|Anakin's Jedi Interceptor|
January 1, 2012
The set includes a dark green Jedi Eta-2 Actis-class interceptor, a brick-built Mustafar mining droid, and a mining platform. The Interceptor is the main part of the set. It features an opening cockpit with room for one minifigure, a slot for an Astromech Droid (in this case, R2-D2), flick-fire missiles under the starboard wing, laser cannons, and opening s-foil wings. Five minifigures are included: Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2-D2, Nute Gunray, and a Security Battle Droid.
After Anakin Skywalker lost his yellow Jedi Interceptor aboard General Grievous' flagship, the Invisible Hand during the Battle of Coruscant, he stole a dark green Interceptor from the Jedi Temple and traveled to Mustafar to execute the Separatist leaders, thus ending the Clone Wars. Anakin then dueled his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, above Mustafar's lava rivers.
- Both Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have dual-sided heads in this set.
- This is the first Eta-2-style Jedi Interceptor that has a slot for an Astromech Droid instead of merely fitting its head piece to the ship.
- This is also the first Eta-2 Interceptor to have flick-fire missiles.
- The Nute Gunray minifigure has been redesigned for this set to match his appearance in the live-action movies. This figure has a sloped brick instead of legs, to represent a gown or cloak. This is currently exclusive to this set.
- In the US and Australia, this was orginally a Target exclusive, but it is now carried by all major retailers, though still rare in Australia and New Zealand.
- Despite being a set based on Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the official LEGO website had this set categorized under "Clone Wars", rather than "Episodes I - VI". This was later corrected.
- Though it is called Anakin's fighter, Anakin's fighter was lost in the Battle of Coruscant and this was used by him after he was renamed Darth Vader.
