PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- For only $19,999.95 one can buy their very own JL421 Badonkadonk from

The designer of "Donk" as it's known for short, says "it's definitely useful" for picking up members of the opposite sex, E! Online reported.

The Donk -- inspired by the barge used by Jabba the Hutt in "Return of the Jeddi" -- is a land vehicle and battle tank with a 400-watt sound system, plush, carpeted interior and can travel up to 40 mph.

The only problem is it's not street legal. Oh -- and another slight problem -- Ormand said he never got permission for his invention from Lucasfilm.

"I wouldn't be surprised if that's the next call," Ormond told E!

The original Donk -- by day -- transports the drums of Stanford University's Leland Stanford Junior Varsity Marching Band, for which Ormand pounds the skins.

"In the evening hours," he said, "it's a party vehicle."

It will take Ormond and his crew six to eight months to replicate the Donk if anyone happens to order one via Amazon, he said.
