A Home Theater Worthy of Hyperspace

StarWars.com Team | March 9, 2011

Why watch Star Wars on your TV in a boring living room when you can pretend you’re hanging with R2-D2 and C-3PO in the cockpit of a Corellian Cruiser?

Gizmodo.com writes:

The house has 6 flat panel HDTVs each with their own futuristic touchscreen remote from Creston (each with one button – “WATCH DVD” – that sets all the correct inputs and eliminates headaches). But I’m pretty sure I’d be spending all my time in the theater.

It has life-size R2-D2 and C-3PO replicas that talk to the audience (I assume 3PO stays quiet during the actual screenings), a ceiling featuring a three-dimensional fiber optic scarscape, and a motorized pocket door that serves as the entrance, just like you’d find on a Corellian Cruiser.

Cloning Stormtroopers at LEGO Factory

StarWars.com Team | June 19, 2008

There’s more than one way to build a clone army! The lucky kids at Gizmodo blog take a tour of the LEGO factory in Denmark.

Check out this video about how the iconic mini-figure gets its characteristic evil look after getting out of the mold machine. The printing of these mini-figs is one of the most expensive and delicate processes at the Lego factory. The rubber stamping has to be done in a very precise way – printing feature by feature in layers – until it’s done.
