Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter Is Real And Was Created In Germany

Dangerous leaders seem to come from Germany. Of course, we’re referring to Darth Vader, one of the top generals of the Empire.


Here’s an exact 1:2 replica of Darth Vader’s recognizable battle ship (the one used in the battle of the Death Star, at the end of Episode IV) created by Proect X1 Props, a German team that is absolutely incredible.



Designing, building and creating the whole project costed about $20,000 USD, and required a bit over 1,000 man hours to bring this to its completion. Makes you wanna build one from scratch on your backyard, huh?

Fans can see the Tie Fighter from July 26th onwards at the STAR WARS – Celebration Europe in Messe Essen, Germany.


You can see a video featuring the Tie Fighter itself just below these lines. Enjoy!
