Some Star Wars Randomness

The good, the bad and the ugly, or rather some geek goodness, a bizarre mashup and some plain silliness…

Firstly the geek goodness – some Star Wars USB flash drives modelled on characters from the films – namely Darth Vader, R2-D2, a Stormtrooper and Chewbacca. These fun little drives are from mimoco and also available through the official Star Wars shop. If Princess Leia trusted R2 with the Death Star plans, I’m sure you could trust a little R2 with your important files…

Second up is a bizarre mashup. Star Wars is awesome and Transformers are cool, but together…? Hasbro has come up with a Darth Vader transformer, with the Dark Lord of the Sith transforming into… wait for it… a Death Star. But of course! Available via Amazon (and loads of toy stores no doubt).

Finally the silliness. To honour the 30th anniversary of the release of Star Wars, the space shuttle Discovery will carry Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber to the International Space Station later this year. Good grief! That’s one big publicity stunt – there must be some big fanboys at NASA! The shuttle is scheduled to blast off on 23 October… (via Gizmodo and bizjournals)
