This Star Wars TIE Fighter Costs Less Than an iPad!

You may never be able to join the Galactic Empire, but that shouldn't stop you from checking out this replica TIE Fighter from Star Wars. Currently , this DIY spacecraft is a one-third scale replica of an Imperial TIE Fighter from the original Star Wars trilogy.

The best part? It's only $150. The worst part? It doesn't fly.

Measuring in at eight-feet wide and eight-feet high, this homemade starfighter has built-in wheels so you can move it around easily, and it can even carry one passenger. If that isn't enough to excite the Star Wars geek in you, how about this: it comes with working cannons. Sure, it doesn't fire lasers, but it can fire party poppers; this makes it less menacing, but keep in mind, you're only spending $150 here.

If you're in the Seattle area, this may be worth checking out, especially considering the plywood starfighter can be broken down into five pieces for easy shipping.
