This 14″ inflatable Death Star beach ball is the perfect way to pass the time this summer. Not only does it look like it could blow up a planet, but it has impact-activated lights that twinkle as you play.

The Death Star is a deadly weapon that can destroy whole planets, but it’s all cute and happy in this Lego build by Steve Price. He created a Lego Friends version that includes a beauty salon, candy store, and even a pet shop. How can that much cute be deadly?

This Bluetooth speaker is designed to look just like the Death Star and it even lights up when in use. It measures 6″ tall x 4 1/2″ wide x 4 1/2″ deep and comes with a clear acrylic stand. This is an officially licensed Star Wars product and will wirelessly stream music from up to 30 feet away. Sadly it does not come with a working turbolaser.

You can walk all over the Imperials with this Death Star rug. This officially licensed product mesures 52″ in diameter and will make it look like the Death Star is hanging out on your living room floor.

Ain’t no party like a Star Wars party. If you want to host a spacetacular shindig that’s sure to be remembered, Etsy seller Long Legs Shop has just the decoration you need: a Death Star disco ball! The battle station never looked so shiny. It’s made from high quality mirror tiles and comes with a hook and mirror ball motor so you can attach it to your ceiling. Turnaround time for the disco ball is 1-2 weeks.

Love May the 4th? So does Caleb Kraft. To celebrate the holiday, he made a giant inflatable Death Star. He started with a 12-foot beach ball and used it to make a pattern from fabric. Basically, he made a giant pillowcase for the ball and painted it with Death Star shapes. Though it definitely looks time consuming and you’ll need space, it’s a straightforward project. You can make your own and start taking over the galaxy soon!

The architects of the Death Star and their supervisors have a lot to answer for. They left the weapon with an Achille’s Heel, and the vulnerability brought them to their knees. Sure, the galaxy was saved, but think of all the innocent lives that were lost! Dorkly imagined a letter from the dude who installed the exhaust ports, and he makes a hilarious defense for his reasoning and claims it’s not his fault. He blames the Force and ultimately turns it all back on Darth Vader.
Check out the clever letter in full after the break.
Some people see Jesus in their toast, I see the Death Star on the wall. I noticed this knot on the wall while I was having breakfast with my family at DW Diner in Merrimack, New Hampshire on Sunday morning. It was right next to me, threatening, just waiting to blast my chocolate chip waffle to bits. Thankfully it did not fire on our breakfast, although I may ask for a different table next week to avoid any Imperial entanglements.

Hold on to your Leia buns, President Obama has plans for the Death Star. Even though the White House responded with a no-go to the successful petition requesting the government build a fully operational battle station, maybe the President has changed his mind (or maybe the internet and Photoshop changed his mind for him). Either way, he looks exceptionally happy about holding the plans. Keep an eye on the sky just in case a new moon sized object starts appearing.
That’s no moon, it’s a Christmas ornament! Yes, I did have to include that in here somewhere. This LED Death Star ornament was made by craftycounterparts using a clear acrylic ball, LED tealights, clay, and a little spray paint. They’ve even posted step-by-step instructions so you can add a little Imperial touch to your tree this year.
