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.

The Millennium Falcon makes a great quadcopter

The Millennium Falcon is pretty well shaped to fly as an RC quadcopter!

I'm a huge fan of Air Hogs RC toys, and have been destroying their boats in salt water for years and years. I was thrilled to see someone flying this giant 27" Millennium Falcon XL around the beach this weekend, and even happier to find out there is a smaller, 10" version that don't cost an arm and a leg.

The fine person flying the XL model on the beach said the big guy a little rough to control, however the smaller unit is a great indoor flyer. It doesn't surprise me, the XL model is pretty ambitious.

I know which nephew of mine is getting the smaller one for Hanukkah!
