One Man Star Wars Band

Posted in Star Wars by Tam Yue on May 28th, 2014

Anders FlanderzYou 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:

R2-D2 Virtual Keyboard

Posted in Star Wars by Tam Yue on May 19th, 2014

R2 D2 Virtual KeyboardYet another must have for the Star Wars collector. Virtual keyboards have been around in some form for years, but This R2-D2 virtual keyboard projector makes all others look pretty boring.

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.

Darth Vader toasterIn 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.

Lightsaber Umbrella’s

Posted in Star Wars by Tam Yue on March 10th, 2014

Lightsaber umbrellaThis 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.

AT-AT Rocking Horse

Posted in Star Wars by Tam Yue on March 6th, 2014

AT-AT Rocking Horse  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 …

R2-D2 Lunch Kit

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2011

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.

Make Star Wars Pancakes

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2011

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.

Star Wars Millennium Falcon Haynes Manual

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2011

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.

Tatooine Sand Wristwatch

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2011

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.

Star Wars Hoodies Look Great

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on June 19th, 2011

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.

Star Wars Lightsaber Bottle Opener

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on June 2nd, 2011

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.
