    Comments: Even at the beginning of the Clone Wars, Trade Federation manufacturing capacity quickly outstripped that of the Republic. Soon, breaking planetary blockades became highly dangerous, as Republic capital ships would be faced with twice their number on the Separatist side. Enter the Y-Wing starfighter. The low profile, heavily shielded fighter could fly directly into a storm of defensive fire, deliver a fusilade of missiles, and fly to safety as the enemy ships blossomed into flame behind them.

    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.
