Obi-Wan Kenobi pilots an experimental Jedi starfighter while tracking General Grievous. The Jedi Master flies to a rendezvous with a contact that has information on Grievous' last known location. The fighter is armed with laser cannons in case of trouble – something Kenobi always seems to encounter!

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Delta Starfighter, or Obi-Wan Kenobi's Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptor to be more precise, is a wonderful all-new vehicle for Star Wars collectors, or to be more accurate, The Clone Wars collectors. We’re always thoroughly impressed when Hasbro manages to squeeze so much into a little space, but how about when two vehicles can be incorporated into one? That’s exactly what they’ve done here and it’s enough to put smiles on even the most miserable of collectors. There is a great deal of play value with Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Delta Starfighter, and you should probably prepare yourself for many more future Jedi starfighter vehicles to utilize this sculpt over and over because it worthy of its merits. Obi-Wan Kenobi is fist up to get his vehicle based on this all-new sculpt and what you probably need to know right away is just how awesome it is. The sculptors at Hasbro obviously has been given some extra money for The Clone Wars tooling budget and they’re showing it off loudly and proudly with a great vehicle like this one.

The vehicle isn’t a simple “pull it out of the box and play with it” toy. It has multi-faceted playability. As mentioned, the center fuselage slides out from the body of the vehicle which in turn leaves with you with two “complete” vehicles, albeit smaller ones. But when the two pieces are separated, the smaller vehicles are comparable in size and each have their own respective cockpits and such. The center fuselage has two wings that are spring loaded and flip out when separated from the main hull. And if you pull out the missile, it serves as the third leg of the landing gear. (There are two “sculpted” landing gear legs already present on the propulsion rockets.) The other half looks like some distant relative of an Imperial TIE fighter. “Most” of the ship is on this half of the vehicle, including the main cockpit and it also looks like a cool miniature vehicle in this transformed mode. The paint job given to this vehicle is very nicely done and in an age where Hasbro takes shortcuts, it’s nice to know it was sacrificed on this vehicle’s deco.

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Delta Starfighter made its debut appearance in The Clone Wars film. And with R4-P17 at its helm, she fired electronic bolts at the Jawas who had already attempted to scavenge parts from it. It has also made various other appearances in a few television episodes as well. Astromechs from both The Clone Wars line and the realistically styled line fit like a glove in the droid socket and so far we haven’t had any trouble finding an Obi-Wan Kenobi figure to pilot the ship at all. This vehicle is functional in every form and interpretation of the word. It will stand out as one of the finest vehicles Hasbro has made for 3.75” scaled action figures. It’s very important for vehicles to have versatility and the aforementioned functionality.... which it does. But it’s even more important for a starfighter to come with a droid socket that believably fits an astromech droid... and this vehicle offers that up to collectors too. What more could you request from Hasbro? Maybe we shouldn’t have asked that question, but this vehicle is a great start to appreciate what might be coming down the pike.
