The A-Wing is $29.99, I think... saw shelf tags a few days ago at a Walmart and I think that was the price.

Oh no no no....

If anything it simply furthers my title as #KingOfTheDipshits and distances you from ridicule.

Only one YW group made the trench run Steve

Thanks for the correction.  I hope this doesn't result in losing my SW fan license. ;)

My God you heartless bastard, think of the kids!!  :D

Every time a SW fan tries to buy a Rogue One toy early, Babay Jesus cries.  :'(

Seriously though, how much was the A-Wing?

From looking at a scan from the special edition as the Rebel fighters are flying past Yavin, there were at least 8 Y-wings in the strike force.  I like the mention of General Dodonna in the show, and that the fighters that Ezra's unit stole were headed off to Dodonna's cell.  I think that it may have come across as too convenient if Ezra, Sabine and Zeb had been able to make off with a dozen Y-wings.  If anything, Rebel units probably managed to equip themselves in a piece-meal fashion.  Y-wings were a standard part of the Republic military during the Clone Wars, so there are probably plenty more in surplus elsewhere that are ripe for the Rebellion to... acquire.

I liked the episode.  Kanan's quest made it interesting, since he's clearly suffered a tremendous personal setback, but in trying to come to grips with that he explores other facets of The Force with the help of the Bendu. 

Ezra seems like he's headed down a path that's dangerous.  The mind trick on the AT-DP driver was probably one of the darker things we've seen a character do on this show.  But he also seems to have had a moment of clarity as he nearly got killed when he set out to bring that station down.

The Sith holocron seems like it's going to come back at some point, and soon.  Should Kanan have entrusted it to the Bendu?  I'm really curious to see how that works out.

I don't count myself among the biggest Thrawn fans.  But I think that our introduction to the character is being done at a very deliberate pace.

Only one YW group made the trench run Steve, 2 XW groups did tho.  One YW was present with the falcon and presumably Wedge and Luke escaping the blast.

That doesn't mean that's all there were tho, especially if old EU holds up at all. 

Best way to tell how many YWs were in the movie is widescreen SE as the fleet they send is arriving.  Tough to count but it can be done.  I forget how many now tho.

A store near me had the whole assortment of 2-packs out today.  I definitely liked the sets with Pao & the Deathtrooper and the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader with Moroff.  As for the Poe Dameron & FO Snowtrooper Officer?  Man, that likeness on Poe is just bad.

Well, I got the sets with Pao & the Deathtrooper and the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader with Moroff to the registers.  I even tried self-checkout on those plus a 3.75" Black Series Emporer's Royal Guard.  But when I scanned them there was an error message.  And the clerk who helped me took them and said "These have been recalled".

Also erroneously on the pegs?  6" Black Series Jyn Erso, Hera's A-Wing, and whole bunch of R1 Hot Wheels.

So all that trouble for 5 Y-wings? Was that the exact # actually shown in ANH or something?

There were at least 7.  There were two bombing runs on the Death Star comprised of three Y-Wings each (which were destroyed), and there is one Y-Wing (at least) in the scene showing the Rebels getting away from the Death Star as it is blowing up.  So they must find more somewhere since they have them in Jedi, too.
