Please excuse my stupidity here.  I understand we're dealing with a different ship based on name, duty, film, etc.  What I'm trying to rationalize is whether it's sufficiently different from the original Lego shuttle for me to buy it.  What I mean is when I've built it and put it next to the original Tydirium, will it look exactly the same? 

Really, I'm not trying to be rude here, but if I can save $50, I will.  If it's different enough then I'll buy it.  Same sort of deal with the Y-wing.  I was going to chase the early release (Y-wing/Tie Fighter) but see no point now that a new Y-wing has been released.

I get what you're saying, and I completely understand. I think basically it just comes down to how bad you want it. If you want the minifigs, the new shuttle comes with 2 Stormtroopers, 2 Sandtroopers, and a TIE Pilot. And from what I've read online, it's bigger than the original. Overall there's probably not much difference other than size and body shape, so like I said earlier, it all comes down to what you want.

I'll pick up the JSF but will pass on the other two.

I'll get all 3. I think it's time I get all my older sets together and dissassemble the ones that have had remakes just to have more room.

Those new sets look awesome.  However, I really wish that Obi-Wan Kenobi's Red Jedi Starfighter had been sold in a seperate package like Anakin's Yellow Jedi Starfighter was.

It looks like LEGO is jumping on the Shadow Stormtrooper bandwagon as well with this set.  Interesting, I guess.

Ohh..That Tie Crawler thing looks pretty cool.  What book/comic/video game is that from?

TIE Crawlers, that design anyway, originally came from West End Games.  It's gotten some mods over the years but overall that's the original design of it.  There's a littler version of it in the Empire At War video game and the two versions are differentiated in the EU.

That's a cool little craft, I'm sort of shocked they delved into the EU like that and made something so accurate looking too.  Love the working tracks and everything.  Shadow Stormtroopers are cool too.

Rebelscum forums are reporting that someone picked the Starfighter with Hyperdrive Ring up in Australia, so hopefully not long now until they hit the states... :)
