In a recent report, we uncovered that the X-Wing Racer -a new convertible vehicle in the popular Galactic Heroes line- is a repaint of the TONKA Truck Adventures vehicle known as Dunes.


Rebelscum readers Dave and Kevin point out that it looks like Dunes was inspired by an old Kenner toy from the MASK line called Firefly! Check out these images of the old toy that inspired the new vehicle. Obviously, there are differences, but it's interesting to see the same concept adapted into the Star Wars universe.

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.
