Attention my fellow friends that suffer from Boba Fettishism! Your battle with this addition is about to get worse all in thanks to Sideshow Collectibles. Sideshow continues to design and produce killer Star Wars collectibles and there is no signs of them stopping. One of the most exciting news this year from Sideshow has to be their “Star Wars Mythos” line of statues. They have already released their mythos version of Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a Gamorrean Guard. It looks like they are about to take the line to another level with what I think may be the greatest Boba Fett statue ever released.

Sideshow Collectibles proudly unveils the next entry in our acclaimed Star Wars Mythos series, the best bounty hunter in the galaxy, Boba Fett. Armed for anything, Boba Fett carries the traditional blaster rifle along with some heavier firepower. The Boba Fett Mythos statue makes an outstanding addition to the growing Star Wars Mythos collection, another one of a kind look at a familiar Star Wars icon.

Looks like it’s time to turn in those Wookiee and Ewok pelts for credits because this beauty isn’t cheap. Sideshow is planning on releasing Mythos Boba Fett in May 2013 and you can pre-order yours now for a cool 325 credits at sideshowtoy.com.

Hit the jump and prepare to drool like a Rancor.

Don’t worry… she’ll hold together.

What are your dreams? What do you want to accomplish in life? Well, for Chris Lee (not connection to Count Dooku) the founder and project leader of “Full Scale Falcon” (@fullscalefalcon), his dream is to build a full size replica (interior and exterior) of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars.

This is a quest to build the ultimate Star Wars prop: a 1:1 scale ESB/ANH hybrid Millennium Falcon with complete, correctly scaled interior. Yes, I have completely lost my mind, just like most of my friends and family say. Except for my close Star Wars fan friends, who say “cool, can I help?”.

If you take a hour drive outside of Nashville, Tennessee you will come upon 88 acres of land where you will find Chris and his team working hard to accomplish something that has never been done before. Of course, just like Han Solo, Chris needs a team that can help him make his dreams a reality. He found his “Chewbacca” in Leah D’Andrea (set detailing, upholstery), Stinson Lentz (3D modeling, interior/exterior set consolidation), Greg Dietrich (cockpit console and quad gun construction), Brian Thompson (main hold navigation computer construction), and Roger Lee (general contracting). I’m pretty sure as time progress, this team of crafty and skill mercs will be growing in size. Chris and his team are tackling a project that may think can’t be done. Based on blueprints found in DK’s Star Wars Ultimate Collection of Blueprints, Chris has estimated that the ship will be:

Length: 114 feet
Beam (docking ring to docking ring): 81.485 feet
Height to top of body (not counting quad-laser turret): 24.878 feet
Height to top of dish: 30.889 feet
Clearance: ground to landing gear bay level: 7.779 feet
Clearance: ground to outside bottom of cockpit tube: 13.081 feet
  • Length: 114 feet
  • Beam (docking ring to docking ring): 81.485 feet
  • Height to top of body (not counting quad-laser turret): 24.878 feet
  • Height to top of dish: 30.889 feet
  • Clearance: ground to landing gear bay level: 7.779 feet
  • Clearance: ground to outside bottom of cockpit tube: 13.081 feet

This is an incredible feat if they can manage to finish it. Currently, Chris and his team have no real time table on when this project will be finished, but if safe to say that this will be a long investment of money, time, and effort by Team FSF. You can find more info on their site at fullscalefalcon.com and get up-to-date info on what they are working on and have accomplished. You can also help support the project by picking up a Team FSF t-shirt at their site! May the Force be with Team Full Scale Falcon!

You can always count on Black Milk Clothing (@blackmilktweets) to create some of the sexiest Star Wars threads out on the market. They are back with two new additions to their amazing Star Wars inspired clothing line. First up is a swimsuit designed by James Lillis featuring our favorite “scruffy nerf-herder”, Han Solo spread across the front and back of a white one piece. Black Milk and James Lillis’ second offering is the ultra popular R2-D2 swimsuit design made into polyester/lycra skintight dress. Both of these additions to the collection was beautiful and probably become an instant hit. Similar to most of Black Milk Clothing’s wares, these will cost you a pretty penny at about $122 (120 AUD). Regardless, they are probably worth every credit.

Remember back when The Phantom Menace hasn’t been released yet and then Lucasfilm and John Williams decided to be a giant cock tease by dropping “Dual of the Fates” on our sorry asses weeks before the movie release? Well, I do. I remember hearing that epic score for the first time on MTV and losing my shit from the sheer epicness of the music. Well, funny thing is, I always wondered what the hell the chorus was saying in the song. Well, after over a decade, we finally know. SLLLOOWWWW DOOOOWWWWNNNNN…. COLAAAAA!

Hit the jump and enjoy.

At a time when glasses have become such a cool fashion statement that people are willing to wear them without the lenses, Gizmine has up the cool factor on glasses by releasing a collection of Star Wars inspired specs.

If you’re looking for the edge of the George Lucas media empire, you’ve come to the wrong place. I, for one, have been bubbling with joy since stumbling across these beautifully crafted Star Wars glasses in 5 styles (Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Stormtrooper and Boba Fett). The subtle design features let you show your true colors, regardless of your setting. And when you pass another Star Wars fan on the street, you can nod in acknowledgement that you know whose side they’re on (or give them the stink-eye if they’re allegiance is to the dark side). May the force be with you….is written on the inside cover of the case for an extra touch.

They are simple, but elegant and a perfect addition to any Star Wars fan’s outfit. Each pair of glasses is unique in design and is fitting of the character that it represents. As you might have already figured out, the Stormtrooper glasses has to be my favorite. If you have to get one of these glasses on your face, it will cost you a cool 500 credits each and will be available at the end of October.

I hate it when Japan gets bad ass stuff and we don’t. Seiko Japan just dropped a line of luxurious Star Wars inspired wrist watches that will wet any Star Wars fan’s panties. These brilliant timepieces are limited edition (ranging from 500-1500 pieces) and will cost you around $1,800.00 (oh shit…). Each of these beautiful wristwatches are unique to each character such as R2-D2 Seiko Brightz watch that features a 300DPI screen that plays clips from the films and the Darth Vader watch comes “blinged” out with some little diamonds. My favorite has to be the Stormtrooper Seiko watch. Who doesn’t love a pearl white dial with a sexy Imperial logo embedded in it? Unfortunately, it’s going to be hard to pull 1,800 bucks out of my wallet without hurting. If you can afford to spoiled yourself with such beautiful watches, you can find them on Amazon.co.jp.

Crissy Baker and the ladies of Nerd Alert Designs put together an amazing collection of one-of-a-kind handmade Star Wars themed dresses and costumes for women.

My favorites of Nerd Alert Designs’ collection has to be the “day to night” dresses.
