    As a fan of the Clone Wars Twilight, im really liking this toy's ship mode. Love the idea of it being a POS , or guessing it is, don't watch CW much.
    (reminds me of the Winnebago in Spaceballs.)

    There's a moving arm cannon on the ship belly with a removeable blaster for bot mode's hands. The wing is also removeable & clips on to his arm for a shield. No landing gears.

    You could mimic a storage bay or something with these panels

    fan mode- you can turn his arm into a force blaster thingy if ya want.

    That little R2 just opens & closes into a pod, the head does'nt turn

    Robot mode's pretty horrid, that Anakin head's just too hard too look at. Looks like ass. It's the only thing I can't stand about these Jedi SWTF's they all have shit heads. His dress & little legs don't help it much. The head roof can be removed for some motormaster customizing if needed.

    Here's the back of his head if you think you can get something going with that :lol

    I like him, just not as "anakin" try, A grizzled alien robot bounty hunter like a lockdown, han solo and cad bane hybrid, who likes to look like he wears a hooded tunic.

    Oh, the r2 engine CAN stay on his "tunic skirt" in storage and look okay.

    Only drawback is the hands, one of which on my first was NOT attachable to the peg.

    Dammit, Muffin. I didn't want this toy, but you actually made it look good. (Except for the head, of course.) Yet another fail on the part of Hasbro's photography staff.

    You owe me 16 bucks. :mad

    Someone had him on sale for $10, Target I think...might have been Walmart.
    Picked him & the Y Wing up for $20 total.

    For some reason I find this guy oddly appealing based on those pics.
