Spaceship Earth At Epcot Turned Into Death Star With Working Super Laser

In a nutshell, the soon-to-hit-theater Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is about how the Rebel sniffed out Death Star’s weakness that lead up to Luke and the gang destroying it in A New Hope and so, what could be a better way to promote the movie than recreating a Death Star right here on Planet Earth? Ok, technically, Death Star is a lot bigger than Earth could hold, but anyways, here it is, the Spaceship Earth at Epcot, transformed to look like the giant Death Star – complete with the much feared planet obliterating Super Laser – the main arsenal of the moon-size space station.

“Fairly Simple” Wood Turned Bamboo Death Star Will Blow Your Mind

Do you know why LEGO Death Star is impressive? Because it is formed by the pieces and do you know what makes Frank Howarth’s wooden Death Star equally, if not more impressive? Because it was handcrafted, a piece at a time. Sure, Frank could have machine or hand turn an orb out from a single wooden block, but he did not. Instead, he pieced them together with individual wood pieces hand cut by his skilled hands. Frank described himself as a father, husband who has keen interest in architecture “at a small scale” and expressed them through woodworking and film making. In short, Frank is an expert when it comes to wood. Continue reading “Fairly Simple” Wood Turned Bamboo Death Star Will Blow Your Mind

Death Star Fire Pit Is What Death Star Will Look Like If It Catches Fire

To be honest, I am not 100 percent sure what this fiery pit of Death Star does, but it looks pretty rad to us, regardless. Certainly, you are not going to BBQ over this rusty thing, right? And it wouldn’t make sense if it is for warmth, cos’ you probably feel warmer indoor. Like I said, it is super cool, nonetheless. Despite how cool it is too be able to set the “planet-size” space station on fire, you can’t actually buy this particular example. Apparently, this is a product of a high school welding class and somehow, it ended up in an auction and someone won it.

This Death Star Bluetooth Speaker Can Playback More Than Imperial March

Death Star is a nasty faux Moon that is capable of obliterating smaller planets to oblivion. It basically spells death and hence the name. However, this Death Star here is a miniature replica that will do a lot less harm than the actual thing. In fact, it is one Death Star that both Imperial fanatics and rebels could love (or maybe not), as it does not include the fearsome, takes forever to power up, Concave Dish Composite Beam Superlaser. Instead, it is designed to pump out 3W of mono audio, fed either wirelessly via Bluetooth connectivity (supports Bluetooth 1.1, 1.2, 2.0, as well as 2.1+EDR enabled devices) or through the standard 3.5mm audio out jack.

Death Star Owner’s Technical Manual

looking up to the sky, we suspect that no one needs this book because none of us owns a Death Star, but if you so happen to own one (clever you for keeping it so secretive the whole time), then you probably need the Death Star Owner’s Technical Manual: Imperial DS-1 Orbital Battle Station (Haynes, ISBN 978-08041766143) conceived by car maintenance manual publisher Haynes and of course, Lucas Books. instead of telling you how to build one, this 128-page hardcover book traces the beginning of the deadliest star in the galaxy far, far away and details the spherical spaceship’s onboard systems and controls, along with drool-worthy illustrations, floor plans, cutaways, as well as exploded diagrams – all newly created by artists Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. btw, Chris and Chris are also the same dudes behind the Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual, while the text comes courtesy of Ryder Windham, who is no strange to writing Star Wars books.

Death Star Wall Tiles by Tom Spina Designs

we don’t need to reiterated how building a Death Star is never going to be economically viable – even if all the world economy comes together. so let just say that these Death Star Wall Tiles by Tom Spina Designs will be your best bet in getting the Death Star look you so desires, sans the planet-obliterating superlaser, but the good news is, there won’t any trenches for that nasty prick Luke to do the trench run too. so you are safe on the dark side for now. the concept of creating the various individual tiles to form the “landscape” of the Death Star started with Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) when the shoot calls for closeup of the Death Star and by having them as separate tiles, it allows the filmmaker the flexibility to mix and match them for the effect the set requires. anyway, that’s just the back story.
