This Dad Built a Life-Size ‘Star Wars’ Playhouse in His Backyard

Ever wish you could take something straight out of a Star Wars film and bring it into the real world? This awesome dad has done just that by creating an incredible, larger than life AT-ACT playhouse.

Colin Furze’s claim to fame is his YouTube channel, which has over 4 million subscribers. He often creates bizarre inventions, sharing the entire (often dangerous) process on his channel. While I’m certainly intrigued by his other videos (a 5,000 shot firework Deathstar!?) it’s this challenge Furze received from eBay that has really captured my attention.

Furze explains that he had been asked to create the ultimate gift for a Star Wars fan, and with Rogue One‘s debut just around the corner, he knew exactly what he wanted to do. While Furze’s inventions are usually pretty outrageous, this one will simply leave you awestruck. After being inspired by a toy version of the combat machine from the films, known as an AT-ACT, Furze spent weeks scaling the toy up to the life-size version that is now in his backyard.

However, the real magic happens when Furze lowers the ladder and enters the creation. He reveals a game room straight out of Luke Skywalker’s dreams. Furze gives a grand tour noting:

“We’ve got Nerf gun racks, little shelves for your figures, a magnetic board with the Death Star plans on it. Then on the bottom of course we’ve got the game console and these little switches that operate the head and the guns.”

And that’s not all! It’s also jam-packed with Stormtrooper helmets, blinking lights, and room for more Star Wars paraphernalia. The best part about the video? When Furze’s son rushes up into the structure and can barely contain his excitement. He immediately throws on a Stormtrooper helmet and starts battling alongside his dad. It’s adorable, hilarious, and the most incredible playhouse I’ve ever seen.

Not only has Furze made his son’s holiday extra special, but thanks to eBay the awesome AT-ACT will be moved from his yard to a lucky Star Wars fan’s home. Truly, the gift that keeps on giving.
