Star Wars fans can already buy their very own BB-8, or wield a lightsaber in VR, or even wear Star Wars makeup. But let's be real, everyone's dream is to pilot the Millennium Falcon, and now you can do just that—a miniature version, with actual lasers.



The upcoming Star Wars Battle Quads from Star Wars Propel were unveiled at Star Wars Celebration 2016. The models include the Millennium Falcon, TIE Advanced X1, T-65 X-Wing and 74-Z Speeder Bike, and they are all hand-painted and numbered. They can fly at speeds up to 40mph, but best of all, they have real lasers you can use to make them battle each other.

They're not currently available in the US, but you can reserve them here. No official word on when they'll be available yet (or exactly what they cost, so it could be a lot), but we have a sneaking suspicion that it will be just in time for the holidays.
