Obi-Wan pilots the newly-designed Delta 7B starfighter while on a mission to return Jabba the Hutt's kidnapped son. The Jedi Master flies to Jabba's palatial stronghold on Tatooine to meet with the Hutt directly, but soon finds himself racing to the distant Teth system to aid in Anakin's assault on a Separatist stronghold. Kenobi discovers the fighter's combat capabilities first-hand as he faces waves of vulture droids. Fortunately, the Delta starfighter is highly maneuverable and armed with powerful laser cannons for just this kind of encounter! [2008 text]

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.
Status: Obi-Wan Kenobi's Delta Starfighter is an all-new vehicle.
