Whether it’s because of the popularity of video games such as The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, or television shows such as Game of Thrones, or even Hollywood movies such as How to Train Your Dragon, one thing is clear: dragons are insanely popular right now. And, it’s a safe bet that more than a few people would like to get their hands on the mythical creature. Unfortunately, as we all know, living and fire-breathing dragons are a bit rare to come by. But that doesn’t stop people, namely those from Hammacher Schlemmer from trying to turn their dreams into reality.
I’m here to tell you that you can actually buy a dragon that flies through the air and is also able to breathe fire from its mouth. (Unfortunately, it costs more than many new cars).
The “Toy” That Will Frighten The Neighborhood
As you might imagine, this thing is no average remote controlled vehicle. For one thing, once it’s airborne it will soar through the skies at a speed of 70 MPH. When it’s not in the sky, it actually breathes real fire out of its mouth. And forget rechargeable batteries – this beast is powered by a half-gallon of jet fuel which allows it to terrorize the town for a full 10 minutes at a time.
In case you’re wondering how this dragon can fly in the first place, it has a small jet turbine on its back (of course it does) which shoots out a thrust of around 500 MPH. If flight wasn’t enough in the first place, its head also turns, its eyes glow red, and when it does shoot flames, it shoots them out at a distance of 3 feet. It also has a 9 foot wingspan.
If you find yourself wondering how much this medieval dragon costs, let’s go ahead and get it out the way. It’ll cost you $60,000. Oh well, it’s nice to dream every once in a while.
