TRU Exclusive Dagobah X-Wing

Star Wars Classic Dagobah Vehicle with Figure

So what do you suppose this is?  It's listed at Amazon for release in September, but no pic of course...

It's probably the X wing with R2D2 from a few years back although that price seems a bit steep.

That would be about the only vehicle seen on Dagobah, isn't it?  Seems like all the prices are going up in direct contradiction to Hasbro's target market.

I would tend to agree.
It may come with Vinatge style X-Wing Luke and R2. The first go round was $29.99 with R2 and Dagobah gear. I would hope they are not pulling another Gunship price on us. The first Saga Xwing was a sweet deal. For those of you who missed it take advantage this go around.

Sratch the R2, TRU will gauge our wallets.....they want a better margins on the ship.

There were only 2 vehicles making contact with Planet Dagobah: An X-Wing, and Yoda's Kashyyyk escape pod.  That means this is almost definititely the X-Wing at Amazon.

Thank goodness, I was worried I might have to buy this one.

Is this the kick ass X-Wing with sounds and lights?

You know, the one with the non-removable Luke?

I'd safly assume it's the x-wing due to the price point. I just wonder what they can do differently to it to make people want to buy it, asside from a new box.

I kind of figured it was the X-Wing as well, although the price does seem a bit steep.  I wasn't able to pick up the last Dagobah X-Wing, and I was wondering if I should/want to get this version or not.  At that price, I don't know, but the only X-Wing I have is the POTF2 FX version (with Luke stuck in the cockpit).  I kind of like it though, but I was wondering if this Dagobah one might be better or not.

I don't think the price is that surprising, I guess. 

When the Dagobah X-Wing with Dagobah R2-D2 was released back in 2002(?), it was about $40.  I guess I can see them adding $5 now that it's 4 years later.

After all, that Falcon keeps getting re-released and it seems to go up about $5 each time (until the inevitable clearance sale  :P).

Unless the pack-in figure is brand new, I'll just go ahead and pass on this one - I've already been suckered into buying the FX X-Wing three times and that's enough for me.   ::)

Unless it's super cool looking, I'm passing. I picked up the Red Leader X-Wing for $20 back in 2004, and there's no way you can beat that price on a properly scaled X-Wing.

I have several of the fx electronic with the stick in Luke. I passed on the Dagaboh one last time,  but will probably get it this time. Sigh. I keep saying I am done with this hobby  . . . . . . ::)

I passed on the Dagobah X-Wing. I have the Red Leader X-Wing (2004). I have to see this first.

Um....Amazon has the box weighing in at a whopping 1 pound.  I'm not about to pull my saga X-Wing down from the ceiling but I'm pretty sure it weighs more than a pound.  Though the box dimensions look about right for the vehicle - 21.00 x 10.25 x 8.00"

I really much rather this was another Rebel ship than Luke's Dagobah X-Wing again.  I really liked the distinctive sticker and paint patterns on Red Leader's fighter, and wish they would make another one like Red 3 or whatever.
