Spider-Man faces Darth Maul (again) in ‘Super Power Beat Down’


If you didn’t quite buy the result of their original battle, “Super Power Beat Down” is back with an alternate ending to the showdown between Spider-Man and Darth Maul.

This time, it’s not only the wall-crawler who has the benefit of the alien symbiote: Here, Darth Sidious’ apprentice dips his hand into that inky pool, resulting in a whole lotta horns, and a whole lotta … tongue.

These Jedi Disney princesses are a Force to be reckoned with


Kylo Ren may have caused a stir with his distinctive, if perhaps impractical, crossguard lightsaber, but that’s nothing compared to Belle’s three-pronged candelabra blades. Or is that called a Lumière-saber?

Cosplayer Elizabeth Rage wields her elegant weapon for a more civilized age alongside Amber Arden as Sith Snow and Reagan Kathryn as Reypunzel in these photos of their terrific Disney/Star Wars mashup cosplay.

You’ll give this life-size BB-8 floor lamp a thumbs up


That little BB-8 desktop lamp might be perfect for a nightstand or the dejarik table of the Millennium Falcon, but it may not be the best choice for illuminating large spaces. That’s where the BB-8 life-size floor lamp comes in.

Standing 26 inches tall, the officially licensed Star Wars: The Force Awakens lamp features three lighting modes (cold white, amber and warm white), and turns on and off with a simple tap to the head.

‘LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ leaks


Updated (6: 14 a.m.): Warner Bros. Interactive and Lucasfilm have now officially announced LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The original story continues below.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is heading our way in June, according to an apparently inadvertent listing on and a leaked trailer (below).

The news obviously shouldn’t come as a surprise. However, neither Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment nor developer TT Games had revealed the project was in the works. Expect official world later this morning, as Warner Bros. had tipped off media outlets that it would make a “massive announcement” today.

Join the Resistance with your very own Finn jacket from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’


If you’re jealous Finn got to keep Poe Dameron’s jacket and you didn’t, now’s your chance to change that.

Film Jackets is selling a replica of the now-iconic jacket from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Though Poe was originally the owner of the jacket, he eventually gave it to Finn in thanks for saving BB-8’s life and completing his mission; the jacket has since become associated with Finn, who wore it for most of the film.

The replica is made from 100% genuine leather, with two pockets and viscose lining stitched in to absorb moisture. It currently retails for $179, on sale from $269.

Violinist Jeffrey Ding He has mastered the art of handling a lightsaber. Instead of using his saber to defend the Republic from the rising sect of the evil Sith Lords, he uses it to play beautiful music. Maybe there’s a place for him in the Cantina Band or at Maz Kanata’s new place?

Electronic Arts announced Thursday that it has already shipped more than 13 million copies of Star Wars Battlefront since the game’s launch in mid-November, exceeding expectations.

The publisher initially projected 9 million to 10 million copies, but later raised its forecast to 13 million copies by March. Note that those are games shipped to retailers, not necessarily purchased by consumers, but it’s an impressive feat nonetheless.

Artist crafts incredible Millennium Falcon, ‘Macross’ mecha from wood


Martin Creaney is truly a master of his craft. Maybe even a Jedi master.

The woodworker has created a remarkably detailed replica of the Millennium Falcon using 3,000 individually cut pieces of wood. Heck, I’m not sure  “remarkably detailed” actually does the work justice; see for yourself in the photos and videos below.

This MIllennium Falcon shed has a few surprises left in her


It’s definitely not going to outrun an Imperial Star Destroyer or make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, but this Millennium Falcon-inspired potting shed has definitely got it where it counts.

The “Space Shed,” as it’s called, was recently introduced by the U.K. company Waltons, which donated one of the buildings to Stonebridge City Farm in Nottingham, England. While the urban farm intends to use its structure as a potting shed for children — “We are so excited about it, we’re expecting it to take off at any moment,” said manager Marie Rogers — you can probably use it for just about anything.

This ‘Star Wars’ toilet prank embraces the Dark Side … of the flush


Of the many sights you might expect to see when you step out of — or, worse, into — a portable toilet, a corridor crammed with Stormtroopers and Darth Vader probably isn’t among them. However, judging from this video, it apparently occurs in Brazil with some regularity.

It’s, of course, a clever hidden-camera prank on the same SBT network television show that last year sent the Sith Lord and his troops chasing after unsuspecting pedestrians. In this version, once someone enters the portable toilet, the corridor set is quickly wheeled up and populated with Imperial forces so that when they exit, they’re met with a surprise (complete with fog effect).

This Darth Vader bouquet may choke up that special someone


With Valentines Day rapidly approaching, it’s important to remember: Nothing says “I love you” like a plush symbol of the Galactic Empire’s might.
