Samurai Stormtrooper

Incredibly cool for all fans of samurai and Star Wars.

Samurai (侍?) were the military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan.

In Japanese, they are usually referred to as bushi (武士) or buke (武家). According to translator William Scott Wilson: "In Chinese, the character 侍 was originally a verb meaning "to wait upon" or "accompany persons" in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, saburau. In both countries the terms were nominalized to mean "those who serve in close attendance to the nobility", the pronunciation in Japanese changing to saburai. According to Wilson, an early reference to the word "samurai" appears in the Kokin Wakashū (905–914), the first imperial anthology of poems, completed in the first part of the 10th century.

By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi, and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai were usually associated with a clan and their lord, and were trained as officers in military tactics and grand strategy. While the samurai numbered less than 10% of then Japan's population, their teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern Japanese martial arts.

An Adorable Crocheted Version of Star Wars’ AT-AT Walker

This might be the most adorable AT-AT walker I’ve ever seen, and thanks to Etsy user Krawka, you can crochet one of your own at home, given that you know how to crochet, of course.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/463377288/at-at-walker-crochet-pattern-by-krawka

Crochet walker, when finished, is 26 cm tall (10.2 inches), 28 cm long (11 inches). He is quite large and therefore we will have a lot of parts to make, please be patient and don’t give up because the end result is totally worth it… oh (I almost forgot) May the force be with you!!

Be the Coolest Parent: Make a Star Wars Rocker

A fan of the Star Wars series, Tez Gelmer wanted to celebrate his daughter’s first birthday in style. And I think he achieved just that by making this one of a kind baby rocker that is shaped like a rocking speeder bike!

And he doesn’t stop there. He actually gives you full instructions on how to make it, along with this great video!

Rocking Speeder Bike

The 74-Z Speeder Bike is best known for its appearance in the 1983 movie, Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. In which Imperial Scout Troopers, on the forest moon of Endor, engage in a vicious chase with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa after the Rebels commandeered the speeder bikes to pursue their foes.

ROGUE ONE

Well, I've been traveling for the last ten days and haven't seen this yet, but somehow, Star Wars was omnipresent the entire trip.

First night with mom, boom, The Force Awakens was on cable. She hadn't seen it, so we watched that together, and I tried my best to catch her up. It was a fun night, watching her get into the movie! Before that, I think we saw some Star Wars stuff when I stayed with +Andrew Coffman and his family for a few days, but my mind is mush now that I'm home. If we did, it was cool cause Drew and his family are cool!

Next I was in Reno, and on that day it was opening day for Rogue One so I didn't see my nephew. He went to see the movie with 11 of his buddies and later he raved constantly how "amazing, cool, excellent" it was. Loved it!

That same night, I caught showings of some of the original movies on TNT in my room (even the bad ones (cough). Star Wars was everywhere! Next night, more of the same and later, I watched my nephew playing some sort of really cool first shooter Star Wars Xbox thing at my brother's house. Finally, the very next day, while waiting to catch a bus back to Sacramento - there was Star Wars AGAIN on the TV in the terminal. Yup, all three of us watched ESB for a while, and then they left.

It was AMAZING how many times the world of Star Wars crossed my path over my ten day trip back West...

Star Wars Visual Comparison: Manhattan vs. a Super Star Destroyer

A Visual Size Comparison of a ‘Star Wars’ Super Star Destroyer and Manhattan. So our minds can wrap around the immensity in front of us..._

I think it is useful to have these "size comparisons" so we don't lose track of galactic threats that are eminent to the USA. Like those massive round ships that hovered over cities; not blocks, but cities, in Independence Day. We need to understand that that the Empire is a threat to our lives, liberty, and property if we blindly ignore their presence in our future. Be vigilant, and understand that the Resistance is there to preserve our way of life...

Chill Darth

Even Darth gets a cigarette break now and then, and what better way to relax on those breaks than with some music...

Star Wars Porch Light Covers: Even The Dark Side Could Use Some Lighting...

As is usually the case when I stumble on cool Star Wars decorative items, this one is out-of-stock, with no ETA. But how awesome would it be to have this on your front porch!

◘ Choose Darth Vader or Stormtrooper
◘ You custom cut it to fit your light fixture
◘ For use with 60 watt bulb maximum

Heads of Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper can give your Halloween decorations a lovely (and slightly disturbing if you think of them as severed heads) glow. Use these to display your allegiance to the Empire or treat them like heads on spikes and be the Rebel that you secretly are. We're not particular.

These Star Wars Porch Light Covers make even the Dark Side of any given porch light up with Star Wars joy. Choose Darth Vader or Stormtrooper. These are for use with a 60 watt bulb max. The porch light cover SHOULD NOT TOUCH the light bulb. Having set a dollhouse aflame once by letting a bulb touch plastic, we want to stress that bit. Halloween is much less festive when your house is on fire. Please be safe. We like you. (By the way, you could have these up all-year-round is you're particularly a cool SW fan. Just sayin')

Star Wars Night Lights. Can You Say Badass?

Sometimes, when I'm surfing the Nets, I'll stumble on things that are so cool, especially to a die-hard Star Wars geek like myself. I see things like this and want them instantly. Then I have to plan in my mind exactly where I'd put them. That always makes my day! :-)

Colorful Star Wars Night Lights: Set this night light to one of seven colors and gradually cycle through the whole rainbow. LED lights projected through a sheet of transparent plastic gives this small light a striking 3D effect.
