Enjoy this cool video of some Royal Danish Air Force's F-16s flying low level over Greenland. I imagine the pilots wearing rebel helmets looking for Imperial AT-AT walkers. Pew pew.
I came across some wintertime military photographs that looked like lost frames from the Battle of Hoth, in The Empire Strikes Back. So much, in fact, that I couldn't resist adding some laser gun turrets and AT-ATs. Check them out and post your mashups in the comments.
It is one of the weirdest, wildest moments in Star Wars history. Han Solo picks up Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and slices open the belly of his dead tauntaun and stuffs Luke in to to warm him up and save his life.
Opportunities for skiing aside, life on Hoth can be brutal. The planet features little life (and some of that life wants to eat you), and if you're separated from your home base and your tauntauns, you're likely in for an icy death. The dramatic Lego scenes capture the highs and lows of life on the snowy Star Wars…
We've looked at some abandoned Bulgarian Socialist architecture before, but never like this. This winter, photographer Timothy Allen braved snowstorms and horrific cold to shoot the UFO-like Buzludzha monument in the Bulgarian Balkans. The resulting pictures look like the lost Communist equivalent of Echo Base.
The Norwegian documentary Bergensbanen details the gorgeous 300-mile, 7.5-hour-long train ride from Bergen to Oslo. An intrepid group of DJs have scored the entire journey, which traverses the frozen region of Finse (a.k.a. Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back).
The Industrial Light & Magic team has been responsible for some of the most iconic scenes in modern movie history. Their magic has graced Star Wars, E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark and more. Here's a peek behind the curtain.
The temperature's dropping, and with the chillier weather comes the inevitable Wampa migration. Most municipalities deal with this influx of tundra-dwelling reptomammals by cowering in fear. Nonetheless, brave entrepreneurs have transformed the savage beast into a home furnishing.
These aren't film frames from The Empire Strikes Back, even while they look exactly like Rebel Alliance's Echo Base, ion cannon included. They are not on the icy surface of planet Hoth, but much nearer, in the Artic circle.
A single probe droid scours the icy landscape of Hoth, in this new Star Wars poster which we're bringing to you exclusively, a day before it goes on sale. The last three posters sold out within an hour.
If you think the Tauntaun sleeping bag was pretty hard to beat, you are wrong. Play some Barry White, get naked, and jump onto this furry Wampa Rug. You will make your significant other and polar bears worldwide very happy.
