Wow- that Star Wars bed, from Pottery Barn, really costs $4,000

When I read about a $4,000 Millennium Falcon styled Star Wars bed from Pottery Barn, I was curious. It has to be awesome, right? When I saw a picture of it, I assumed there was some sort of miscommunication or typo. Having only seen it referenced in third-party articles, I figured someone had their facts mixed up. Who would pay $4K for a kid's bed when its such a simplistic reduction? That's a pretty weak rendition of Han's beloved craft.

At four thousand dollars, that cockpit should be illuminated with plenty of realistic dials, buttons, levers, gauges, and lights. All the details of the cockpit are merely painted on. How disappointing!

Star Wars bed Is anyone fooled by the accents painted on the floor and wall in an attempt to make this monstrosity look like it's hurtling through space? I feel sorry for every kid who gets one of these from their wealthy, unimaginative parents.

It wouldn't be too difficult to create a cool kid's bed yourself for far less than PB Kid's price. When my son was no longer thrilled with his bunk beds, I built him a custom bed-fort! The Game Fortress
