The A-wing pilot is a Star Wars minifigure first released in 2000.
Description[edit | edit source]
- First Variant
The first variation of the A-wing pilot has mainly green torso with black hands. Printing of a grey and black pilot vest is on the upper section of the torso, with a belt located at the bottom. The hips are black and the legs green. The face of the A-wing pilot is smiling and has eyebrows and a microphone by the mouth. His helmet is mainly grey and has a yellow visor.
- Second Variant
The second variant is very similar to the first, with the same helmet and general design. The face, however, is light nougat and is a simple smile, with no eyebrows or any other printing on it. In 2006, this minifigure had a dark transparent visor, whereas in 2009, it was included with a transparent yellow one.
Background[edit | edit source]
A-Wing pilots were members of the Rebel Alliance during the reign of the Galactic Empire. They were specially trained to pilot A-Wing Starfighters, a small very speedy and maneuverable fighter. A notable pilot was Arvel Crynyd, who was Green Leader during the Battle of Endor, commanding a squad of A-Wings. When Green Leader's fighter was hit, he angled his ship straight into the bridge of a Super Star Destroyer Executor, resulting in its plummet to the Death Star where it exploded.
