    With Powerball reaching 550 million last week, me and my brothers were fantasizing about what we would do if we won. So if you became rich somehow, powerball/mega millions/inheritance/whatever, what star wars related things would you do with the money? Here's a few things I would want.

    A tower off of my house with a Jedi council room at the top, amazing 360 degree views.

    A statue of Yoda near my pool area.

    An Ewok style treehouse in my backyard for my kids.

    A custom R2D2 kegorator in my man cave.

    Two imperial guard statue's right outside my front door.

    Exact replica of Han Solo frozen in carbonite hanging up on a wall somewhere in my house.

    Solo in carbonite would be great. Though if I were THAT rich I'd actually have someone frozen in carbonite...

    Ewok / Kashyyyk style tree house area would be so awesome, but I can't say I'm a fan of statues.

    I'd have some sort of X-wing simulator, think Daytona USA with up to 16 machines linked but with starfighters...

    I would also hire George Lucas as a consultant so I could disprove any rumor from SuperShadow.

    Some would say he has done enough already. Since the announcement of the sequel trilogy I have seen him cited as a source more and more.

    I'd build an exact replica of the Emperor's throne room from ROTJ in my soon to be constructed basement.

    I'd probably buy a full suit of Vader from the original Trilogy (preferably ESB), pay for a friend to move to England so we can have his illness looked into by the NHS without him going bankrupt through American healthcare, and then donate the rest of it to a friend's charity she's setting up.

    I would invest in research and funding to build the first speeder. Then i would take it through as many cities as possible to raise charity, then i'd get a Big-mac, no there's no hidden message in that, i think i would just be hungry after all that. [face_clown]

    There is a petition on the White House site, asking to build the Death Star; as of this morning 500 people have signed it. The link is the Community Forums.

    I like the Jedi Council room atop of a tower idea, that'd be cool. I also would build an Ewok style treehouse for my kid who, should he/she listen to the doctors, should arrive this Friday, but we know that won't happen. Ok, so the kid won't be able to play in the treehouse for a few years, but that doesn't mean I can't. And then I'd build an awesome man cave with a huge flat screen TV.

    I would move out to a big house with an observation tower and a kickass telescope, someplace with sanctions protecting against nighttime light pollution, and I'd track the motions of the stars and planets each night, and become friends with the sky.

    Throw in a fully equipped music studio, property driving course, and a replica of John Milner's piss yellow deuce coop, and you can call me a happy man.
