We’ve covered our fair share of electric bikes and transportation here at 9to5Toys. And you can find even more at our sister-site Electrek. Although interest is rapidly increasing here in the United States, the idea of going purely electric in any area of our lives still seems largely intimidating for some.

Thankfully, new projects are popping up each day that make that transition friendlier than ever before. The latest of which comes from Germany’s Mellow Boards. This customizable electric skateboard system can be added to an existing deck or purchased as a pre-assembled longboard. With its arguably affordable price point and modern design, Mellow Boards is set to take off.

Update (10/28 8:00am): Amazon, as a part of its Gold Box Deals of the Day, offers the Sherlock Limited Edition Blu-ray set with seasons 1-3 for $99.99 (Reg. $135).

Amazon is currently offering a few nice deals on complete series collections of popular TV shows. Personally, I prefer to own the entire collection on Blu-ray as opposed to digital.

Up first is That 70’s Show The Complete Series on Blu-ray for $59.99 shipped. Also available at Best Buy. That’s as much as $80 off the list price and the lowest that we’ve seen for this pre-order that is set to ship next week. If the price drops ahead of the ship date, Amazon will credit your account with the difference. This collection includes all 200 episodes across eight seasons in HD.

Star Wars announces new Team Deathmatch mode for Battlefront, pre-order discounts available

Update (8/3 3:00pm): Star Wars has also released another quick teaser of upcoming gameplay modes, this time highlighting Fighter Squadron.

Star Wars Battlefront is coming this fall and we couldn’t be more excited. Today, EA lifted the veil on a new gameplay mode called Blast. This Team Deathmatch style option pits Rebel vs Imperial in 10 person teams. It’s all out battle until one team reaches 100 kills or whomever has the most at the end of ten minutes. There will be weapons and other tools like turrets and Drone scanners hiding throughout the map to pick up and use during battle.

Game designer Dennis Brännvall promises intense action on custom made levels for Blast. These layouts will differ from traditional maps on multiplayer and co-op. He explains further:

“One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust. In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth. My favorite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler.”

Star Wars Battlefront is set to launch on November 17th. Amazon is currently offering a pre-order discount to Prime members, dropping the final price down to $55, while the Deluxe version can be had for $63Gamers Club Unlocked Members at Best Buy can save 20% on pre-orders knocking the total to $48 plus a $10 gift card.
