Hi, I'm a new Star Wars collector, and was thinking of purchasing some vehicles like the ARC-170 fighter. Before delving into these purchases, I'd like to ask some questions regarding these vehicles to people who already own them.
1) Does the droid slot on the fighter fit every astromech droid, or is it designed to only hold certain specific droids?
2) After looking at how large the box for the ARC-170 is, I was wondering if this thing is in "accurate" scale with the figures? Or is it downsized from how big it's supposed to be in order to make it more playable, like how the GI Joe vehicles from the 80's were?
3) Speaking of scale, I've noticed most Star Wars vehicles are downsized for increased playability, such as the Republic Gunship, Millenium Falcon, AT-ST, etc. Are there any vehicles out there that are made to "accurate" scale, other than speeder bikes?
4) This question isn't related to vehicles at all, but I thought I'd ask it anyways. Why do so many Star Wars figures have limited articulation? Is this a cost issue, or an aesthetic one? I'm just to used to GI Joe figures, where they have tons of articulation and can hold almost any pose.
Thanks for helping.
