About This Vehicle
  • The Vintage Collection Y-Wing Fighter Vehicle is another stage in the very slow evolution of the Kenner Y-Wing Fighter from 1983, and for the first time since the original toy, you can fit an Astromech droid into the droid port. All versions released since 1999 have had a moulded droid behind the cockpit. This version is extremely well painted and doesn't require additional stickers. All the playability from the original toy are present in this version including a button activated dropping missile, a rotating top gun, and lever activated rear landing gears. Sadly, you take the good with the bad, as the struts at the 'wing' ends are still not securely fastened to the vehicle, and are quick to fall off if grabbed wrong.
  • This version also features a newly designed cockpit with a retractible 'targeting computer' and plastic plugs to cover over the two screw holes found on all other versions of the toy.
