Blech ... avocado green, mustard gold, and orange?? It looks like what the ship would have been painted if Lucas had started with Ep I and AOTC was made in the '70s. Actually, scratch that--the ships in the OT never looked so dated as this (paradoxically).

Usually I am a fan of retro looks, but this color combination on a starfighter doesn't sit well with me at all. Fugly = pass.

Instead of reaching this far for Jedi starfighter repaints, what Hasbro should do is rerelease the aqua Delta-7 from the Clone Wars toyline and then do Saesee Tiin's green Eta-2 from season III of the Toon (I just checked, and I guess it is different from Anakin's green Eta-2 released earlier).

I want to get my hands on one of those aqua starfighters, I am nearly giving thought to leaving the hobby but I am slowly getting back into it.
I loved the obi Jedi Starfighter and I got to get an Eta-2 pretty soon.  :)

you know whats weird: i have no real love for the ships/tanks. but my wife questions why i don't like them? and even goes as far as to say that she thinks i should get them, and still i don't. that's weird. almost as weird as releasing a starfighter that has never been depictited before one that was i.e Saesee Tiin,asajj ventress,darth maul......

I think that Kit Fisto's Jedi Starfighter should have been an Eta-2 instead of a Delta-7.

maybe that way he would have been able to sit in it, maybe.

A question was asked about Fitso fitting in this ship & Hasbro said it did. Maybe we have to push farther.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!  So basically Hasbro totally ******* up the compatibility of a vehicle to a figure is our fault for not pushing harder? 

I remember they tried that excuse a few years ago with the fiasco that was the Anakin and (particularly) Zam Airspeeders, saying that the figures do fit, but you just kind of have to force them in there, and even then it's not a good fit. 

It's this type of thinking that is alienating people who collect this line.  If you can't make something compatible with the rest of the line, and particularly if you can't make a ship compatible with a singular character whose name is attached to the vehicle to begin with, then don't make the vehicle.  I doubt that anyone was really clamoring for the Snot Rocket to begin with, so the fact that an unrequested vehicle that wasn't even in the films OR the cartoon series from which it is allegedly drawn was made with no figure compatibility whatsoever, AND Hasbro refuses to admit blame for the noncompatibility issues makes this vehicle one of the more ridiculous failures of concept in many years.

I was able to make Fisto sit in his fighter.  I had to pop his head of 1st but he fits.  Of course even a Jedi needs his head.

That is exactly why I said that Kit Fisto's Jedi Starfighter should have really been an Eta-2 and not a Delta-7.  So he could fit in and sit in it.  I also think there should really be more Eta-2 repaints than Delta-7 repaints.

Yeah, I asked that one.  Eventually I figured a way to get the ROTS Kit Fisto to fit.  You have to fold the back part of the tunic skirt up and keep it in place with the head tails.  But what Hasbro probably didn't figure on is this:  There is so little give in fitting the figure like this into the cockpit that invariably the head tails are going to damage the sticker that's on the seatback.  Oh well.  ::)
