Own this massive Millennium Falcon bouncy house, or not

Nearly ten grand. That's what it will cost to get the STAR WARS Millennium Falcon Hyperspace Jump Experience bouncy house into your life. Magic Jump, the company behind this 1,100 pound officially-licensed monstrosity, also offers financing for $237.38/month. Or you can find an entertainment company with one in their inflatable jumper repertoire to bring you this:

Passengers will encounter a Chewbacca inflatable as they enter and an R2D2 inflatable replica and C-3PO graphic as they jump their way around the ship. Passengers will feel the rush as they imagine piloting the Millennium Falcon like Han Solo and Chewbacca as they explore the cockpit area; pretend to operate the cockpit's master control panel with its gears, switches, and buttons; and eject themselves down a small slide. In the main cabin, they'll come across inflatable pop-up obstacles such as a bunk, storage container, and holo-map where they can see a holographic-like rendering of the Death Star. Passengers can step up to the laser cannon turret where they can pretend to defend against Imperial forces, and they can also pretend to play dejarik at the hologame table. The pièce de ré·sis·tance is the climber/slide in the center of the ship with ceiling hatch graphic showing explosive battle with a Star Destroyer and TIE fighters.

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!
