2008 was an interesting year for Star Wars fans. The Force Unleashed was taking the property into new yet familiar territory making use of the latest technology and the Clone Wars series hit the airwaves after a big screen premier, proving again there would be an audience for any iteration of the franchise across any medium. LEGO doing what they do best, ran with it. Almost all of the sets that year were based on either the Expanded Universe or The Clone Wars. Of the many unique ships and play sets that came out that year, this was one of them.
