How cool would it be to have your dad build a Star Wars replica as a playhouse in your backyard – – only to find out that you can play with it for a few weeks before it gets given away??!!
Inventor and YouTube personality Colin Furze teamed up with eBay, and built a replica of the fictional cargo carrier in his own backyard. It only took Colin and a team of builders a few weeks to create this massive structure – – featuring a motorized drop-down staircase, comfortable seating and switches that operate the replica’s head and “guns”. (FYI: ALL materials used to make this beast were purchased on eBay!!)
In a few weeks, the playhouse will be given to a Star Wars fan – – whose parents have a big enough backyard for this 18-foot high Imperial Beast!
Sorry there, Colin Furze’s children – – you’ll have to go back to playing on the rusty swing set after that!!
This video gives you an idea of how it was created:
