    Comments: Once Alliance engineers perfected the combat and environmental refit of the civilian T-47 airspeeder on Hoth, modifying similar speeders to other extreme planets became simple. As workarounds and techniques filtered throughout the Rebel data network, the T-47 became a common display of Alliance airpower, especially against Imperial armored infantry. Worlds on which the Rebellion had previously been forced underground by seemingly invincible Imperial walkers suddenly exploded into open war. Though no force in the galaxy could stand against the full might of the Imperial army, the modified airspeeder gave the Rebels an undeniable edge.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
