Eating sushi is as much an art as making the Japanese delicacy. When it comes to enhancing the flavor of sashimi or nigiri you’re not supposed to just drown your sushi in soy sauce. A light dip is all you need, and these wonderful Star Wars soy sauce dishes will make it easy to know when you’ve portioned out the…
Ladies and gentlemen, our global nightmare is over. After months—nearly five of them in fact—of waiting, Marvel’s one-shot comic, revealing just why C-3PO has a red arm for most of The Force Awakens, is finally here. As bizarre as it may sound at first, the final product isn’t half bad.
If you lack the patience for assembling something as simple as a jigsaw puzzle, you’ll want to move along. Metal Earth’s intricate models, which assemble from flat, pre-cut sheets of metal, could frustrate even a brain surgeon. Which is unfortunate, because these new color models are so very tempting.
Yesterday we mistakingly declared that a bouquet of tiny dinosaurs was the best Valentine’s Day gift—we were wrong. If you really want someone to know you love them, or you’re sorry, or you’re trying to rule the galaxy, it’s better said with a bouquet of assorted Star Wars characters.
Late-August is a little early to start setting out your holiday snow globes, except when they’ve got Star Wars characters inside. But these aren’t just ordinary snow globes, they’re also Bluetooth speakers, and the blizzard inside gets more intense as your music does.
Greetings, my fantastic friends! (finger guns) Don’t worry, not all the questions in this week’s mailbag are about a certain fantastic flop, although there are a few; I guess that’s what I get for not doing a FAQ. But I also try to solve one of Star Wars’s weirdest, nerdiest mysteries—why the hell is C-3PO programmed…
If you grew up around the same time the Star Wars movies originally hit theaters, you probably had a childhood crush on Princess Leia. But seeing the character in her Slave Leia costume as a Mr. Potato Head will probably leave you feeling a little confused, awkward, and with a strange affection towards french fries.
It's only natural that the next Star Wars model kit is C-3PO, to go with the recently unveiled R2-D2 — and C-3PO's grand début in the 6-inch scale is certainly impressive. So shiny!
Force choke. Force lightning. These are but a few of the more well-known Dark Side powers. Lesser known? Force transforming-into-an-egg, one of the many more obscure Sith tricks Vader never quite found a good excuse to use in any of the films.
It can't be easy being the lesser partner in the most famous robot duo in movie history, so kudos to Sideshow Collectibles for giving its new sixth-scale C-3PO figure as much TLC as it did for its recent R2-D2. Because a droid that specializes in protocol and languages sounds like it would make for a pretty boring…
There are tons of R2-D2 and Princess Leia inspired fashion moments. But what about C-3PO? The golden droid from Star Wars might get the occasional bathing suit, but overall he's usually getting the shaft. Until now. Check out this adorable C-3PO inspired dress that is also quite beautiful.
Artoo and Threepio were never saddled with smoldering romantic subplots, so it makes sense that they'd schedule their RAM jams off-screen. And indeed, the 1975-1979 Italian adult comic book Cappuccetto Rotto boasted this cover showing the droid duo in the midst of group amore. Lest we not forget, C-3PO is used to this…
Every now and again the internet has the capacity to blow our dinky craniums to smithereens — this happens to be one of those moments. Some unplaceable Herculean conviction drove LEGO architect Ryan McNaught to build a 5.76-meter-tall recreation of the Saturn V rocket used for Apollo 11 out of 120,000 plastic bricks.
Like the R2D2 one piece swimsuit before it, this C-3PO swimsuit combines the sexy with a whole ton of geek. A pretty perfect gift for any Star Wars nerd's girlfriend or lover of Star Wars nerds.
I'm surprised that a UK electronics megastore chain got the OK to make this TV ad featuring R2-D2 and C-3PO. But then again, we're talking about George "Show Me The Money" Lucas here. The results, however, are rather good.
Don't forget to bring those to the canteen.
Reader LindsayJoy just received her Indiana Jones and the Lost Tomb LEGO set, complete with snakes, the Lost Ark, snakes, Marion, snakes, Indy, snakes (I hate snakes,) and a special piece we didn't notice the first time we saw the first production set photos: a piece with the hieroglyphic engravings of R2-D2 and C-3PO…
Sideshow Collectibles stopped just short of encasing Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker in fiberglass when they created these life-size C-3PO and R2-D2 collectibles. Due out later this year, the authentic figures are powered by lowly AA batteries and have working lights. They also make sounds from the movies and utter…
What are you doing today? Nothing. You're sitting around reading Gizmodo. (Not that there's anything wrong with that—thanks for stopping by.) But why not be productive with your day and build this K-3PO papercraft model? (You can F5 Gizmodo in the background.)
