Check Out These Sweet Star Wars LED Lightsaber Popsicle Makers, Broda

In a 2008 episode of How I Met Your Mother entitled “The Fight,” Jason Segel’s character makes the fine prediction that  “three to five years” from then, he would be cutting his Thanksgiving turkey with a lightsaber. If you, like me, are too antsy to wait another year though, these Star Wars LED Lightsaber Popsicle Makers from ThinkGeek get the whole experience of eating with Old Green pretty damn close.

Originally envisioned as an April Fool’s joke, this “Saber-lickin’ good!” ice pop mold pack features a set of four lightsaber hilts, two Lukes and two Vaders, each with an inserted LED that lets you light up the “blade” in red or green.  Just pour in your favorite liquid, pop on the hilt and in four hours throw away all self-consciousness and stage your very own epic light saber battle (sound effects, sadly, not included.)

A couple other caveats: because the LEDs are battery powered, the hilts are not machine-washable, and unless you plan on making popsicles out of plain sugar water, chances are the color of the LEDs will get lost anyway beneath the filter of whatever orange or purple or Yoda-colored juice you put in the mold.

But if you are just looking for some geektastic decoration or happen to actually like sugar water, have at it. The Star Wars Lightsaber Ice Pop Maker will be available around November, all four for $35 (or less than $10 each).

Oppa Gungan style.

The Last Supper (In a Galaxy Far, Far Away…)

It is perhaps the most recognizable dinner scenes in all of history… and now there’s a Wookie in it. Personally, I think it makes the imagery all the more familiar.

This contemporary take on Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper masterpiece features some striking similarities to the original work, while implementing some recognizable members of the Star Wars universe. The work features Luke Skywalker as the centerpiece in lieu of Christ, as well as some intergalactic bounty hunters, smugglers and droids carefully placed to evoke a similar feel to The Last Supper.

This particular piece of pop art is available for you to bring home on a snazzy new t-shirt for a nominal fee so you can sport this visual nerdgasm wherever you go.
