You know how we are nuts about all things Star Wars. Well this guy plays the Star Wars theme song by himself and it’s not half bad. Any guy that can carry all these musical instruments around and play them at the same time deserves a post on the ‘Brick.
This guy has got to be the top busker in Sweden. His name is Anders Flanders and from what we can tell from his website, he’s enjoying life to it’s fullest. Rock on, Anders. Check out the video after the jump:
He will make you feel like you have your very own R2-D2 droid at home. He beeps when you power on/off, as you type and sounds just like the real thing. This little guy can control either your mobile device or your personal computer through a Bluetooth 3.0 connection.
The downside to this; the price. He will run you about $330 over at Run A Town. We think that is a bit of a stretch considering non-Star Wars projectors are about 1/2 of that.
In keeping up with our tradition of all things Star Wars here at SlipperyBrick, here is the ultimate addition to your kitchen counter top. This ceramic Death Star cookie jar is one of the cooler Star Wars kitchen accessories we have seen in awhile. All that is needed is a never ending supply of cookies and you will forever have the cool house on the block!

In 2008, we did an article about a Darth Vader toaster that was considered a must have for Star Wars junkies. Well, the toaster just got an upgrade. The new version is shaped just like the Dark Lord’s helmet and is the ultimate addition to your kitchen counter. The toaster burns the Star Wars logo on one side and the image of Darth Vader on the other.
This new toaster is coming out in July and can be pre-ordered from Bigbadtoystore.com to have proudly displayed on your kitchen counter for a mere $44.99.
This is yet another item you must add to your Star Wars collection. A lightsaber umbrella is perfect for the rainy days of spring. You can choose between three different sabers (or umbrella’s if you prefer to call them that). If you are feeling a little Jedi during the rain, you can choose either the Yoda or Obi-Wan. Yoda has a green shaft while Obi-Wan has a blue shaft, both have the Jedi insignia on the umbrella. If you not feeling the Jedi love that day, you can always choose the Darth Vader version the difference being it has a red shaft and the Imperial insignia on the umbrella. Which ever one you choose, you will certainly feel a little more powerful over the rain than those other guys walking around without an umbrella.
You know how we are crazy for all things Star Wars, right? Well, here is another example of creativity at its finest. Jen over at EPBOT got an incredible idea to create an AT-AT rocking horse from scratch. Why would one want to take on such a task as this when rocking horses are not the kids dream toy these days? Because she can!
The picture above is of the project in the beginning stages the finished project is shown below. As you can see from the finished result she put a lot of time and effort into this. It sounds like she will be posting the pattern for the rocking horse on her site soon. Also, if you are interested in this one, she is working with Florida Garrison of the 501st on having a silent auction at Megacon …
Most adults don’t really carry lunchboxes, but as lunchboxes get cooler, you will see more of them packing a lunch since we are all geeks at heart. This R2-D2 lunch kit is pretty cool. Adults and kids alike will want to carry this one around.
It’s only $14.99 and measures 5¾” W x 5½” D x 11¼” H and even has integrated sounds and LED light effects. That beats the Lunchbox I had as a kid. The noise that this one makes will likely get your kid in trouble.
Pancakes are awesome. When they are shaped like Star Wars characters they are even better. Now you can get two sets of molds, one with a bunch of vehicles, the other Star Wars heroes and villains. So now you can enjoy your pancakes on both the light and dark side of the force.
What could be better than dining on a Stormtrooper head or a Tie-Fighter? Not much, but then we are hardcore geeks. They range from $9.95 a set to $19.95. May the force be with your breakfast.
If you just bought a used Millenium Falcon, you probably need to do some repair work, but it didn’t come with the original manual so you have no idea what to do and no Wookie to help you. Fear not. The Millennium Falcon Owners Workshop Manual from Haynes can help.
Now you will be able to find out everything you need to know in order to repair your Millennium Falcon. It features detailed repair plans just like the Haynes manuals that are available for most of the cars on the road today.
Star Wars fans will love this Tatooine watch almost as much as they love the planet. Back in the old days, movies were more authentic and had more style since you had to build highly detailed props instead of using green screen. Scenes had depth and character. As you might remember Lucas traveled to Tunisia, where he built the Lars homestead, which still stands in the same spot all these years later.
But the forces of nature have not been kind. It needs help. That’s why some fans have banded together to save it, through Kickstarter. They have already reached their goal, but the more help they get, the better. If you pledge $77 you’ll receive an official Lars Expedition Wristwatch, which will contain sand from the location. That makes this a kind of Holy Star Wars relic.
You can’t always wear your highly detailed and expensive Star Wars costumes out in public, but these hoodies are a great option. This new line of hoodies is now available online for great prices. You can get the Stormtrooper, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett.
The fabric is a 60/40 cotton polyester and will survive many washings. These hoodies are the kind that can cover your whole face, with netting on the eye sockets so you can see. They cost just $49.99.
The Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming keyboard by Razer has some stylish looks as well as a Star Wars theme. It features a full-color highly sensitive multitouch LCD panel and ten adaptive tactile keys, giving you more room for easily accessible skills, hotkeys, and macros.
It also has an adjustable multi-color LED, 1000Hz Ultrapolling/1ms response time, a USB cable and gold backlit keys with slim key caps for faster actuation and shorter travel distance. Expect to drop $199.99 on it.
What better way to open a beer than by using the force. Or at least a lightsaber. Well, now you can do just that with this lightsaber bottle opener from Thinkgeek. It’s how all of the Jedis open their beverages.
This bottle opener is around 5.5 inches long and has been modeled on Luke’s Lightsaber from Return of the Jedi. It is also an officially licensed Star Wars product. That means that you are funding one of George Lucas’ many remixes of the films.
