PROS: Hasbro has revised the Class I assortment for 2013 – now including 2 figures as pack-ins. This is not only a great value in terms of price but offers great play value right out of the box. The vehicle itself is an all-new design and it’s fantastic as it’s very true to the mini rig concept from the vintage days. The fighter has a removable “booster seat” that allows for figures larger than Yoda fit in the cockpit and in an ingenious move, Hasbro’s design team built into the ship the ability to switchout the astromech domes with others from the build-a-droid/Droidfactory line. The feature affords collectors customizing opportunities as well as the possibility of redecos of this set in the future. Yoda is an all-new figure as well and it has a headsculpt with incorporated communication headset.
CONS: The deco for Yoda’s face is a little wonky, especially the eyes. Hopefully this will be cleaned up as more of these hit the market.
