You know things are tough when… A gift for the geek that has everything – a battle-scarred Hasbro – amazingly got no bids on eBay. Well, maybe not that amazingly, but $300 doesn’t seem that bad a price considering it’ll run you only about half that brand new. ( Millennium Falcon via)
TV: Jon Stewart is very excited about a Threepio bobblehead on Monday’s . I don’t have the heart to tell him that bobbleheads are kind of lame.
The Daily Show Fanmade: Finally, a Han in Carbonite USB drive! Alas, it was already sold out last week.
Lists: I think the green skin might have less to do with their popularity than the trend of not wearing very many clothes.
