That is no moon! 9 cool looking products featuring the Death Star

As many companies try to keep on milking the Star Wars saga by coming up with more and more merchandise, once in a while they do come up with cool looking stuff. By cool looking I mean that it looks good on the websites and I have absolutely no idea if they work as good as they say they do.

There are hundreds and hundreds of products featuring Star Wars, but this time I’m only focusing on the Death Star, the coolest (and probably most fragile) space station ever!

Soccer Ball

This is obviously no moon! I mean, you can kick it, so you’ve got to be at least as big as Unicron or Galactus to attempt such a feat of foot work.

This is a Star Wars Celebration Europe II (2013) exclusive, so that means it’s probably limited to a certain number of copies. I bet it’s probably going to be nearly gone by the time I finish posting this, that’s how fast I am.

You can get it right here.

Tea Infuser

It looks like the dark side offers more than cookies; they also offer tea. Vader could use a relaxing cup of tea, I mean, he’s always so angry and disturbed all the time that he loses his limbs over every little things, like his master turning against him.

This is an official Star Wars collectible made of stainless steal, so you can let the tea flow through you.

You can get it here.

Transformers Darth Vader/Death Star

Hasbro’s Transformers Darth Vader/Death Star

A few years ago Hasbro came up with this cool-yet-weird monstrosity. As a Transformers fan I found it weird that, from all things it could have transformed into, they decided to go with Darth Vader, I mean, Unicron is a bastardized copy-turned-into-awesome of the Death Star, so why Vader? But then, it’s really cool looking because it’s Darth freaking Vader.

In any case, it’s an impressive display of something that I bet takes a lot of effort to transform, especially after reading the reviews.

 

death-star-bottle-openerMagnetic Bottle Opener

Fashioned after the fearsome Imperial battlestation from Star Wars Episode IV, this fully armed and operational bottle opener fits in the palm of your hand, and the small exhaust port opens bottles with ease.

The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of applied force. It’s just too bad it doesn’t come with a high powered laser to obliterate the cap in blaze of fiery inferno. Or maybe it’s a good thing? Anyway, get it here.

 death-star-plushSuper Deformed Plush

I find your lack of plushiness disturbing. Imagine being able to hug the ultimate power in the galaxy! I don’t get how this is “super deformed,” I mean, it’s round!

In any case, it’s a cute and squeezable version of the same vehicle capable of destroying Alderaan, and without the disadvantage of that pesky exhaust port. Just so you know, plushies have no exhaust ports.

Get it here.

 

death-star-cookie-jarCeramic Cookie Jar

Nothing like using the most powerful force in the galaxy to safeguard your precious cookies from rebel scum.

What I like about this one is the fact that’s it’s not cheap plastic. It measures 12 x12 inches, and it’s impossible to penetrate (if you know what I mean); that is, as long as nobody aims at the exhaust port… Sadly, the laser cannon has been out of commission ever since it was destroyed during the battle of Endor.

Anyway, this one is hard to find now, but you might be able to find it here.

Death-Star-Ice-TraySilicone ice/chocolate tray

The coolest thing about this product is the fact you can brag about your ice balls, if you know what I mean. Based on its appearance in Star Wars: A New Hope, it’s freezer and oven resistant, so it can be used for many more things besides ice or chocolate.

From the reviews, it seems it has a bit of a learning curve, but in all honesty, all novelty sylicon trays take some time getting used to. This has to be the best review there: ” …if you fill the mold up with just a little too much water, you’ll end up with an nipple coming out of the hole that you filled it through. It looks like an ice-booby. Hehehe.

deathstar1Planetarium

The Death Star Planetarium is one of those products that look good and sound like a good idea at first; until you actually get one. According to the reviews, it’s a really nice looking piece of memorabilia, but the light bulbs go out fast and there seems to be a lot of sets with missing replacements bulbs, or the bulbs at all.

To make things worse, it seems they are almost impossible to get. Kind of makes me wonder why the makers of this product went with proprietary bulbs if they weren’t going to sell the replacements as well. It’s too bad, the pictures make this look really awesome.

 

lego-10188-star-wars-death-starLEGO Star Wars Death Star (10188)

Probably the motherload of all LEGO Star Wars sets. Unlike the other ones, this one includes a ton of regular and exclusive minifigures and droids, including Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Stormtrooper outfits.

Also, this thing is huge; it measures 16” (41cm) tall and 16½” (42cm) wide, and it has many rooms, you could pretty much reenact everything that ever happened inside both versions of the Death Star!

I could safely say this Death Star set is probably the best Star Wars set they have ever come up with (yet). I really doubt they can top this one, though with awesomeness comes price, but what would you expect when it comes with so many minifigures.

If I missed something really spectacular that I should’ve known about drop me a line in the comments.
