Next you'll be complaining the big wheel in the mini wheel bike doesn't turn.
It's hard to accept the small Republic Shuttle fighter as a space item...maybe an air speeder. Like the ISP thing from Kenner's Mini-rig...couldn't really picture it participating in the Death Star Battle. Nope. But the INT one that fit in the AT-AT, I could buy that. (I wish they'd done an update on that over the speeder bike with last year's AT-AT...dropping a speeder bike from a hundred feet in the air?)
Too bad an escape pod, even a small one, isn't "action oriented" enough for them to make.
