    Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace Ring

    Found this Friday thanks to someone's post in Glendale CA.
    I had a $25 giftcard from buying Mario Galaxy Wii, so I thought I'd splurge. Although 29.99 was a better price. I don't like TRU's practice of raising prices ala Y wing, etc. Not that long ago they went bankrupt and closed a bunch of stores. You'd think they would want to sell product and be competitive.
    Oh well, enough rant.
    The box is 1 inch taller and 3 inches wider than the regular ships and the same width.
    Although the Starfighter fits the standard box (Kit Fisto), I don't think there would be enough room for the ring.
    I was hoping this would be released in a regular assortment reapainted, but the box would be different. It may fit in a box like Darth's Tie fighter though, which is deeper than the regular box. We'll see.
    There is a "display stand", but I almost threw it away. It is a clear molded piece of flimsy plastic (figure bubble quality) that has Star Wars molded on it. It holds the back end, while the ring rests on the ground. It is not quite tall enough though (1/2" too short).
    Still a cool toy, but not 35 dollars cool.

    Thanks for the photos, that looks alright. The little stand may be cheap plastic, but it's cool they threw it in, gives it a "flying" look and makes it displayable since it wouldn't be without it.

    The designers had 1 caveat when making this thing, the JSF had to be able to fit THROUGH the ring the way it does in the movie. Looks like they pushed that to the edge.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Yeah, it's definitely not designed for the novice pilot, the ship just barley makes it through the ring.
    You do have to be careful not to throw the stand away with the packaging. It could be an inch or 2 taller as well. It's not a snug fit either, it really barely balances in the groove of the stand.

    I didn't think this would be out for about another month. Looks pretty good, though.

    Can you pour drinks from that ship stand? This would be an excellent opportunity to have Hasbro make a Star Wars wine glass!

    To be honest, I was hoping this would be about 20% bigger. I look at the Titanium Series version and it's nearly perfect because it's so big. This is a runt by comparison and just not as easy to get excited about. I may buy it if it looks appealing in person and I can't find any other SW to get at the time, but I haven't rushed out and bought it since I saw this thread, that's for sure.


    BTW Toydarian, I just noticed, the ring is attached upside-down on your last photo, the open end of the clamps goes on the underside of the ship, not the top. You're in good company though, Hasbro did the same thing in their display at Celebration IV this summer, I had to point it out to them so they could go fix it.

    This looks nice, but I like the newer style Jedi Starfighters the best. I hope they come out with one for those as well.
    THANKS FOR THE AT-TE & FALCON HASBRO. NOW IT'S TIME FOR A LARGE TANTIVE IV!

    Thanks JediTricks, I hadn't even noticed. When I set it up, it was about 3 in the morning. I think I looked at one of the box pics showing the ring "clamps" and didn't register the fact it was showing the bottom of the ship. Fits much better now!
    Still a pain to balance on that stand though.

    I think that is the best solution! Starfighter in one hand, glass of merlot in the other. I've always wanted an excuse to get these...
