As Holiday fixtures go you have your Bobbing Head Rudolph, the Waving Santa you bought for $59.99 down at OSH and plugged in yourself. Then you have the 700-pound scale replica of the Millenium Falcon Lafayette Space Cadet Colby Powell built for his family and hoisted atop his roof with help of a crane.
So far, we’re hearing the neighborhood approves of the structure – which the Powells started in late September and finished by their designated Star Date: Halloween.
One-upping themselves from the replica of the Death Star (haw, ptui, soooo last Millenium) they craned up onto their roof over the Holidays last year, the Star Wars-loving Powells have everything but a functioning pulse cannon up there – the Powell kids getting major Christmas Cred at school these days.
Will The Powell Falcon spark an inter-suburban Space Race? Are rumors that the Powells’ neighbors are building a fleet of Tie Fighters to meet their Falcon in roof-to-roof combat true? Wait and see, Luke, wait and see. The Force is strong and moves in mysterious ways.
