Star Wars Landspeeder Now A Reality For Kids
The first kid-sized Star Wars Landspeeder you can drive.
Luke Skywalker’s Star Wars Landspeeder by Radio Flyer is modeled after the sand-pocked and sun-faded X-34 craft from Star Wars: A New Hope. With seats for 2 riders, an interactive dashboard with lights and real movie sounds, and a 5mph driving speed, this speeder provides a truly galactic driving experience.
Radio Flyer — yes, the maker of that little red wagon — has upgraded and is peddling toys from a galaxy far, far away. Meanwhile, larger-sized adults still must walk, like some boring nonforce-sensitive Stormtrooper.
Luke Skywalker’s Star Wars Landspeeder by Radio Flyer is modeled after the sand-pocked and sun-faded X-34 craft from Star Wars: A New HopeTM. With seats for 2 riders, an interactive dashboard with lights and real movie sounds, and a 5 mph driving speed, this speeder provides a truly galactic driving experience.
Five colored buttons are available on the dashboard, each one unleashing a different offensive weapon from the vehicle’s arsenal. And by weapon, we mean annoying noises, namely engine sounds, flight sounds, C-3PO babble, R2-D2 bleep-bloops, and Luke Skywalker’s heroic meanderings, with all audio taken directly from the original film.
Oh yeah, those buttons come with light effects, too, as if loud sounds and driving all over isn’t enough to drain the ride-on car’s rechargeable 12-volt battery. The toy, by the way, weighs just 59.9 pounds, so you can easily pick it up and hide it away on the top of a tall cabinet when the time comes (and you know it will) that your kids eventually tire of the darn thing.
Slated to ship in September, Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder by Radio Flyer is priced at $499.99.
