These fans built the hottest Millennium Falcon around

With Star Wars mania sweeping the galaxy, Sideshow fan Jeremy S. came up with an idea that should have been the envy of every scoundrel, smuggler, and scruffy looking nerf-herder from here to Tatooine.

Constructed from cardboard with plenty of compartments for candy, he wrote, “I thought the Sideshow crew and fans out there might get a big timely kick out of our huge Millennium Falcon piñata for our sons’ double birthday party! They were born a year and four days apart, so we just do a big party for both.”

When the big day came, eager party attendees looked on and cheered, waiting for their turn to “punch it.”

But then suddenly, the plan took a turn for the worst…

Jeremy insists the flames, caused by a small smoke bomb meant for effect, were not intentional. But based on his winning entry from our Spooktacular pumpkin carving contest earlier this year, which featured a fully operational Flametrooper design (shown below), we’re not entirely convinced…

Thankfully, the fire was quickly extinguished and no one was harmed, including the precious candy cargo. Regardless, we do not recommend you try this at home. No reward is worth this.
