Star Wars Electronic Power F/X Vehicles
Power of the Force, 1998
In 1998, Kenner released a completely new and improved X-Wing Fighter that was larger and more proportionally accurate compared to the 1995 release. It featured electronic lights and 12 real movie sounds & phrases.

The Kenner model shop created several conceptual designs for this vehicle lineup. Early designs for the X-Wing Fighter included a kit-bashed version of the 1995 X-Wing fighter. These early concepts are often used to pitch the ideas internally and to Lucasfilm.
As the design phase progressed, another model was created using a completely new sculpt. A glimpse of this design can be found in Kenner Toy Fair catalogs.
It included a larger hand grip with buttons to activate the various electronic features. The hand grip was later changed to a smaller fold-back design.
Kenner also pitched a Tie Fighter design as seen in this internal photo. However, an electronic Power F/X Tie Fighter never made it to production.
