Internal Presentation Board

 Kenner originally planned to rerelease Boba Fett's Slave I ship and two new ships to allow children to recreate the space battles from the Shadows of the Empire storyline.  While Dash Rendar's Outrider made the cut, unfortunately Price Xizor's Virago didn't. Foam mockups and conceptual package designs were created for this ship.
