Casey Pugh | December 21, 2012

Star Wars fans love to eat. Or, at least it looks like it, according to all these pizza slices, green pea piles, and whipped dessert toppings found in the scenes submitted for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut.

The Empire Strikes Back‘s many planets give fans ample reason to dig into their scene-setting skills: Hoth, Cloud City, that pesky space slug. As more people are re-imagining scenes for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, it’s pretty clear that a lot of people paint in a palette of awesome-looking food groups.

Check out some of our favorite foodie fan-takes after the jump!

How to Make a Great Pit of Carkoon Bundt Cake

Jennifer Landa | October 24, 2012

Carkoon Cake 1

Brain cupcakes. Chocolate eyeballs. Worms in dirt. These are the types of desserts I look forward to eating every Halloween. For this year’s festivities, I wanted to create a treat that puts a Star Wars twist on those traditional spooky desserts. In my opinion, nothing says scary like The Great Pit of Carkoon and the deadly Sarlacc that inhabits it. Being digested over the course of a thousand years is what nightmares are made of!

Rejected Episode I Toy Concepts: Part 2

Pete Vilmur | February 27, 2012

Four years ago, blogger and ex-toy designer Jason Geyer posted a set of rejected Episode I toy concepts to be used as premiums for Pepsi , who in 1998 was ramping up for some big tie-in promotions for The Phantom Menace. That blog entry created quite a stir among fans and collectors, with the most common response being, ‘Why didn’t this stuff get made?’

While we can’t report any progress on that front (well, perhaps a bit – see below), Geyer has just posted several dozen more unused concepts, which one has to admit are pretty imaginative!

From the blog:

When we were coming up with all of these concepts pretty much the only thing we had to keep in mind was for everyone to make sure we hit every price point with at least a few ideas, so that we weren’t all concentrating on the big tickets things (which were more fun!). And as guys who immersed themselves in Star Wars, it was less about looking for things to concept about, and more to try and design something that would incent fans, moms, and kids to want to buy some Pepsi to get our merchandise.

Unlike the first set revealed in 2008, it appears that at least a few of these ideas did actually see the light of day years later, dreamed up independently by others with a strong connection to the Force (the Death Star Galaxy Projector, Star Wars Golf Set, Han in Carbonite Popsicle Mold, Yoda Backpack, Talking Yoda and Lightsaber Flashlight have all been produced in some form or another).

McDonald’s Star Wars Spinners

| February 8, 2012

Starting February 10 in U.S. McDonald’s restaurants, fans will be able to collect one of eight Episode I 3D-themed spinners with the purchase of a Happy Meal!

The spinners, which are launched like tops from a spring-loaded handle, come in eight shapes: Darth Maul’s lightsaber, Sebulba’s Podracer engine, Mace Windu’s lightsaber, Qui-Gon Jinn’s lightsaber, Yoda’s lightsaber, R2-D2, Anakin’s Podracer engine, and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s lightsaber. The spinners themselves showcase the corresponding handle’s “owner.”

Look for all eight Star Wars spinners at participating McDonald’s in the U.S. starting this Friday (and while you’re at it, go catch Episode I 3D in theaters!).

Utinni! Jawa Vegan Cookie Cupcakes!

Bonnie Burton | December 12, 2011

I love crafty fan JustJenn Designs and her tasty tributes to Star Wars! Using the new Williams-Sonoma Droids and Aliens Cookie Cutters, JustJenn Designs made these adorkable and delicious Jawa Vegan Cookie Cupcakes!

JustJenn writes:

The new Droids and Aliens cutters came out and I was drawn to the Jawas. I was always fascinated with how the hoods covered them entirely and how deeply inset their faces seemed to be – what exactly was behind those beady yellow eyes? I knew I wanted to capture that same idea when using the cookie cutters.

I was going to a Merry Sithmas party believe it or not, and one of the guests had a lot of food allergies. She is always left out when it came to desserts and seeing as how she LOVES Star Wars as much as I do, I decided to come up with a totally Vegan cookie and cupcake combo.

Find out how she made these delicious desserts here:
