The Force is strong with the Star Wars Battle Drones, and so is the awesome. Oh yeah. The awesome is VERY strong with these drones.
Okay, before we start talking about the actual drones, you need to know something. The packaging. It will probably make you weep. Yes, tears of joy will stream down your face.
Each drone arrives in a wax-sealed presentation box featuring a relief of the craft tucked inside. The box also features lighting effects so the drone is awesomely backlit. There’s more. The box also includes sound effects, playing the Star Wars theme music and snippets of dialogue from the film.
Now for the actual drones. You can choose from a T-65 X-Wing Starfighter, Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced X1, or a 74-Z Speeder Bike that includes a tiny stormtrooper riding it. They can go from 0-30MPH in just 3 seconds, and they can reach top speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. They also do more than fly. Laser lights let you engage other Star Wars drones in battle, with a controller that vibrates when you’re hit. Three laser strikes will send you, or your enemy, into a “gentle spiral to the ground.”
The Star Wars Battle Drones will be available November 24, 2016 but they can be pre-ordered now for $299 at Firebox.com. Choose from the 74-Z Speeder Bike, the T-65 X-Wing Starfighter, or the TIE Advanced X-1.
