More Star Wars Goodies!

Jedi Master Nads sent over these various Star Wars themed links and products the other day. Some very cool stuff!

Star Wars Ep1 Mimobots

Mimoco, makers of the MIMOBOT collection of designer USB flash drives, is celebrating the tenth anniversary of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace with an all-new series of themed MIMOBOT characters, beginning with the iconic, tattooed face of the deadly Sith apprentice, Darth Maul.

Episode I’s fan favorite Sith villain is scheduled to be released on June 10th at and will be accompanied by additional Star Wars characters that will be revealed on that date as well. Darth Maul is the thirteenth character in the Star Wars MIMOBOT collection of flash drives, joining current Series 3 characters such as evil Darth Sidious, the Emperor’s Royal Guard, adorable Wicket the Ewok, and the golden protocol droid C-3PO.

Stay tuned for more exciting Star Wars MIMOBOT transmissions over the next couple weeks to see what develops in Series 4. Mimoco’s original limited edition Star Wars MIMOBOT Series was released in 2006 with most characters long since sold out. The MIMOBOT line, available in 1GB to 8GB capacities, is known for exclusive preloaded digital extras that include Star Wars-themed icons, avatars, screensavers, wallpapers, and the mimoByte™ Sound Software that plays authentic Star Wars audio clips when MIMOBOT is inserted or ejected from one’s computer.

Acme Archives Website

If you haven't had the pleasure of ever coming across Acme Archive's products, either in person at an event, or online, then now's your chance. Visit this LINK to view some great Star Wars themed Giclee and canvas pictures. I actually own the 'Light of the Jedi' Clone Wars Giclee and the Indy 'Escaping the Tomb' animated versions and they are truly beautiful pieces. If you're a fan of Star Wars, Indy, Disney, Halo or a bunch of other licenses then you'll want to take a gander at the site.

Crazy Guy Made Huge Minifig Scale Lego Corellian Corvette!

Craig Steven a British Lego artist has made an awesome scale model of the Tantive IV, the Corellian Corvette Blockade Runner made famous in the opening scene from Star Wars EpIV - A New Hope. Craig has built numerous sculptures out of Lego based on famous films and people and the 12 foot Tantive IV is the latest in a long line of SW themed vehicles. You can visit his site HERE and look at his various creations (down the right hand side of the site). Some pretty cool stuff and a great fan talent.

Star Wars Episode 1 Posters

As this year marks the 10 year anniversary of Phantom Menace have celebrated in numerous ways. Two links here show not only the top 1o Phantom Menace posters but also the variations of the famous international one-sheet poster in many different languages. Worth a look if you're a die-hard fan or simply love the posters more than the movie itself (I know that's true for some!). Click on the links below to view the relevant pages.

Clone Wars Play Huts For Kids (And The Parents Of Course!)

When I was a kid I used to love making a fort or base out of various scatter cushions and a foldaway mattress thingy in our family living room. I used to pretend it was my impenetrable fortress and would read comics, play my Gameboy or even watch T.V. in there. I think all kids, mainly boys, do that at some point but it always better when there's actually something specifically made for that kind of thing. Especially when they're Star Wars themed aswell! In the US Amazon, Toys R US and Wal-Mart are all selling these 4 ultra funky Clone Wars Playhuts. All are pictured below this paragraph but you can also find a link showing the whole set on HERE too. I want one! (for the kids of course).

Death Star Blows Up Enterprise

It's amazing what fans can do these days with a video editing programme and some basic special effects. This cool little video shows the age old battle of the Trekkers and the Star Wars fans being finally won when the Death Star takes out the USS Enterprise. Enjoy it!

Star Wars Lucha Libre Masks

Yet another link from finds some Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling) masks created by artist Randy Martinez that you can print out for the kids to wear. And of course they're based on Star Wars characters! Visit this LINK for the images or click the pic below and enlarge.

Femtroopers And Sci-Fi Themed Babes

Do you have a thing for women dressed as Sci-fi charaters? Do Femtroopers ignite your lightsaber? Well the two links below will be just the thing you're looking for. Take a gander at some of the various pics that show geeky dream girls in costumes you'll like! Now I know why TK421 isn't at his post... He's reading Femtrooper monthly in the Deathstar toilets! ;P


7 Sexy Sci-fi Costumes Uses The Force

A very cool site Jedi Master Nads came across not only has a little page dedicated to various Darth Vader themed pics found HERE but also has some funny videos and images that are worth the visit when you're bored. Find the main site HERE and enjoy!
(Oh and Jedi Master Nads would like me to direct your attention to this link HERE for the babes page in particular!)

Japanese Star Wars 'Pachinko' Machines

Over in Japan there is a countrywide gaming/ gambling phenomenon called 'Pachinko'. Pachinko are basically upright pinball slot-machines and there are entire casino's dedicated to them. Recently Sankyo have made some new Star Wars themed machines which look pretty cool and you can read all about them via this LINK over at
I love the decals on these, the anime style Star Wars characters are fantastic!

Happy Birthday Star Wars!

Little did I know that my eldest daughter shared her birthday with the first ever cinema release of Star Wars Ep IV 32 years ago yesterday (the 25th of May). She's a 6 year old who loves SW to death so it's only fitting I suppose! Happy 32nd Birthday Star Wars!

Vader's Quest - Fan Made Star Wars Story With Action Figures!

Over at a fan with far too much time on his hands has utilised Star Wars action figures and vehicles, some photoshop skills and a fair bit of ingenuity to put together an ongoing visual story set in the SW universe. Regardless of how professional or not the whole thing looks you have to admire someone who goes to this much trouble to entertain the forum members. Yakface itself is a huge site with loads of links to everything SW related but this story got Jedi Master Nad's attention in particular. Visit this LINK to read the latest chapter of this story.

Well, that was a long post! Hope you Star Wars fans out there find something you like!

Goodbye for now and may the Force be with you! ;P
