CW Obi-Wan's Delta-2 Jedi Starfighter
« on: July 25, 2008, 07:48 PM »
Hasbro's Presentation showed a new version of the Jedi Starfighter (from the CW series) is on the way in December (according to the date).  It's Obi-Wan's version, but I'm sure we'll be seeing LOTS more of these over the next few years.  I do like it though, and it looks like maybe it will hold a full astromech in there.  I'm always down for any Kenobi ships, so I'm looking forward to it.

Yeah, we will get every Jedi from the series with one of these repainted.  It does look good.

I like how it has a slot of an actual astromech droid.

I see that Hans's Hideout has posted a new image of this ship. 

I was sort of on the fence on this ship, but I think I've convinced myself to buy at least Obi-Wan's and Anakin's (you know Anakin's deco is coming).  The droid socket looks so much nicer in the center compared to the AotC version.

I wonder if it will fit in the Hyperspace Ring or not...  ???

I wonder that too now...

Love the droid socket.  That alone will prompt me to buy the new JSF's...  Very cool design.  Hasbro knows how to milk me. :(

Yeah, I have to admit that the droid socket is a nice gimmick. Might pick this one up myself.

I also like the design of this starfighter a bit more than the AOTC model (kind of wish it would have been used in the movie as well).  I've been thinking about dropping prequel vehicles (lack of space), or just cutting back, but like Jeff, I'll likely at least grab the Obi-Wan and Anakin versions of this starfighter - I always planned on picking up Obi-Wan's ships along the way.  As far as inevitable repaints, I think I'll steer clear, unless the show really makes them appealing (although if Yoda has a starfighter, it might be tempting if cool).

Personally, I think they should have started with this design. I'd would have been more consistent from a droid placement and features point of view. The astromech would have started in the middle then moved to the side with the pop-out solar panel feature, then transitioned to the EIII interceptor model.

I like it.  I'll buy it and the dozen repaints they'll make.  Doesn't make much sense to have a cockpit window for the pilot though.   :-\

I was just looking at the boxed pic of this over at RS, and I noticed it says on front of the box "Fighter Seperates Into Two Vehicles!".  Has anyone heard about this previously?  I wonder how that will look/work?  Maybe another mini-rig-ish type vehicle similar to the BMF Falcon's escape pod/mini-fighter.

I noticed this too. It looks like the middle section removes and the back portion shape resembles the EIII model having a forked fuselage:



I wonder if this feature will be in the animated series?

Whoa....that's just trippy man.   :D

At least Obi will be able to see where he's going now.  He looks a bit pissed that he can't see, no?
