Comments: Y-wings are durable, reliable starfighters that excel in close-quarters combat. During the battle of avin, Y-wing squadrons were influential in helping to defeat the Death Star threat. Designated attack fighters, Y-wings went one-to-one with imperial fighters as the Rebels attempted to reach the battle station's vulnerable exhaust port. Jon "Dutch" Vander was Gold Leader of the Y-wing Gold Squadron during the Battle of Yavin, fighting bravely against the powerful Imperial forces.

Points of Interest:
  • This Y-Wing Fighter is the same as the POTF2 version, which in turn uses the same mold as the Vintage version, without the battery compartment.
  • The color marking were not seen onscreen, but were used on an Expanded Universe version of the Action Fleet vehicle.
  • Also included with this vehicle is an OTC Guidebook that shows other toys in the Original Trilogy Collection.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
