This Dutch Vander action figure was released in
2004 in the Star Wars SAGA series.
Hasbro gave the figure nine joints and included
two accessories (helmet, blaster).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- Y-Wing pilot Dutch Vander (Gold Leader) was released individually carded
- The figure's helmet fits very well over the head, with the chin strap sitting on the chin and the visor covering the eyes
- The chest box is not removable
- The cable going from the bottom of the chest box into the flight suit pants is removable
- The blaster fits well into the left hand, but only very loosely into the right
- Dutch Vander stands securely on his own without help from a stand
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, swivel left forearm, swivel right elbow, 2 swivel legs
Gold Leader was the comm unit designation for Rebel pilot John Vander's Y-Wing during the attack on the first Death Star. He previously had led a squadron at Renforra base, and he proudly wore the emblem of Specter Squadron on his helmet. He was killed during the Battle of Yavin.
