lego Millennium Falcon Fan Build 1

For Star Wars fans and Lego collectors, one of the holy grail pieces is the 5,195 piece Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon. Originally priced at about $500, it now can sell for almost 10 times that because of its rarity, and the set’s incredible detail. It’s one of the biggest and most beautiful Lego sets in history.

Yet it pales in comparison to this latest fan creation.

A team of Lego builders called Titans Creations have created a 10,000 piece Millennium Falcon that’s physically 40% bigger than the official set and features multiple scenes from the movie within. Check out the amazing custom Lego Millennium Falcon below. Read More »

Star Wars Rebels Ezra lightsaber

Just when everyone was busy talking or bitching about Kylo Ren’s lightsaber in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Star Wars Rebels team jumped on board with a strange design of their own. They introduced Ezra’s lightsaber, which looks like a staple gun and combines a blaster with a lightsaber. Because it wasn’t in theaters, this unique new Star Wars weapon didn’t creator the fervor of its cross-guarded counterpart, but it was still a radical departure from what Star Wars fans expect from the series’ elegant weapons.

At Star Wars Celebration, we spoke with Rebels producer Dave Filoni and since he wasn’t giving up many details on season 2, we asked about Ezra’s saber. Where did the idea come from? How was it designed? What was the purpose and was it hard getting it approved by the Lucasfilm Story Group? Read everything Filoni had to say about the Ezra lightsaber below. Read More »

Speeder Bike chase

No one has ever watched Return of the Jedi and not wanted to ride a speeder bike through the forest of Endor. The Speeder Bike chase is simply one of the coolest scenes in any of the movies, combining drama, character and pulse pounding action. But even today, over thirty years later, it’s impossible to experience. We can drive cars, motorcycles, even play video games that feel very close, but nothing quite duplicates the likely thrill of riding that bike.

And while we still can’t hop on that bike ourselves, there’s now a way to at least control something that fast and maneuverable. It’s a homemade Speeder Bike Quadcopter. Check it out below. Read More »

Star Wars Battle Pod Review

Last night, I flew the Millennium Falcon. And an X-Wing. And a Snowspeeder. And a Speeder Bike. And even Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter. You can play as all of those ships too in the brand new arcade game, Star Wars Battle Pod, which is currently in Arcades nationwide.

Battle Pod is basically just that. It’s a sit down flying/shooting game with a screen that covers your entire plane of vision, over 180 degrees, making it feel like you are inside your favorite Star Wars ship. There are then five different missions you can play. Fly an X-Wing at the battle of Yavin and try to destroy the Death Star. Fly a Snowspeeder on Hoth, protecting the Rebel transports. Man a Speeder Bike on Endor to destroy the shield generator. Take the Millennium Falcon into the second Death Star. Or, in the game’s most challenging and exciting battle, play as Darth Vader against the Rebels immediately after the destruction of the first Death Star.

Below, read our Star Wars Battle Pod review and see some official videos and photos. Read More »

Animatronic Iron Man

The reason people relate to Tony Stark so much is he’s just a regular guy. A “Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist” to sure, but a normal guy nonetheless. He made Iron Man with his bare hands and that’s something we can relate to. Some, more than others.

Online user named Honus67, for example. He made an animatronic Iron Man suit that works almost exactly like the real thing. It just can’t fly, stop bullets or shoot missiles. But the moving helmet, pop up weapons and all that? Totally works. Read More »
