The internet’s favorite Star Wars cake – this week. As impressive as this Tauntaun grooms cake is, I’m not sure I’d want to eat it. Still, props to the folks at Cake Nouveau for really capturing the moment. And by moment I meant slimy tauntaun guts. (Their dazed-out Luke is amazingly good, too.)
Artoo found in Transformers 2. Are there enough oil baths in the world to get the poor droid clean after this?
Seriously? Someone is taking their dedication to authentic costuming a little too far.
Quack Vader. This unauthorized ’70′s Vader light looks like something Robot Chicken would come up with. Maybe Seth Green had one, too?
And finally… Sideshow has a site up for the customized stormtrooper figures they showed off at SDCC.

His biggest fan. Of course there was a Plo Koon cake, and of course it was eventually served to none other than Dave Filoni. (And Jeremy Bulloch. And Ashley Eckstein.)
Brains. StarWars.com celebrates the release of Death Troopers with Zombie Week. I wish I had the words to tell you how much I’m feeling Zombie Week, but I’m exhausted.
Charity. The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society is selling Obi-Wan medallions to help raise money for seriously injured service members.

At least for one particularly dedicated gamer. PopSci recently spotlighted Brian De Vitis’ customized Artoo cooler, which holds the relevant technical bits of eight consoles, a sound system, and a projector. (via)

The saddest thing about this is that it isn’t even the weirdest bit of Artoo merchandise I’ve seen in the last 24 hours: There was an ceramic R2-D2 bong on Amazon.com yesterday. Can’t say I’m shocked that it seems to have vanished overnight. (via)

In addition to hiding out in Star Trek, now we have word that Artoo shows up someplace in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. If this continues then he’ll be shacking up with some cheap starlet and things will just get all Beneath the Dome again. Resist, Artoo! Resist!
