This Star Wars Landspeeder is a full-sized, drivable, Jedi-approved replica built by Daniel Deutsch, who designed his version from the ground up. Neatorama dug up this 1:1 scale speeder, which has a custom aluminum chassis, fiberglass body, and an electric drive system that hits lightspeed at 25 mph (UPDATED: with gallery).

The art detail is also pretty amazing (and reeks of authenticity), with body work and fake damage consistent with the landspeeder in the film. And it shouldn't be huge shock that Deutsch has no intention of selling his magnum opus. But when I see this thing, I have delusions of rounding up Han, Obi-Wan, Lando and a whole lotta Colt 45, cruising past the Cantina, and looking for chicks with tentacles on their heads. Hmmm...that sounded a lot cooler in my head. [Skywalker Landspeeder via Neatorama]

Pah, did they really have to distract me by putting my favorite car in the background? This guy's apparently been doing things with WDW akin to how my friend Danny is with Universal Studios in Hollywood by the looks of it! Rather amusing to see Christopher Lloyd with C-3PO for some reason, though.
