This homemade Death Star is so cool, even Luke Skywalker wouldn’t destroy it.
Colby Powell, who lives in Lafayette, California, is a huge "Star Wars" fan and so are his kids. So for Halloween and in honor of the upcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" movie, the fan took his love for the series to new heights. He built a giant light-up Death Star and plopped it on top of his house for the holiday.
The mind-blowing creation, which he documented in a YouTube video, ended up being 23 feet in diameter, and about 400 pounds of pure awesomeness, according to the clip.
Powell, who works for a contractor, told Make that the project started out as a family affair with his kids, but quickly escalated as the decoration became so large. About two dozen kind people offered to lend him a hand and helped create the "deadly" space station.
The project used a plethora of materials to put together, including a whopping 2,000 feet of PVC pipe and 18 cans of paint, the video noted.
Of course, for the finishing touch, the Death Star was lifted onto the house with a crane. Yes, a crane.
The Death Star is expected to stay up until sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to Make.
After that, we can only hope Powell builds a giant Millennium Falcon.
