  • ​The energy company OVO Energy estimates that it would cost $7.8 octillion dollars per day to run the Death Star.  It would use 91,547,745,149 light bulbs! 
  • Bill McBride is the owner of the largest Darth Vader memorabilia collection in the world!  The "Star Wars" fanatic has been amassing his Vader shrine for over 20 years.  He has spent more than $280,000 on everything from figurines to replica lightsabers.  Several of the items in his collection are so rare that they don't even have a "market value," but some of his 60,000 toys could fetch as much as $16,000 if sold!  A man once offered to trade McBride his Porsche in exchange for a few of his precious Vader items, but McBride turned him down!
