The release of Rogue One has fans giddy about new Star Wars vehicles, but an old favorite has reemerged irl: The speeder bike.
You'll remember these from Return of the Jedi, when Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia commandeer them from scout stormtroopers. Graham’s video admirably recreates this classic chase scene — with slight aesthetic variations (Chewbacca is uglier, Ewoks are cuter).
While you won’t find these particular models available for purchase, as shown in the behind-the-scenes video, you might be able to figure it out with some engineering skills and about 75 rolls of duct tape.
One technician describes the modifications this way: “If you think of the Jetovator as a Kawasaki Ninja, this is like a custom chopper.”
Quite honestly, we’re open to either.
