Re-enact classic Star Wars battle scenes from the Millennium Falcon's gunner station!

The Power Of The Force “2” [Green/Freeze Frame] Gunner Station sets probably looked better on paper than in toy form. Attempting to recreate some of the fiercest moments from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Kenner/Hasbro crafted a small series of scoped and sliced dioramas that don’t offer collectors the full picture of what’s getting represented but offers “enough” to create an admirable environment for collectors to enjoy. Perhaps the Gunner Station sub-line would have fit best in the deluxe range. After all, they’re the same price point and contain about the same amount of parts as a Deluxe figure does. But they decided to make it its own sub-line instead. The Millennium Falcon With Luke Skywalker Gunner Station is large once assembled, and essentially gives collectors an idea of what a “true scale” Millennium Falcon might look like in the 3.75” scale range. We’ll never get something that big in this scale, that is evident, but it’s nice to see what it might potentially look like.

The nice thing about the Millennium Falcon With Luke Skywalker Gunner Station and the Millennium Falcon With Han Solo Gunner Station sets is that they interconnect with each other, very similarly to how some of the Electronic Power F/X figures do. But they also look fantastic by themselves. Kenner/Hasbro tooled “new” figures for these sets. Yes, many of the parts are based on previously made sculpts, but there is quite a bit of newness also like the head sculpts that sport radio headsets so they can communicate with each other while being attacked by the Galactic Empire. Luke Skywalker and Han Solo fit nicely in the seat. There isn’t too much wiggle room to get them in place, but once you do they’re locked in pretty tightly. The seating mechanism rotates back and forth, in an estimated 90-degree motion. And then you can turn the lever on the back of the chair to activate the play feature here which is the firing missile projectiles function. The set looks great with or without the projectiles in place.

The included Luke Skywalker figure turned out pretty nice and is unique to this set. Based on 1998’s POTF2 [G/FF] Luke Skywalker [All New Likeness], this time the figure has an all-new head sculpt, cod section and skirt, and slightly revised extremities (the arms and legs). The figure is also noticeably taller this time around as well. Because of this, it might not be incorrect to refer to this figure as all-new, but it’s evident it is based on molds of previous figures. He sits a tad awkwardly in the “Millennium Falcon” but with a little futzing you can make it work. The set up of this toy isn’t perfect. With the figure in the cockpit, the seating falls backward and down on the base. It cannot sustain the weight of the action figure, so we find this quite disappointing. But if you hold the control knob on the back, you can swing Luke Skywalker left and right, up and down and recreate the battle he and Han Solo had with the many TIE fighters attempting to blow them from the sky. This set has its moments, but you probably won’t find it a necessary purchase.
