Fan-Made Remote Control Millennium Falcon

With the ever-rising popularity in drones, and more specifically the four-propeller quadricopter style, geeks are making sure to take advantage by building working versions of their favorite fictional aircraft.

Recently, we saw an impressive functional remote control version of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier, and now comes a working fan-made version of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, the famous ship owned by Han Solo that can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

Click on over to the other side now to see a few videos of the fan-made Falcon in action, including a visit to Hoth (sorta).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon

Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger graces this month’s cover of Fortune magazine, but it’s what was placed behind the mogul in the photo that’s truly noteworthy — the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, what will be Disney’s first Star Wars installment since acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012.

Han Solo’s famed ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs can be seen in flight in the film’s recently released teaser trailer, but the magazine is offering the first close-up look at the newly designed Falcon.

Check out the cover image here below, along with a second image of Iger standing in front of the Millennium Falcon.

Star Wars Stormtrooper and Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Over the past couple of months, Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Twitter account have been going back and forth with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder and his Twitter account with crossovers of the Star Wars and DC Comics worlds.

Up until now it had just been some fun images (which you can check out right here), but today Star Wars grabbed the upper hand and raised the stakes, releasing a very cool video of the Millennium Falcon with a little added surprise and an epic score to accompany the video.

J.J. Abrams With Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing

Normally set photos don’t tell us much besides giving us a behind the scenes look at a production of a film. These photos are a dime a dozen, and generally come from pedestrians or production crew who were given the social media green light. But when it comes to set photos for Star Wars: Episode VII, it’s something that should be turning heads.

We already know that J.J. Abrams will be using practical effects for the highly anticipated film, meaning there won’t be as much CGI, and iconic ships like the Millennium Falcon and X-Wing fighters will be built from the ground up. But with these sets closely guarded from prying eyes, it will be hard for set photos to be leaked. Unless you are taking these photos from the sky above. A flight school managed to discover where these two ships are being built, and took a photo of them. Hit the jump to check it out.

J.J. Abrams Posts Photo In Response To Leaked ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Pics

Millennium Falcon Image

Yesterday, TMZ released photos of the famed Millennium Falcon starship of Star Wars fame under construction at a secret location in the UK where set pieces, props, and creatures are reportedly being constructed for the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII.

Today, Episode VII’s director J.J. Abrams took to Twitter and posted a most intriguing photo with a message that pleads with fans to stop leaking photos from the film and making “ridiculous claims” that the starship will be in the movie. Some people think he’s being serious, but the note in the photo sits atop what looks like the Millennium Falcon’s hologame table. That’s the table where the wookiee Chewbecca and the droid R2-D2 played the chess-like game Dejarik in Star Wars: A New Hope in a round that ends with C-3PO suggesting a new strategy to fellow metal counterpart — let the wookiee win.

Millennium Falcon Image

The Star Wars: Episode VII set has been a super secret location, and understandably so. But someone has been busy snapping pictures of the behind the curtain goings on, and TMZ has gotten their hands on the images.

If you’d like to be surprised when the first official images and trailers come along for Episode VII it’s probably best to avoid these. But for everyone else, and especially for those who have been extra skeptical of the movie, the pics are a must-see.

Lucasfilm Possibly Developing Standalone Boba Fett and Young Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ Movies

Han Solo and Boba Fett

Yesterday we reported that Disney and Lucasfilm were ramping up their long-term grand plans for Star Wars with the announcement that they would be developing a series of movies set apart from Episode VII and on that would focus on individual characters from the Star Wars universe, including a possible Yoda movie.

Entertainment Weekly today broke an exclusive addendum to that revelation with the news that both Han Solo, the roguish but lovable space smuggler that helped make Harrison Ford a star in the original Star Wars movies, and Boba Fett, the masked intergalactic bounty hunter who had little screen time in the original trilogy but has since become a huge fan favorite character, might also be headlining their own standalone movies.

Full-Size Millennium Falcon Image #1

Owning a real Millennium Falcon, the ship piloted by Han Solo in Star Wars, is not an option people have. Because of this, a group of friends who are Star Wars fanatics decided to take the one and only option that does exist: building their own full-size replica of the ship.

Piece by piece and bit by bit, the friends have been building their own Falcon over the past handful of years. There’s still many years of building ahead of them, but the ship is starting to take shape.

Check out some images of their work in progress below!

Mimobot Makes Flash Drives Cool At Toy Fair 2012

mimobot star wars

Blank DVDs and CDs are going the way of the dinosaurs in favor of the infinitely reusable and non-OS specific (usually) flash drive. These little devices allow sharing of data with the click of a USB port, and they’re much greener than one time use only discs if you’re into that sort of thing. For the longest time these little devices had all the style of a giant suppository, but that’s just not the case any longer.

Mimobot is a company that’s creating USB flash drives and card readers that allow their owners to show off their geek love while still having a flash drive at the ready. The company had and still has the Star Wars license so last year there were R2D2, Yoda, and C3PO flash drives along with many other classic characters. This year they upped the ante with a Millennium Falcon card reader, as well as new flash drives from DC Comics and Transformers.

Star Wars Coins

The New Zealand Mint is set to offer a very special new set of coins featuring the likes of some of your favorite characters from George Lucas‘s classic Star Wars series.

The first series includes eight 1oz 999 silver coins in two separate sets. The first comes in a Darth Vader helmet case (that even makes the iconic villain’s breathing sound when you open it), and features Vader, Emperor Palpatine, a Stormtrooper, and the Death Star. The second comes in a Millennium Falcon case (which makes the “jump to light speed” sound when opened), and features the dynamic duos of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, R2-D2 and C-3PO, and Han Solo and Chewbacca.
