Once in a while, George Lucas and co. will release some really epic Star Wars gear, like these clothes by Adidas or that 3,000-brick Lego Star Destroyer. As long as the gear is proportionate in size to the epic-ness of Star Wars, it's welcome. Take this new book, Star Wars: The Blueprints. It's 35 pounds, has 500 original blueprints from the movies, from star ships to droids to architectural landscapes, The Blueprints has it all, so long as you have at least $500 to buy a copy.
Here's the latest line of Star Wars-inspired apparel and footwear from adidas Originals, which take cues from the movies to create some wearable-outside-of-comic-con styles.
Let's be honest and admit that most licensed movie products are complete junk. Even more so, is Star Wars merch. If there's anybody who knows how to milk a brand to oblivion, it's George Lucas. Strangely enough, this hair dryer based off of Darth Vader's mask is calling us from a galaxy far far away.
Usually when we see a Lego something this big, it's from a brick-crazed enthusiast who either has a ton of creativity, or a ton of coffee. This time around, it's an official Lego Star Wars playset, part of the company's Ultimate Collector Series, and it's being billed as the longest Lego creation the company has ever released.
Hmm, looks like that Jawa got a little lost. This isn't the backwater desert planet you're looking for, but let's face it, it probably should be.
For what's essentially a big brick with treads, the Jawa Sandcrawler from Star Wars is pretty damn cool. Lego whiz "Marshal Banana" has faithfully recreated the boxy vehicle using 10,000 pieces over nine months of hard labor, and it's even fully remote controllable to boot — inside and out.
Quake in fear, Star Wars fans: George Lucas has been hard at work penning a new live-action Star Wars TV series, and he apparently already has a whopping 50 hours done so far. I assume 45 hours of that involve Jar Jar Binks leading debates in the galactic senate.
Designs for soapbox derby cars have been known to turn some heads, but none have caught and held our attention longer than this X-Wing Fighter. "The Papier Boy's" X-Wing doesn't just look amazing, but it also has a rotatable R2-D2 that's controlled by a re-wired NES controller. The Force is definitely strong with this fighter.
How do you make industrial robots exciting? By giving them lightsabers and having them battle, it turns out.
Today is Star Wars day (May the Fourth...get it?!), so Lucas and co. have announced the full rundown of what to expect from the entire six-movie Blu-ray set they're releasing on September 16th.
