For Otherworldly Riffs: C-3PO Electric Guitar

C3PO Guitar

 

C-3PO is many things, and now he’s an electric guitar, too. Etsy user Marc Potter is in the business of creating unique guitars and other instruments like banjos using the most unusual of materials. He had a C-3PO collector’s case lying around, so naturally, he took it and turned it into a guitar!

Rainy Day Instruments presents …#063 C3PO electric Star Wars Guitar, Nice used Behringer maple neck securely attached to a Classic C3PO collectors case. Action figure case still can open and TALKS!

Our hearts bleed for the destruction of the classic toy that’s in otherwise fine condition, but isn’t the guitar just a beaute? You can check out Marc’s Etsy page for more of his creations, including a banjo crafted from a bed pan!

Life Size Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Replica Can Be Yours For A Lot Of Money

carbonite-top

We find it interesting just how significant an icon Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite is. Follow this link to get an idea of what we mean. But no matter how many fridge decals, ice molds, and blankets become available for purchase, it’s hard to top an actual 1:1, 7ft. tall hand-crafted replica of Boba Fett’s most prized possession. That’s exactly what you’ll be getting if you can manage to stomach the $6,999 asking price. If it’s any consolation, there are “flexible payment plans” available, though if you need to get into debt to own something like this, we’d like to suggest you don’t have your priorities in place. It becomes available for pre-order today.

lightsaber-tongs-2

Would Darth Vader have been able to grill a mean steak? Would Luke Skywalker be able to BBQ a half decent burger?

But that hasn’t stopped The Fowndry from releasing this official set of Star Wars Lightsaber™ BBQ Tongs. Yes, they do make the classic lightsaber sounds when you press a button so you can reenact your favourite battles as you wait for the ribs to be just right.

The Force is With This 30-Foot ‘Star Wars’ Tapestry

Star Wars Tapestry

If you love something, then whatever you do, no matter how tiring it is, becomes a labor of love. This is the case with artist Aled Lewis and the Coruscant Tapestry, the 30-foot Star Wars-themed tapestry that he knitted over a span of six months. It’s crammed with Jedi goodness and loads of Wookies, droids, wampas, Sith Lords, and of course, everyone’s favorite grand master Jedi, Yoda, along with highlights from the franchise that die-hard fans will be able to identify in a jiffy.

Every stitch on the Klostern fabric was made by hand and Aled’s attention to detail is amazing. Not only that, but he also sewed in some quotes written in Aurebesh.Continue Reading

His and Hers: Star Wars Han and Leia Hand Towels

Star Wars Han and Leia Bathroom Hand Towels

 

There’s nothing like love that transcends borders. Kind of like the one Princess Leia and Han Solo share. Back in 2005, Lucas confirmed that Leia and Han did, indeed, live happily ever after. That’s something everyone already assumed, but still, it was nice to get confirmation. Now you can be reminded of that fact every day with these Han and Leia Hand Towels that’ll add a little extra something in your bathroom.

These soft towels have silhouettes of Leia and Han on one side and the Rebel Alliance insignia on the other side. It isn’t complete without the Star Wars logo, so you’ll find that in the corner. You’ve always said it with roses; why not declare your love with towels this year?

May The Force Be With Every Recharge: Star Wars Lightsaber Power Bank

Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber Battery Charger

Bored with the usual crop of power banks that are available in the market? If you’re a huge fan of Star Wars and are looking for something other than the usual rectangular power banks, then you might want to check the Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber Battery Charger. It essentially looks like the handle of a lightsaber, with the microUSB ports located at its base.

Since it is a lightsaber charger, it also has LED light that glows red with the flick of a switch. So you can, you know, play pretend once in a while when you’re bored and when you need to recharge the power bank or charge up any of your devices.

Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Door Decal

han-solo-carbonite-door-decal

You can’t help but be amazed at the longevity that the Star Wars franchise has, especially in the merchandise department. Granted, it’s partly because of people like us who constantly go on about all the things you can buy and who keep the brand alive, but we only do it because it still resonates with our readers. Take the above Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Door Decal for example. It’s a life-size $140 sticker that you place on your door. And we bet some of you are going to think “hey, that’s pretty cool!” Matter of fact, we don’t even hate it; we’re just impressed that 36 years after the first film came out people are still buying this stuff. Whether that’s a testament to how good the movies were or about how effective a marketing effort the folks at ILS (or whoever is behind this movement) are making, we’re not going to speculate. All we can do is tell you a bit more about this sticker and move on: it’s repositionable, and is finished in matte but you can ask for it to be done glossy.

This Is The Cup Holder Charger You’ve Been Looking For

r2d2-cupholder

Is it even possible to write about R2-D2 without making that reference? We suppose amongst more talented writers it is, but that’s the kind of quality content you get here at OhGizmo! In any case, you’re looking at a USB-charger that sits in your car’s upholder. It plugs itself into the cigarette lighter and then provides electricity to whatever gadgets of yours recharge through USB. Its arms are adjustable, which allow it to fit in almost any size holder. There are two ports, and what appears to be an LED, for good measure. It’s $50, which is only a lot of money if you hate Star Wars.

Death Star Wall Tiles Could Liven Up Your Home

Star-Wars-Home-Theater-Death-Star-Tiles-6

You’re looking at a set of 12″ by 12″ custom made ceramic tiles depicting various Star Wars/Death Star sceneries. If you were to cover an entire wall with them, you’d end up with an intricate landscape oddly reminiscent of the one you saw on the Empire’s planet-eating creation. There are 14 different ones, each 3 to 4 inches deep. The set was created for a client that was looking to create a fancy home theatre, which means they probably cost quite a bit. We’re just not sure how much. The company, Tom Spina Designs, doesn’t list prices, but they do seem open to making a custom decor for interested parties, so they might be willing to make more of these.
