|Imperial V-wing Starfighter|
7 - 12
- The set includes the second V-wing fighter released in LEGO form; the first is the 2006 set 6205 V-Wing Fighter, which includes a V-wing in the red colors of the Republic.
- This set is the first, and thus far only, set to contain R2-Q2.
- Only R2-Q2's dome can be fitted to the V-wing, as there is no actual socket for the droid.
- Several Imperial V-wings can be seen in the last scenes of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, in the final scene featuring Darth Vader.
- The inclusion of R2-Q2 in a V-wing is somewhat ambiguous. Even as V-wings were redecorated with Imperial paint jobs, the Q7-series astromech droid (as opposed to an R2-series) remained red.
- This set was released shortly before January 2011 in some LEGO Shop outlets.
