Lightsabers make everything better!

Honestly, is there anything cooler than a lightsaber?  Who has ever seen a star wars thing and not wanted one?  And then when you put them into a different context they get even better!  Dammit I want a real one!  There are plenty of examples on youtube of lightsaber mashups but these are two of the best.


Life is good!

 

Things like this make me happy to be alive.  Star Wars is awesome.  Chicks with tattoos are awesome.  Chicks with tattoos wearing R2D2 bathing suits are amazing!  Really, what more do you want?  Full res version hosted on geekologie here.

At the Celebration V gathering in Florida, a new scene was premiered from Return of the Jedi.  This scene will be included on the BluRay release of the Star Wars saga.  That’s right, all six Star Wars films on Blu in one box.  Three guesses as to one of the most popular gifts of the 2011 holiday season.

Adidas has been doing a line of Star Wars inspired clothing.  Most of it has been of the modern awful hipster bullshit variety.  This however, is pretty sweet.

Awww, I want this.

I don’t spend a lot of time on Etsy but perhaps I should.  Seen here is an R2D2 knit hat from Etsy seller craftandcrochet.  This is super cool and extra geeky.  It’s only $22.50 and will be made in 2-3 days.  At the price, you kind of have to get one.  Hit the link for the Etsy page and support.
