Ever wanted to use the Force?
Of course you have – we’ve all dreamed of the day when we’ll go all Darth or Luke and move objects with our mind.
Well, now according to the New York Post (via the keen-eyed Jedi minds at Sci Fi Wire) there’s a toy called the Force Trainer (yes, it’s Wars-branded) coming out later in the year that lets you use brain ways to move a ball.
So that makes the Force real. We wondered about other Star Wars icons dragged into our world, and how much fun they might be…
In Star Wars: The lightsaber is the weapon of a Jedi. Elegant, and for a more refined age. “Not as clumsy or as random as a blaster,” as Obi-Wan would have us believe.
Sadly, in the inexperienced hand of Luke, it ends up pretty clumsy – especially when he’s learning to trust his instincts, use the Force and can’t see to fight a shock-blasting training ‘bot.
In Real Life: We can picture the scene right now: Jedi master and President Barack Obama decides he’s had enough of “official language" to reprimand Iran’s leaders over the whole voting scandal.
He hops on Air Force One (which can do the Kessel in about 1,000 years, since it doesn’t actually travel at lightspeed), travels to the country and engages the Ayatollah in man-to-man combat.
It’s a close battle, but Obama is triumphant.
