Star Wars Micro Galaxy Squadron Series 3

2022 Jazwares Action Fleet-inspired line

Curently Micro Galaxy Squadron Series has yet to be released. However, we know that Series 3 contains the 4 Republic Gunship repaints as part of the Grand Army of the Republic collection. And, people are finding the Boonta Eve Podracer pack in New Zealand, which contains Anakin's and Sebulba's podracers.

More recently, someone received a package of Eta-class Jedi Interceptors. The card back shows the First Order TIE, repaints for the Jedi Interceptor and Jedi Starfighter, and a slew of Blind Box offerings including the Treadspeeder and Cad Bane's speeder bike.

Series 3 Blind Boxes



  • Imperial Patrol Speeder - Patrol Trooper
  • Hover E-WEB - Stormtrooper
  • Treadspeeder - First Order Stormtrooper
  • Nikto Speeder Bike - Tusken Raider
  • Bad Batch BARC Speeder - Tech
  • Imperial Speeder Bike - Snowtrooper
  • Flitknot Speeder - Count Dooku (removable cape)
  • Starhawk Speeder Bike - Cad Bane

This was a really great round of Blind Boxes. The Patrol Speeder is probably my favorite with a lot of detail. Second would be the Nikto Speeder bike, which features my favorite Tusken Raider. Cad Bane and Tech look phenomenal with a lot of extra detail both in the molding and paint job. Jazwares painted the Snowtrooper in different shades to add contrast, and the bike is different from the Series 1 white bike. The Hover E-WEB has a poseable cannon, and the Stormtrooper has more painted detail than prior releases.

The Snowtrooper and Count Dooky are both Rare with Cad Bane being the Chase of this series.

Anakin's & Obi-Wan's Jedi Interceptor



  • opening wings
  • opening cockpit
  • retractable landing gear (3)
  • poseable Anakin Skywalker & R2-D2 or Obi-Wan Kenobi & R4-P17

For such small fighters, these are packed with features. The wings open smoothly, but stay closed well. I love the retractable landing gear that pop into place. Lastly, the cockpit in incredibly detailed and looks exactly like the filming models. For the figures, Obi-Wan is a rehash of the AOTC Jedi Starfighter version. Yet, R2 has a shinier dome now.

The open wings aren't angled exactly right, but come close. I do dislike the finger tabs on the wing tips as they seem unnecessary.


Inquisitor Transport Scythe



  • opening cockpit
  • opening wings
  • fold-down landing gear (2)
  • flip-down ramp
  • pop-out rear panel with full interior
  • interior has slot for most speeders to fit
  • poseable Grand Inquisitor, Fifth Brother, Reva

Considering I wasn't expecting much with this one, the Scythe really surprised me. It's got a great size with lots of features. The cockpit actually fits 3 figures, and the rear cargo area adds a lot of play value. Each figure has tremendous detail down to the lightsabers attached to their backs, as well as the red marks on the Grand Inquisitor's head. The color is overall charcoal, much darker than promo photos. Some panels feel smoother than others creating additional contrast. Finally, the wings have 3 positions: diagonally down, diagonally up, and straight up.

Also, I have to add that the front "teeth" parts snap into place and create panel lines where they attach. These lines are perfect and truly show how well-engineered this toy is.

Modification: if you want the figures to fit easier, cut a little off the clips in the center. You don't have to remove it all, just enough that the figures pop in easier. See the final photo.

Republic Gunship "Muunilinst 10"



  • same features as Series 2 Republic Gunship
  • poseable Clone Pilot, Red ARC Trooper, Blue ARC Trooper

As someone who isn't a huge fan of the original Clone Wars micro series, I love the designs therein. The Tiger Shark Gunship or Muunilinst 10 is a beautiful repaint. The blue isn't too dark, and the weathering looks nice against the basecoat. To top everything off, I love getting some ARC Troopers.

Republic Gunship "Plo's Bros"



  • same features as Series 2 Republic Gunship
  • contains BARC speeder
  • poseable Clone Pilot and 4 Clonetroopers phase I

Jaxwares released 4 Republic Gunships as part of the Grand Army of the Republic packs in Series 3. Each comes with 5 figures and a BARC speeder. They corrected the wing ball turrets, so the painted area now angles vertically. However, about 3/4 of the BARC speeders have the front cannons facing backwards.

Lastly, I want to commend Jazwares for getting the nose-art Aurabesh correct on both sides. Often I see decals with simply a mirrored image of the writing, making it Aurabesh reversed on one side. Jazwares got it right, and I really feel these Gunships are better than the Series 2 version.
