Did it really take this long for a product designer to connect the dots between a spherical bean bag chair and the spherical Death Star? Why haven’t Death Star bean bag chairs existed since The Empire Strikes Back when the Lucasfilm marketing machine was in full swing?

At 31-inches across it should be large enough for both kids and adults to plunk down on, and the outer slip cover, featuring those wonderful Death Star graphics, is removable so you can toss it in the washing machine for easy cleaning. And even though it’s just a fabric bag filled with foam, Pottery Barn has still found a way to charge $150 for one. Who’s the real malevolent Empire here? [Pottery Barn]
