The Millennium Falcon, the USS Enterprise or Serenity–which ship do you think would win in a race? Sure, the Falcon made the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs, and the Enterprise has that powerful warp drive, but Serenity has a few sly tricks up her sleeve too (Crazy Ivan, anyone?), so it’s really up in the air (or in space).

Someone please give an award to cosplayer Nana Bear for the most unique mash up of the year for this Darth Vader Pikachu cosplay. Now that I’ve seen Darth-Chu, I can’t unsee it—but that’s okay because I love it.

While you may not need to carry around things like thermal detonators, this Star Wars Boba Fett backpack does have a hard shell that means whatever’s inside will have a little extra protection. Perfect for the bounty hunter on the go.

Capture

San Diego Comic-Con features some of the most amazing cosplay you’ll ever see. This year, artist Frank Ippolito took things up a notch with his foam Rancor costume. Amazingly enough, he built it in less than a month with references from an original test costume used Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. See it all come together in the video after the break…

daisy ridley star wars manicure

During Comic-Con, I saw a picture of Daisy Ridley (Rey in The Force Awakens) with a fan and noticed that her nails were different colors, which I already thought was cool. Now it turns out that Ridley was sporting a Star Wars themed manicure with hand painted designs. So cute!

We’ve seen silhouette tights for everything from Batman to narwhals, but finally…FINALLY there are Star Wars versions. Grab ’em while you can because these tend to sell out quickly.

I know I’ve made my bag fixation pretty clear, but now I get to tell you that I saw both the faux leather Star Wars Movie Poster tote and wallet at SDCC and fell in love. That said, I’m officially bummed I didn’t get to see the trooper backpack, but it’s probably a good thing because I would have easily justified that purchase with the old “I need this Star Wars bag to hold all of my other Star Wars bags!”

nixon-star-wars-watch

In anticipation of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Nixon took advantage of the SDCC hype to announce their officially licensed line of Star Wars watches.

Nixon has designed the first two, called Ranger Imperial Pilot Black and Ranger Stormtrooper White, with subtle and sleek elements so they can be paired with any attire.

The watch face resembles body armor and features a small Imperial symbol in place of the twelve marker. The back is etched with the iconic Stormtrooper and Pilot helmets along with quotes “move along” on the white version and “crash and burn” on the black version. Every detail was considered including the watch hands which are inspired by the helmet’s ventilation system.

Just gorgeous. Take a look at the watches up close along with a teaser video after the break.

stormtrooper-comic-con-walk

Donned in Stormtrooper attire, Kevin Doyle walked over 500 miles to SDCC in honor of his wife Eileen Shige Doyle, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2012.

He was lost without the love of his life. They shared a passion for art and for Star Wars (both were members of the 501st). He tells San Diego Tribune:

“In the time since she died, I’ve struggled with how to deal with the loss. I’ve been self-destructive and my art suffered. Being out here, my mindset is an open book. I hope I find enough healing to be creative and work in that way again.”

Kevin was inspired to embark on his journey when he realized that the distance from San Francisco to Sand Diego was 501 miles.

“When you lose somebody, you look for things like that. To me it was like she was telling me that this was something I needed to do.”

This journey was not just a beautiful act of love, but also the means to raise funds to open a foundation in her honor, Eileen’s Little Angels. He hopes to transform her artwork into coloring book, bandannas, blankets, and plush toys to share with children battling cancer.

His story is truly inspiring. Check out more amazing images of his heartfelt walk after the break.
