Its sad, but $30 really does feel like a steal at TRU these days.

I'm only interested in Lepira... Got a vintage Y-wing already.

I never did get a Y-Wing so now that it includes Lepira and that great astro droid I will be getting this.  8)

I never got the last version either, passing it up the one time I saw it at retail.  I'm really happy that we're getting another chance at it - and like everyone has said, with the pilot and astro droid, it seems like a good deal (especially for TRU).

I was just checking the listing at TRU.com for this ship, and it looks like their "expected arrival date" is now 8/21/2007.  Moved back a little bit from the previous date (June 15 or so, wasn't it?).

Now it's out to 9/6/2007.

Just pre-ordered that and the Tie today. I like the wing although I would have preferred a removable astro its cool the include a standard on so I am happy and look forward to this repaint. The tie however is kind of lame but I buy every vehicle so its something i have to get. Yes, I have to get it.

I really think this is sad, with being released for the 3rd time and they have not brought this ship to true scale as the X-wing and TIE Fighter. I think this is a well enough wanted ship to justify true scale, is it not? I had the other Y-wings, but traded them off as the scale got to me with the X-wing and TIE dwarfing them.

I don't really want this one, other than the Pilot and R5. So this ship will be up for trade once I pick one up.

If anyone doesn't want the astromech let me know.

I'm getting the ship and pilot on a deal from a friend.

The r5 could also pretty much double for the one aboard Padme's ship in EP1.  I looked through Wookpedia and it doesn't have any info/number on it.

Crap.  Another thing where I just want the pack-ins.  Oh well maybe someday in a Saga Legends type of thing.

Presumably this is because your friend only wanted the Astromech.

So it must have been a hell of a deal for you to get involved and basically take over being the one who needs to find just the astromech... 

Otherwise, you might as well have just bought one.

I love the R5, and given the rocking designs R5's have I have to say I'm looking forward to more R5 repainting.  Red Leaders immediately needs done, but there's a whole bunch with intricate paintjobs I can't wait for.

Hate the "Dutch" Vander body at this point, it's just too damn tall and that's annoying to me...  Still as a pack-in I like that they're doing removable helmets at least, and the astromech is just great.  Thank god I've got someone (thanks Paul) helping me with both since I really didn't want to buy the Y-Wing.

I'm right there with everyone on the Pilot, but the Droid pack-in sure is a nice bonus. I'm really looking forward to the set now.
