Le Creuset announces a line of high-end Star Wars cookwear

French company Le Creuset has announced a line of its signature enameled cast-iron cookwear themed after the Star Wars franchise; it's expensive even by Le Creuset standards, and a few of the pieces are uninspired messes, but the Han Solo in Carbonite roaster ($450), the R2-D2 Mini Cocotte ($30) and the Porg Pie Bird ($25) are positively brilliant. I'm also fond of the Tattoine Dutch oven, but that one isn't even priced and the company is offering an "opportunity to purchase." (via Geekologie) Read the rest

Le Creuset launches cast-iron Star Wars cookware

Mini Cocottes of BB-8, C-3PO, and R2-D2 ($30 each)

Just when you thought they had made all the Star Wars items we'd ever need in a lifetime, comes the Star Wars x Le Creuset Collection. Yep, the high-end cast-iron brand will soon release a line of Star Wars cookware, from a Han Solo frozen-in-carbonite roaster ($450)...

To an extremely limited-edition, hand-painted Tatooine Round Dutch Oven ($900 and sold separately from the rest of the line)...

Then there are these Death Star and Millennium Falcon trivets for $20 each...

And this $395 Darth Vader dutch oven...

But, perhaps the most adorable of the collection is a pie bird fashioned after The Last Jedi's Porg ($25).

The pieces (except that Tatooine dutch oven) will be available November 1 online, at Le Creuset boutique and outlet stores, and at William-Sonoma stores.

For Sale: (1) Santa in Carbonite

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.

LEGO Han Solo gets frozen in LEGO carbonite

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.

Drink like Han Solo with these Millennium Falcon Ice Molds

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.

The Millennium Falcon Ice Molds normally retail for $14.99, but they're available in the Boing Boing Store for $9.99, more than 30 percent off the usual price. Read the rest
