Anakin Skywalker (Backpack Fires Missile!) - Movie Heroes Series #14, 2012

Anakin Skywalker


  • This version of Anakin Skywalker is only very loosely based on The Phantom Menace
  • The backpack was never seen in the movie - but Hasbro based it on a podracer engine - added two movable flaps on each side and gave it two movable handle bars
  • The backpack plugs very well into a hole in the back of the figure
  • The podracer pilot helmet fits tightly over Anakin's head
  • Anakin can grab the handle bars on the backpack quite well
  • The nice and dirty looking paint application on the tunic doesn't match the pants - which are kept entirely "clean"


Though still just a boy, Anakin Skywalker is already a gifted mechanic. He builds devices like a jet-powered backpack using bits and pieces thrown away by Watto, the junk dealer who owns the young slave. Anakin uses his mechanical ability to construct his own Podracer and rebuild a discarded protocol droid named C-3PO.
