Halloween Speeder Bikes in Manhattan

Source: Time

YouTube vloggers Jesse Wellens and Carmella Rose dressed up as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, but not in their classic Star Wars garb. Instead, they dressed as Luke and Leia as rebels zipping through the forest world of Endor from The Return of the Jedi and the only thing missing was an Ewok or two.

While that retro costume would certainly rate well with Star Wars fans, Wellens and Rose had a plan to put their costume over the top. With a little help from some friends at Lithium Cycles, they built a replica of a Speeder Bike that looked like it was actually floating and rode it through the streets of Manhattan. The sight was exhilarating enough that even wizened, seen-it-all New Yorkers couldn’t help but gawk.

The entire escapade was captured on video by YouTube prankster Casey Neistat, who has teamed up with Wellens before for Halloween pranks like Aladdin and Silver Surfer taking magic carpet rides through the city. Watch Neistat’s video to see how the custom Star Wars Speeder Bike was built.

Arya battles Brienne with lightsabers in new fan mashup

Source: ScreenRant

Star Wars meets Game of Thrones in a new fan mash-up video that adds lightsabers to the epic sword battle between Arya and Brienne in season 7, episode 4, ‘The Spoils of War’. YouTube user Omid G posted the below mash-up video that adds a Star Wars spin to Game of Thrones by putting lightsabers in the hands of Arya Stark and her sister Sansa’s one-time protector Brienne of Tarth.

In the episode, Arya spots Brienne training Podrick in sword fighting technique in the courtyard at Winterfell, and decides to challenge Brienne herself. At first it seems unlikely that tiny Arya will have any chance against towering Brienne and her powerful sword-strokes, but as we’ve learned again-and-again, it’s never wise to underestimate Arya. In the sequence, the young Stark woman shows off all the moves she’s learned over the years from all her instructors, including the late lamented Syrio Forel and the still-living (and now beyond-the-wall-bound) The Hound – who was himself once beaten by Brienne – finally besting Brienne by whipping out the dagger given to her by Bran after he got it from Littlefinger.
