Right now you can get the Propel Star Wars Drones for $39.97 ea! in store. (looking at it right now in Nebraska Costco)

I have included the links below but Costco.com has them for $59.99, however I am at my local costco right now and the price for all 3 is 39.97 each. they have about a dozen of each in stock.

I took a photo of it but I cant seem to figure out how to attach it in the app.

These are absolute junk. They will only frustrate young kids. Very cheaply made, only function for a week at best.

While this might be some people's opinion, many are very happy with these, especially with the packaging, unboxing, and the price point. At $40 it's a great value for a star wars fan imo. Lots of threads that include that general sentiment. At $150 I would agree, it's not a good drone, but for $40, it's great fun.

I'll try be more constructive than the above post.
I wouldn't recommend these for inexperienced flyers outdoors, especially children as they're made to look cool, not necessarily last. Also fly them in little to no wind for best results. I grabbed 3 on the staples deal that came out to around 30 bucks each and split with some friends. I'd expect these to hit $20 at some point so I wouldn't get this deal based on price, however if you actually plan on flying it it'll probably eventually crap out on you at which time bring it back to Costco, so maybe Costco is the way to go. As a display piece it looks very cool next to the Vader tie I also have.

I bought them at $20 each from a returns store, I bought two of each model. Out of six we got one flying correctly. It's all over YouTube. These are only useful as modes. If you have kids under age of 10, do not buy, it could ruin them for life. Remember we did not have toys like this growing up.

Essex / Bargain Hunt. They are all over the SouthEast. Seems as if half the people that bought these from Amazon returned them. They had tons of them each week for past year. Now they are rebranded to Costco. They think Costco buyers don't return goods as often as Amazon buyers.
