Posted:I usually find HOP prices to be FAIRLY reasonable, which is why I usually buy from here. When I got an email the other day saying they would have Death Star heads within a week, I figured maybe i would buy some. Of course that was going by the assumption that they would be somewhat close in price to other Death Star poi I'v seen (80-90 US dollars). They are charging $343 for a pair!!!!! Could someone please explain to me why they are so ridiculously expensive?

Posted:Well, these deathstars are different to the normal deathstars, these ones have coned spikes coming out in all directions, when the other ones have flat spikes coming out on the sides of a cube. So in principle, this one should have bigger flames, but it uses less wick so I don't know...

A lot of detailed work and care go into the making of each set. In comparison, we can finish 25 pairs of monkey fist knots in the same time it takes to make a single pair of 3D Death Star poi.

Just had a look at the new stuff on the shop, and I must say, I'm impressed!

Great work, HoP Crew!
