If you’re planning on picking up one of the souvenir ‘Thermal Detonator’ Coca-Cola bottles from your time at Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction, you may not be able to fly home with it.
The TSA has banned the grenade-shaped Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite bottles from all carry-on and checked luggage, due to their uncanny likeness to explosive devices.
According to the Today show, a TSA spokesperson confirmed travelers hoping to bring a souvenir bottle home will have their hopes dashed once they check-in at the airport.

“Replica and inert explosives aren’t allowed in either carry-on or checked bags,” the TSA responded on Twitter when asked about the bottles designed to resemble a Star Wars droid or thermal detonator. “These items could reasonably be seen by some as replica hand grenades…While we continue to review this issue, TSA officers will maintain the discretion to prohibit any item through the screening checkpoint if they believe it poses a security threat.”
