Rebel Starfighter Red Five X-Wing #156 arrived at my office this afternoon. My hat is off to Bryan, Amy and the rest of the eFX crew. They all did a superb job with this piece. I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out and I'm proud to have it in my collection.
I just looked over all the different parts and pieces and this one looks to be perfect. My plaque is straight, no smudges and it even has some of Mark's finger prints on it! All the lights work and they all line up pretty good. I was being very gentle with the whole thing, but I wasn't sure if I had the seat and pilot in there right or not. The canopy did have room enough to close, so I'm assuming I did, but it was kind of loose. Perhaps that's just the way it was designed to be, but I wasn't going to mess around with it.
I have to be honest, I just had a look around the room to see if there was any possible way to display it and there's not. I literally don't have anywhere to safely put it. I also don't want to display it without a case anyway, so that's okay. Just knowing that I have one will have to be enough for now.
For anyone in the Port Saint Lucie, FL area that's interested: I will have this on display at the next SWGFA event on May 17th.
