The US is getting its first lightsaber combat training academy

It looks like a crazy bunch of fun, but for those who partake in it, it’s a serious sport: Lightsaber Combat. The sport finds its home in a Milan, Italy facility called LudoSport, where warriors pick up their glowing lightsaber replicas and engage in combat. Joining the Italy and other facilities is a new LudoSport site opening in San Francisco, marking the United States' first official lightsaber training academy.

Sphero BB-8 Force Band Review : Star Wars’ top wearable

Sphero BB-8 Force Band Review : Star Wars’ top wearable

Sphero's Force Band for BB-8 is the best example of going above-and-beyond the call of duty I've ever seen in a Star Wars toy. And I've seen a lot of Star Wars toys. While there are some mightily impressive action figures out there - some with details so striking, I can barely tell model from real life - this Force Band for the BB-8 by Sphero amplifies the Star Wars magic already present in BB-8 by Sphero, a device we maintain is the Best Star Wars Toy Ever Made.

Star Wars R2-D2 coffee press is the preorder your morning needs

Star Wars R2-D2 coffee press is the preorder your morning needs

There’s no shortage of Star Wars kitchen supplies; they span all sorts of gizmos, things like the X-Wing knife block and a dinner timer. Arguably the greatest among them all, though, is a new R2-D2 coffee press that has gone up for preorder. This coffee press looks like a miniature -- though still somewhat large -- R2-D2, only with a clear body rather than a white one. That inner empty space can hold up to 32 ounces of brewed coffee.

Star Wars Rogue One Director Krennic’s Shuttle LEGO Review

One of several LEGO sets made for the release of Star Wars Rogue One is here - Director Krennic's Shuttle. Behold, the LEGO Empire's award for Best Dressed in pre-Yavin attire goes to none other than Director Krennic. He'll be arriving in his all-black shuttle to emphasize his white outfit - and cape, of course. This vehicle should remind any hardcore Star Wars fan of the Emperor's own shuttle - and several other three-winged beasts made for only the most powerful of Imperial agents.

Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC gets release date and first gameplay trailer

We're closing in on the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront's new Death Star DLC, but up until now, we haven't seen any gameplay footage from it. Electronic Arts and DICE have decided to let us in on a little peek ahead of launch, and this looks like it might be worth the price of admission. Not only are we getting new hero characters Bossk and Chewbacca, but the trailer confirms that the Death Star trench run will feature in the DLC, something many of the Star Wars faithful will likely get excited about.

Star Wars BB-8-controlling Force Band from Sphero debuts this month

Star Wars BB-8-controlling Force Band from Sphero debuts this month

When paired with BB-8, the wristband allows users to control their bot with mere hand gestures. And it will finally be available later this month.

Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC just made the game a must-have

Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC just made the game a must-have

We've been getting a lot of news coming in from Gamescom, but if a Metal Gear game centered around zombies doesn't sound like your cup of tea, maybe Star Wars can help. Electronic Arts has detailed a new Battlefront game mode called Battle Station, which will arrive with the game's incoming Death Star DLC. Despite the game's rather sparse offerings at launch, it sounds like Battle Station might make returning to Battlefront well worth it for a lot of players.
