Think Geek has the Han Solo rug for $49 and $69 dollars which might interest the Home Theater crowd.

The only issue with Think Geek is that I know nothing about them.  Have any of you guys ever purchased anything from them?

(Picture) I got mine up last night...took less than five minutes to install.  After the photo was taken, I used a black sharpie to hide the nail heads which are visible at the top in the photo.

How does it look in person? Does it look 3d at all? How is the detail on the stitch resolution?

I think it has a 3d (ish) look and I am very pleased with it.  It did have one "line" in it that I smoothed out with my hand.  I took a picture up close (about a foot out) and here it is along with one "two or three feet back" (ignore the yellow "ring" around the image..it is not noticeable and was highlighted by the camera's flash).  Overall the rug appears to be well made and to be honest, it is better than I expected.

 

In fact, I spent the morning searching for other "rugs" similar to this just to dress up my room a bit more.

Did you get the 71" one or the 90" rug? I am debating on which one to pick up. I am thinking the 90" rug would be kind of long.

I got the small one.  Since I put it in the basement, I had to deal with duct work and it fits perfectly under the duct without covering the electrical plug directly below it.

This rug is on sale again for $40 plus $10 shipping. I've had mine on the wall for over two years and it looks just like it did when I put it up. There are more photos in the previous posts here.

I've been slowly building fabric panels in my theater, and was trying to think of something special for the back wall. The small one will fit perfectly under my projector.

Thanks @steve1106 for the heads up on the sale! Here's my Han in the back of my theater. I've got small fabric panels going in to frame the rug, which really ties the room together.
