I mean, the Ice Cream Maker Guy/Willrow Hood had been a combination joke/minor EU thing for like 20 years before they released that figure, and I think that whole line was similar stuff like video game characters, random alternate outfits, designs and what not.

I think in A New Hope, the blasters were mostly real guns firing blanks, and then by Empire Strikes Back, they had the budget to make entirely fake guns.

IIRC, the E-11 blasters based on the Sterling SMG’s are mostly firing blanks in the OT. It’s definitely the case for almost all the stuff in A New Hope, as you can clearly see shell cases ejecting and is very much the case for the Leia shooting face. I think you still see it a bit in Empire too, but there are cases in the OT of them dry firing at points as the cut down magazines only had like 3-5 blanks. By the prequels, it’s definitely all props with usually nothing more than a light.

The crazy-good Hero players can basically hold their own against everything but a crashing starship, and sometimes that's what you need to swing the map

In the beta and the first year or so of Battlefront 1, the A-wing basically was a Hero unit and they had to make changes to it over multiple patches to nerf it. It unintentionally had a very small hit box compared to every other fighter, so any halfway decent pilot could jink and juke easily enough to avoid incoming fire. At release, it also came with the same shield ability as the X-wing, which greatly reduced the damage it took for a bit, so good timing with that allowed pilots to zip away with its already great speed. This also had the bonus of a bug, only for the A-wing, where it made it immune to collision damage from ground units, so you could just literally fly through AT-STs and instant kill them without taking any damage yourself. The guns fired very quickly and accurately, so coming down in a steep dive could ruin objectives or clusters of the enemy better than any other fighter in the game.

The devs eventually fixed the hitbox issue a few months after release. Then they made ground AA weapons like the ion torpedo and turrets fly faster and have longer ranges to bridge the gap with all fighters, but it was clear the A-wing was the biggest source of complaints. They made it so the shield ability reduced weapon power while active, and eventually took it away from the A-wing entirely, replacing it with a speed boost. The A-wing was complained about a lot more than any Hero unit in that game since in the right hands it was so dominant. For certain maps, notably very open ones like Hoth and Jundland Wastes on modes like Walker Assault and Supremacy, they could just do loops out of range of infantry weapons and rain fire down on objectives and completely prevent the other team from gaining them unless you crashed.

They were tons of fun :getin:
