Each model is hand-painted and numbered, and comes in a wax-sealed gift box that lights up and plays Star Wars music specific to the film the vehicle in question appeared in.

The size of an adult hand, each Laser Drone flies to 35mph in under three seconds and has on-board lasers which allow you to recreate your favourite Star Wars battles with your friends and record winning scores.

The Laser Drones will retail at £229.99 and will be on shelves at Maplin, Currys, Argos, Disney Store and Hamleys.
