Whether it's destroying Stormtroopers' speeder bikes, Leia kissing her brother, or the creepy celebration after the battle for the forest moon of Endor, you can bring your favorite Episode VI scenes to life with the Lego Star Wars Ewok Village ($250). This gigantic set (nearly 2,000 pieces) is full of surprises and treats for fans. It comes with 17 minifigs — including three never-before-seen Ewoks, and new looks for Luke and Leia — a catapult, speeder bike, plenty of lightsabers, blasters, and spears, and even a levitating throne for C-3PO. Expect the set in stores by September. Until then, we'll be watching Return of the Jedi on repeat.
They're obviously not the first company you'd think of when it comes to sporting goods, but given their reputation for rugged, quality leather goods, we suppose these Coach Heritage Baseball Bats & Gloves ($250-$350) make sense. The bats are made from American maple, dip-dyed by hand and wrapped with artisanal leather at the handle, while the gloves are crafted by hand in the USA using Coach's colorblocked glove-tanned leather. Crafted in collaboration with Warstic Wood Bat Co. and Insignia Athletics, respectively, these goods are available in a variety of colorways — but remember, they're limited edition, so if you're looking for a specific color, you'd better move quickly.
With the ability to drive and fly, the B Remote-Controlled Flying Car/Helicopter ($560) can pretty much go anywhere. Its innovation lies in a patent-pending wheel and propeller design, which places each prop within the wheel. It can take off vertically, hover and fly, and return to the ground to continue driving. Durable polycarbonate construction means it can survive falls from the air and punishing terrain on the ground. A 720p on-board camera and 32G Micro SD card support makes this one capable reconnaissance vehicle. Now, if only they could figure out a way to make the battery last longer than 15 minutes a charge.
Put your mark on that perfect piece of meat — no that's not what we mean — with the DCI BBQ Branding Iron ($18). This metal and wood branding iron is the perfect addition to your collection of grilling tools. It includes the entire alphabet (plus extras and spacers), so you can write just about any message you think of. Letters easily slide onto the rack, with no need for additional tools. Stake a claim to that porterhouse, or amuse your friends with your favorite Ron Swanson-ism ("You had me at meat tornado").
