    SSG BATTLE OF THE MACHINES Quarterfinals - Fight 7!!!

    There's nothing like the 4th of July to bring the family together for a bang!

    Er well...some bangs really blow up in their face and rip them apart!

    So for tonight's SSG Battle of the Machines, we bring you The Family Feud!

    "Boba Fett, come on down!"

    "Now Boba, you're ship is 7 years old, right?"

    It's worth a lot to me.

    "Released in 1996 as part of the Shadows of the Empire toy line, this repaint of the mold used for the vintage Boba Fett's 1981 toy accessory was an exciting chance for early collectors of the modern line to expand their toy ship fleet during the beginnings of the Star Wars renaissance. Slave One features a removeable side panel that allows playtime access to the interior of the ship. So Boba Fett can walk up his extending boarding ramp and into his cargo hold until he makes his way to the multi-position pilot's chair, which can be pivoted up into its flight position in the cockpit, with the use of a remote lever. Once its ready to fly, Slave-One can receive your help with a manual liftoff, but gravity will reposition its flight stabalizer wings all on its own - unless you lock the secret trigger on the carrying handle in back, and make the wings resist forward motion and act like braking flaps to help Fett achieve some of his trickier flight maneuvers. This Kuat Systems Firespray class light patrol craft also features twin, forward, pivoting laser cannons that operate on a linked firing system. Slave One sports a very detailed, battered and battle-worn art deco, easily making this toy one of the best paint jobs on a Star Wars toy vehicle in the history of the entire line. Finally, a bounty hunter's work is never done until he has captured its prey. Slave One comes ready to hold the Carbon Frozen Han Solo prop included with the toy!"

    Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold.

    "Well, Boba, maybe we should put the whole ship on hold. You're father might have someting to say about that. Let's bring him out now."

    "JANGO FETT: come on down!"

    It's always a pleasure to meet a Jedi.

    Well Jango, it seems to be there's a bit of a dispute going on in your family. Your son is going to be 14 years old in the next movie and wants to get his learner's permit from the DSV (Dept. of Space Vehicles). But you have some concerns about what he'll do once he gets a hold of the family's transportation, don't you?"


    "Well Jango, it seems like you've got Slave-One just the way YOU like it."

    I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

    "Well, the 3 seat Firespray Class patrol and attack craft is packed with hidden features. To start with, there's no tracking all of them! If you manage to attach a tracking device onto the hull of Slave-One, it's onboard systems will detect it and by flipping a pannel on the toys fuselage, you can instantly destroy any detection devices, or repair the ship to "brand new." What's more impressive is the firepower packed in this baby! After manually rotating the craft's stabalizer wings into flight position for fast manuevering, hit the hidden weapons control knob to pop open a secret hatch to reveal a quadruple firing rapid launching missle system! And it really works! Extra missles are stored in the back so you can always find the firepower you will need to hunt Jango Fett's prey. But sometimes you gotta scare them out a little - that's ok too. Slave One comes with 4 rapid release plasma charges that can also be deployed like space mines just in case it gets a little harder to pin point your quarry. Or if the contract says dead-or-alive, use them in combination with the missles to just blast them into one big disintegration! It's tough to outmatch or outgun Hasbro's all-new Slave-One!"

    It will do its job alright. I'll garauntee that.

    "Now Boba, you seem a bit upset about all this. Your father doesn't think you're ready yet to handle all the features loaded onto his ship. And what do you have to say about that?"

    He's no good to me dead!

    "Wow! This is getting to be quite a heated family argument! Boba's seriously threatening his father! Jango?"

    Getting impatient. There can be no mistakes this time!

    Well don't lose your head over this yet, Jango.

    Tonight, both the plaintiff and the defendent have decided to settle their dispute here in our forum: The Quarter's Finals!

    Lasers and Gamorreans, as members of the jury, you will hear each sides' case in this matter, and then come to your verdict.

    Now you will decide, which squabbling relative holds the keys to the best version of Slave One?

    Will it be Boba Fett, or his father Jango Fett?

    Find out now in "The Case of the Learning Permit!"

    Gimmicky firing weapons don't impress me. I voted for Boba Fett's Slave I. It was one of the best vehicles in the Vintage line. They slightly improved it for the modern line, AND they included a trading card with it.

    I have the classic slave 1 but I dont have or have even seen the new one. Ive seen pictures of the new slave one and it looks well done but the old slave one has a place in my heart as it was my favorite toy when i was younger so I will have to vote for Bobas' beast(although it is the same ship)

    I don't have Boba's but based on firepower you would want Jango's ship. A bounty hunter needs firepower and Jango's slave 1 has it.

    Boba's ship VS Jango's ship is like a Chevette VS a Corvette!

    Some folks who don't have this vehicle don't realize: the two ships are less than a half-inch difference in size but they are definitely NOT THE SAME SCULPT.

    Hasbro started from scratch to create the new Jango Fett Slave-One. It is completely retooled. That's all I'll say for now: that in toy terms, these are completely different ships.

    I voted for Jango's Slave-One. Boba's is cool (I own this one) but all it can really do is hold one figure and second in the cargo area. Based on what I've seen, Jango's looks like it can do this plus more with a better paint job.

    In a way this is a tough one. I do like both ships a lot, but in the end Jango's wins out for me. The POTF Slave 1 is nothing more then a repainted vintage ship. There not many good things say about either. But it has a rotating cockpit and came with a Han in carbon (which is very lame in the POTF version). No electronics, figures don't in cockpit, that stupid side hatch, and no room for other figures is just the short list for completes. Jango's on the hand has great sculpting to it, the cockpit hold three figures nicely and I like the missile firing and drop changes. But it too has its short coming. No electronics, no ramp, and the cockpit doesn't rotate. In the end I had to sit them both down and ask which would I have liked better as a kid. The answer was Jango's.
