This week, an international unboxing live stream event took place to unveil all of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys, including an astounding Millennium Falcon drone.

Fans of the franchise will surely be scrambling to get their hands on the high-tech toy. The Millennium Falcon drone is a remote control replica of the famed fantasy star ship. The surprisingly accurate toy version of the Millennium Falcon is essentially a quadcopter drone: it has four propellers and flies in a hovering, helicopter-like manner. Built from "high density foam," the Millennium Falcon drone is durable enough that it can sustain a bit of bumping into windows or ceilings with minimal damage -- or, of course, so it can fight other Star Wars drones.
