By K. Weber on January 20, 2011
Yet another inferior quality "toy" unscrupulously pushed onto 2nd generation Star Wars fans! Just like any action figure produced in the last 10 years, (Y'know, the ones that can't stand up or hold any weapon!) the expectations far exceeded the result. I swear that more design and thought goes into the packaging and marketing of the Lucasverse than any actual play value. It seems that every modern Star Wars product is really just supposed to be displayed in the box. Once you take it out to use it, you see it for the piece of crap that it truly is.

I disagree with some of the reviewers who are complaining about blurriness. It's a tiny circle shining light in a big square room. Unless your kid bunks under a low dome, of course it's going to be blurry in spots. On the bright side, half of the Star Wars galaxy map simply says "Unknown Regions," so you don't even have to look at that side of the room! Whether the other dome actually projects "Earth's sky" is up for debate. It just looks like a bunch of evenly spaced dots to me without any labels or supporting materials. I'd love to find out if there is actually any accuracy in the placement of those 'stars.' Well, I would, but it doesn't really matter since this product is now useless after just 3 nights.

Firstly, the 2 light bulbs and 2 screws that came with it were so tiny that they were almost lost in the packaging. The 4 pieces were wrapped so tight into a tiny taped bundle no more than 3/4" long and 1/4" wide. I had thought they were not included after my son tore open the packaging, but later found them across the room. It just looked like a tiny piece of plastic bag.

The first of those two bulbs burnt out the first night. And I mean burnt. It was totally black inside.

We bought this item partly as a gift and partly as a cake topper for our son's birthday cake. It couldn't have been more perfect. It saved me from a ton of detail work on fondant and our son couldn't be more thrilled with this in his room. He has had a fear of the dark and this is the perfect way to fix it. He thinks it is "the best thing ever" to have the Death Star in his room. He sleeps so much better now.
I was nervous after reading some of the other reviews but we are totally happy with our purchase and have loved it.

I came here primarily looking for a solution to the bulb issue. I was not able to find the correct bulb, which is a mini halogen, BUT since its the holiday season I was able to mcguyver a workaround. I pulled an LED bulb from one of my christmas strands, and while the prongs are a little long, it fits and lights up just as bright as the stock. If this fails I'll post a follow-up, but it appeared to work pretty well.

The halogen burns out for 2 reasons .. one those little halogens get extremely hot and that's an enclosed unit. Secondly, any contaminents will cause it to overheat. Basically if you use bare hands and don't clean the bulb with alcohol after installation, its contaminated.

So, as far as the toy itself? My 9 year old son thinks its the coolest thing ever. It's about the quality you would expect from a $20 toy and its a map of the star wars galaxy. So I think its cool. Pain to put together as others have mentioned. But it is unique and something that lights up a kids room at nights ... kinda like walking around a city, gives them a reason to look up for a change.

So yeah if you buy it just go ahead and find some replacement LED christmas bulbs and use those instead and save yourself some hassle down the road.

I bought this for my two older boys (8 & 6) because they love Star Wars and are interested in stars and planets. Its a cool idea except if you don't have a perfect 12X12 room, its a waste of money. All the walls need to be flat. No windows, closets, ect. The stars and planets are very blury. Almost too hard to read. The batteries run out after an hour or so as well. They didn't play with it again after the first night.

This globe provides a low-quality projection of both the "real" night sky and an imagined Star Wars night sky. Rooms larger than approximately 10 by 10 ft will result in out of focus stars. Nonetheless, I found that my oldest (7 years) boy was quite captivated and invested quite a bit of time exploring all the sky features he could recognize. So, in the spectrum of scientifically-inspiring toys for kids, I would rate this one as reasonably effective.

If I could give this negative stars, I would. Where do I start? This overpriced piece of garbage is small, poorly made and an overall waste of time and money. The fact that they slapped the "Star Wars" logo on it and billed it as an educational toy should only add to the manufacturer's shame for trying to peddle this pile of crap. It comes with an LED bulb that you have to install yourself. They gave you a spare, because of you're really lucky, you may not mangle both of them. I got one of them in, it stayed lit for MAYBE an hour (displaying very dim, mediocre "stars" on the cieling) and then burnt out. I won't even try to describe how the "Death Star" doesn't really remain closed and how useless the stand for it is. If there's a bright spot in the galaxy of Star Wars licensed items, this is the furthest thing from it.
