Ever wondered what it smelled like on the forest moon of Endor? Thanks to the scent experts at Homesick candles, now you can find out.

It’s sad to walk into a store and see Star Wars bed sheets and blankets that are only for kids. Adult nerds like fun bedding too, which is why Sobel Westex has launched the Star Wars Home collection.

Knights of the Old Republic may still be getting a remake, but it’ll be a few years at least before that’s out. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, the 2003 original has been remastered for Nintendo Switch. The gameplay involves the Jedi master leading a group of freedom fighters across the galaxy and training them.

The remaster was handled by Aspyr, the developer that previously brought Star Wars classics like Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, Episode 1 Racer and Republic Commando to Switch and other modern consoles.

The only thing better than having a Grogu figure in your house is having one that can move and talk and play. The Galactic Snackin’ Grogu comes with a bunch of toys it can interact with, including an alien macaron and a bowl of soup to slurp on. And if it’s not interested in playing with its own toys, it will reach up and ask to be carried. These Star Wars toys are a cute addition to any collection and a great way to surprise guests.
