EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Use the force to power up the Star Wars Force Link Resistance Ski Speeder with Captain Poe Dameron figure set. 

The Ski Speeder isnít as modern as some of the other fighter jets used by the Resistance (Rebel Alliance) and because of its older design, it certainly requires an adept pilot like Poe to fly it. The 17-inch wide speeder uses a stabilizing strut to help it balance through alien terrain. For display, kids can fold down the legs on either wing and load the Poe figure into the cockpit. For play, there are multiple features built in to stir kidsí imaginations and recreate moments from the movie. Press the big button at the center to eject the right wing for battle effect, while kids can also shoot off projectile darts from the vehicle with a pull of the trigger. The Poe Dameron figure comes with an attachable headset and blaster and is posable at the waist, neck, and arms. The figure stands at roughly 4 inches tall.

As part of the Star Wars Force Link line, kids can elevate the play of this playset by pairing the Ski Speeder and/or Poe Dameron figure with their Force Link, which is sold separately as part of a starter pack. Slip your Force Link on either wrist and grab hold the figure or the starship. With the Ski Speeder, the Force Link will register the vehicle and make sound effects as if you are flying and entering a space battle. The Ski Speeder's easy-grip handle at the base makes it easy for the Force Link to quickly register the vehicle and for kids to pretend to fly around with ease. 

 Place the Poe Dameron figure in your hand and the Force Link will register the figure and respond to your moments with the figure with phrases and sound effects. which are perfect bringing the action to life. Keep tapping the Force Link to hear new phrases and sound effects from the movies. 

Is It Fun?

On itís own this vehicle playset is great for classic roleplay with a key character from the Star Wars  films as well as the battle-action of this starship. But because this set is part of the Force Link line, kids can elevate the play with their Force Link, which are perfect for bringing the action of the film and their imaginations to life. 

Who It’s For

The Star Wars Force Link Resistance Ski Speeder with Captain Poe Dameron figure set is for ages 4 and up from Hasbro. For fans of Poe Dameron as well as the action of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, this playset is great for spurring imaginative roleplay with the Force Link.  Independently though, we think kids on the younger end of the age spectrum will find this toy just as fun for basic action figure and vehicle play.

What To Be Aware Of

This playset can be paired with the Star Wars Force Link, which is sold separately as part of a Starter Pack. Three AAA batteries are required to power-up the Force Link. To see the full review of the Force Link Start Pack, click here. 

When using the Force Link with figures, it works best for little (aka kid-sized) hands. We found with our own big hands it was more difficult to properly hold the figure so that the device registered it. Figures must be completely centered over your palm or the Force Link wouldnít register it properly.
