Click above for more photos of Daniel Deutsch's Landspeeder

Daniel Deutsch has been building robots and other such coolness for the entertainment industry for over 20 years, and we want what's in his garage. Deutsch, in addition to building R2-D2s, has a full-scale functional replica of Luke Skywalker's XP-34 landspeeder. Instead of a repulsorlift, this speeder is powered by an electric drive system that gives him a 25 mph top speed "several miles" of range off a single charge.
We assume that's enough for him to go out and retrieve Artoo when he wanders away from the homestead. (Deutsch really should slap a restraining bolt on the little guy.) And as for his speeder? Never mind the GEM, that is the ultimate NEV. On the downside, ever since the XP-38 came out, the resale value on these things sucks.
