OK, I zipped thru to see it in the video. My guess is probably pretty close.

Given the public meme reaction over the flight, the size of the model, and Amazon’s non-reluctance to take advantage of a situation like this, this may be the biggest Christmas gift season on record for Estes!! Hope they have at least two containers coming in before Thanksgiving!! 😂

Wow! At a list price of $69.99, that thing better include batteries!

idea for a third-party accessory that is a vibration motor that fits into whatever stuffer tube they use (and there's a joke in that, somewhere).

I'm thinking closer to 10" cause Aerosmith did a cover song that would fit the conversation nicely, though technically about a 78 rpm record.
