"One of the toys we've be waiting for since it was mentioned at the Disney panel during Celebration V has arrived. The full-size Star Tours Starspeeder 1000 Vehicle Playset is at Disney Theme Parks for $54.95. It seats nine 3 and 3/4 inch figures, plus a pilot (which based on the ride should be C-3PO). R2-D2 (who can be swapped out for another astromech droid) and an IC-360 camera droid come with the vehicle.

There are plenty of sounds and dialogue from the ride available at the push of a button. Push down on R2 to hear him beep and whirl. Press the button next to him and the Starspeeder's lasers pop out, light up, and firing sounds are heard. Two buttons on the back of the vehicle open the doors, turn on lights inside, and produce the chime effect as you board the ride. Two other buttons on the back activate dialogue from C-3PO.

To add to the fun, there are four interchangeable view screens that you can slide into a slot in the front of the cockpit. Three are images of different locations you can travel to during the ride and one is a hologram of Yoda. When each view screen is locked into position at the front of the cockpit, they provide their own additional sound effect or dialogue.

So if you've been waiting to take you action figures on a Star Tours adventure, now you can. Enjoy the ride!"

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.
