Ok, this is a bit awkward.
Estes, a company that sells miniature rocket engines, kits and accessories, has a new item for sale: a replica of Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket, the same one that took Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos to the ‘space (via Gizmodo).
Yes, that means you can now have a small (1/66 in size) version of the cock-shaped rocket that launched a thousand memes on your desktop. The price is also notable: $ 69.99.
A more luxurious set is also available for $ 109.99 and includes the New Shepard rocket model, launch pad, launch controller, Estes C5-3 engine pack, and recovery padding pack. With these accessories, you can launch your little phallic rocket up to an altitude of 400 feet, and it will deploy a small parachute so that it doesn’t shatter on the way down.

Unfortunately, if you prefer the other space billionaire, Sir Richard Branson, who flew a little lower earlier than Bezos, you won’t be able to find a mockup of his rocket at the Estes site. Bad luck, Branson fans.
The Blue Origin rocket model is currently available for pre-order and will be widely available in November 2021. You can get it here.
