Drink From the Death Star (and More) With These Stars Wars Glasses

There’s plenty of nerdy Star Wars glassware available on the market, but this set from ThinkGeek may have them all beat. Each of the six cups is made to resemble a different celestial body from the Star Wars universe. You can drink from a planet (Alderaan, Dagobah, Hoth, Tatooine), a moon (Endor), and even from the infamous Death Star.

These 10-ounce glasses would make the perfect vehicles for some Star Wars-inspired cocktails. And in case you feel tempted to smash Alderaan into tiny smithereens, a clever shatter effect has already been added. 

The colorful designs were achieved using high-temperature heat wraps, so you’ll need to wash these by hand. All six can be purchased for $49.99 from ThinkGeek’s website

This Decal Set Transforms a Roomba Into R2-D2

With a simple decal set, you can transform a Roomba from a robot vacuum cleaner into a droid from a galaxy far, far away. According to Gizmodo, Bel & Bel, a design studio/workshop in Barcelona, Spain, created these blue-and-white vinyl stickers. Affix them to your Roomba, and the device will instantly look like R2-D2. An added bonus? It's way better at cleaning up Wookiee fur.

Sadly, the stickers aren't available for order yet, nor is there a price tag. However, Star Wars fans can keep their eyes peeled for an eventual sale date by checking out Bel & Bel's website.

Tiny Star Wars Fans Can Now Cruise Around in Their Very Own Landspeeders

Some kids collect Hot Wheels, while others own model lightsabers and dream of driving Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder through a galaxy far, far away. Soon, Mashable reports, these pint-sized Jedis-in-training can pilot their very own replicas of the fictional anti-gravity craft: an officially licensed, kid-sized Star Wars Landspeeder, coming in September from American toy company Radio Flyer.

The Landspeeder has an interactive dashboard with light-up buttons, and it plays sounds from the original Star Wars film. The two-seater doesn’t hover, exactly, but it can zoom across desert sands (or suburban sidewalks) at forward speeds of up to 5 mph, and go in reverse at 2 mph.

The vehicle's rechargeable battery allows for around five hours of drive time—just enough for tiny Star Wars fans to reenact their way through both the original 1977 movie and 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back. (Sorry, grown-up sci-fi nerds: The toy ride supports only up to 130 pounds, so you’ll have to settle for pretending your car is the Death Star.)

Radio Flyer’s Landspeeder will be sold at Toys “R” Us stores. It costs $500, and is available for pre-order online now.
