Current Obtainment (v3.3.0 and higher)
Golden Egg #8 sent us a “change of address” card in the mail, effective in v3.3.0 (Red’s Mighty Feathers). A very special thanks to Rovio for giving us the head’s up and low-down, without whom we would likely have never found it.
The Golden Egg is now hidden in the Level Selection Screen of Mine and Dine. Very hard to find, notice the headlamp of the smaller pig in the bottom-right corner. The golden light from that headlamp is actually the Golden Egg.
If you’re having trouble, be sure to check out the video walkthrough below. The first part of the video shows you the location of the Golden Egg and the second part contains the walkthrough on how to unlock the star.
Original Obtainment (v3.2.0 and lower)
Golden Egg #8 is hidden in the episode select screen. To unlock it just double-tap the sun that appears in the background below the episode selection buttons (bottom center).
Update: If you instead have a logo for Angry Birds Star Wars bottom center of the episode selection screen, tap the logo a few times. Do NOT tap the small “Play” icon slightly to its right.
If you’re having trouble be sure to check out the video walkthrough below. The first part of the video shows you the location of the Golden Egg and the second part contains the walkthrough on how to unlock the star.

What if you are past the 3 pane episode screen?
Just swipe over anyhow, it’s still there.
But how can i get it on PC??? The sun is behind the”Golden Eggs text?
I believe you can go into an episode (for example, click Poached Eggs) and then double-click the sun.
which game do i find the location of egg 8
Have you checked the video walkthrough? It gives a lot of information.
I have tried tapping the sun using my Droid, but nothing happens. It’s the first time the walk-through hasn’t worked.
Have you tried on both the episode and level selection screens, tapping multiple times?
Yes, I tried tapping multiple times and nothing happened!
I am using Android and i don’t even know it is the Free, Lite and the original.Can you help me?
I have it now today when play my Android and play Angry Birds and when I am in the Episode Selection then I tap once! I have my Golden Egg now.
Good to hear!
Is there a special spot to hit on the TNT boxes? I always have to try a thousand times to get it to flow. The brick on top always falls on the wrong position after breaking the glass and the rock won’t fall (PC version).
Hitting the middle of the front box normally does it for me
Unbelievable! It worked straight away. Thanks a lot!
I didn’t know about this Golden Egg until I looked through the Walkthroughs.
How do you get the egg on the new update!?
There is no Egg in Surf & Turf.
I mean this egg, tapping on the sun doesn’t seem to work
did you double tap?
Tap multiple times.
I’ve tried loads! Ah well I’ll keep trying cheers
Got it cheers everyone!
I can not activate the egg in version 2.1.1, I could tell how? Thank you!
I’m not aware of any issues in v2.1.1 with this egg.
UH, what a pity! This is the last egg I need!
If you come to really appreciate getting the information you post
I can try it later today, but it won’t be for a few hours. Try tapping the sun (multiple times) in either the Episode Selection Screen or the Level Selection Screen.
This website is AMAZING!! Without it, I would be so lost! lol. but can you post a videos with you doing it yourself like tapping the sun yourself. do this also for all other golden egg videos please!
oh sorry. you do actually do it yourself. i didnt watch the video i just wanted to leave a coomment about this amazing website
Welcome, and glad to help! The white dots that appear on-screen represent us touching the screen.
I don’t understand the variety of scores. I have broken all of the glass & pigs … Everything that can be… but get a different score every time. Can someone explain this to me please? Thanks
It also depends on the number of birds you use, for every unused bird after every pig is popped, you get 10k points added. Also, hitting debris doesn’t always result in the exact same score. Maybe similar, but rarely exact.
I did notice that the rock that flies out of the maze at the start of the game will sometimes break, giving 500 points but sometimes it does not crumble..hence no 500 extra points. Are there more rocks that can break giving points? I only noticed one other rock that flies out, but it always leaves the viewing area. Could this be it? But even still, it seems the scores would be pretty much the same but they are all over the place. I’m so confused. Also, the video does not show exactly which box the bird hits on the launching. I’m assuming this is the key? It’s nearly impossible to perfect this shot because the game moves over to the maze immediately, not allowing me to see where I even hit on the 3 TNT boxes. Sorry about this…I am just such a “why?” person.
1. Actually, all rocks, that when hit enough times, crumble and give points.
2. That “rock” is some sort of ball that doesn’t give points. Zoom out to see it fly through the air.
3. Doesn’t matter, ends up in the same result. The thing that give different scores is luck, sometimes some rocks break while others don’t, welcome to Angry Birds.
4. You could zoom out to prevent that.
@ kart flyer. On this particular one, there is only one bird
Having trouble with this one. On my iPhone. I have tapped the sun numerous times on the main menu screen and tried it on the episode screens, nothing happened but worked fine on my Android. Can you advise how to achieve this on the newest update as the menu screen has changed?
