But if space battles are more your thing, the company is releasing two new Air Hogs sets that let you recreate the space battles from the movies.
The ultimate power in the Star Wars universe can also be the ultimate power on your kitchen counter now that the Death Star has been turned into a two-slice toaster with settings for light, dark, burnt, and Alderaan’d.
To help celebrate his three-millionth subscriber, YouTuber Colin Furze, the creator of the thermite cannon and questionably-safe hoverbike, has successfully topped all of his inventions to date by building his own miniature Death Star covered in 58 boxes of fireworks all wired together for one magnificent 20 second…
For much of its modern history, science fiction has had a particular fascination with engineering, with authors and artists imagining fantastic, massive structures in the depths of space. Here are 10 of them, from incredibly large to unbelievably massive.
Even woodworkers celebrate Star Wars day. For Frank Howarth, the project was obvious: construct a wooden Death Star.
As the weather gets nicer, it’s time to finally pause The Force Awakens and head outside for some fresh air and sunshine. That doesn’t mean you have to abandon Star Wars altogether. Not when ThinkGeek’s just revealed a wonderful kite collection full of X-Wings, Death Stars, and Droids.
An unknown breakthrough in consumer levitation technology has led to an influx of floating speakers that don’t sound any different, but look kinda cool—were this the mid-’80s. Before you write them off completely, someone has managed to find a way to make these novelties genuinely worthy of your desk space, as a tiny …
After the release of the Rogue One trailer, the internet was abuzz with theories that parts of the new Star Wars film were filmed in a London Tube station. Which is, of course, not true. Everyone knows that the Death Star has an incredibly comprehensive public transit system—possibly the best in the universe.
There’s probably a good reason—involving lawsuits and lawyers—why toymakers don’t include working superlasers on their Death Star playsets. But since Patrick Priebe doesn’t plan on selling his Death Star replica to the public, he had no qualms about including a terrifying 84-watt laser.
It’s common knowledge that Death Stars are wildly expensive weapons of mass destruction. What we didn’t know—until now—is that destroying two of them would bankrupt the Galactic Empire. Apparently Luke and his small band of Rebels didn’t crunch the numbers, either.

It’s almost impossible to grasp how much design and engineering would be required to build a space station the size of a moon. But it’s probably still easier than navigating a tiny metal ball through the twists, ramps, and other obstacles inside this Death Star Perplexus maze.
Opening your oven to find a tray of burnt brownies isn’t quite as devastating as learning that your home planet was destroyed—but it’s pretty close. So instead of wiping out worlds, this Death Star kitchen timer counts down to when it’s time to yank something out of the oven.
When the ultimate weapon in the galaxy—even one that’s far, far away—is casting a soft glow on your slumbers, how could you possible have a bad night’s sleep? A Death Star night light will not only keep the Rebellion out of your dreams, but also the bogie man and that monster living under your bed.
Who of us hasn’t lamented the fact that a late night trip to the beach for an evening swim can never include a beach ball for fear of it going missing in the dark? The folks at Swim Ways obviously have, because they stuck a motion-activated LED inside this inflatable Death Star beach ball so it’s visible all night…
