Jeff Bezos Dick Rocket is on sale for $69 in scale model
Rocket maker Estes is launching a 1/66-scale model of the Blue Origin New Shepard rocket, which means anyone will be able to launch their own version of the spacecraft 400 feet into the air. But if you’re wondering, yes, the Estes version is just like the real one. Which means it looks like a penis.
Amazon billionaire launched Jeff Bezos on the edge of a cliff in New Shepherd last month, and arrived 62 miles above sea level, surpassing the height of fellow billionaire Richard Branson 53 miles. However, Branson’s rocket does not look like a rooster.
The new Estes missile retails on its own for $69.99, but if you don’t already have a launcher, you’ll want to splurge on getting the starter kit, which includes the rocket, launch pad, electronic launch controller, package of motors, and recovery stuffing. Just make sure you don’t shoot too early, which is a problem that can really limit your enjoyment of the missile – a missile that looks like a humanoid one.
Estes website says you’ll need a file C6-3 or C6-5 Engine package for suitable launch:
The Estes New Shepard is a 1/66 scale model of the Blue Origin New Shepard launch vehicle. It flies as high as C6-3 or C6-5, can reach 400 feet, and it also, after the capsule is deployed, drops through the atmosphere under a large canopy to gently touch it. Like the Blue Origin New Shepard, you can fly the Estes New Shepard over and over again.
Promotional video available at Youtube, cuts between a model rocket and real footage from the New Shepard launch with Bezos. Which, again, unfortunately looks like male genitals.
As a YouTube commenter put it, “My sister has one of them in her drawer.”
“Estes is proud to partner with Blue Origin to deliver a piece of history that will inspire children to dream and imagine. This ready-to-fly New Shepard model is the perfect addition to your desk or launcher to recreate the spaceflight yourself!” Company Website explain.
The Blue Origin rocket won’t officially go on sale until November but pre-orders are now available. There is a limit of five per customer, which probably means that they are expecting a huge demand for that customer. If you’re looking to get one by Christmas, it’s probably best to get in now, if we’re to guess. These Baker missiles will fly off the shelves.
Each rocket will include a postcard from Bezos’ organization, The Future Club, where people can submit their own vision of the future. The postcards will be taken aboard the Blue Origin flight and returned to the sender with the message “Flown to Space” stamped, according to press release.
