I'm hoping that this will be the Titanium repaint version.  I could care less about the pilot...

Really?  Any interest in splitting cost to get just the vehicle loose?  I'm only interested in the figure... ;)

I bought the first modern version, so will likely skip buying a second one despite any possible paint variation.  I'm hoping the pilot will be kitbashed from a Tycho or something, so I don't feel tempted to get it just for him!

As long as the pilot's good, I'm down with that.

Just like the Y-Wing this last year I'm in. I wasn't really collecting too much when this ship first came out, so I never picked one up. I'm in for one with an updated paint job regardless of the pack-in.

Gawd, I hope it's NOT the repainted B-wing. While a neat design, I want MOVIE renditions only for this ship. I already have it, but would gladly purchase another, especially if it has a human pilot.

Don't get me wrong, I do too. I'd love to see more of an updated weathered look, while still being movie accurate, like the Y-Wing and the 2002 SAGA A-Wing. Hasbro has gotten a lot better at painting vehicles recently and I think it'd be a shame to have a straight re-pack. Give it the move accurate deco with some new weathering and I'm a happy camper.

I only want the pilot so if anyone wants to split it up let me know.

Possibly. If anything it would be cheaper for me to buy it and ship you the figure than the other way around. Keep me in mind when this starts to roll around and we can discuss it then.

There are reports of shelf stickers for this thing showing up at TRU. Thoughts?

I hope it's true and that shelf stickers will be seen everywhere (including Canuckia, ahem).  :)  The TRU-exclusive Y-Wing is still showing up here, so I'm optimistic and look forward to adding it to my collection.
