It’s possible Han Solo’s blaster could set a new Star Wars record, but it’s a high bar to beat. The original R2D2 droid sold in 2017 for $2.75m; more recently, an original X-Wing prop went for $2.3m.
The detail on the Millennium Falcon is incredible. In fact, it feels almost inappropriately detailed for the stylised Pop concept until the Han Solo model catches your eye and holds your attention.
This is it. The second official Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer shows us new characters, old landscapes… and some of our favourites from the originals. There’s history and change all wrapped into a single Force bundle! There’s R2-D2 and BB8 as well; I wonder if they meet? What do you make of it?
Another set of Andy Stattmiller’s clever nesting dolls. Art and function strike again and we have the Jabba the Hutt rescue scene from Return of the Jedi. From top to bottom we’ve abba the Hutt, Boba Fett, Gamorrean Guard, Bib Fortuna, Max Rebo, EV-9D9, and Salacious B. Crumb for the villains and for the good […]
Etsy studio Dingbat Press has a number of lovely geeky cards. Whether you’re looking for a Father’s Day card or a Birthday card it’ll be worth a peak. It might be too late to do a Valentine’s Day card this year… but it’s still worth checking out Han and Leia.
Sometimes a single image can sum up a whole, complex, idea. In this case Keh Choon has an illustration of Han Solo and Chewbacca that says Tim Burton. Will we see Tim Burton produce any of the new Star Wars movies? I doubt it… but you never know.
Black Milk shot to geek fame with creations like this R2-D2 swimsuit, Pac-man swimsuit and even Gameboy swimsuit. They’ve been carefully expanding their range ever since. Their Star Wars collection has had an update. Not only is there an art nouveau style Princess Leia dress but we’ve Han in Carbonite, Han and Chewie leggings, Stormtrooper […]
Travis Stevens has a history of creating Star Wars inspired custom guitars. For example, he made this Millennium Falcon guitar. With this guitar, though, we get slightly closer to our Star Wars heroes. We have Han Solo, trapped in carbonite, as a guitar. If you want to make any “watch where you put your fingers” […]
R-9 make functional sci-fi art. They say they’re inspired by Hollywood’s greatest special effects masters but I imagine some people find R-9’s designs pretty inspirational. The gallery is impressive and I rather like the Millennium Falcon table. It has a more homely feel than Han Solo’s frozen face staring out at you.
I wasn’t sure whether I’d let this video play out after the first few seconds – but I’m glad I did. The talent here is MC Chris. Well, okay, the talent is Harrison Ford as Han Solo and MC Chris has put togther a talented tribute. Give it a play. What do you think? Want […]
