Star Wars Death Star II Fire Pit

Redditor Bandia5309’s 84-year-old grandfather created a Death Star II fire pit over the Christmas holiday and it’s amazing!

The fire pit was based on the incomplete – yet fully armed and operational – second Death Star seen in 1983’s Return Of The Jedi, the final Star Wars film of the original trilogy.

Check out the photos of the fire pit here below.

Darth Vader In The Death Star

Director J.J. Abrams has made it a hobby to leave little nods and hints in images and videos he’s posted on the Bad Robot Twitter feed, that may or may not indicate things we might see in Star Wars: Episode VII.

In one of the latest images posted—a simple handwritten note making a joke about the new watch Apple just announced recently—Star Wars fans will recognize a very familiar pattern in the background.

Check out the image below.

‘Star Wars’: An Open Letter From A Death Star Architect About That Vulnerable Exhaust Port

Star Wars Death Star Trench Run

If you’re a fan of Star Wars, then you’re likely familiar with the Death Star, the space station and planet destroyer constructed by the Empire. In 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope, the Rebel Alliance obtains the technical readout for the station and discovers a flaw in its design that they could exploit — all it would take is for one of their X-Wing fighters to make a precise hit with proton torpedoes into the Death Star’s two-meters-wide thermal exhaust port. Thankfully, the Alliance had a new hot shot pilot named Luke Skywalker who used to bullseye womp rats in his T-16 on his home world of Tatoonine, and as we all know, womp rats aren’t much bigger than two meters, so piece of cake!

Of course, Luke hits the targets and blows up the massive Death Star. But for years now, people have wondered how such a design flaw could have made it into this technologically advanced super-powered weapon of mass destruction. Now, one of the Death Star’s architects — namely who was the person responsible for the exhaust ports on the space station — is speaking out and he wants everyone to know, it wasn’t his fault!

Check out Death Star architect Dak Exhaustport‘s open letter here below.

Limited Edition Star Wars Death Star Soccer Ball

The design of the Death Star from Star Wars lends itself to a lot of things, like teaballs, ornaments, and more.

Now, you can get this technological terror as a soccer ball over at Think Geek, which is currently selling the Death Star Soccer Ball for only $29.99.

Of course, this item is just too good to be true – this is an extremely limited edition item, so grab it now while it’s still available, because once it sells out, it’s gone forever.

Death Star

The U.S. Government has recently instituted a process by which citizens can officially petition the White House on any issue that they feel is important via the internet, thanks to a program called We the People. Any petition that receives 25,000 signatures within a certain time frame will receive an official response from the White House.

Now, this is a great way for ordinary people to bring their everyday issues to the forefront and is a great example of what technology can do right. However, it’s also the internet, which means there are going to be a lot of goofy petitions started. This brings us to a petition that was started requesting the government to “secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016”!

Doom Digest

Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.

Today: Death Star tea ball and moon shirt, Marvel’s Avengers cast with everyday heroes at the Tribeca Film Festival, a Syfy-style Hungry Hungry Hippos horror movie trailer, and Star Trek silk screen prints, plus some Bits Of Doom.
