Princess Leia Slave Outfit action figure outrage.

Ah, nobody quite does confected outrage like Fox news. In this little gem of overacting, the existence of Slave Leia drives an American parent into apoplexies of extreme annoyance. Ah, well, just wait until the next Star Wars movie when they release the Slave Leia MILF action figure. Hasbro, not the first firm that jumps […]

Let’s choke San Diego Comic Con! Shocking Sith attack.

Darth Vader cosplayer Dupree Jones goes, frankly, Force Choke nuts at San Diego Comic Con 2015. Well, all those fans enjoying the con at the USA while we languish in London, experiencing Tube strikes and other nonsense. They kind of deserve it, don’t they?

That deaf, dumb and blind droid sure plays a mean pinball.

If you’ve got a spare $10k to toss away and you’re a hedge fund billionaire or Russian mafia oligarch, then might we suggest you could do a lot worse than blowing your wad on this amazing R2-D2-themed home-crafted Star Wars Pinball machine.
