In the vintage days, the toys would cross over from one movie title to the next, driving some completists crazy but giving a better shot at missed-opportunities to those who just jumped on board. Plus, most of the vehicles really were in the sequels the toy packaging was claiming to be - the X-wing should have come in "SW", "ESB", and "ROTJ" packaging because it WAS in all of those films.
However, the Naboo Fighter, which is a fine toy on its own and was actually in Episode II did not get re-released. Figures like Captain Typho and Padme CA can actually fit in the toys, they're costumed to fly this ship, yet if you didn't buy a Naboo Fighter 2 or 3 years ago, these new figures have nothing to pilot. If Hasbro wanted to make it different, they could have added a different paint job, fixed the cockpit seat/floor to hold Ric Olie (Padme CA and Typho fit wayyyyyy better in the Naboo Fighter than Ric there) by removing the lip at the battery hatch, even add the removable controls that came with E1 Anakin Pilot. Seems like a wasted opportunity to me, they probably didn't sell a TON of these from Ep 1, why not at least re-box 'em?
Yes, I know it seems like hypocrisy for me to say this when I'm against it for older figures like Greedo and Momaw Nadon, but I don't see it that way - the older figures from a few years ago could be done better now instead of just using those same molds, but the vehicles are a different issue than figures IMO - they often don't need as much updating as the figures and should be offered with more retailer/manufacturer faith behind them instead of less which is what we're currently seeing.
