Top Tip.
Galactic Overlords. To avoid suspicion and unwanted destructive attention, don’t call your new planet killing machine ‘Death Star’. Build a smiley into the design and call it ‘Happy Moon’ or something instead.
Plus, don't give it one fatal flaw such as an open shaft, into which, one shot from a well aimed pea-shooter will set off a chain reaction destroying the whole Happy Moon.

Even the local nuns wear Jedi Nun masks.

A rocky outcrop off the coast of Kerry that starred in two Star Wars films has transformed the tourism scene in south-west Ireland.

Star Wars fans have been flocking to Skellig Michael, a sheer-sided island 12 miles off the Wild Atlantic Way, and other Kerry sites, since they featured in the two latest movies in the franchise, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. The World Heritage site was inhabited by monks from around the 6th century for about 500 years, with residents living in stone beehive-shaped huts in a monastery clinging to the cliff faces on the 714ft (218m) high rock. Publican Gerard Kennedy, who runs the Moorings guesthouse in Portmagee, said the village had been transformed by the interest generated by Star Wars.

Yes, perhaps it's time to stop playing with Star Wars dolls when you're 50 y.o.

;)
I wonder if Guinness World Record holder Steve Sansweet has continued collecting the newer stuff for his Rancho Obi Wan?
