John Eldredge of St. Petersburg, Florida writes in a Facebook Marketplace listing that he made this lifesize Santa in Carbonite for a sci-fi Christmas party. But the party's over and Santa must go. $200. Light settings are adjustable to flash at different speeds or not at all. Made with wood, clothes and a lot of hot glue! It's basically a craft and not a precision model, but looks cool. Side panels are made with cosplay foam. Unit is pretty light and stands about 6.5 ft. tall. photo via John Eldredge/Facebook

Create your own version of "Smell-O-Vision" by watching one the first three Star Wars films and lighting these officially-licensed candles from Merchoid when the scene coincides with the smell.
List of scents:
A New Hope:
Wookiee: Ever wondered what a walking carpet smells like? Bantha Milk [erroneously spelled 'Banther' on the candle]: Love the smell of bantha milk in the morning? Trash Compactor: Find out what was very nearly the last smell Luke, Leia and Han ever experienced X-wing Cockpit: Perfect for playthroughs of Battlefront's aerial combat Cantina: Eau de scum and villainy Lightsaber Duel: Do you prefer the smell of the dark side or the light side?
The Empire Strikes Back:
Han Solo Carbonite: This smell is all Leia had to remember Han for a long time Millenium Falcon: She may not look much, but she's got it where it counts (the smell) Inside of a Tauntaun: Thought it smelt bad on the outside? You've experienced nothing yet! Yoda's Cooking Pot: Yoda's legendary Force powers are only eclipsed by his cooking skills. Smell it for yourself!
Return Of The Jedi:
Rancor: The only way to smell a Rancor without ending up its lunch Sarlaac Pit: Add a new dimension to your favourite ROTJ scene Jabba's Palace: Admit it, you've always wondered what Jabba smells like Ewok: Do they smell as cute as they look? Let's find out! Death Star Destroyed: The sweet smell of rebellion
Every year, Halloween costumes get weirder and more complicated. Case in point: this inflatable Han-in-Carbonite one.
Here's how it works:
For $59.99, you get the adult-sized costume (and a battery-operated fan to inflate it), plus gloves and a mask for the full effect.

LEGO Han in Carbonite is reason enough for me to buy the LEGO Star Wars Carbon-Freezing Chamber.
While LEGO Lando isn't to be seen, he's clearly still a traitorous jerk! LEGO Han is getting frozen in carbonite! LEGO Boba and an Ugnaught are included to run the operation.
After a long day of intergalactic smuggling, Han Solo probably cooled off with something a little stronger than a glass of bantha milk. And now, you can channel your inner smuggler with these Millennium Falcon Ice Molds, available in the Boing Boing Store for $9.99.
Cooler than carbonite, these dual molds make two fun, intricate ice Millennium Falcons so you can chill your cocktail of choice with some Star Wars flair. Whether you're looking to add some character to your cocktail hour or just step up your Star Wars fandom, these silicone molds let you do so in style. And, with summer coming up, you can trust you'll be using them often to beat the heat.
Pie designer Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin made these mouthwatering Jabba the Hutt turnovers!
– 2 apples – bit of cinnamon – one package of Pillsbury pre-made pie crust

They would go well with Han Solo in Chocolate Carbonite!

If you missed Thinkgeek's sold-out Han Solo in Carbonite rug, here's your chance: the Han Solo in Carbonite towel which is part of a Star Wars Towel set that also includes minimalist Vader/R2/Chewy options. But seriously, the Han Solo is the one to get. $25 each or $70 for the set.
