    Comments: One of the most terrifying sights for Republic forces in the opening battles of the Clone Wars was that of a large group of Hailfire droids racing at insane speeds through the acrid smoke blown out of the exhaust ports of the missiles they carried. Approaching Hailfire droids meant impending doom for any Republic formation, as dozens of missiles smashed into ground and air targets alike, raining fire and hot metal on those not hit by the initial strike. Though relative fragility and low ammunition limited their use, they were still highly effective during the opening strikes of any battle.

    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.
