There were rumblings a while back that the Starfighter would come with an Anakin figure - that was what everyone thought would be the preview set. Then that was scaled back and the preview was vehicle only. Shortly after that, I did hear rumors that the ship would come with an Anakin figure in a window-box just like Obi-Wan and his starfighter did for AOTC. The exclusive this time would go to TRU instead of KB.

Yeah, I remember hearing about those rumors of an Anakin Pack-In with a later version of the starfighter too....

Maybe that is all this is - The Sneak Preview Starfighter plus one of the Ep3 Anakin figures?

Damn, I hope it's not another different Anakin....

A much better exclusive I think would have been Obi Wan's ship with severe battle damage and several buzz droids, with a new Obi Wan.

I'd rather get PLo Koon's ship instead, he's my favorite alien Jedi.

Well, our answer just showed up on Scum... windowboxed Starfighter with an Anakin figure... but the ship has a green deco and white gun turrets. Its tough to tell if that is a different Ani or not.

Does the green deco make any sense?  At what point does his fighter change colors? ???

He flies a Starfighter to Mustafar, but you can't really see in any of the pics so far if it is his original ship, or a new one later in the film. The latter is the only way it could make sense.

I could have sworn someone else had a green ship though. What color is Plo's ship?

What color was Saesee Tinn's in the CW series.  He takes off same time as Mace does in his purple one, I'd swear it was green.

It's a light, almost teal green.

So then are we just looking at a Hasbro blunder, copying the switch with the A-wing that we just saw?  I suppose we'll have to wait and see the film, but I'm a wee tad cynical about this one. 

I really like the color scheme of his regular/pre-release version so I'm less keen on this one.  Given that I've already opened the first ROTS Anakin figure, I'm not so keen on this ship.  Clearance prices are fine though ;)

Possible difference: the pack-in Anakin has articulated knees, something the first Anakin ROTS figure does not.

Good Lord.

Window box.  Ouch.   :'(

Sign me up for two, please.   ::)

Sucks, of course.  But thank God they've at least changed the color, mistakenly or not.  I'd hate to have to get a whole 'nother one of these just for the Pilot Anakin figure.  Dumb, dumb, dumb...

It's probably a goofy color thing like Hoth Han Solo.  It's blue! It's brown.  Anakin will fly a yellow...no...green Starfighter. 

To be honest I was not going to pick up Anakin's JediStarfighter.  However, I might buy this with that Anakin figure.  Weird how something like that makes it more appealing to me.
