I am a big fan of the vehicles in the Star Wars universe but I definitely don't have the space to accommodate those that were made for the 3.75" Star Wars line.
Hence when Micro Machines made these in the late 90s, I had to pick up most of them. However for this post, I will be focusing on the Rebel's star fighters!
These are not in the normal scale usually done by Micro Machines but are much bigger. What I find cool about these vehicles is that they have opening cockpits in which you can fit the figure (comes with the vehicle) in. Even thought they are mass market toys and were made in the 90s, I find the sculpting pretty impressive and look great on display. If I am not wrong, Hasbro continued this toy line for the other episodes of Star Wars (Ep 1 to 3) too!
The paint ops is decent and is not really sloppy. What attracted these to me is basically the ability to fit figures into the cockpit! I am a sucker for such things (removal helmets on figures being another...:P)
The vehicles come with a stand and 2 figures. The Action Fleet series was not only made for Star Wars but also for Aliens and Predator.
Overall, they look great when displayed together! I also have the vehicles from the Empire (Ep 4 to 6), Republic (Ep 1 to 3) and Trade Federation (Ep 1 to 3) which I will post later.

Nice that they gave us an A Wing pilot

Pity they did not give us a B Wing pilot unlike the A Wing
