NEVER SAY THAT STAR WARS fans are short of ideas when it comes to scoring movie tickets.

This nifty recent attempt used a Revell X-Wing, hoisted into the sky under a helium balloon.

The aim? To be on the list for tickets to the upcoming JJ Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens which all fans (we reckon) are hoping will provide whatever it takes to repair the damage to Star Wars caused by that loathsome alien character, Jar Jar Binks.

The stunt for Project Helium Tears was a bid to secure premiere tickets, and the video has racked up more than 380,000 YouTube views when we looked earlier today.

Come on, JJ, just a couple of tickets!

And in recent news, Revell will be announcing new additions to the Star Wars Easykit range to coincide with the arrival of The Force Awakens later this year.
