The newest iteration of 'Star Wars' has sent yet another young generation into a space opera-inspired frenzy, and Spin Master is introducing a new toy set that can fuel their burgeoning fandom. The 'Air Hogs Star Wars X-wing vs. Death Star, Rebel Assault RC Drone' kit is a set of three drones that can recreate the climactic scene from 'Star Wars' in which Luke destroys the Death Star.

Though the ships from Spin Master's toy set are all from the oldest version of the fantasy franchise, kids will be sure to engage with them once they get a look at the abilities. The X-wing, TIE fighter and Death Star drones all have infrared blasters and receivers, letting players engage in miniature space warfare.
