Millennium Falcon Remote Control: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

While making my way through the crowds at CES, I couldn't help but examine this table-top Star Wars gizmo from Nikko. At first glance, I assumed it was just a plain Millennium Falcon replica. But with the press of the after burner button, the entire backside slid out into a full remote control. Buttons on the remote can be used to control the R2-D2 projector, the DVD player, a CD player, and an iPod. You can also snap the Falcon onto the display stand and push the sound button to see the cockpit and afterburner light-up with real sound effects. Probably the perfect device for die-hard Star Wars fans. What are your thoughts on it?
