That’s no battle station. It’s an ice sphere – in the shape of the Death Star
Okay, we think all of you “Star Wars” fans out there will love this product. Do you remember being impressed when the Death Star appeared in the very first “Star Wars” movie accompanied by Obi Wan Kenobi’s famous words, “That’s no moon. It’s a space station!”? Well, now you can create your own Death Star – from ice.
The product is actually a silicone ice tray in the shape of the Death Star and will be coming out from plastic figure and model maker Kotobukiya in August.
The tray is made of two semi-spherical shaped parts which are combined and then filled with water to create an ice Death Star. The silicone tray recreates the original Death Star in the first “Star Wars” movie (“Episode IV: A New Hope”) in quite some detail, including its powerful weapon – the Super Laser - so it’s bound to appeal to fans of the movie. And even if you’re not a big “Star Wars” fan, it certainly would make a fun gift, and Death Star ice is sure to be a hit at parties.
The tray measures 70 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm in size and will be sold at a price of 1,050 yen. Death Star ice may not give you the power of the Force, but it most definitely will keep you cool and entertained in the coming summer months.
