YouTuber, stuntman and inventor Colin Furze has already created a Tie Silencer and an AT-AcT to celebrate the last two Star Wars films. This year he was challenged to recreate the iconic Landspeeder to celebrate the release of Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker.
He explained: “Myself and eBay have teamed up again to complete our trilogy of Star Wars builds, from the AT-AcT to a full size Tie Silencer we are finishing off with Luke’s iconic landspeeder from the original film. The base vehicle and many parts have been sourced from eBay, the key source in any galaxy.”
The auction of the Landspeeder begins as Graham Norton announces it shortly.
