Chewbacca and Ewoks rock out to “Welcome To The Jungle”

I love me some Wookies and Ewoks and rock. Watch the whole thing for the Jawa drum line at the end. Nice. Via Geeks Are Sexy (and they are, I might add. ;-) )

Fake Star Wars lightsaber popsicle tray should be made for real

Think Geek lightsaber popsicle tray for April Fool's 2011Think Geek are masters of creating some of the most epic geeky gadgets on the face of the planet…and that includes their April Fools’ fakey every year.

Some of their April Fools’ products have been so incredible that they’ve actually gone on to become real products…a la the taun taun sleeping bag.

WIRED is calling for this lightsaber popsicle tray to become a real product too…and I’m glad to throw my lot in with them.

This fake product consists of four Lightsaber hilts which — when frozen in juice — become four short-bladed Lightsabers. Two hilts are Luke’s, two Darth Vader’s. There is even an imaginary LED inside each handle which beams its light into the popsicle and makes it glow.

Or will it? The curious thing about ThinkGeek’s April Fool gags is that they create such a demand that the company has to go ahead and make them anyway, making them less pranks and more a kind of clever market research. Fingers crossed that ThinkGeek can get these things licensed and ready in time for Summer, and keeps the price to the currently hypothetical $35.

I’d pay $35 for that awesomeness. Would you?

[VIDEO] Teenage Mutant Ninja JEDI Bear

Remember that awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Bear from the Hiroshima Zoo? Some creative folks have now gone and Jedified it…and you know what a huge Star Wars fan I am.

Check it out:

After watching those videos, one thing appears to be clear….bears must have some sort of molecular anomaly hidden within their DNA that renders them impervious to the business end of lightsabers. Perhaps an abnormally high midi-chlorian count?
