You call Marty McFly's hoverboard a movie prop? Nahhh.... this is a movie prop. The Tie Fighter that dinged Vader's own craft, sending him spinning out of the Death Star trench? Yes, the very same, from the original Star Wars movie. It could be yours, if you take part in an Ebay Hollywood auction scheduled for Thursday. And, of course, if you have around US$170,000 lying around—and probably a bit more too, as the estimated price goes to US$200,000. The 17-inch high resin, plastic and metal model comes with a letter of authenticity from effects wiz Richard Edlund, and two shooting reports describing its use in the film. It's legit, it seems. Hmmm.... sports car/tie fighter, sports car/tie fighter. Tricky choice. [Ebay via Geekologie]

While arguably not that long ago, it certainly was a time where Electric Vehicles (EVs) were far more removed from the minds of Aussie drivers. In 2019 EVs are a more common part of the driver conversation, to the point where they were even politicsed in the lead up to the recent election. There isn't a better time for the second generation of the Leaf to hit our shores. Not only is it one of the more mainstream EVs available in the market, it has one of the more palatable price tags attached to it. Also, its wild ePedal makes you feel like you're cutting sick on Rainbow Road.
