A Lego Star Wars Computer Desk that you can admire and play

 

“A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…”, the iconic phrase that all Star Wars fans would know. Many of us would have bought one or more Star Wars merchandises and memorabilias over the years. Be it a model Death Stars or a Lego Millennium Falcon, the main issue with them is where best to display them at home. Most of the time, they may just be kept in boxes and get chucked in a corner of the store room. Or be sitting on selves collecting dusts. Today, we found out a practical way for display them while not wasting space at home!

This fully functional PC works as a good home entertainment system

Introducing, the Star Wars Built-in Glass Top Computer Desk by NXND computer! A fully functional desktop build within a fully exposed glass table, this computer is part art and part gaming rig. Powered by AMD Ryzen 1600x processor and PowerColor RX580 Red Devil graphic card, this machine is capable of powering most modern game in high fidelity graphic. The liquid cooling system extends throughout the table is a perfect match for the Star Wars Lego hangar that house two Lego X-Wings. It is the most challenging part of building the rig as it involves laying the pipes in a practical yet aesthetic manner.

According to NXND, this computer desk used to have three 27″ inch screen but now has a single 46″ screen. The 7.1 sound is driven by Yamaha RX-V573, perfect for your movie and game. All in all, the desktop cost around SGD10,000 to build. Not bad consider that it is a functional computer, table and a piece of art that you can enjoy looking at.


No, I am your father.

Right now, this Computer Desk is with one of the founder of NXND. It’s worthwhile to mention that he has many other Star Wars Lego models that he hangs up around his room for a more complete Star Wars experience. He may soon get a Death Star to further expand his Star Wars themed room. He is also a Gundam fan and plans to have his collection up for display soon. This is truly a man’s cave!

Buyers can view the catalogue of games available (more information here) and purchase them from our booth. If we manage to help you sell your game, you will receive your money at the end of the day! It’s that simple.
