Shed Of The Year - vintage SW spotted

Postby Bonsai_Tree_Ent » Mon Aug 21, 2017 9:56 am

'Shed Of The Year' on Channel 4 last night had a little glimpse of vintage Star Wars with a couple of AT AT Walkers on display amongst the decorations in the shed below (out of shot in the pic). Another shed featured was a reconstructed ABC Cinema, complete with a good amount of cinema memorabilia from the vintage era. Fun programme, if you missed it, then its no doubt available on 4OD streaming or might be repeated on 4Seven.

Quite a cool looking shed, but by the looks of the ladder in the back is that one underground?

It does have that bunker look to it, I have a feeling though the ladders could possibly lead to the roof or a second level room?

FYI, i'd love to live in that if it was underground! 8)

That one is accessed through a regular looking shed. There's a hidden trapdoor and it leads down to that mancave. And actually I just spotted on the little table - there is an AT-AT in that photo after all.

Looks like a stormtrooper outfit just behind the door to the left can just see a bit of feet and helmet

If you have a bunker for the apocalypse of course you'll need to bring your toys with you 8) there wouldn't really be any point in surviving unless you bring some of your history with you.

And that cinema is amazing!! :shock:

That's really cool a proper little man cave! That looks like the guy who built it in the picture on the wall.

The guy who made the shed is called Colin furze. He's an utter and internet inventor. He's huge on YouTube.

You think his shed is good because of the at at. Get ready to have your tiny minds blown.



Have a look at his website.
