The sixth addition to the Perplexus family – Perplexus Death Star is one of the most difficult and definitely the most entertaining one so far. It has 114 barriers, including slides, drops, and an interesting inclusion of a magnet-based traversal. It is designed after the famous “Death Star” from the Star Wars movies and looks great. The toy has lots of details – a little R2-D2 on top, a branded stand, Dart Vader shaped barrier, and even some cool light and sound effects. The only drawback I found is the lack of additional starting points, which means that once you let the ball drop out of the track, you will have to start from the very beginning.
As you can probably tell, I was highly impressed by Perplexus Death Star. Even though it is much pricier than the other toys in the series, the beautiful design and the extra features make up for it. If you have to buy just one of the Perplexus mazes, I highly recommend to get this one. If you are simply a Star Wars fan, you should do it too – it will be a great addition to your collection.
