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.

Cool Parents Make Lucky Kid An Awesome R2-D2 Dresser

2 - C87Gbec

This has been around for a couple of years, but we just stumbled upon it. It’s a simple dresser painted to look kind of like R2-D2. Ok, a lot like R2-D2. It was made by Imgur user zombiecontroller for his kid, one Conan, back in 2013.

My parents once made me a snow sled out of a garbage can lid, and tried to make me believe it was a flying saucer. For some reason they were sad when I wouldn’t buy it. I still love them: not everyone can be creative. Good on little Conan here that he got parents with some arts & crafts skills.

do-it-yourself-lightsaber-kits

It’s pretty clear there’s a new Star Wars movie in the works because the merchandising machine is starting to run full steam. Hasbro has announced a cool line of lightsaber toys that can be customized in many ways, allowing children young and old alike to create lightsabers that are as weird as they’d be potentially lethal to the person who wields them.

The main Jedi Master Lightsaber set (for ages 4 and up, $49.99 includes a lightsaber with lights and electronic sounds, a pair of lightdaggers, an expansion hilt and a variety of connectors.

From there, kids can mIx and match from three other assortments with connectors and lightsaber blades tied to various characters. The electronic lightsaber ($19.99) comes in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker flavors, the foam lightsaber ($14.99) has Yoda, Vader and Luke variants, and the extend lightsaber ($9.99) offers something for Luke, Vader and Anakin Skywalker fans.

The line was on display at New York’s Toy Fair last week and will be launching this fall, in time for the release of the new movie in December.

Millenium Falcon DIY Drone

RC-Millenium-Falcon-1

What happens when you combine two of the hottest geek hot-button topics in one? A viral sensation, is what. And that’s exactly what’s happening with Redditor Olivier-FR’s Millennium Falcon project. He combined a quadcopter with an aluminum and carbon frame to create a badass flying machine. Better yet, he detailed his build step by step so that any enterprising Star Wars fan can attempt to build his own. And to top all this off, Olivier-FR has also hinted that his next project will be a TIE Fighter. Considering the amount of interest this project is garnering, we expect to see him motivated enough to follow through on that second flyer.
