Fellow Star Wars nerds, feast your eyes upon the AT-AT Walker Boombox.  I have no idea if this thing has an input for an MP3 player, but does it really matter!??!

The H-Wing Carfighter. Pure coolness.

January 5, 2009

A very creative, and devoted, Star Wars fan modified his Honda Del Sol to look like an A-Wing fighter from Return of the Jedi.  According to his webpage, he bought the Honda specifically for the project, at a cost of $7,000 and has only put in about $1,000 in modifications.  Very nice work.

Check out the specs. and history of the design at the official website of the H-Wing Carfighter

Jedi Gym

July 8, 2008

Former swordplay trainer to the stars and Star Wars fanatic Jeremy Flynn recently opened “Jedi Gym”, a fitness center in Torrance, CA where members channel characters from the Star Wars film series to work out, meditate, and improve their lives.
“Star Wars is all about the Hero’s Journey, and so is working out,” says Flynn, ” you leave home, battle your demons, and hopefully return home stronger.”

Flynn is frustrated with his students’ lack of commitment and focus, but when a 7-foot man in an incredibly authentic Darth Vader suit arrives at the gym, Flynn thinks he’s found his dream student.

Instead, Flynn and his students learn, first hand, about how powerful the Dark Side can be…
