    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!

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
