Though there have been plenty of Star Wars-inspired PCs over the decades, it begs the question "why has no-one thought to encase a computer in a planet-destroying space station before?"

Thankfully the unique geeks at Cherry Tree realised there was a niche to be filled and have designed the ultimate power in the office space - just in time to be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con.

While the the exact specs of the one they'll be releasing to market have yet to be made public, you can be sure that it'll have more processing power than the computers ILM used to generate the trench run graphics. Cherry Tree have shared that their PC can be configured to run up to a 9th Gen i9-9900K 8 Core 3.6GHz, 32GB of RAM, M.2 NVMe up to 2TB and GeForce RTX 2070 Mini ITX 8GB graphics card. The case will have storage for two 2.5" hard drives and an optional 1080p supported pico projector can be fitted to the laser dish!

"Being avid fans of the Star Wars saga and passionate about creating exciting technology integrations, we created a line of 'Death Star' inspired personal computers,”said Martin Roth, CEO of CherryTree Inc. "These technological terrors are powerful machines that can be used as a gaming computer or your everyday PC. Any true Star Wars fan will appreciate taking home their own personal Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate battle station."

The Star Wars Death Star Personal Computer will be available in the US and Canada, with pre-orders being taken from July 18th, 2019. Pre-orders can be made online at or in-person at SDCC at Booth 2913-C inside the Star Wars pavilion. Pre-orders will begin shipping after Black Friday weekend.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
