CAFFEINE IS THE EMPIRE’S NEW ULTIMATE WEAPON
Look – the Death Star is a planet-killing armored space station of doom. We get that. We’ve watched the movie… a lot. It’s just that when you see the Death Star all dolled up as a teapot/mug set, pouring out hot steaming caffeine instead of lasers, it kinda seems adorable instead of super murdery. Even Luke Skywalker wouldn’t have had a bad feeling about approaching this Death Star.
Which isn’t to say that this is your average ceramic teapot and mug. We got a princess to smuggle us the secret plans for this Death Star pot, and then asked our resident science-monkeys to take a look. From what we can tell this is not only a high-quality ceramic replica of the Empire’s Ultimate Weapon, it’s also a nestled set – it pulls apart to reveal a 12 oz. teapot on top, which can then be poured into the cute little 6 oz. mug base. The real Death Star only came apart if you managed to hit a womp rat-sized target, which took an elaborate space battle to accomplish. Yet another reason why we’ll take this teapot version over the real Death Star any day. Unless the Empire is just pandering to our caffeine-addictions now….
