Personally I hope that Hasbro decides to make the V-Wing with a pilot. But I doubt that will happen.
I'm hoping for this as well. They need a vehicle like the V-Wing to refresh the Assault (Mid-size) vehicle assortment - the Plo Koon old-school Jedi Starfighter just doesn't cut it in my book.
I wouldn't mind if they put out a wave that was Obi-Wan's Blue Jedi Starfighter (the one he takes to Utapau) and the V-Wing - one new vehicle, one re-painted vehicle.
I would also prefer that (based on past pack-in figures) that they NOT pack a V-Wing pilot in with the fighter and release him as a SA individually carded figure.
