosball table, I thought the only LEGOy-ness about it was the minifig soccer men. Which is pretty cool in its own right, but ho-hum. There’s just too much LEGO competition. But then I took a closer look and realized that the whole damn table was made of LEGOs. And my geeky flag went up. Eureka! ...

Darth Vader Wii Sensor Bar Holder

When he’s not making promises of baked goods or plotting his destruction of Christmas, Darth Vader just likes to chill out and play with his Wii, but not in the traditional way we’re familiar with. Of course not, come on, could you see Vader gaming to the tune of Super Mario Bros? I think not. No, the Darth man likes ...
