The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the next addition for the 2012 “Darth Maul” product line. We continue with the Class I/Deluxe Attack Recon Fighter with Anakin Skywalker set from The Clone Wars sub-line.
PROS: After being delayed for over a year, the Recon Fighter finally makes its way to retail albeit in a different deco and with a different/better pack-in figure. The 2011 Anakin figure gets an update with additional soft goods, a new left arm (remedying the prior useless “force-wielding” one), a new belt and new pilot-specific head sculpt. The fighter itself is a great toy despite it not really doing much, but Vintage mini-rig fans will instantly get a sense of nostalgia when playing with it.
CONS: The accessories are light for this set considering the pricepoint of about $20. Some launching projectiles or deployable bombs would have been an easy fix.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
