Lego unveils Ewok Village set for all your Lego Ewok massacre needs

Yub and nub, my friends. Lego will release a massive, almost-2,000-piece Ewok Village set this September. It'll run you $250, is over a foot tall, and will include a speederbike, 15 minifigures (some of which have reversible faces with different expressions — angry Leia is amazing), and an Imperial helmet drum kit. » 6/03/13 10:50am 6/03/13 10:50am

This Ewok village gingerbread diorama is too awesome to eat

Something tells me the Ewoks may have gone over better if the forest moon of Endor (and all of its denizens) were made out of gingerbread and a metric ton of fondant. Also, the Empire's machinations might have actually worked if they constructed the Death Star entirely out of Rice Krispies Treats. This ridiculously… » 12/04/11 7:00am 12/04/11 7:00am

Watch Neil Patrick Harris' insane lecture on Ewoks from How I Met Your…

It may make you feel old, but you have to face up to the truth of the matter: This year, Ewoks celebrate their first quarter century since springing, fully-formed no matter how short, from George Lucas' fevered furry mind. And, while these days the little midget bears have come to personify everything that went wrong… » 5/30/08 6:30am 5/30/08 6:30am
