Inventor and madman Colin Furze has built some pretty wild stuff over the years. Among my favorites are his Star Wars-inspired projects, which so far have included a giant AT-ACT playhouse and a full-size TIE Silencer ships.
Star Wars kids will absolutely love this X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer. It doesn’t actually hover, but it does have a motorized drivetrain. You just need a VFX artist to go around with your kids and erase the bottom as they drive along.
Don’t forget to eat your cake, Luke. But I was going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters! Wait, did you say cake?!? I’m on it, Aunt Beru. This cool cake was made by Gilles Leblanc of Les Gateaux de Gilles in Quebec and it looks just like Luke’s X-34 Landspeeder.
This Landspeeder won’t hover as it cruises over the deserts of Tatooine, but it is a tasty treat that is perfect in every other detail.
Flickr user Nick Chen aka solscud made a cute collection of Star Wars minifigures wearing their respective vehicles. For instance, Kylo Ren has his command shuttle, Han Solo is wearing the Millennium Falcon and Rey is, well, in the Millennium Falcon, but with the new different radar dish.
Check out the rest in the gallery below or wear your browser and blast off to Nick’s Flickr page.

It’s never too early or too late to indoctrinate your cat into loving the things that you love. Like Star Wars. You could always buy your cat a neat Star Wars blanket, or a costume, but they really appreciate beds that look like Star Wars vehicles.
Instructables member blogsdo is a pretty awesome guy. He made this “quick and dirty” Landspeeder X-34 for his son’s 6th birthday party. He used a chassis from a pedal powered Original Kettcar and built the frame around it.
You know how they have the building plaques on some ships to commemorate their construction? Every Star Trek ship has one on the bridge too. Well, even though the Star Wars ships never had these, you can buy them from Big Bay Toy Store.
