Dad Constructs Enormous Death Star to Entertain His Children

Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres on December 14th in Los Angeles and predicted to smash box office records. As you might expect, science-fiction fans are anxiously waiting to see the next installment in the franchise. Additionally, the plot and character development has been kept relatively secret, which means the movie’s narrative is still a mystery. Nevertheless, to mark this momentous occasion, super-fan Colby Powell recently started a project to build a fully operational Death Star.

The final piece measures 23 feet in diameter and looks phenomenal. Even more unbelievable, 162 Geohubs, 18 cans of paint and 2,000 feet of 1/2 inch PVC was used to create this mammoth sculpture. The creator went to extreme lengths to finish the construction and even hired a large crane. When powered on, the Death Star glows in a menacing manner and monitors the universe for its next target. Either the universe, or a cluttered house in Lafayette (same thing right?).

Clearly, the Death Star is built just in time for the latest movie. Perhaps, there’s a TV inside to watch Star Wars while on the look out for Rebel traitors. In all seriousness, this is a wonderful project and it’s fantastic to see the final result.

Are you looking forward to the new Star Wars movie?
