Some guy in Queensland had one too many and decided he’d try his luck at stealing a life-size Yoda statue. Since that seemed too easy, he added a little Jedi-level challenge attempting to do this by setting the Jedi Master atop the handlebars of a bike (that he also stole). The man was arrested and Yoda was taken into custody. The best part is the official statement from the police which read:
“Yoda was later released from the Ayr watchhouse without any charges being laid but [a] caution for not wearing a helmet when riding a bike.”
The similarity to the bike scene in E.T. was also not lost on the police who described the similarities as “uncanny”.
Now I want to see a complete recreation of E.T. with a drunken Aussie playing Elliott.

Now you can travel in nerd style with these Star Wars and Marvel cup holder coaster sets. There is Darth Vader, Boba Fett, or a Stormtrooper in the clearly Imperial-biased Star Wars set or Captain America, Hulk, or Iron Man in the Marvel set. Each set includes two coasters for the character of your choice. They’re designed to fit cup holders that are 3.25″ or 2.6″ but can be trimmed to fit other cup holder sizes.

Apparently this crazy Dominos pizza with hot dog crust arrived like this. It must be some sort of sign.
Pancake artist extraordinaire Nathan Shields has been featured on That’s Nerdalicious for everything from Star Wars to fractals to Halloween pancakes. His latest creations are these Darth Vader and Elsa stencils that were made with a combination of cocoa powder and powdered sugar. You can even download his stencils and make these yourself.
See Elsa and the video after the break.

Darth Vader is just a big ol’ softy at heart. When he’s done slaying Jedi children and blowing up unsuspecting planets with moon-like space stations, he loves to bake chocolate chip cookies. Celebrate the kinder side of Darth Vader with this “You Can’t Resist The Force Of The Cookies” t-shirt, which is 100 percent cotton. Just remember, Darth Vader hates oatmeal cookies, so don’t bake those. If you do, he might think you’re part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor, and he’ll have you taken away. Trust me, you don’t want that.

It’s true that you never know what you’ll see at Dragon Con. Cosplayers can get resourceful and turn to materials you wouldn’t expect – like this whole Star Wars crew. They crafted armor, accessories, and even Han in Carbonite from beer cans. I wouldn’t be too surprised if all the beer from these cans was consumed during Dragon Con.

Some bakers are secretly Jedi Masters, and Compassionate Cake might have a higher ranking than even Yoda. Jessica, the woman behind the bakery, is responsible for these sugar cookies and she did an unbelievable job with the portraits. She painted miniature pieces of art featuring Princess Leia, Darth Maul, Jango Fett, and more. I especially love that even Leia’s hair is textured and realistic looking. These desserts really do look too amazing to eat.
