I really like this Star Wars clock – it’s ultra geeky but also totally low-key – if this was an official product it would be black and the logo would be 500% bigger and I would wince every time I looked at it. Alas, it’s been blogged all over so YOUgNeek is probably swamped with orders. (And the logo is even optional! Swoon.) Be sure to check out the rest of her store, there’s some pretty neat stuff in there.

Frequent commentor Xadrian sent me the link to pictures of his Lego Nebulon Ranger, a ship from Takes of the Jedi. I had to look it up myself, but I gotta say the Lego build is pretty impressive! See all his pics for a closer look – I couldn’t resist the wee Ulic Qel-Droma.

The idea behind the HERD series is to put focus on items of Western Pop culture that has and still influences me in the Design field as well as the new Artistic direction for ITEM. I wanted to show that these type of items, though mass produced and marketed, were infact what I considered art growing up as opposed to disposal product.

StarWars.com has an extensive slideshow of costume product images scanned in – hilariously – from old-school photo albums. Never had any of these myself, but remember the style well enough to can almost smell the plastic from those horrible masks… shudder.

No, this has nothing to do with Battlestar Galactica, it’s a TIE Fighter made by Wired’s Dan Winters out of nonperishable stuff easily found at a local Starbucks coffee shop:
He used nearly 50 ‘Bucks cups and a crazy number of stirrers to build this, the coolest TIE Fighter ever. “The ribbing on the drink holders reminded me of solar panels,” Winters says. “That instantly registered ‘TIE fighter’ in my head.”
(See a bigger picture at the link.) Wired is running a contest, and I bet there’s a lot more Star Wars stuff to be made from cups and stirrers. Get to it! (via)

There’s no fooling around at the Concept Ships blog. You know exactly what you’re getting, and there’s a hell of a lot of it! Almost overwhelming, but totally worth it. The image above by John Wu. (via)

- Weird: I’m not sure which of Bonnie’s finds is more disturbing: “A Love That Transcends Time, Space & Manufacturer” or Jar Jar Salad. Less freaky: Darth Tater’s Great Adventures.
- The ‘whine more’ files: Man sells his “faith in George Lucas” (aka a 12″ Darth Maul) on eBay for $23 Australian. (via)
- Lists: Speeder bikes are one of io9′s five scifi cycles to adore.
