Something called the BMF....you may have heard about this one...this ship was designed by Mark Boudreaux, who designed the original Kenner version as his first project when he joined. He has now gone back and added all of the features he always wanted to see.
Mark explains all the great features of this ship...4-seats in the cockpit, moving boarding ramp, lights & sounds, turbolasers, dialogue from all the scenes, smuggling panels, Jedi training area, Dejarik table, medical bay, and escape pod! >Whew!<
