    Comments: The first of the Eta-2 model Jedi starfighters was this exhibition model, demonstrated at a secret test facility in front of the Jedi Council. Featuring many of the system upgrades and mechanical tweaks suggested by Anakin Skywalker, the ship’s agility and speed even when controlled by a clone pilot impressed the Jedi observers. Unlike other Eta-2 starfighters – built on a production line – this ship was hand built, and included many personal touches left by the technicians and droids that assembled it. Though it never flew again, the ship ended up in the personal collection of Darth Vader following the collapse of the Republic.

    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.
