If you have a diehard Star Wars fan in your life, chances are, they probably already own every piece of official merchandise there is. Lightsabers, action figures, R2D2, BB-8 droids, and Chewbacca plush toys — the whole shebang. Now you can easily pick out a random pair of socks with Boba Fett embroidered across the soles, but where’s the fun in that?

Since we’re currently in the season of giving, you can be extra generous this year and give them the best present in the galaxy. We’re talking about the Star Wars Collector’s Edition Propel Drones, which are now on sale at the Mashable Shop for $49.99.

We’re not kidding when we say that these quadcopters are almost as good as the real thing. Whether they consider themselves to be part of the Rebel Alliance or are a closet Imperial Army stan (hey, this is a free galaxy!), they will find great enjoyment in piloting these drones.

Check them out:

Modeled after the franchise’s iconic space vehicles — T-65 X-Wing Starfighter, TIE Advanced X1, and 74-Z Speeder Bike — these mini copters are equipped with reverse propulsion technology to execute exhilarating stunts and reach impressive speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. Depending on your flying experience, you can choose from the different speed settings that can cater to both newbie and advanced pilots alike. If you’re a beginner, you can hone your pilot skills with training missions supplied by the companion app. And if you’re a pro, you can perform aerial stunts with just a push of a button.

It doesn’t stop there, though. The app also allows for multiplayer campaigns, enabling you to dogfight with other propel drones and battle for galactic greatness.

And the thing that makes these drones the perfect present? Once the recipient unfurls the display case, it will automatically light up, and Star Wars-themed music and sound effects will start booming from the speakers.

Grab a Star Wars Collector’s Edition Propel Drone (or two, or three) on sale for $49.99 — that’s 66% off the usual cost of $149.95.
