Unproduced Death Star Battle Electronic Game
This is a handmade prototype to a Parker Brothers electronic game planned at the time of Return of the Jedi. It consists of a full scale range finder as used by Luke to target the Death Star in A New Hope. When powered by batteries, the game shows images to recreate the Death Star battle. The box was made as a mock up for the toy. This is the only finished prototype of this game that was made at the time of Return of the Jedi. The toy itself is a painted hardcopy with hand cut decals, metal parts, and screws. It's completely functional and powered by C cell batteries.
