Saga Mace Windu's Jedi Starfighter
« on: February 10, 2006, 06:07 PM »
I believe I can see this in one of the Toy Fair preview pics, but you really can't tell that much about it. Assuming I'm not just seeing things it is the RotS design.

Judging by the early ToyFare pics, it appears that it is an EP3 fighter with a purple color scheme similar to Mace Windu's. Count me in on this one. :)

Me too...  I've become a fan of the ship's sculpt since I found it to be to-scale when I got it on clearance so I'm all for repaints of it.  I don't get why Kit's is purple like Mace's though but whatever.

So, it's a Purple Ep3 version, eh?

As much as I like that Ep3 ship, I'll pass and save my $20 to spend on more basic figures. 

It is cool looking though...

That's not Kit's it's Mace's.

Kit's is suppose to be an exclusive, they don't show exclusives at Toy Fair.

That is true, they don't usually show exclusives there... the toy Fair report that the purple one is Kit's could certainly be wrong.  Would make sence that the purple one at Toy Fair is Mace's which will be everywhere along with Vaders TIE and Anakin's ship.  Guess we still need to wait and see...

Well, if the one shown at TF is the one this thread is about, I'll probably use it for Mace anyway. ;)

yeah, once we get a half-assed Mace Windu figure it'll be a fun ship to put him in. :)

I like it, it looks nice...  Little bummed not to have a good loose droid for it though, as I'm not a big fan of always displaying it with the droid inside, but I think the ship is quite nice whoever it may belong to.

Kit's will be welcome to if it's coming and is the ROTS sculpt.  The AOTC fighter lacked a bit to me due to the action feature but the ROTS one is spot-on so I'm all for the reuse of this beast.

Now where's my goddam blue McQuarrie A-Wing?

yeah, that's the McQuarrie A-Wing paint design...

Due to blue-screen processes in filmmaking at the time, anything "blue" was omitted from production and the A-Wing became red...  That's why "Blue Squadron" was nixed from the film but showed up in the novel and radio dramas actually.

The Blue A-Wing is a beauty though and since it'd be cheapity cheap for Hasbro to make I'm all for it.  The sculpt isn't totally accurate to McQuarrie's drawing however, but I'd actually prefer the film accurate sculpt of the toy with the unique paintjob.

The Green A-Wing was one of my favs from the past, a Blue A-Wing that actually had some "history" to where it came from would be all the better to me.

That Falcon I was wondering what was up with it's paint...  That's the YT-1300 Freighter from E3 then?  Weird (I refuse to call it the Falcon regardless of Lucas's thoughts ;)  I hate coincidences).
