|Republic Striker Fighter|
9497 Republic Striker Fighter is a Star Wars: The Old Republic-themed set released in June of 2012. It contains a model of a Talon-class Republic Starfighter from The Old Republic and three minifigures: the Jedi Master Satele Shan, a Republic Trooper, and the Astromech Droid T7-O1.
Like the 9500 Fury Class Interceptor, this set is based on a starship from The Old Republic, namely the Talon-class Republic Starfighter. The spaceship is made of a body, with a cockpit nearer the back, and two wings, each of which can rotate forward, changing the ship from an 'airplane' look with straight outstretched wings to the shape of an A-Wing. At the back of the ship are two engines, one on each side, which connect onto the body. They do not rotate with the wings. Both wings each have a cannon and two flick-fire missiles mounted on the undersides. The missiles have green tips. The starfighter's exterior is predominantly made up of red pieces, with some white and orange for detail work. At the back of the ship are two clips, one for Satele Shan's lightsaber handle with a blade, and a second for the second blade. Above them is a small flap. At the front of the ship are two flaps which hinge downwards. Three minifigures are included in the set: Jedi Master Satele Shan, the astromech droid T7-O1, and Jace Malcom. Satele Shan is armed with a double-bladed blue lightsaber with a chrome handle. Her body and legs are green, with golden and dark green markings. She has bare arms, but dark grey gloves. The Republic trooper, who is actually Jace Malcom , is armed with a gun cannon. He has white armour with red arms and markings. His body has a black strap printed on it. He has a scar on his head, and black hair. The droid is built with a new design. It has a square body, normal legs, and a round head, larger than other astromech droids. It has yellow, blue, and black markings.
Republic Striker Starfighters were used by the Republic before and during the Great Galactic War. Some of these starfighters were deployed in the first battle of the Great War; however, almost all of them were destroyed by the Sith Empire's forces. Several of these fighters were known to have been used many years after the initial conflict, during the Battle of Alderaan.
