Jedi Starfighter!
« on: February 18, 2006, 07:31 PM »
Today, I went to the store and picked one up.
Really amazing.
I like it alot, the wings are funky but they are cool.
Is the Clone Wars one any different?
 
What are your thoughts on this ship?

I got this about a year after it came out at a KB toys. I really like this ship. If you have the money, buy a SAGA Obi-Wan Pilot figure. He goes great with the ship. The Clone Wars version is kind of a turquois color instead of maroon, and the astro droid is yellow instead of red.

Well I got the ship yesterday afternoon and I've had the pilot obi-wan for a while now.
I stuck evo anakin(Episode 2) into it with #55 obi-wans head set like he was in the clone wars game for ps2.

Or better yet buy a ROTS pilot version and stick a Jedi vs Sith Battlepack head on him.

Oh yeah, I forgot all about doing that. I did switch them, but I hadn't done that in a while.

It's not a bad ship...  I think the ROTS ship is more accurate overall but the Saga/Clone Wars (and Plo Koon) version is pretty sharp too.  Anakin's CW fighter is pretty nice as well though a wholely new sculpt. 

All very good fighters really...  I wish it'd had more accurate landing gear is my only real gripe.   :-\  The damnable "features" that weren't in the film even are what hosed the ship on having actual retractable rear gear though.

I have always wonder why Lucas gave the ship an Astromech? It is part of the ship and not removable like the X-wing. Just odd in my opinion. I think it would have been neat to have them like the ROTS version with a removable Astromech.

Anyway the toy is a cool ship, but a little under size from what I can see. The battle mode is odd, but hasbro has to do something to screw with us. I would have perferred the hyperdrive ring over the battle mode thing. The ROTS one needed the ring also.

This ship got lots of retooled and repaints, enough to give each main Jedi one to pilot and combat.
