The SSG BATTLE OF THE MACHINES Round 1 - Fight 9!
Are you ready for Fight 9???
We are still in the Preliminary Matches for letting the fans decide which is the Best Hasbro Star Wars Vehicle for All Time!
It's the Battle of Naboo tonight as the N1 Starfighter takes on the Droid Fighters of the Trade Federation!
The N1 debuted during Midnight Madness on May 3, 1999 with bright colors, exciting lights and sounds, and a $29.99 price tag. The ship makes a very awesome fly-bye audible, as well as breaks the silence of the later additions to the collection, with some rapidly firing green laser cannons! In case that's not enough to defend the Queen, a proton torpedo fires hard and launches rapidly away from the ship to destroy Naboo's invading enemies! The cockpit holds on pilot action figure, and also has a place to connect the Pilot Anakin Skywalker's flight control panel accessory, that gives figures a throttle and firing stick they can actually hold to command the craft. Finally, when the tail flare is added to the craft (for its basic assembly) the ship is longer than any other Star Wars fightercraft, with nice flowing lines and a cool, vintage craftsman look.
The Trade Federation meets the challenge of Naboo's fighter corps with their own Droid Fighter Squadron. And for originally $20, you actually got a small squadron when you bought this toy, as 3 (three) fighters came in the box! They fly in formation, connected by a handle you (their master) hold. But these light fighters are actually under your remote control! By using various triggers on the handle, you can cause the two outer-most wings to fire their missles! Or simulate battle damage by using other buttons to knock them out of formation, and pretend they got blasted out of the sky! Meanwhile, the center Droid Starfighter can be removed from the squadron and transformed into a walking battle droid fighter to support the Trade Federation's ground Troops! On land or in the air these small and agile fighters can gang up on the beleagured Naboo.
But You will decide which TOY should win!
