This is Ike. No, he's not from The North. He hails from Brisbane, Australia, and he says his "home-theater man-cave shows my geekiness and love for science fiction, fantasy and music."

"This is my dream sanctuary where I get to relax and enjoy watching TV, listening to music, playing in a band," Ike says.

The TV is a 75-inch Panasonic Viera LED TV that Ike says has "very good black rendering, comparable to modern OLED TVs."

With the backdrop canvas, these Star Wars craft look more like they're actually flying in space. The Millennium Falcon is a vintage model that's 2 feet long. Ike "won it" in an online bidding war.

His 48-inch Darth Vader also has a motion sensor. The Storm Trooper fiberglass helmet on top of the JBL stage speaker is wearable, as is the Mandalorian helmet.
