Lego Anakin's Jedi Starfighter Review

Anakin Skywalker is one of the most skilled and daring fighter pilots in the Republic. His amazing piloting abilities make him a powerful ally and a formidable enemy Anakin and his former master Obi-Wan Kenobi battle deadly droid fighters while on a dangerous mission to rescue Chancellor Palpatine, who has been kidnapped by Separatist forces.

Anakin's Jedi Starfighter in my opinion is one of the better Star Wars vehicles made to date. It does not utilize the cheap flimsy toxic free plastic as some of the previous vehicles (AT-ST or Jawa Sandcrawler).

The sculpting for this new vehicle in the Star Wars Universe is outstanding. It is somewhat suppose to cross the Original Trilogy with the New Prequel Trilogy in terms that this ship has crossover design features such as straight lines, the Tie Fighter cockpit window, Snowspeeder cannons, and more while still retaining the technology of today with the new Trilogy in retaining that old (Episode II) Jedi Starfighter lines. One feature that I like is that R2-D2 is not only represented as a plug but he is removable so you can insert in a real R2-D2 action figure. The pop open wings are a nice feature, which remind me of the wings on Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator. That with the firing missiles and landing gear really makes this ship a great toy.

The paint detailing of this ship is very good. Not only does it have that new feeling to it, it has the painting style that this ship has seen some use in battle. It has that used in look and feeling that George Lucas wanted with the Original Trilogy. Lego Toys
