Chewbacca Bath Robe

Another day, another awesome Star Wars item.  Today's offering is a hooded, 100% polyester robe that suspiciously resembles everyone's favorite Wookie.  Although I'm fairly sure it's not a licensed LucasFilms (Disney?) product, it looks pretty accurate, complete with Chewie's bandolier stitched across the chest (front AND back) and large pocket to mimic Chewie's pouch.  A [...]

Fold the paper, you will.

star-wars-origami

If you like origami - or just Star Wars - you'll enjoy folding your own Yoda or Millennium Falcon.  The Star Wars Origami kit is a bit of a cheat, because it uses special paper printed with the details.  It comes with a book with complete instructions for folding the papers to create 36 different [...]
