SDCC 2017: New drivable Star Wars Landspeeder for kids is here (not for adults)

July 21st, 2017 by Mark McCann Comments

Preview night at SDCC exploded the usual array of goodies that children and, more importantly man and women-children, are about to go into the red on their credit cards over.

One gem in particular was the Star Wars collectibles from Radio Flyer, who revealed a product so dope that Wars fans will likely sell their grandmothers to get it.

The miniature, driveable version of Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope is a meticulous recreation of Luke’s Tatooine version of a second hand Skoda.

Not that we care.

It hovered and looked cool. The real version fits children ages 4 and up, holds two riders, can travel at 5 mph, and features an interactive dashboard with sounds from the films.

Though plenty of adults will likely be trying to cram themselves in there too, let’s face it.

I came here in a time machine from the 1980s. The time machine was called childhood. I'm getting back there at all costs! (I also live, love, write, lift & pet cats wherever I may find them.)
