Star Wars Beer Steins

boba_fett_beer_stein_1

The only respectable way to drink a beer is either straight from the can, or in a beer stein. There’s no shortage of these on the market, with some more creative variations like the Das Can In Stein that turns your cans into steins. The collection we’re looking at today, however, takes the cake in terms of geek appeal. The Star War Steins feature Boba Fett, Darth Vader, or R2-D2 and are made out of solid ceramic. The hinged lid uses a legit pewter thumb lift to reveal your frosty drink inside, while each will hold 22 ounces of liquid. These are heavy, 2 lbs. steins, so it’s no toy. The price is also reflective of this, since they’ll set you back a hefty $49.99.

3D Printed Stormtrooper Foosball Heads

stormtrooper-foosball

We’ve heard it a million times: “I have a 3D printer, but I have no idea what cool stuff to print!” Well, guys, here’s a fun project. If you have a foosball table, YouMagine member Excite created a set of Stormtrooper heads that you can use to replace the ones currently on your table, by simply snapping them over the standard ones. Of course, there are limitations: it’ll only work if you have a Sportcraft table, plus it’ll upset the balance of the players which some more serious aficionados might dislike. But if you’re really looking to spice up your table, the files are available for download on the YouMagine website.

R2D2 Bluetooth Speaker

Star-Wars-R2D2-Bluetooth-Speakerphone

Well, we’re as excited as the next guy to see Star Wars merchandise flooding the Internet, but it is sort of getting to the point where you wonder what item will not be turned into Artoo or Threepio. But hey, this little Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone is sort of cute, and decently priced.

Plug this Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone into a USB port, and it’ll charge up. When it’s charged, either pair the speaker with your Bluetooth-enabled phone or plug your audio device into Artoo’s standard 3.5mm audio jack. Artoo will light up, literally, including the familiar indicator light and some new funky blue “underdome” lighting he’s had installed. Since he’s Bluetooth, you can even make calls on him when you have your phone paired up. But his raison d’etre is to play music for you. The first song we played through our Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone was the Cantina Song. It was also the second. And the third. And the… okay, we’ve got it on loop.

Product Specifications
Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone
– Officially-licensed Star Wars merchandise

– Pairs with Bluetooth®-enabled devices
– On/off button on the front conserves battery

It Doesn’t Get Much Smaller Than These Tiny R/C Star Wars Spaceship Helicopters

star-wars-rc-toy-1

I don’t think you’re looking at anything too high tech, like self-stabilizing quad-copters or whatever. It’s just a bunch of super tiny remote controlled helicopters with a 16 ft. range. Their bodies are shaped like Star Wars battleships, like a TIE Fighter or an X-Wing, which is why they’re cool. A 3 minute charge will get them airborne for about 4 minutes. We can’t tell you how precise the controls are, but our guess is: not at all. Still, it might be good enough to keep you entertained for a while, or to introduce kids to Star Wars. They’re $50 a pop, although you’ll have to deal with a product page in Chinese.

Star Wars Multitool Is Still A Shitty Multitool, But, You Know… Star Wars

millennium-falcon-multi-tool-1

Oh we sure have posted about multitools over the years. And lately, with Kickstarters popularity, we see as much news about “revolutionary” multitools as we do about “life changing” wallets. At the end of the day, it’s just a piece of metal with bits and bobs to help you do stuff. It’s not life changing or even that exciting, to be honest. But hey, this one is shaped like the Millennium Falcon, so it’s got that going for it… which is nice. Features?

– Officially licensed Star Wars multitool
– Made from stainless steel
11 functions:
o Screwdriver
o Earphone Tidy
o Bottle Opener
o Wire Stripper
o 5 box-end wrenches / ring spanners
o Ruler
o Parcel opener
Small/slim enough to fit into a wallet

It’s £10, or about $15USD, and available for pre-order now with shipping in September.
