8 of the best LEGO Star Wars fan creations

The wonderful thing about LEGO is that with those tiny bricks, you can build just about anything. Sure, you start out building from pre-made kits, but eventually you'll expand to making your own creations. Somewhere in a closet I still have the TIE fighter and X-wing that I built, long before there were any official kits. They weren't exact replicas, but with my imagination, they were perfect for space battles. Today, I thought I'd take you through some of the best Star Wars Lego fan creations. Here they are, in no particular order:

Poe Dameron and BB-8 roll into their own comic book series

BB-8 will be rolling alongside his master in "Star Wars: Poe Dameron", set to be a comic book series soon. This comic will be out just in time to fill the void of information on one of the break-out characters from the film The Force Awakens. This comic book will be created by Charles Soule and Phil Noto, and Oscar Isaac's likeness will be splashed across pages in full effect. That fellow is going to be around for a while. Think Wedge Antilles.

After all, while the movie is an incredible experience in theaters, it will be nice to pop it in and watch it whenever you want.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Who is TR-8R?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Who is TR-8R?

This morning Star Wars officially made public the identity of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens character TR-8R. "Traitor!" He's a mad one. As suspected, this stormtrooper goes by the name FN-2199, one of three troopers revealed in the book "Before the Awakening", a set of short stories giving background on the three main characters in the film. That story was about FN-2187, aka Finn. This character knew Finn well before the awakening, hence the knowledge of his being a traitor when he finds him on Takodana, near Maz's castle.

Rey fans, rejoice! The Force Awakens Monopoly will feature the heroine

Rey fans, rejoice! The Force Awakens Monopoly will feature the heroine

Star Wars fans who are also into board games were in an uproar this week, as it was discovered that a new version of Monopoly based on The Force Awakens was missing one of the new movie's most important characters. The game comes with four board avatars, with Finn and Kylo Ren representing some of the franchise's latest characters, while Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader are the classics. This selection left out a central female character, and arguably the new movie's main hero: Rey.

Star Wars: TFA Monopoly has no Rey

Star Wars: TFA Monopoly has no Rey

This week it's becoming apparent that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Monopoly game just isn't up to snuff. This first edition was released all the way back in September, but it didn't become apparent until now, after most Star Wars fans have seen the film, that the game's contents aren't in line with the film. In particular, the game's four board avatars. They consist of Return of the Jedi Luke and Return of the Jedi Darth Vader - which is fine. They also consist of Kylo Ren and Finn (or FN-2187, if you prefer). This game does not contain the main character of the film: Rey.

Star Wars Force Band by Sphero commands BB-8 (our hands-on)

Star Wars Force Band by Sphero commands BB-8 (our hands-on)

One of the most fantastic toys ever made, BB-8 by Sphero, now has its own remote control. The basic model requires your smartphone to move around - and that's pretty awesome as it is. But Sphero wanted to go the extra mile. Forget these drones that are commanded by your smartwatch. Sphero wants to sell you the device, not just push an app to someone else's gear. That's why they're showing off the Star Wars Force Band.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens BB-8 ringtone downloads movie-accurate

This week we've been passed a collection of sounds synthesized from the publicly-available Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie trailers, all sounds made by BB-8. These BB-8 sound effects have been cut down and cleaned and formatted in a way that makes them perfect for whatever odd project the Star Wars-loving public might want to use them for. We'll be using them for ringtones and notification sounds on our smartphones - you can do what you wish.

Star Wars Anti-Cheese edits will change how you see the prequels

Star Wars Anti-Cheese edits will change how you see the prequels

One film editor and Star Wars fan has taken it upon himself to edit all three of the Star Wars prequels to take out the cheese. Jeremy M West's edits change the voices of the aliens in the films, cut out the bits that do the film's plot lines no favors, and generally turn the films, even if you've seen them each several times, into works that are once again watchable. These edits take out what you, a battle-hardened Original Star Wars Trilogy fan, consider the cringe-worthy bits of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Who is Maz Kanata?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Who is Maz Kanata?

Right around 50 minutes into the 2-hour Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, we see a tiny character by the name of Maz Kanata. She's a mostly-CGI character voiced and acted by Lupita Nyong'o, and she's more than a little important to the overarching Anakin saga that flows through the Star Wars film universe. The following is a glimpse at what Maz has been up to for the past several hundred years, what she's done with regard to Han Solo, and what she's got in her secret curio box. Therefore, if you've not seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we recommend you proceed with caution!

The original Star Wars trailers get re-cut with a modern take

With The Force Awakens we finally got to see a Star Wars movie from the perspective of someone other than George Lucas. That's not to say that Lucas didn't do some pretty wonderful and incredible things with the story he created, but it was nice to see someone else's take on it.
