Name: Yoda's Jedi Attack Fighter With Yoda & Super Battle Droid
Collection: Star Wars [Yoda/Attack Of The Clones]
Number: N/A (Class I)
Source: Expanded Universe (Hasbro Concept)
Availability: January 2013
Yoda pilots an attack fighter to blast Super Battle Droids. The fighter is designed for hyperspace capability, which allows the Jedi Master to fly across the galaxy on solo missions. The craft's compact size and two missile launchers make it an ideal attack ship for Yoda to use in battle against the ever-present Battle Droid army.
Well, we guess Yoda has his own Jedi starfighter. Why not? All the other Jedi do. Some will love and others will despise the 2013 Class I product line. Our affection for it lies somewhere on the fence. We like the new things that they’re bringing to the line, but in an age where cost makes things prohibitive and the number of different products that come out in a calendar year is diminishing at a frightening capacity we’d really like to see things get made that are based on things that can actually be scene in the films. Why does Hasbro go through all of this brainstorming to come up with neat but “crazy” concepts that extended well beyond the Expanded Universe. OK, so Yoda has a Jedi starfighter. Big deal. Why does it have to be 75% smaller than a standard Jedi starfighter. In other words, why introduce it in the Class I sub-collection? We aren’t huge fans of Episode II, but man are there many things that Hasbro has already tooled that can be improved upon with a fresh and new revisiting and we’d much rather see “almost definitive” things become “definitive” instead of all-new product that is “made up” or “make believe” instead.
Yoda and Yoda’s Jedi Attack Fighter (um, don’t Jedi use the Force and their respective starfighters for defense and never for attack?) are both all-new sculpts. Yes, in this climate where Hasbro should be digging out older sculpts instead of tooling expensive all-new ones, they’ve created an all-new Yoda from head to toe. Yoda isn’t loaded with articulation, but he does come with a ball-socket head, two ball-jointed shoulders and then swivel wrist and hip articulation. A permanent communications head set is molded to his head. He is accessorized with his trusty gimer stick and lightsaber and Hasbro was gracious enough to include a soft-goods cloak to finish his look. Something awful happened however at the factory level when it came to painting his eyes. If you look at the Yoda that’s featured in the picture on the back of the box and then the actual action figure, you’re going to be one VERY disappointed collector. We are hoping that Hasbro catches this travesty and runs a correction as soon as possible. If you have children, they would have done a better job painted on his eyes. The Jedi Attack Fighter is admittedly likeable. It has a removable booster seat for Yoda which we find quite humorous, but it’s great forward-thinking on Hasbro’s part because once it is removed, the cockpit area can then fit an action figure of “normal” size. The fighter also has two flip out cannons that fire projectiles too.
