FINALLY! Thanks to Sideshow Collectibles and the 30th anniversary of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, we finally get a Darth Vader action figure worthy of the Sith Lord!
Sideshow celebrates the 30th anniversary of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi with the new Darth Vader Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure. Recreate every memorable scene with this essential Vader figure, featuring a fully articulated body, faithfully reproduced costume, and detailed helmet, mask, and portrait options. To complete your display, we’ve included an impressive Imperial-themed light up figure stand and a meditation chamber stand for Vader’s helmet and mask.
Sideshow’s Deluxe Darth Vader will set you back about $250 and will be out early 2014. This is truly one amazing collectible and I can’t wait to get my hands on one (or two)!

Things are pretty bleak in the world these days and I don’t think these hideously stupid “sexy” Star Wars costumes are helping. Costume Craze just put out a collection of new Star Wars “sexy” costumes for the upcoming Halloween season and from the look of these, the designer that put these together must have just downed a gallon of tequila before going to work. These Star Wars inspired costumes are pretty much a body suit with a skirt and an ugly ass hat. However, the “sexy” Stormtrooper costume isn’t all that bad. Regardless of what I may think of these costumes, I’m pretty sure these are going to hit big in October and we probably will be seeing these costumes roaming around our favorite comic conventions. Each costume will run you about $70 (ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!) and will be available sometime at the end of Summer. I’m pretty sure I will lose faith in humanity around that time as well.
Hit the jump and check out the collection. Sigh…
Apparently, Darth Vader failed to watch the 2012 Republican Convention where Clint Eastwood pretty much spoke to an empty chair for about ten minutes. Who are you talking to Lord Vader?
Hit the jump, enjoy the video, and have a great weekend.
The talented folks at Black Milk Clothing is at it again by taking Star Wars and adding a whole lot of sex appeal to it. Black Milk just released their newest Star Wars inspired dresses, leggings, and swimsuits. The classic R2-D2 dress and swimsuit got an upgrade and iconic characters such as Boba Fett and Darth Vader finally got some love from Black Milk. In addition to the merc and the Sith Lord, Black Milk also dazzled up a cool polyester/LYCRA skin tight dress with the almighty Death Star. Hopefully, the Death Star dress doesn’t have any weak point as this might lead to some awkward clothing malfunctions. Considering how cool Black Milk Clothing’s Star Wars line is, I have to say that I have mixed feelings about the Ewok dress. What is it about that Ewok dress that I want to shoot it with a blaster regardless if there is a cute girl wearing it. Oh well.

I am your BAKER…
It’s “Star Wars Day” and you are probably getting ready to make some tasty Star Wars treats today. There are plenty of cool Star Wars kitchware out there, but I have to say this Dark Side apron has to one of the coolest things I have ever seen! This awesome homemade apron was made by Amanda Linton for the Bear and Bird Gallery’s “Stitch Wars” exhibition in Lauderhill, Florida. Too bad this apron look weird on me while I’m grillin’ up some Wampa rib-eyes. Sadly, this apron is more of an exhibit piece than for everyday use so it’s not available for sale. Somebody get this most impressive apron licensed and made!
I can’t decide whether I hate or love this video. Can something be so fucking bad that it becomes good? Couple weeks ago, we proved that ‘Star Wars Kinect’ is the only thing in the universe that can make Han Solo look like a little bitch. Well, this time, it’s the Galactic Empire’s turn to show us what they do on the dance floor. What’s really weird is that I can’t help but get into this video. What is it about a Stormtrooper doing the moonwalk and Darth Vader dusting off his shoulder (or “Not a scratch” as they call it) that makes it Star Wars Kinect forgivable unlike the “Ridin’ Han Solo” video. Maybe it’s because the Dark Side makes everything look fucking cool. Also, why is “The Yoda” a move where you push your hands down to your crotch?
Hit the jump, check out the video, and you decide!.
