The latest addition to the "I wish they had this when I was a kid" department here at Rock Father HQ comes from Radio Flyer, who've just announced their Star Wars Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder Ride-on toy. Geared toward kids ages 4+, this two-seater hits a top speed of 5mph, and bears a weight limit of 130 lbs. Modeled after the iconic X-34 craft from 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope, this ride features an interactive dashboard with movie-accurate lights and sounds, and provides the perfect craft for chasing down your pesky run-away R2 unit. Just watch out for Sandpeople, though - the Jundland Wastes are not to be traveled lightly, and Tusken Raiders often travel single file to hide their numbers. See the Radio Flyer Landspeeder in action below!
If you've turned on a radio, television, or happen to have seen DESPICABLE ME 2, then you're probably familiar with "Happy," the song performed by PHARRELL WILLIAMS, that's become a smash hit over the past few months. "Happy" may be bigger than the Arby's hat that he wore to the Grammys, or the other one that he wore while performing on the Academy Awards earlier this month. So bring in an element of a "galaxy far, far away," and you've got the "HAPPY (We Are From Tatooine)" video, a viral clip put together by STAR WARS fans in Tunisia, location of many familiar locations that STAR WARS fans will recognize as Tatooine. Darth Vader, Boba Fett, C-3PO, R2-D2 and many others can be seen getting "Happy" in the video below.
