Ever notice just how ridiculously worthless the Star Wars stormtroopers are? I mean, for the fear-inspiring, rebel-slaughtering shock troops of the Galactic Empire, they sure do go down real easy when anybody shoots them — anywhere. So, what's the issue? Are they simply all hemophiliacs? Are they suicidal? I think it's more likely that the Empire, concerned with balancing the budget, has skimped on its troopers' armor. I'm pretty sure if we were to clothe the troopers in anything else — ANYTHING else — they'd probably do better out there. After all, how hard can it be to stop a little ray of light? Really effin' tough, actually. Last December, the U.S. Navy developed an injector capable of producing the electrons needed to generate megawatt-class laser beams. That's enough energy to power a Eurostar locomotive at top speed! So what's a casualty-weary empire to do? Let's put 10 different modern materials to the test.
How do you make the original Star Wars films terrifyingly frightening? By adding freakish green kappa monsters to it and putting the friggin' Death Star in Darth Vader's eyeball socket. That's how.
Because George Lucas just doesn't have enough money, he's releasing all six Star Wars movies back to theaters after converting them to 3D. And now the first one has a release date: February 10, 2012.
We always wondered what was inside of the Empire's slow-as-turtles All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) and now we know. It's so funny to see how minds of the 70s imagined sci-fi transports.
It's never too early to start planning for Halloween. Hasbro's Star Wars Ultimate FX Lightsabers are nearly exactly like their Force FX Lightsaber big brothers except one thing: they're affordable....
How big of a Star Wars fan are you? Big enough to build your very own Imperial Walker AT-AT out of recycled computer parts? Battle scars also included!
Ever wonder what you would end up doing if you were born a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away? My childhood self would be proud: I got bounty hunter.
Well, we knew it would happen eventually: science has made the famous hologram from Star Wars ("Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.") a reality.
The Force is strong with 3D artist Ansel Hsiao. The man is a Star Wars freak — in a decidedly awesome way. Hsiao is so in tune with 3D modeling, he created these incredibly detailed CG renders of the behemoth that is the Imperial Starship.
Hey, did you ever notice while you're out shoveling snow that you create a lot of trenches that are kinda reminiscent of the Death Star's from Star Wars? This guy did, and it's the funniest thing you'll see all week.
