Count me among those sick and tired of jedi starfighter rehashes...  we're up to like 6 of the E3 version (which averages out to a release of that sculpt once every 3 months or so) and 4 of this version.

Enough already.

(Read this like you are singing the 70's Flash Gordon movie Queen theme song)
Sing it with me:

RE-HASH!
...AHH AHH..Saviour of the universe
RE-HASH!...AHH AHH......
Seemingly there is no reason for these
Extraordinary intergalactical upsets...AHH AHH
RE-HASH!

I will buy one.......sucker I am!

Classic!  ;D

I agree. But what's worse is that there are people buying every one of these. I mean, can't Hasbro make a new vehicle instead of repainting the same ones over and over? I mean, think about it:

Episode 2 style Starfighter list
Obi-Wan's SF
Plo Koon's SF
Anakin's CW SF
Kit Fisto's SF

Episode 3 style Starfighter list
Anakin's SF (2 releases)
Obi-Wan's SF (2 releases)
Mace's SF
Vader's SF

EDIT: I forgot Anakin's green SF and Obi-Wan's blue SF. So that adds up to 12 SF releases!

I am so done with Jedi Starfighters. I have the AOTC red, Anakin's CW, and Anakin's and Obi-Wan's from the opening scene of ROTS. That's enough.

I don't have any AOTCs so I'm in on this one. I also need about 3 for customs.

If you just need some of the Episode 2 SF mold, then just go on eBay and get some old ones cheap instead of buying these for $20 a pop. :)

Why customize these?  At this rate, two years from now Hasbro will have released them in every color visible to the human eye.

The real kick in the sack, is that Kit cannot even fit inside. I like building my fleet but c'mon mix it up a little. How about rehashing stuff in this price point people really want like:

1. AT-ST
2. Geonsian fighter
3. Dewback with new Sandtrooper and an extra rehash of the POTJ version
4. Jabba with Throne dias 9Even though i painted a killer version of the old one. See my customs page link)
5. Tie Interceptor

But lets look at this from Kit's point of view..........

I can see the look on Kit's face when Mace told him about his purple ride and his Purple Clone posse.
Kit had to do something to protect his staus on the council and impress Aayla.
So like an old Impala car, he bought an old Jedi Starfighter and tricked it out.

Take that Windu! He is green and so is his starfighter! Purple my ass.

I'll pass. I've yet to buy ANY Jedi Starfighters, and I'm not going to start with an oddly colored one.

I am a sucker for ships.  So I'll take it.  I really like the AOTC fighter and with this one I am that much closer to Rainbow Squadron, just like Rogue Squadron but with force powers and a litter gayer.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

Hmmmmmm.... I'm withholding judgment until I see some better pictures. It looks kinda promising, but I wish they'd used the ROTS fighter instead.

Does anybody have photos of the Darth Vader starfighter yet other than the photoshopped one?
