to get things cleared up, it is an x-wing. if you dont believe me, then watch the whole speeder chase with the audio commentary on and at a certain point, john knoll will speak and tell you exactly where the x-wing and three tie fighters are at.

On the DVD it's at 16:57. On the lower left side there is a trench lit from below. The X-wing and three tie fighters go up the trench.

Looks like someone else gets the Star Wars Homing Beacon. This is verbatim from what was sent out from the e-newsletter.

They are in there! During the nosedive on Coruscant, they pass between Zam Wessel's speeder and Anakin. Problem is it's tough to see them since there is a load of other ships passing between. First the TIE then two laser blasts, then an X-Wing chasing it. You will laugh when you see it.

Just bought the DVD of AOTC yesterday, and the commentary mentions it. When Zam is being chased straight down (long shot, both speeders in view), in the VERY bottom left an X-wing is pursued by 3 tie fighters, as in the trench run from A New Hope. You have to zoom right in and slow it down, but it is there!As for why, it's a gag, Lucas knows about it, big deal! It is, after all, a movie, and not real!

This is an Egg. Just as the speeders are diving and downwards there is a trench to the left of screen. If you have super eye sight (or a zoom function) they are there. Want confirmation? Listen to the directors commentry on the DVD, Rob Coleman points out exactly where he put it.

I can verrify that this is a real easter egg, besides slipups.com already has this " easter egg. " You see I get e-mails from starwars.com and one day I recieved an e-mail that had a list of easter eggs some were already here yet some weren't accepted. Of course if Lucas's e-mail says it's an easter egg it's an easter egg.

Just because the fighters were usd by the respective armies, doesn't mean that they built them. The X-Wing, or Incom T-65 Space Superiority Fighter, was used because of it's capabilities, not because it was manufactured by the Alliance.

The tie fighter I cant explain but X-wings are very old fighters long before the war of the Empire and the Rebellion. Also it might not have been an X-wing but rather a Z-95 Headhunter. The X-wing was modeled after this REALLY old fighter then modified to become better.

Thanks Snoopy, Jimmymac's right I get the star wars homing beacon. And if George Lucas's official homing beacon says it's an easter egg, it's an easter egg.

The ships ARE there and they were put in on purpose. They can be seen in the bottom left part of the screen and are mentioned in the audio commentry of the DVD.

While you have horrible pictures, if you zoom in all the way and watch it you can clearly see three Tie-fighters chasing one X-wing. It's a good egg.

Just to put the argument to rest, according to every source i've seen the X-Wing was created by incom engineers, who were sympathetic to the rebellion, during the reign of the emperor, and when the empire decided to punish them for their sympathies many incom officials escaped to the rebel alliance with the plans and prototypes for the X-Wing. It was not made before the rebellion let alone before the empire. I have no idea what a tie would be doing there, but the other ship would have to be a headhunter.

Okay... There's a ton of stuff we've seen already in Eps. 1&2 that are pretty much deliberate plants. Stormtroopers? X-Wings? Ties? Oh my! These aren't slipups. I doubt they "accidentally" appeared. As far as the X-Wing goes, this is way too early for it. I have a ton of source material, as I'm a Star Wars gamer. The X-Wing simply wasn't around at this point in history. The prototype and plans were only technically possessed by anyone other than the Rebellion for a brief period of time before the Incom design team defected and took their toy with them. So one, it shouldn't be there, but two, it seems hard for me to buy that they actually screwed up in putting them in.

Listen, it's pretty obvious that this site is about easter eggs and NOT about slip-ups. So go over to slipups.com and share your thoughts with them.

Your egg sucks. You fail to explain where the hell the "alleged" ships are.
