30AC Saesee Tiin's Jedi Starfighter
« on: October 25, 2006, 02:09 PM »


Clicky for big shiny pictures

It doesn't look half bad I guess (and it's better than the recent Kit Fistomobile), but I'm undecided and unenthused. I don't love it, and I just don't hate it either.

There's enough "real" Jedi Starfighter paint variants Hasbro could do, that I'm not interested in dorky-looking made-up ones. What they should have done was Saesee's green Eta-2 from season III of the Toon (it is different from Anakin's green Eta-2 released earlier). Although odds are good that this will appear in the Clone Wars subline sooner or later.

I'm going to pass on this one simply because I've been passing on all the other Ep2 Starfighter repaints (CW, Plo, Kit).

I do think it looks spiffy though with the orange colors... kinda like a "General Lee" Starfighter.   :P

i actually think its quite unique and cool with the Saesee 'back of the head' markings and the range paintjob-it just doesnt make sense that there arent any saesees hanging on the pegs above it...  ???  ???

I am all over it.  I am a sucker for ships, even repaints so I must have it.  I do like the General Tinn paint job too.

this unique saesee-inspired paintjob makes me excited for what they can maybe do with shaak ti. red and zebra-striped paint scheme on an aotc repaint starfighter sounds VERY kool to me.  ;D  8)
