    Is it really sad that a 60 years old man (me) has bought a Star Wars Death Star that is  a planetarium?

    I think brian is referring to this cool Uncle Milton toy:

    Nice geeky purchase, Brian…pity it doesnt have any optional Darth sidious or vader voice narrative that would made it even more awesome then it already is!

     

    I do have a toy planetarium (National Geographic brand) which I did enjoy for a few nights soon after purchasing it a year ago.  It has two globes, one for the stars/constellations at night and the other a solar system display.  The solar system has a nice voice over narrative tour while in another mode it would play music which is supposed to be soothing but its actually irritating coming off a bit screechy.  Then I got bored with the thing and stored it away.  But if it looked like Brian’s Death star then it would have been on my display shelf!

     

    I am looking for another interactive R2D2 unit that can project a holographic view of our solar system 🙂  Brian, let me know if you come across one as lately, my one moans all day and refuses to playback the Princess Leia message.

    That the one Tej.  It will be on the shelf along with my TARDIS, USS Enterprise, Klingon Battle Cruiser and Destroyer droid.
