Measuring in at just 4″ in diameter, Royal Selangor’s pewter Death Star is a 1:1,600,000 scale replica of the Empire’s deadly space station. But rather than exploding when you hit its exhaust port, this one splits in two, so you can store small trinkets inside — a very special collectible for serious Star Wars fans.
Awesome Death Star
That’s no moon, it’s a coffee cup! Silver Buffalo’s Star Wars coffee mug looks just like the Death Star – assuming you squished it a bit, cut off its top, and slapped on a handle. The oversize 20 oz. ceramic mug has more vulnerabilities than just its exhaust port though, as it’s not dishwasher- or microwave-safe.
Beyond the Brick shows off one of the most epic LEGO Star Wars builds ever. Anthony Ducre spent 7 months on this 50,000 piece diorama of the Death Star trench run from A New Hope, including an X-Wing fighter that “flies” through it on a track with Vader’s TIE Fighter on its tail. The crashed UCS Super Star Destroyer is a nice touch.
Artist Pete Betcher of The BKPK Shop makes all kinds of cool and geeky objects for the home. Among them is this illuminated wall art which looks like a modernist Death Star. It’s made from baltic birch plywood and acrylic, and casts cool shadows onto the wall around it. Measures 11″ across, and takes a 40w candelabra bulb.
One thing that’s always bothered us about science fiction is how we see these enormous, futuristic constructions, and never see how they get built. Thanks to Isaac and Benjamin Botkin, here’s a look at how the ultimate power in the universe might have been assembled.
As you can tell by their accents, the Imperials love tea time. ThinkGeek commissioned a weapon that annihilates productivity in the name of that sacred tradition. This ceramic set consists of a 12oz teapot and 6oz mug that can be stacked to look like the Death Star.
Instructables contributor MariaK64 shows us how to transform a IKEA PS 2014 pendant lamp into an exploding Death Star with nothing more than paint, masking tape, and some artistic skill. But instead of firing at the exhaust port, simply pull the cord to blow it to bits.
