Oh that's what makes me the sick person  you see today Rob...  I'll want a couple of each paint variant too...   :-[

Actually though, this is the paintjob I'll get 3 or 4 of and call it a day.  Depending what other paintjobs they do (Imperial grey?), I probably won't go overboard with EU designs on this ship.  It's neat but only OT EU gets my attention.  If they did a complement of this ship to the ARC-170 w/shark mouth, I'd nab probably only one of it.

In the time between my last post and now I opened my first V-Wing.  While one will be enough for me, I'm just going to add to the consensus that this is a pretty well-done ship.  I wish Hasbro could get vehicles with this level of quality out more often.  It's really something.

It figures, I actually saw one of these at Wal-Mart this weekend - but after spending $70 on VTSC figures I had to pass on it.  The mere suggestion of it to the wife got a bit of a look, which I understood.  Hopefully I'll be able to see it later on again, and pick one up.

Resurrecting an old thread here, but I was fiddling with my V-Wing last night (that I just got around to opening) and discovered that you can in fact display the wings properly for landing, without damage or altering it in any way. It is a little daunting at first but it's just a matter of gently rotating both wings on one side simultaneously.

Have a look see...




It looks much better than the scissor way Hasbro handled it.