The new menu layout shouldn’t affect your ability to hit the sun. Maybe you collected this golden egg already.
Help!!!! I’ve tapped multiple time on each of the levels and still nothing. It’s my last egg! Please help :)
A few tips to obtain some extra points:
1. Launch Red Bird into the tube to hit the middle box of tnt (not the middle of the closest tnt box) to get 2140 points instead of 2040.
2. The stone that the tnt launches flies back to the left and breaks on the ground or hits the launch structure for an extra 500 points.
3. Breaking the glass round ball on the left bottom for 500 points. This ball sometimes stays in its same area and does not move to be broken by the “steel” ball.
4. Breaking the glass plank under the stone block that sets the single stone ball rolling to the left for 500 points. There also seems to be extra points in this area if the stone block is hit with more force underneath by the round stone ball. The point range at this point-in-time varies by 2k.
5. Getting more than one round stone ball into the tnt chamber on the far right near the bottom right most green pig.
6. There seems to be points gained when some of the stone balls contact the rock structure framework. Case in point is when a single stone ball flies up and hits the slanted structure piece floating in mid air on the far right. I am not quick enough to see the other areas as the game progresses.
7. The column of stones on the far right will bounce and break the horizontal glass plank, fall and activate all the tnt on the bottom without launching a bird. Points gained 16k-20k. This self-destruct action provides advantage because there is no way to get the far left pig because the “steel” ball does not get activated. What is interesting about this action is the range of points obtained from what appears to be an identical self-destruct action. There has to be some interaction with the fall of the stones and the activation of the tnt boxes on the bottom to produce more points. It does seem there is a difference in the force or intensity of how the tnt explodes.
Other than the launch, the “L” factor appears to have a great influence in determining the final score.
This level has a zero-bird self-destruct, which unfortunately doesn’t clear everything. It starts with the stack of rocks on the right side, which vibrate on the glass holding them. After about 8 minutes, the harmonics cause the glass to shatter, dropping the rocks and clearing the bottom of the maze, for a score of about 19800.
Now you can launch your bird, and clear everything except the left-most pig, because you’ve already blown up the explosives that would have launched a rock at it.
Can anyone figure out how to turn this into a win?
cc @mvnla2, I not yet test it.
with the most current update, the sun is no longer there :( tried clicking a few areas, but no luck
Try on the Level Selection screen instead. I will update the post.
Any word on the updated version with Egg #8? The sun is not on the Episode Level, nor the Level Selection Screens?
Per the post above:
Thanks for responding.
Does not seem to work on my iPad. Have tappend several times on THE starwars logo. Any suggestiefs, please.
Should work fine @MartyBlack. You might have to tap a few times but I’ve confirmed it myself.
Thanks for the reply (you guys are running a great website!), but it sadly won’t work.
Rovio is investigating.
I have an iPad and have the Star Wars logo and tapping it -no matter how many times – doesn’t work for me either. I have a ver 1 iPad but have ver 3.3.1 of the Angry Birds game. I currently have 29 Golden Eggs and have 3-stars at every level up to the Egg Defender bonus level. How many golden eggs should I have? 30?
Please see the top post. The requirement was changed and our video reflects the new location.
@MartyBlack I have found the Golden Egg, thanks greatly to our good friends at Rovio. I will be updating the post momentarily.
Thanks again AM, it’s the last egg….
This one was very difficult for me to get for a while,but thanks to that video
I finally got it! Thanks!
Red Bird to front of the 3 TNT, and wait for the chain reaction. 43k
GE #8 46,590
Who you gonna call?
Don’t know how I managed to get top score on this one, other than the possibility that Rovio may have changed it somehow with the latest update. I did my usual “best of twelve” for golden eggs and got third place. Went through it again and got first. I think perhaps more points are available here for some lucky flinger.
@purplepaws, there is definitely an update improvement in scoring here. Played 5 times and each time scored better than my previous high from years ago. I only added 3K, but it took me to top score (for now). On the high score I missed TNT 1 (left) and hit the middle TNT.
Screen shot of score:
@purplepaws @abeggertoo yes it’s mucheasier now. Played about 15 minutes and got into 2nd place
I have Macbook pro and the newest version. It says Angry Birds Go! instead of star wars. I tried double clicking everywhere on the logo and all over to no avail.
Tried mine and dine and it is there!
Too bad you cannot see the Golden Egg in the headlamp…….
The egg seems to be no longer on the headlamp. I’m clicking like crazy and nothing.
I hear click in headlamp but there are no egg..
They fixed this bug. Egg is now back in the headlamp.
Are there no reds mighty feathers in v 3.0.0
I suppose the only thing one can do here is gain the extra 100 points at start, the rest is 100% lottery.
