Toyguide Update: Jango Fett’s Slave I

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Jango Fett’s Slave I from the revamped Class II assortment of vehicles in the 2013 Yoda line look.

PROS: This is a toy – plain and simple. It’s meant to cater to the young collector while offering a signature in-universe vehicle at an attractive pricepoint for parents and kids with an allowance. Slave I holds one figure/pilot well (Hasbro even took into consideration Jango’s jetpack when designing the cockpit) and the deco, while minimal is accurate in terms of color. It features manually pivoting wings (just like the super-sized “collector” version), cannons and a launching missile/projectile. I can totally appreciate what Hasbro has attempted here and it easily meets their goal of being a ship scaled down for smaller hands while maintaining the fun of a larger collector-target product. If Hasbro can produce this type of product to pave the way for more collector-targeted releases, then I’m all for it.

CONS: If you’re a stickler for accurate scale, realistic deco or a moderate number of features, there is obviously nothing for you here.
