Jedi Master Kit Fisto flies an experimental Delta-2 starfighter on several missions during the Clone Wars. The ship can separate into two vehicles, expanding its reconnaissance and patrol capabilities. Both vessles have integrated weaponry in case of attack.

There are quite a few figures that get a lot of attention in Hasbro’s toy line, and Kit Fisto is certainly one Star Wars character that Hasbro likes to consider for release time after time. And as a result, Kit Fisto’s various starfighters become viable candidates for the Mid Size Vehicle assortment, something that has become a staple in The Clone Wars [Shadow of The Dark Side] line look. Interestingly in the case of Kit Fisto, both of his Jedi starfighters to date have been exclusives. The one from 2007's 30 (77-07) line was a TARGET exclusive as was based on the Tartakovsky Clone Wars micro-series. Now we get another based on the Season 1 vehicle in Filoni’s The Clone Wars television show from Walmart. You already know that we are much more partial to Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars, but Hasbro has crafted an excellent vehicle for Kit Fisto based on the Filoni television show. Instead of orange, the vehicle is now maroon with lots of green details and it complements Kit’s beautiful green skin nicely.

The vehicle doesn’t offer anything new that we haven’t already seen before (as it utilizes an older sculpt), but it is cool to get another starfighter in another flavor that is nonetheless based on something that can be viewed in The Clone Wars TV series. The official name of Kit Fisto’s Jedi starfighter is the Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptor. Along with his astromech R6-H5, Kit Fisto saw quite a bit of action during the waning years of The Clone Wars. By the way, we hope that Hasbro delivers unto us a 3.75” version of R6-H5 to accompany this cool vehicle. The vehicle splits into two smaller ships and both are functional like the smaller vehicles in the Deluxe/Class I line. It's a fun play feature for collectors of all ages. This starfighter has an opening cockpit which is made for the new Kit Fisto action figure perfectly and has the typical firing projectiles which Hasbro tells us makes the vehicles more engaging. Other than that, there isn’t much new here. However, the unique paint job to this vehicle is very nice and accurately matches the one from the Lair Of Grievous episode.

The Lair Of Grievous episode was very exciting for most Star Wars fans. We all got a good look at Nahdar Vebb even though his first appearance was his tragic last. And we saw Kit Fisto do some major damage to General Grievous (which was reflected in the new action figure released in the first wave of this line). What wasn’t there to love? We personally tend to love any episode when Kit Fisto is a main part of the storyline because we are fond of his character. So we're just as excited to get his vehicle. Now let's get his astromech droid. We're happy that Hasbto took another chance on a different Kit Fisto Jedi starfighter vehicle in 3.75" scale. It looks like some of the Jedi-specific starfighters (excluding Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi) will consistently be store exclusives as evidenced by the trends thus far. This is fine with us, because that means that they will be more available that way. And you may be surprised by this, but this vehicle is a few dollars cheaper than the vehicles released in the general market. We find this particularly odd, but we are thankful at the same time because we will take savings wherever we can.
