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.

It’s a smaller unit, and it has two settings, cold and warm, so you can keep your items at either temperature.

This Is The Trash Can You’re Looking For

trash-r2

R2-D2. Trashcan. Yes, it’s R2-D2, and it’s a trashcan. Is it blasphemous? Is it cool? We can’t tell. All we know is that Star Wars fury is once again in full swing, and perhaps as dynamic as the movie marketing machine is, so is the merchandising craze. There are Star Wars… things up the wazoo these days, and people are gobbling them up with renewed fervour. The Star Wars R2-D2 Trashcan is an officially licensed Lucasfilm collectible, and is sold exclusively by ThinkGeek in the US. The head pops open when you press Artoo’s foot, to reveal an 11″ tall inner waste bin. And like any self-respecting officially licensed Star Wars collectible, it’s not cheap: $129.

Can The Force Help You Afford This $10,000 R2-D2 Pinball Table/Coffee Table?

R2-D2-coffee-table-pinball-machine-1

You have to be a serious fan of the franchise to consider dropping 10 large on a coffee table. Sure, it’s decked out to look a lot like R2-D2. And sure, it’s got a fully functional pinball table as its core. And yeah, sure, there’s even a mini slideprojector (picturing R2 in the Death Stars’ sewage), a flashlight, sounds, lighting programs, and a fully functional animated droid on the play field. And ok, yeah, it did take over 320 hours to assemble… But $10,000? Yeah. That’s a heck of a lot for a piece of functional furniture, no matter how cool it looks. Still, if you’re really motivated, it does look like the company, Altar Furniture, will make you one.

“I Love You” “I Know” Rings Are Made For The Coolest Of Lovers

iknow-1

When they were filming the original Star Wars, the scene where Han Solo is about to be frozen and carbonate, and he has to say farewell to Leia calls for him to reply a tepid “I love you too” to her expected “I love you”. Instead, Harrison Ford improvised the now-famous “I know”, and the rest is history. It sets the tone for his character, and makes for a scene so memorable that ThinkGeek has seen it appropriate to make two rings that commemorate the exchange. The “I love you / I know” rings are made from 316L surgical stainless steel, are officially licensed Star Wars merchandise, and feature the Rebel Alliance symbol secretly engraved inside the band. If you and your significant other consider yourselves fans of the franchise, as well as fans of each other, you might want to consider spending the very reasonable $20 asking price.

star-wars-childs-bath-towel-with-yoda-ears-hoodie-0

If your child runs away from you when the time comes to rub the grime off his body, perhaps a little brainwashing is in order. First, get him to fall in love with the Star Wars franchise. That should be easy enough. Then, introduce him to this awesome bath towel with Yoda ears. Done! He’ll be asking you when he can take a bath, and not the other way around.

It’s made by Etsy seller ‘MiddleBrainedCanvas’, but her page claims it’s currently sold out. However it seems she makes these to order, so you might try your luck anyway. Judging by the price of her other towels, this one should come out to about $28.
