The same company responsible for those incredibly tiny RC pico helicopter toys, Bandai Namco’s CCP, has created a line of Star Wars-themed flying toys that are small enough to recreate the films’ most epic space battles in your bedroom.
The popularity of rocking horses has seen a steady decline over the years because kids simply aren't interested in growing up to be cowboys anymore. Thanks to Star Wars, kids would rather grow up to be intergalactic fighter pilots now, so an X-wing-themed rocker just makes a lot more sense these days.
Fantasy Flight Games' X-Wing miniatures game is very cool - so cool that it's still part of my gift guide suggestions 2 years after it came out. But now one fan has made a board fit for playing it on, and it looks awesome.
A new J. J. Abrams' Star Wars VII video shows a new version of the X-Wing starfighter. It may look like a Z-95 Headhunter because it doesn't appear to have the classic s-foils that open to give it it's X attack shape, but this official tweet says it's the real thing. So, ladies and gentlenerds, behold the X-wing Mark…
Would the Rebel Alliance have been able to defeat the Death Stars and the Empire flying a bunch of wooden blocks? No. Then why wouldn't you want to store your kitchen knives in this X-wing shaped knife block that is clearly a superior design to a block of wood?
At five feet in length, Rodger Cleye's X-wing could be the largest flying Star Wars model to date. Except that since it's built with a framework of PVC piping to keep it light, it's the last thing the Rebels will ever want to take into battle.
Just imagine playing this on the R2-D2 version of the Droid 2. The whole word would explode from awesomeness. Who needs a crystal-cut voice dictating turns anyway?
Your Stormtrooper getup works great for conventions with A/C, but what do you do in the dead of summer? That plastic doesn't breathe. Luckily, Jakks Pacific is releasing a large line of Star Wars inflatables.
This is the biggest and most accurate X-Wing model since the movies. In fact, each of the thousand units made from resin, aluminum and LEDs were created from a digitally-scanned original Red 5 miniature body. Update: EFX Collectibles has sent us amazing high definition pictures so you can see all the amazing detail.
We've had X-Wing Fighters that go up and down; here's an X-Wing that just goes down. The venue was Minneapolis' Powderhorn Park, and the event was Minneapolis' annual Art Sled rally. Photographer Tony Nelson took pictures of the day, including a rather spanky la-la double robot one, which you can see below, alongside…
So the X-Wing rocket project failed (albeit in a spectacular manner), leaving its dedicated group of hobbyists back at square one. If you could choose what they decide to send up in the air next, what would it be? Don't like the options in the poll? Submit your own choice in the comments.
Click to viewYou might have seen the liftoff, but here's a video of the day we spent in the desert, awaiting the first (and explosively final) launch of the 1/2 scaled rocket-powered X-Wing fighter. I cried a little when it went down. (Turn up the volume, there's some good dialog drowned out by the din of burning…
Here's a short video of the 21-foot-long X-Wing rocket. launching at Plaster City, California, and then desintegrating spectacularly in mid-air.
Hot diggity damn. This Honda Del Sol was completely converted into a X-Wing Starfighter from Star Wars. Good thing the Del Sol is only a two-seater because there would be no way to haul around all of the babes in this ride. Hit the link for more pictures.
