These aren't paper toys. And they're only technically paper airplanes. These are high-performance, blow-the-competition-away flying paper machines. The ten planes in this book are for people who think they've seen a good paper plane or two. They're for the hard to impress, the playground veterans - the kid at the next desk who thinks he and his plane will get sent to the principal's office first. These are the planes that can prove him wrong.

Star Wars Folded Flyers will speed through the living room as well as they do in outer space. That's because each of the six-starfighter designs has been rigorously tested by the Klutz Aerodynamics Team. And they look as great as they fly because they are made from full-color, custom-designed papers – representing galactic vehicle exteriors, authentic to the last bolt. With five copies of each design, kids can have a fleet of Y-wings and X-wings at their command.
