New Star Wars: The Clone Wars Toys From Hasbro

Start checking stores soon — UGO dug up photos of some of the toys Hasbro’s manufacturing in support of the upcoming new Star Wars animated content. My favorite: the “Defense of the Death Star 1” early TIE fighter. There’s also what appears to be a kick-ass clone helmet, a number of sweet-looking blasters (one with […]

The R2DToque

As a guy who’s spent his share of time in the shop, I can attest that a toque is a total necessity when it’s cold. The only thing better, of course, is a cunning hat, which (in addition to announcing your allegiance to Browncoats everywhere) keeps your ears warmer than a toque. But as toques […]

X-Wings On Ice

Gizmodo turned up this fanboy-rockin’ X-Wing sled today. It was part of Minneapolis’ annual Art Sled rally, and (as you can see) it didn’t fare well.

The Ultimate Sci-Fi Cat Bed

GWC listener Melissa in NY brought this to everyone’s attention in the GWC Forum last week: Urka, a contributor on the Craftster forum, created this awesome Millenium Falcon cat bed for her cat Chewbacca (pictured). And yes, Chewbacca comes from a long line of sci-fi savvy cats. According to Urka, his mother was named TK421 […]

Hooked On Lego Star Wars? Show Your Colors!

You may not have the Force, but you can have one of science fiction’s most famous starships — in your pants (pocket). Check out this sweet Lego Millenium Falcon — or “Fawlcon,” to those in the know — that’s key-chain sized. No, it’s not the 5,000-piece Ultimate Collector’s version with the four-page manual. But can […]
