    Have you guys seen this? It's a TIE fighter built with STARBUCKS cups, lids, and straws!

    According to the page, the modeler used 50 coffee cups, 216 stirrers and over 60 drinks holders to make this one of TIE Fighter.

    Gadzooks! At 5.00 a cup, he could have almost built a real one! But I'm sure he needed something to do with all the energy! ;)
