Confirm Your Star Wars Nerdness..

Now you too can relive your favorite laser brain’s worst nightmare (sort of) by having yourself encased in carbonite (sort of).  Have $50?  Send it to artist Paul Pape and let him do the rest.  Paul will take any picture of you and mold it into something that resembles Han Solo in his carbonite slumber.  Heck, you even get to choose your favorite pose (we are thinking the Heisman, with the Han Solo terror face of course).  The “Carbonite” is made out a combination of plastic and Super Sculpey but still looks pretty cool.
