Remote-controlled Star Wars kit blown up

Inflatable Empire

Reducing security risks from open source software

Toy Fair 2012 Gadget specialist Bladez Toys is to cater for the Star Wars collective with a handful of officially-licensed remote-controlled inflatables based on characters from the films.

The Star Wars (ahem) Pump and Play is essentially a run-of-the-mill RC vehicle with an inflatable - at least 65cm in height - fixed to the top. The blow-ups are interchangeable and can be bought separately.

Star Wars Pump and Play

The company had its prototype R2-D2s on show at the Toy Fair 2012 in London this week, but several others are on the way, including Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper and Yoda.

Nothing spectacular by any means, but still worth a pump perhaps?

The Bladez Toys Star Wars Pump and Play comes with a foot pedal and hits shelves this autumn for £40. ®
