N-1 Starfighter Packaging & Assembly

The packaging of the N-1 Starfighter pays a nostalgic tribute to the vintage Star Wars action figure toy line by Kenner from the 1970s and 1980s. Mirroring the classic design, the box features the Kenner logo and a timeless silver border on both the front and back, evoking the essence of the original era.

Exploring the N-1 Starfighter set reveals two Vintage Collection figures, including an exclusive Mandalorian figure presented on a single card, alongside Grogu, who was plainly wrapped in paper. The carded Mando figure, although previously featured in the Vintage Collection The Rescue 4-pack with different forearms, boasts a distinctive card image tailored specifically for this N-1 Starfighter release.

Both figures fit well into the N-1 Starfighter cockpit, allowing for a comfortable co-piloting experience with Grogu perched on Mando's lap. The Din Djarin figure is equipped with a blaster, a removable jet-pack, a knife, a beskar spear, and the darksaber. However, it's worth noting that a blaster rifle was not included in this set. For detailed insights into each figure, refer to the individual figure entries of VC292 Din Djarin and VC Grogu.

The setup for the N-1 Starfighter is incredibly swift, typically requiring no more than five minutes. The process is self-explanatory, but for additional assistance, an included instruction sheet is at your disposal. Bid farewell to the era of stickers; this remarkable vehicle comes entirely pre-painted, streamlining the assembly experience.

N-1 Starfighter Instructions

Included in the package are two distinct display stands. The larger one, featuring a black base, elevates the N-1 Starfighter in flight mode, allowing for a higher placement on the shelf with customizable tilt adjustments. On the other hand, the smaller stand enables the vehicle to "hover" above the ground, facilitating interaction with other figures as if it were "parked." This dual stand offering is fantastic, providing you with a range of display options to seamlessly integrate the N-1 Starfighter into your collection space.

The Droid Socket & Storage

Hasbro provides two different options for the N-1 Starfighter's droid socket. You can either position Grogu inside or utilize the socket to showcase a droid dome. Facilitating Mando's entry into the cockpit involves lifting the entire top, creating ample space for the pilot. Notably, the storage area, which replaces the room for a full-size astromech, cleverly accommodates the Darksaber, a knife, a spear, a jet-pack, and a blaster rifle (not included). This ingenious feature ensures that accessories are neatly stored, eliminating the need for them to clutter the shelf.

Overall Thoughts

The N-1 Starfighter makes a striking appearance in the Book Of Boba Fett and the Mandalorian TV series, captivating viewers with its cool aesthetic and earning a considerable amount of screen time. The vehicle has translated exceptionally well into a meticulously crafted toy. The design and paintwork are nothing short of impressive, imparting a premium feel when cradled in your hands.

The N-1 Starfighter doesn't just stop at aesthetics; it offers a plethora of display possibilities. Whether you choose to showcase it with the droid in the back or opt for Grogu's company, various display stands cater to seamlessly integrating it into your collection, be it part of a dynamic diorama or a standalone masterpiece. The vehicle embodies everything one could desire, delivering a comprehensive and satisfying package.

While the inclusion of a ladder for the pilot's cockpit entry or an astromech dome could have been welcomed enhancements, the overall offering from Hasbro stands as a testament to its greatness. It's a wonderful ship and display piece and if you enjoy the adventures of the Mandalorian make sure you add the N-1 Starfighter to your collection!
