KW Vauban has built an Ewok village from Return of the Jedi that is no less than three feet tall, which is pretty much as tall as Wicket and the rest of the Ewoks from the forest moon of Endor. Check it out! Read More »

With Star Wars Battlefront on the shelves as another way of fueling the hype train on track to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans have been doing their fair share of blasting both Rebels and Imperials in the video game world.
