UK based illustrator Konrad Kirpluk that Star Wars needed more of one thing: cuteness. Working on that, Kirpluk created nine illustrations of cute Star Wars characters. The Stormtrooper looks like a baby in a diaper, though with the action that we have seen from them, this might very well be the true story underneath the armor.
Darth Heisenberg print is a mashup of the drug lord meeting the sith lord. We expect the results to be impressive, considering enemies will have to go up against the force and their meth habit. Costs $45.
AT-SP Walker, as its name suggests, takes inspiration from the AT-ST, gives it a good old Steampunk twist and has it ready to spread the light. All joints on the lamp are functional, and it can do a little bit of swaying, so we’re guessing it could double up as a very expensive toy too, apart from being a very expensive lamp. The lamp runs on 12V DC through a regular power jack socket. Costs $1250.
A team of German Star Wars fans at Project X1 Props have created a very detailed, and very impressive 1:2 scale replica of Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter. Set for unveiling at the Star Wars – Celebration Europe, the fighter cost $20,000 to build and used up very wisely spent 1000 man hours.
A new subreddit has been born with funny commentary on events of Star Wars and Game of Thrones. Turns out, both of them have quite a few things in common, but they can’t help trying to top each other.
Years of research, finding just the right parts and having Adam Savage to put them all together. That is both super cool and super geeky. Norman Chan and people at TheRPF forum spent about two years researching and crafting out details of Han Solo’s DL-44 Blaster from Star Wars Episode IV. When a group of prop and replica enthusiasts get together, you don’t just get something that looks like the blaster, you get a very faithful recreation of the one Solo carried around.

Being an elite soldier of the galactic empire is a tough job. Stormtroopers get to be mowed down by a handful of people, run the risk of being force choked by Darth Vader, and do all other empire stuff while maintaining a really shitty aim. Nobody said it was going to be an easy job, and we believe the Stormtroopers are fond of their armor and their (white and black) colors, those that they wear most of their lives.
