How The First Death Star Was Built

You see the second Death Star under construction during Return of the Jedi, but you don't actually see it being constructed. There's no extended footage of imperial workers swinging space hammers, popping galactic rivets or doubling their efforts.

The image above, though, by Stephen Chang, shows how you might actually go about building something so big space smugglers would think it's a moon.

Chang, who works at game developers Lucasarts, did that pic and those below for the Force Unleashed games, which take place between the two film trilogies.

You can see more of his great art at Chang's personal site.

    It's a shame Force Unleashed 2 ended up the way it did, despite the incredible graphics.

    Still can't believe they didn't heal Vader up better than they did, we can do better with skin-grafts and shit now (not the prosthetic limbs and stuff obviously).
