Star Wars

That’s No Moon…

ds-ping-2-580x435Gaze upon this to truly understand the extent to which Star Wars fans will go to express their love for the iconic science fantasy series. This isn’t a million dollar prop from LucasArts: It’s a plain old ping pong ball transformed into the spitting image of the half-destroyed Death Star, as seen in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Want to make one of your own? (Really? Masochist!) The anonymous Japanese artist responsible for the Death Pong has detailed the process behind its creation at this website, but unless you read Japanese (or have a lot of faith in Google Translate) then you’ll have to make do with pictures.
