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.
Man, if I woke up everyday and went to work at Lucasfilm Animation's new offices, I think I'd be in heaven. The house that produced The Clone Wars animation series will soon have a new office building that clearly resembles a Sandcrawler.
There's more to Admiral Ackbar than simply an uncanny sense for detecting traps. Much, much more. This 1983 behind the scenes special from Return of the Jedi features some outtakes of Ackbar singing about how ugly he is, as well as him saying "penetrate it" over and over. It's priceless.
You know what America is in dire need of? An Imperial Walker. Why? Because why the hell not, dammit. AT-AT FOR AMERICA!
Hey, look, another excuse to give George Lucas some more money! Yes, the entire Star Wars saga is coming to Blu-ray on September 16th.
As Japan does its best to recover from the energy plant disaster at Fukushima, we took the opportunity to travel to other parts of the country, in this case Hiroshima, where we found what looks to be a solar-powered replica...

Built as the centerpiece of a spectacular 10,000 square foot Honolulu mansion, the theater makes you feel like Han Solo in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. Custom Home Systems out of San Diego made the theater with all of its electronics and speakers hidden from view, so all you see is the 107-inch screen and the amazing architectural details. There's even a pair of life-sized talking C-3PO and R2-D2, though I really hope this C-3PO isn't one of those droids that jabbers through the entire movie.
