Those funny guys at the Hasbro art department injected some Strangelove humor in the background insert of the Attack Recon Fighter with Anakin Skywalker. UPDATE: Thanks to a tip from Yakface, we have more on this noseart design!

Thanks to an observant Facebook reader, we spotted a little Easter egg in the backround art featuring a Clone Trooper bronco busting on a rocket. Perhaps as an ingenius nod to the Slim Pickens role in Dr. Strangelove?







It's hard to decipher the Aurubesh, but a no prize to the reader who does and posts it in our comment section. 

Definite T-Shirt material!

UPDATE: It turns out that this is one of many noseart designs used for the Clone Wars series. The translation is, "I Come In Peace." Thanks again to for the info!







It is I COME IN PEACE. I got most of the letters, but the remainder are under the door. The letters shown are icomeinpe

Bingo...give the man a no

Bingo...give the man a no prize! :)
