Micro Galaxy Squadron by Jazwares


At this years UK Toy Fair Jazwares showcased a new line in their Star Wars “Micro Galaxy Squadron”, a new line of toys that boasts to be the first authentically scaled vehicle line in Star Wars toy history.

I’m not sure why, but this is something that I’ve always wanted and my first impression is that this is a very promising new range of toys. The ships are broken down by size:

Assault Class — Millennium Falcon and similar sized vehicles

Starship Class — larger vehicles including Slave One and the Razor Crest

Transport Class — including the Troop Transport

Starfighter Class — X-wing, Jedi Starfighter, TIE Bomber etc

Light Armor Class — TIE Fighter, AT-ST and other similar modes of transport

Scout Class — Speeder Bikes and other single person small transport vehicles

At the moment, I have no ideas what these are made of, but a look at their X-Wing suggests perhaps an injection molded plastic. The detailing don’t look as good as you’d find on the X-Wing games miniature, but I’ll wait for in hand photos before i make my final judgement.

It also looks like the Millennium Falcon has a removable top and perhaps some internal view is available. I wonder whether this is some kind of playability and that perhaps it comes with some figures, or figures are available?

I’m delighted that the OT Falcon is here, but I’d pick up a ST or Solo version too. I also like the box which allows for display without removing. Release date and price points are still to come, but i’ll definitely pick up two of the Millennium Falcon.

Thanks to Jedi News for the article and photos and be sure to check out their web site.

A long time Science Fiction fan and Star Wars collector, my collection focus has taken a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship and I thought that i'd start this blog to keep track of my collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as i progress.

    hmm, “Assualt Class” typo ouch
    besides, the X-Wing looks very underwhelming in detail, though just being a prototype perhaps
