Every geek worth his salt remebers the torpedo which Luke Skywalker used to destroy the Death Star of the Evil Empire. Now, here is your chance to build your own Death Star of the Star Wars movies.

You are now a weapons engineer and the responsibility for the completion of the Empire’s ultimate weapon has fallen on you. Some of you might ask, what is the full form of Death Star or why the name Death Star. Well, the project is officially known as the Expeditionary Battle Planetoid Development Initiative but the Ministry of Propaganda like to call it “Death Star”.

The 5 attributes needed for your Death Star are

    *  Power Output – The energy output of the station’s reactors
    * Firepower – The destructive potential of the station
    * Defense – The station’s protection against capital and fighter craft assault
    * Personnel Capacity – The station’s habitability and crew capacity
    * Naval Capacity – The extent of the station’s harbors and docking bays

The Rise of Silver Surfer, Fantastic FourThe Silver Surfer’s is easily one of the greatest villain-to-hero epics in the Marvel universe.he trailer debuted over the weekend with Night at the Museum; it won’t make it online in beautiful Quicktime/HD until Fox releases it, probably sometime this week.

The Rise of the Silver Surfer continues the adventures of the Fantastic Four. The release date for this movie is set for June 15th 2007.

Based Upon: This is the sequel to the 2005 superhero hit, Fantastic Four, which was of course based upon the long-running Marvel Comics title once subtitled “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine.” Specifically, the premise of this movie is loosely based upon “The Coming of Galactus” in FF #48-50 (1966), which introduced the cosmic characters of the Silver Surfer and Galactus. This movie may also pave the way for a future spin-off movie for The Silver Surfer, whose own movie adaptation has been in development nearly as long as the Fantastic Four’s has been.

Premise of the Rise of the Silver Surfer: “The Fantastic Four meets their greatest challenge yet [as] the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.” (quoted from official premise)
