Death Star Infographic

death-star-1

In the original Star Wars Trilogy, there is no greater weapon in the Imperial armory than the Death Star.

The size of a small moon, the Death Star look imposing but has a far deadlier threat than just the soldiers it can transport. As shown in the films, it could blow up entire planets with one shot from the immense power put forth by its “super-laser” (look it up, that’s what it is actually called!)

Frankly, it is a shame the Empire had to lose not just one, but two feats of engineering to the pesky Rebel Alliance.

Car Insurance Guide, in partnership with Geeks are Sexy, decided to collaborate and create the ultimate Death Star infographic with everything we know about how it was built, its specifications and its staffing and equipment requirements.

Be sure to check it out after the jump!

Awesome Life Size Tie Interceptor

tie copy2

The Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando Florida, that is where I’m heading this week! Do you know why? To steal a life sized Tie Fighter Interceptor! Now it makes one wonder, I how the hell to you transport that replica from site to site? Does it breakdown into 3 big pieces? Like, 2 wings and the cockpit? Does it need an 18 wheeler to transport? Anyhow..The most important question is; what would you do if you had one? I would climb into it, and pretend I was had just commandeered the vessel from a pilot I just slashed with my lightsabre and now I’m using the speed and agility of the interceptor to make my escape from a star destroyer!
