The Clone Wars

First Look: Clone Wars Y-Wing Scout Bomber, Republic Scout Speeder Mini-Rigs

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 15, 2011

Hasbro has increasingly referred to their vehicle-with-figure assortment as "Mini-Rigs," and for a while it seemed baffling why. These vehicles were mostly bikes and guns, not exactly tiny versions of big-screen vehicles or off-camera hardware. Well, we got a couple of samples-- Y-Wing Scout Bomber and a Republic Scout Speeder-- and we will kindly eat our words now. Each vehicle includes an exclusive Clone Trooper figure and includes play features generally unseen in Hasbro's vehicles of this size. They're small, fun, and are arguably more than worth your cash if the word "mini-rig" gets you excited.

UPDATE: Added some notes on weapons storage and compatibility with other large vehicles.
