It's no surprise that the merch-wagon has kicked into top gear ahead of the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story but nothing excites us quite as much as these laser battle drones! They exude Star Wars from every joint - which even stretches to the wax-sealed first editions which play the Star Wars theme when you first open them up!

Propel has introduced the first in a series of special edition laser battling drones available this Christmas on shelves now. The hand-finished, individually numbered Star Wars ships provide just a glimpse of what is to come in 2017.

The T-65 X-wing Starfighter, Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced X1, and a 74-Z Speeder Bike from Return of the Jedi, will be the first of the drones available, giving new pilots the chance to fly for either the Empire or Rebel Alliance.

The highly advanced piece of machinery packed into a form factor the size of your palm contains intelligent awareness technology that allows for several different types of highly accurate multiplayer aerial laser battles, ushering in a new era of gaming – Drone Gaming.

As well as flying to speeds above 35 MPH in less than three seconds, a unique flight control algorithm enables special manoeuvres that mimic Star Wars flight patterns, such as forward moving corkscrew rolls and innovative reverse propulsion drone technology means the ships fly in cid:image003.png@01D24BDB.C92371B0the most lifelike way.

As the excitement builds, legions of Star Wars fans and drone owners will be heading to ‘Propel Star Wars Drones’ – a dedicated Facebook page where pilots can receive additional training content, tips on how to fly and win in real-life dogfights, and a chance to meet other pilots to co-ordinate battles.

Darren Matloff, CEO of Propel says, “For almost 40 years, countless Star Wars fans new and old have dreamed about piloting their very own starfighter and with the new reverse propulsion drone technology from Propel they’re finally here! We have developed twelve new patent pending technologies in an effort to create a truly immersive user experience with the drone that can manoeuvre through the skies untethered in a highly accurate representation of how these Star Wars craft are supposed to fly”.

The first editions are RRP £229.99 and are sold in a wax-sealed special edition box which arrive on shelves at Maplin, Currys, Argos, Disney Store and Hamleys from the beginning of December 2016.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
