Yep...

RotS Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter

No pictures yet, but it's another re-hash of the same ship with new colors...  :-\

I think it's cool they're doing one for him.  He's my favorite alien from the PT.

As long as we don't get Mace's pimp-purple one from Thursday's Clone Wars, I'm ok, but they're pushing it with this.

I thought they would go for Saesee Tiin's fighter if anything.  All of the backstory on him has always been about what a great pilot he is.  I guess he doesn't do much piloting in ROTS.

What color is Plo's ship? Is it in the CW cartoon?

According to these scans of ROTS game cards, it looks as if Plo Koon enjoys "old school" fighters.  If this is correct, his ship (toy) should be more in line with the AOTC offerings.  We'll have to see I guess.

Another pic of the game cards, slightly larger.

Oh, so instead of yet another Ep3 Jedi Starfighter repaint for this one, we get a repaint of a 3-yr old  Ep2 Jedi Starfighter for Plo's ship?

In fact, it looks a LOT like the piant job from Anakin's Clone Wars Starfighter slapped onto the Ep2 Starfighter...

Yeah, that's what I noticed too.  Plo Koon is one of my favorite "new" characters from the PT, and probably my favorite alien Jedi, but I don't see this ship joining my collection.  I have limited space for ships the way it is, and if its just an AOTC repaint I think I'll pass.

To me, this SMACKS of GL throwing Hasbro a "bone" as it were and putting in a couple of the old-school Delta-7 Aethersprite Jedi Starfighters so Hasbro could simply re-release the AOTC toy with different paint ops.

Personally, I'll be okay with it if they continue to balance re-paints/re-releases with new vehicles - looking at the cards - I want a V-Wing even more now!

Yeah, there is a cut scene from the newest animated CW series.  It had Plo talking to Anakin.  Plo says "Anakin I really love your Jedi Starfighter design.  It's way wicked badass!!!"  Anakin replies "Hey Plo you can have it if you want it man.  I just saw the newest Jedi Starfighter designs and they ROCK!!!  Kenobi and I are going to get them since he's on the council and all."  Plo excitedly says " You are da man!"  Anakin says "I know.  Don't you ever forget it.  I...am...the...man! (flexes his muscles underneath his Jedi cloak as Plo rolls his eyes under his mas)." 

Yeah, not much to do at work today.

This is a movie question really but...

Is Plo Koon's starfighter the one that Bail Organa uses to track down Yoda and Obi-Wan?

I think I recall that somewhere Bail Organa gets the tracking beacon from a Jedi Starfighter and uses that beacon to hook up with Obi-Wan and Yoda.

I know this is the wrong answer ;), but I actually like it.

Of course story-wise it doesn't make much sense for Plo to copy Ani's paintjob....

At least the ship is in the movie. If you check out the "Making of" book addition that was posted on Hyperspace, it mentions the location and reason for the ship being in the movie. It actually makes sense.

Much more than forcing the toy out, at least.

The supplement doesn't necessarily explain why Plo Koon's still flying around in one of the older models though - or why it has a design similar to Anakin's.

Perhaps the rest of the book will....
