halloween r2-d2

I’ve seen some impressive pumpkin carvings and builds in my day, but Greg Aronowitz’s R2-D2 pumpkin just knocked me off my feet. Not only did he carve a pumpkin to look like the lovable droid and decorate it with candy, he built legs and rigged the pumpkin so that it has a spinning head and moves by remote control. Wow.

See this Halloween astromech come together and move in the video after the break.

sarlacc cake 1

The galaxy far, far away is full of risks and dangerous creatures. One such creature is the Sarlacc, but Kathleen of Yummy Crumble makes the Sarlacc Pit look scrumptious in her bundt cake recipe. The cake is a caramel flavor and is drizzled with homemade caramel sauce. Madeleines and buttercream teeth form the Sarlacc’s mouth. I’d willingly jump into this Pit!

See a close-up of the Sarlacc after the break.

star wars rebels cake

If being turned into a cake means a series has made it, then Star Wars Rebels is all set. The series has only been airing on Disney XD for about a month, but it already has fans who adore the characters and story (myself included). This cake was presumably made for one such fan by Fuget Pasta. The cake features the show’s logo and sculpted versions of the entire crew of the Ghost from Hera to Chopper. I just hope the baker didn’t add any icing that acts like Sabine’s explosive paint.

bike et

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.

dark side cookies shirt

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.
