Happy Star Wars Day from Rallyverse!

For an “unofficial secular holiday” that’s only been around for 4 years and has largely become a thing due to good-natured social media sharing, Star Wars Day really seems to be working out.

Given what we know about the ambient levels of excitement around all things Star Wars, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that a holiday has taken off like it has, but still — there is no shortage of Star Wars celebration on the internet this morning.

With that in mind, here are some of our favorite Star Wars things on the internet today.

Perhaps we should start with the world’s largest LEGO Millennium Falcon? All 250,000 bricks strong? As far as we can tell, those are just normal people in Stormtrooper costumes and not some sort of elaborate oversized Lego statues.

We definitely got a kick of out this Star Wars cosplay roundup from the folks at Uproxx. Definitely make sure you scroll down until you get to Han Solo Cup.

If you’re given to wordplay and memes, we highly recommend checking out Star Puns. Given our broader Twitter presence, we were a bit partial to Bounty Hunter.

We know, it’s almost noon and you’ve barely made plans for Star Wars day. Don’t worry, it isn’t too late. Here’s a list of six suggestions for how you can celebrate #Maythe4th, including spending money on a silly toy.

If you’re geeking out about The Force Awakens, the team at the A.V. Club assembled a wish list of 15 things they want to see from the next installment in the series, including more real sets, less reverence about the series’ sacred cows (what is the Force actually good for besides stopping other people from using it for evil), and more of a sense of humor. Yes, sold.

Speaking of geeking out, Wired has a detailed scientific analysis of an exploding stormtrooper. Don’t worry, there are both equations and charts.

And, finally, today’s big news is the set of high-end set photos that are running in Vanity Fair, which of course offer a few new character and plot reveals.

We’ll let Bill Murray take us home:
