Watch Adorable Daisy Ridley Give An Interview While Building A Lego Millennium Falcon  

While we wait for The Last Jedi to drop, Disney seems to be doing a whole lot of promotion for the film. In this interview by Elle Magazine, Daisy Ridley, who obviously plays Rey in the new trilogy, answers questions about herself and her co-stars all while building a Lego version of the  Millennium Falcon.

Now to be fair, it’s not like she’s building the 7,500 piece Millennium Falcon. That would probably make this interview longer than watching all three trilogies, aka, the Trilogies Trilogy.

Hit the jump for the short interview.

Pack It Up, They Win: Family Puts Up Incredible Millennium Falcon Holiday Decoration

Sick of the same old Santa Claus roof display? Why not be a little more like Colby Powell and his family. They decided to switch it up and put up the ultimate Christmas decoration for the ultimate Christmas movie, Star Wars.

The 29 foot long creation is an incredible piece made out of lumber, lots of PVC pipe, and an old parachute that brings the star ship to life-size reality (not even close to life-size). The whole creation ended up weighing around 700 pounds, which ended up requiring the family to rent a crane to get it on the roof.

Make Magazine has all the details of the decoration’s construction and it’s very impressive. Of course, you’d have to wonder how they’re going to get it down. Personally, I’d just throw rocks at it until it comes crashing down. But then again, if that’s on my house, it’s never coming down.

Hit the jump for more shots of the beauty and a short video of its construction.

You Can Now Buy Star Wars IV’s Opening Crawl As A Floor Runner

IT IS A PERIOD OF CIVIL WAR…and so on.

If you’re the type of person whose man-cave is already decked out wall-to-wall in sci-fi movie posters, and shelves storing your valued collectibles, than maybe it’s time to work on that bare wood floor. Think about all that valuable space that’s just sitting there, not yet geekified.

Well, you can kiss your worries away with the Star Wars: Title Crawl Floor Runner. It’s like any other floor runner, but this one will let everyone know where you stand on the issue of “Who shot first?”.  Its comes in at 26″ wide x 77″ long, is made from Polyester Pile.

It’s available for $40 from ThinkGeek, and personally, I think it would look really cool in anyone’s collection of Star Wars memorabilia.

Star Wars ‘Star Destroyer’ Ring is Probably Not For The Financially Responsible

How much do you love Star Wars, a lot? Enough to buy a $450 ring designed to look like a Star Destroyer? Because that’s what geek.jewelry is offering to the biggest and least fiscally responsible Star Wars fans.

I have to say, the ring actually looks really great, and it’s available in combos of Sterling Silver/Cubic Zirconia all the way up to 14k White Gold/Diamonds.

You’d have to be a serious fan to want to spend this much on a piece of Star Wars jewelry though. Like, ‘I know all the words to the original trilogy’ serious. Or, ‘I only watch the movies on original VHS, because it doesn’t have any special effects added’ serious. Or even, ‘I’ve sent death threats to George Lucas over his handling of Jar-Jar Binks, and last year I was convicted of felony harassment, but had my sentence lessened because I cried like hell and told the judge I was super sorry’, serious.

Cool ring though.

That’s No Moon: Disney’s Attempt To Hide The Millennium Falcon Fails

 

If you were driving down the M3 outside of London, you may have seen an array of shipping containers. Now, to most people that’s where the story would end as it’d be nearly impossible to get a look inside the array from the ground, but some geniuses decided to use Google Maps and discovered a poor attempt at trying to hide a Millennium Falcon.

It was first spotted in June, and while parts of Star Wars: The Last Jedi were filmed in London, there’s no clear reason why Disney was trying to hide the spaceship. Nonetheless, they completely failed. I mean how hard is it to get a tarp, or two?

The Last Jedi releases on December 15th, but you probably already knew that.

Learn To Duel Like A Jedi At This Lightsaber Academy

If you’ve ever wanted to learn to fight with a lightsaber you can now take a class that’ll teach you to fight like a real Jedi…if you’re in Singapore.

Each 60 minute class promises to show you the basics to becoming an apprentice Jedi. Now, 60 minutes may seem like a short amount amount of time to learn lightsaber techniques, but just look at Luke, he had almost no training but he saved the day, didn’t he? And Rey has literally no training at all. Basically I’m saying you could become a better Jedi than Rey by flying to Singapore and signing up for a single 60-minute session.

At the end of the class, you get to fight an opponent one-on-one and the winner gets to take the loser’s hand. Oh, and the lightsabers make awesome whooshing noises and light-up, so cool.

Each class costs $25. I suppose it’s more of a fun thing to do with a couple of friends if you’re in the area, but I’m pretty sure I can’t refund a plane ticket to Singapore, so I’ll see you losers when I’m a Jedi Master.

Darth Vader Mask BBQ and Fire Pit

Sometimes you buy a product because it does something cool. Sometimes you buy it just because it looks awesome. The Darth Vader BBQ and Fire Pit will be bought mostly because of the latter reason, although it does appear to be a competent fire pit and BBQ, what with its two-rack charcoal grill with swing-out cooking surface. But let’s not pretend that the main appeal here is the sight of a Vader mask spitting out fire while simultaneously cooking up some burgers. It’s a handmade product, and will only set you back £399 (~$508).

This Is The Millennium Falcon Multi-tool You’ve Been Looking For

Look, there’s no getting around it: one day, every item that exists will come in a Star Wars version. And we’re ok with that. How can you not be, when you see something like this Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool?

The Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit comes equipped with four hex keys, two screwdrivers (one flat-head, one philipps), and an adjustable wrench built into the ship’s helm. The hex keys store away nicely in the back underside of the ship which is sealed shut with the power of magnets. Screwdrivers tuck away in the sides, and the wrench is adjusted by a wheel located in the center of the Falcon.

It’s just a fantastic little tool to own, even if you never use it as intended. And at $30, it makes for the perfect Christmas present. It might even not be too late to order it, if you buy it today.
