    Comments: Y-wing starfighhters are powerful vessels in the Rebel Alliance fleet, with ample firepower that includes laser cannons and proton torpedos. The Rebel forces make do with whatever vehicles they can obtain, and the sturdy Y-wing is a good fighter for them becasue it can withstand heavy attack and still remain space-worthy. During the Battle of Yavin, Y-wing fighters fend off Imperial fighters to clear a path for the Rebels to reach the Death Star's vulnerable exhaust port. Rebel pilot Lieutenant Lepira flies Gold Four, the point Y-wing for Gold Squadron at the Battle of Yavin, but is shot down during that pivotal battle.



















    Points of Interest:
  • Y-Wing Fighter is a retooled version of the 2000 POTF2 version, which is based on the Vintage vehicle. This time around, the droid is not removable, the battery compartment is sealed, and the nose cannons are changed.
  • Lt. Lepira is a retooled version of 2004's Dutch Vander (Gold Leader). This time around, the figure has a new head.
  • R5-F7 is a repaint of 2006's R5-D4.
  • Both the loose R5-F7 and the attached version include antenna. Be careful when openeing it up, or you may lose one of them!
