I picked up a Tiger Electronics Jedi Starfighter the other day. It's about AF size, same length as an A-Wing, but it's got this pistol grip underneath so you can run around and zap other starfighters. If I can manage to take apart the pistol grip and saw off a large chunk of plastic underneath it could make a fair (but not great) representation of the ship. In the absence of an AF Starfighter what do you think of the Tiger version? (not my crude attempt to 'accuratise' it!)

I've not seen the Forcelink Jedi Starfighter in the UK yet so I can't compare it with the above.

Oh, and I see Tiger Electronics is a subsidiary of Hasbro. 'We're doomed..'

USA 3 , Portugal 2. Well done guys!

I think the pistol grip's absence will cause a large gaping hole in that toy.

My plan is to buy the Force Link junk if it ever goes on clearance, but basically to yell at Hasbro if they never get the Jedi Starfighter AF onto shelves.

How big is the Forcelink version? The Tiger one is about 5 inches long.

I'm with you on the yelling at Hasbro. I'm worried that if sales of the old AF remolds are low then they won't even bother with new AF. :crazed:

Forcelink are *slightly* larger than Die Cast/X-ray scale, I think.

Hey Yorkie

I was in Preston TRU today and they were just putting the force links out.

I don't like 'em - not quite in scale with anything else.

The paint job on Slave 1 is awful (turquoise??).

May possibly bag 'em for 50p in a discount store in 18 months.

Cheers
