A group of Star Wars fanatics have taken fandom to the next level – building a Han-Solo-in-carbonite fridge. Because really, why ever not?

Footage of the creation was uploaded to Instagram. And - just in case you thought the masterpiece couldn't get any better  - it even lights up.

 

Look what we made! Build video coming in the next few weeks on Tested.com, and detailed thread coming soon to @therpf.

If you simply must have a Han-Solo-in-carbonite fridge, then you're in for a treat. Its creators will release a "build video" on Tested.com shortly. 

For the uninitiated, during an iconic scene in Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back, villains Darth Vader and Boba Fett get the upper hand over Han Solo (Harrison Ford), freezing him inside a prison of carbonite. It doesn't sound (or look) like a pretty experience. 

But for the diehard Star Wars fan, it's just what every kitchen needs.
