Hasbro showing CollectionDX the Sith Infiltrator at the 2007 NY Toy fair.
Today I will be reviewing the Sith Infiltrator from Hasbro's Star Wars 30th anniversary collection. It comes packaged in a nicely illustrated 30th anniversary box with the ship and a pic of its pilot Darth Maul on the front.
Removing the Sith Infiltrator from its box is a snap with hardly any assembly involved. All you need to due is snap on the two front panels and your off! No pain to apply stickers involved, this is a trend I wish Hasbro would stick with. The ship is constructed of nice high-quality materials making it very sturdy with a nice feel.
The first four pictures give you a quick walk around the ship. Notice that this ship's design just looks plain mean! This thing just oozes with Dark side of the Force.
Front view with the wings open really give away this ships TIE fighter lineage. I almost think that from the side with the wings open it looks a little like a Top Fuel Dragster.
The next 2 photos gives you a view of the nicely detailed bottom side and top of this ominous looking vessel. Note the button on the bottom of the cockpit, when pressed it opens the side wings. Also, the landing gear is adjustable and removable.
The top opens to reveal Darth Maul's comfortable, well appointed, detailed cockpit.
In the next four photo's you get to see my favorite feature about this ship. The front end of the ship splits open to reveal even more firepower. Included in this concealed array of weapons is 2 spring-loaded missile or droid launchers. You can use either of the two different supplied projectiles shown in the third and fourth pictures.
I love this ship, I feel it's one of the coolest Star War's vehicles released to date. Even though the scale is off, Hasbro was still able to pull off a good looking feature packed toy with tons of play value. If you don't have it, get it! You can still find it cheap enough on Ebay.
