Attack from the sky! Wookiee warriors use their special assault flyers in battle to attack the enemy from above. Swift and highly maneuverable, the assault flyers swoop down to launch a powerful strike on invading ground forces. Take to the skies with the Wookiees and let the battle begin!

It must be quite the task to plan a toy line based on a Star Wars film. It seems as if Hasbro needs to have a deluge of product at the ready so that there is a constant flow of merchandise at retail. Size, cost and the sheer number of toys don’t ever become obstacles because there is enough energy and excitement to support the line. Hasbro really went to town with the Revenge Of The Sith line. They prepared no less than two dozen basic action figures for opening night (when the product could officially go on sale). And then all of the other sub-lines like 12 Inch Figures, Vehicles, Attacktix, Deluxe and hoard of other toys were equally available as well. The Revenge Of The Sith line was so well scheduled that Hasbro managed to keep new products steadily flowing into stores at a very even rate. Although it wasn’t part of the initial dump of products in April of 2005, the highly sought after Wookie Flyer With Wookiee Warrior was one of the items from the “figure with vehicle” assortment that collectors wanted the most.

The Wookiee Flyer is pretty screen accurate and we’re quite impressed with its size. You really can’t fault its scale and the pre-posed and pre-sculpted Wookiee Warrior that comes with it as a pack-in figure couldn’t be finer. Yes, it isn’t a super-articulated action figure, but how can you criticize how awesome he looks flying this thing? There is another place to seat a different Wookiee on the back and he would serve as the gunner. Not really a kids’ toy exactly, the only action feature is a firing missile projectile, but you really wouldn’t know it’s there unless you looked really hard for it. We suppose the other action feature here is the flapping “flying” wings. This is articulated via trigger at the bottom of the vehicle. But Hasbro did such a fantastic job incorporating all of the functioning parts to make the Wookiee Flyer seamless. The Wookiee Flyer can stand upright on its own. Much like a modern day helicopter, the Wookiee Flyer is the Kashyyyk version of any small chopper you see in our own universe. It really is a fresh vehicle for the Star Wars line.

The Battle of Kashyyyk was one of the highlights of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith. It was sadly much too short, but it really gave Star Wars fans a clear understanding of how adept the Wookiee species is at protecting its homeland. It was evident they would stop at nothing to keep their culture safe. And they also proved to be powerful warriors as well as brilliant users of technology, despite an affinity for seemingly ancient cultured weapons like shields and staffs. The included Wookiee Warrior is brilliantly sculpted, but it has very minimalarticulation. It really serves no purpose in the toy line except as a pilot for this Wookiee Flyer. That’s alright though because the Revenge Of The Sith basic figure line has given us plenty of Wookiee basic figures with much more articulation. You'll live. You will probably want to pick up multiple Wookiee Flyer With Wookiee Warrior sets because there were multiples in Episode III. Whatever you decide, know that Hasbro really developed a nice product here. This is one you will want to keep on that wish list.
