anotheR Site has pics up of the Kit Fisto starfighter - it's based on the AOTC starfighter, not ROTS.

At least it's not an overkill of the ROTS starfighters....

Of course - it's a Target exclusive - so I'm SOL on this one too....(Slicker, KH, Turbo...help??)

I'm happy it is an AOTC Jedi Starfighter but I'm still fairly underwhelmed.

Are they ever going to let the Starfighter die? Why is it that we can get the Starfighter in every color imaginable, but they can't re-release the vintage Cloud Car mold?

What next, one with a booster seat for Yoda?

Meh, at least it's not the ROTS one again. I think it looks pretty cool.

I find it odd, though, that he'd have a starfighter that's the color of his skin.

Hasbro is seeing a Green opportunity to make more money off of color variants.

Well, I actually like it. I'd rather have this ont he shelf than a rerelease of the E2 starfighter anyday. It's not something everyone might want, but imo it's alot better have a repaint of a vehicle than a straight repack. It'll add some diversity into my expanding fleet.

I think it looks pretty good. It's definitely better than I thought it would be. I still don't know that I'll buy another Jedi starfighter though.

Did they retool that?

It looks like the little wings on the side are up, without the side panels being off.

Maybe mine was weird, but my AOTC Jedi starfighter seems to have the damnedest time keeping the gun covers on of the wings are up.

I always thopught that feature was dumb, anyway. Cool on the ROTS one, though.

I wonder when Even Piell will get his own starfighter. BTW does anyone know how or when he died. I read most PT comics and books bt don't recall this one.

I'm disappointed that they didn't do one little cosmetic change.

Plo Koon's fighter was actually seen on film in ROTS. The CW one was in the ROTS deleted scenes, Mace's was in the CW Cartoon, but was this one seen anywhere? I'll probably try to get it anyway (No Target in my country) but I'm curious as to whether it's been around before of if Hasbro made it up.

Thanks pegger. looks alright. not totally sure about it but I think we need loose shots coz box art can be misleading colour wise. I think the other jedi starfighters have seemed too blocky and cartoony in their colours but it looks like they've managed to make this more space worn and grungey looking. maybe the factory can actally manage to achieve the same look on the final product.....

hahahahahahaha I kid myself.

In the first episode of the Clone Wars cartoon (I think), several AOTC-style Jedi Starfighters drop bombs on droids. There are red ones (like Obi-Wan's), aqua ones (like the 2003 one), and green ones (like this). So, it was kind of in the cartoon.

I really like the variants on the jedi starfighters. So far I have them all and think they are cool little ships. However, after this one and the Vader version I hope they take a break for a while on these and the gunships.

Funny that Target gets exclusive AOTC starfighters and TRU got exclusive ROTS starfighters.

I'll probably end up getting this one for the fleet, and put a ROTS Kit in the cockpit.

little prob with kit in the cocpit, the ep.3 version dosn't have the little slits in the side of his skirt that let him sit down, so it could be pretty hard to get him in.

Great high-res pics on the home page. Very much looking forward to this piece!

I saw this at Target today. The box is flamingly bright.

I didn't have enough loot so I had to pass. I'll have to get it next week at some time.

I got this the other day. It's nicely painted and cool-looking (though the droid is a little too orange). Unfortunately, the only Kit that can fit inside is the naked Clone Wars one, and he doesn't look very comfortable.

........and that's the one we're getting again in TSC wave 8.

I'm sure if he's flying his starfighter topless, the seatbelt must chafe something awful.
