Desert Sail Skiff

Possibly the greatest mini-rig ever, and a vehicle that actually appeared in Droids!

Very cool mini rig. I had two of these when I was a kid, I never got the skiff back then. It was really cool that some of the mini rigs were featured in the cartoon. If the Star Wars line had continued to do well, it would have been cool to see these in POTF and or Droids packaging. A mock up was featured in the Toy Fair catalog with a POTF sticker on the package covering the Jedi logo, but that's the closest it ever got. Don't even get me started on the Droids Series Rebo band mock up Crying or Very sad How cool would that have looked on the shelves??!!!

Was there actually going to be a Droids Rebo Band set? I had never heard of that before. That would have been cool!

This is probably one of the better mini rigs - I dont own any, eventhough I'd like to. I used to have a couple as a kid, but they are long gone. It would be cool if Lucasfilm would incorporate some of these 80s designs into the CW cartoon - it would give them reason to release items like this again. I could totally see this ship packed with a CW Nikto pirate in the deluxe line.

Yeah, they were the same as the ROTJ figures, but the packaging was cool!

Here's a photo from the catalog:

Thanks for the link! They do look good in that Droids packaging!
I agree with Darth Sidious that the mini skiff could work in the Clone Wars. It would look great being used by the pirates! Since Hasbro brought back that old POTF2 sand skimmer with Anakin, I wouldn't be surprised if they have been considering this one as well.

Yes, this Desert Skiff mini-rig is great. I have this (somewhere), having gotten it back in the day.

I like how it's used in the "Droids" cartoon, which is without the sail - it looks more streamlined somehow.

Yeah, it was really neat that it was in Droids. I had the vehicle at the time that Droids was first airing on TV, but I didn't remember it actually being in Droids until I rewatched the cartoons a few years ago.

I've wanted one of these for awhile, and today I found one while passing by a garage sale. I noticed a few AT-AT walkers, so I stopped. Of all the vintage / modern items they had, this was the only thing that interested me. The price - only $2. All the parts were included, and it even has the decals.

Awesome. Garage sales and yard sales can be a great place to find a diamond in the rough.

Many of the older figures my kids play with were ones I bought at a yard sale for a dollar each!

I agree, and I love the fact that it was in the Droids animated series. I have a feeling I might pick up some of the others. Jumping Ewok
