Darth Vader Mailbox: Welcome to the Dark Side…Of the Post

Darth Vader Mailbox

I wouldn’t mind handing my bills over to the dark side of the force every once in a while. Kind of like how every mailman has to when they’re delivering mail to Sensei Monkey Boy’s friend, because he’s got this awesome Darth Vader mailbox instead of some boring slit at the door.

If that’s not awesome enough, it also has a lightsaber flag that you can pull up and extend to show the full extent of the Sith Lord, even if he is just in his mailbox form. You can hit the break for more images of the awesome Star Wars-themed mailbox.

They Walk Among Us: Prank Shows Jedi Using the Force to Open Elevator Doors

The force is with this Jedi, and he likes using his powers to make elevator doors re-open just as they’re sliding shut. You might dismiss it as an odd but amusing coincidence the first time it happens, but when it happens three more times, then you know something’s up. Either this dude really has telekinetic powers or he’s got someone on the outside..

I think it’s pretty clear which of these options is true.

The Star Wars-themed prank was thought up by the JesterLads at King’s College London. It’s pretty hilarious and you can easily replicate it if you want to pull the same prank on other people.

Light Up Lightsaber Knitting Needles

knitting-needles-star-wars-1

It’s pretty amazing the kinds of things you can make with knitting needles. But it’s not just the resulting craftwork that can look good; your needles themselves could use a little livening up. The Light Saber Knitting Needles pictured above are made from acrylic and feature an LED at the base. That material was chosen because it focuses and extends the light the diode emits, so it’s perfect for the intended effect. Of course they’ll look better in the dark, but who stitches in the dark?

If you want your own, you’re unfortunately going to have to make them. The link below points to an Instructables page with specific steps for this awesome DIY.

Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Light Switch

han-solo-light-switch

Star Wars related? Check.

Han Solo related? Check.

A little dirty? Check.

Oh, we’re already tired of this “question, check” way of writing… The point is, you’re looking at a pretty cool light switch that’s also somewhat obscene. Perfect for any geek that doesn’t mind offending a little bit. And it should go without saying that this is in no way endorsed by LucasArt, or Disney, or anyone. It’s handmade by someone on Etsy, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they were to receive a C&D shortly, so get yours quick.

It’s $40.

Now You Can Own a 3D-Printed Stormtrooper With Your Face On It

3D Printed Stormtroopers

Disney owns the Star Wars franchise now and they can do whatever they want with it, including adding themed attractions to their parks that will let you have a Stormtrooper 3D-printed with your face on it. It’s called the Star Wars D-Tech Me experience and it’ll be available at Disney’s parks starting this summer.

The whole scanning process will take all but ten minutes, but you’ll have to wait around 8 weeks for the delivery of your customized Stormtrooper. The entire thing will set you back $99.95 plus taxes and shipping charges.

Star Wars Costumes for Your Pooch: You’ll Love ‘Em, He’ll Hate ‘Em!

Star Wars Dog

You can’t ride a dog like you ride a horse, but you can let certain creatures ride it, provided they’re the right shape and size. I’m talking about select characters from the Star Wars franchise that are being featured in this set of doggy costumes by Costume Craze.

The costimes will transform your pooch into a Bantha, Dewback, Tauntaun, or AT-AT. And to make the reference even clearer, each of these costumes feature the appropriate passenger on the species of choice. For example, a stalwart Stormtrooper sits high and mighty on the back of the Dewback costume, ready to attack.

Would You Suck On This DeathStar?

death-star-lollipop

Because it’s a lollipop. That’s why you’d maybe consider sucking on it. It’s a nice looking lollipop shaped like the DeathStar.

The mold I use is unique and hand crafted, allowing for no seams. Each side is poured independently and is completely smooth all the way around. The front of the lollipop is a proprietary blend of Isomalt, Sugar and Corn Syrup. This blend produces supurb clarity. The backside is poured with a mixture of corn syrup and sugar, color black.
Length including stick is about 5″ and weight is 1.2oz each. Flavor is Marshmallow.

Handcrafted candies don’t come cheap, but we think they novelty alone is worth the $13 for 6 price tag. The artist also has lollies shaped like other things, such as the Eye of Sauron.

May Tot’s Force Be With You: Star Wars Themed Baby Nursery

Star Wars Themed Baby Nursery

Nothing beats having the Force protect your little newborn. Of course, you can’t have Luke and the whole gang come and babysit, but you can bring a little part of their world into your home and into the life of your baby by doing what Ireland-based photographer Carissa XY did: build a Star Wars-themed nursery.

From the framed photo of Harrison Ford on the wall to the Death Star and Starship mobile, I’m sure her kid will thank her one day for letting him grow up with the Force on his side.

For Geeks Down Under: R2-D2 Bra Was Made to Be Poked

That’s probably not the most spot-on usage of ‘down under’, but we couldn’t resist. Obviously this R2-D2 bra isn’t just for geeks hailing from Australia, since I’m sure Star Wars aficionados will jump at the chance to own one. Unfortunately, this interactive piece of underwear isn’t for sale–but you can make one, if you want one.

It’s not just awesome for its design. Like I said earlier, it’s ‘interactive’. All you have to do is poke the nips to see magic happen (in more ways than one, if you’re lucky.)

Full instructions on how to make your own are up on Instructables.
