Awesome, thanks for the color conformation. Now the question is, how different is it from Obi-Wans?





For me, not different enough to warrant wasting $21.64 on a new starfighter.

Yeah it looks like they just switched the blue and white. This will be an easy pass for me as well.

Easy enough to just put an Aayla Secura figure into my blue Obi-Wan Jedi starfighter.

Thanks RQ! This definitely looks like a clearance purchase.

Saw many of these today at a new Target near me.  Too similar to Obi's for me to buy though I think.  Even the droid looks like Obi's.

Normally I just buy exclusives when I see them but for this one I may just adopt that rational. I am really tired of this ship, I use to really like it but now I am just plain bored of it. I have to complete the Jedi Fleet so because of my personal addiction I will have to get one, but I only willing to pay $12.

So what Jedi are left that need their own personal fighter....let's see what exclsusives Hasbro may have in store:
1. Ki-Adi-Mundi - Brown and blue EP2 style (so he keeps the cone theme going)
2. Luminaria - Green and black with spots EP2 style
3. Shaak Ti - Red/White EP2 style (After all she needs a ship to escape to Felucia)
4. Yoda (Needs a height chair or booster seat) - Green and brown Ep3 fighter
5. Agen Kolar - Brown and white EP3 fighter

I still love the sculpt but I think there's a point where I can only hang so many of the damn things from the ceiling, ya know?  If they'd varied the ship a bit with something sort of wild and unique looking I'd reconsider, but the ship is really just Utapau Obi's...  More or less.

I swear the droid on the box looked like Obi's even!

If I see one cheap I too may buy it, but only then.

I'm pretty sure it is, since (and EU folks, correct me if I'm wrong here) Obi-Wan had R4-P17 throughout the Clone Wars, and R4-G9 was a late addition with the blue JSF.  Secura's fighter in "Obsession" that Obi-Wan borrowed had an R4-G9 lookalike in the astromech socket, so I don't think it would be a stretch to assume it was, if not the same droid, one of the same lineage/fleet as R4-G9.

And hey, does Secura's ship come with the correct label sheet, or did they stick Anakin's yellow JSF sheet in there, as well?  :P

But yeah, big pass on this one for me (I may have said that already in this thread; apologies for the redundance).  I think the only way they'd get me to buy another Actis-II Interceptor would be doing a film-accurate version of the Utapau JSF or the Mustafar JSF.  Other than that, no more for me.

Believe or not....There is absolutely NO sticker sheet included with this ship.  I just found this out tonight at our geeky SW meeting, so this was news to me.  I guess there's lines painted on the droid, but that's all you get.

I'm still buying one though.   :)

This is an easy pass.  I will wait for clearance if I do decide to pick it up.

This was a surprise to me as well. At first I thought I was missing the sticker sheet, but then when I saw that there weren't sticker label places indicated on the instruction sheet for the ship, that's what tipped me off to the fact that there weren't stickers at all.

Seems kind of odd, but oh well...

Were there any decals whatsoever already applied to the ship (I'm particularly wondering about the cockpit interior and the droid body), were those "painted" on (akin to the Republic logos on the V-Wing), or is everything just blank?  With some vehicles like the 2003 Saga A-Wing, that kind of thing isn't very noticable, but to not include and/or apply labels to an astromech droid body is just ridiculous.

I think Hasbro needs to just stop with the JSFs for a long while after this.  If the lack of and/or inclusion of incorrect label sheets is any indication, I think they're getting tired of dealing with them as well.

The droid is slightly painted, but nothing significant other than the colored bar-arms (not quite sure what else to call them) that run horizontally beneath the dome. That's it. There are no other pre-applied decals, so the interior of the cockpit is decal-free.

It does make this ship look rather "plain".

I picked this up today as was surprised how plain it is without the stickers (pre-applied or otherwise). Ther is no weathering to speak of either (scratches/blaster damage). Rather dissappointing for an "exclusive" - Hasbro really phoned this one in.  :-\

I picked this one up today. I'll add some weathering to it myself.
