It would appear that the Galactic Empire has finally run into budget issues. Gone are the days of constructing moon-sized battle stations. Instead, they’ve opted for flimsy tent stations that can be deployed quickly and cheaply.
Note: If you purchase one of the awesome products featured below, we may earn a small commission from the retailer.
To cut costs even further, the Empire is running the venture as a franchise. Entrepreneurial Stormtroopers will have to pay $249.99 for a licensed tent, and they’ll have to scout their own locations. However, once established, they’ll have the full support of the Empire behind them. Take advantage of this exciting career opportunity today! Your tent can be ordered here.
Each Death Star tent can comfortably sleep three people, and it can be assembled in a snap thanks to a fast click frame. An inner compartment and lightweight, waterproof carry bag are included for your smartphones and blasters. Check out the gallery below for additional images.
