Image Bank: Attack Recon Fighter with Anakin Skywalker

By Mike — Saturday, March 10, 2012

Originally planned for release in a different color scheme last year and packed with an Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Attack Recon Fighter now includes an all new Anakin Skywalker

VEHICLE: As far as mini-rigs go, the Recon Fighter is scaled down Republic Shuttle where you can adjust the wings closed or in attack mode. It's compact, nicely detailed and painted and the included Anakin Skywalker figure fits adequately , although you'll have to play with his arms a little to have him hold the controls.

ANAKIN SKYWALKER: This all new Season 4 figure comes with 12 points articulation and a molded on commlink, so he's a little more specific to this vehicle or as a pilot. The soft goods skirt allows him to easily fit in the cockpit of the Recon Fighter. 

TOPPING THINGS OFF: Mini-rigs are cool, and we're happy that Wave 2 has new offerings. It's has good play and display value though no action features or firing projectiles. Here's hoping that the Obi-Wan version with different paint scheme can somehow find its way to a store or virtual shopping shelf.

The attack fighter has fold down wings so it can be transported in Republic gunships. Integrated cannons fully rotate for maximum attack potential in hostile engagements. [MORE IMAGES]
