Yes, This Death Star Grill Can Be Yours for Under $150

Darth Vader wasn't exactly known for throwing excellent backyard barbecues in his day, but a new charcoal grill designed to look like the infamous, planet-destroying Death Star might just tempt you to join the Dark Side this summer -- or at the very least, the medium-dark side. 

The stainless steel grill retails for £99.99 (roughly $142) and is currently available for pre-order from online retailer The Fowndry. Although the officially licensed Star Wars grill admittedly doesn't come equipped with a goddamn Superlaser, the product's description promises enough power to "... annihilate an entire chicken. Or, in the right hands, cook an al fresco feast in classic, sci-fi style." It stands a little bit shorter than R2-D2 (but taller than BB-8) and includes a heatproof handle and an adjustable thermal vent disguised as the devastating laser.

Let's just hope it doesn't have that whole thermal exhaust port vulnerability issue...
