I always like to see pics of the things we've been discussing.  The paintjob looks interesting.  Certainly a bit better than the Titanium B-Wing that's recently been in stores.  And a human B-Wing pilot is a welcome addition.  Obviously this image only shows us a little, but it looks encouraging.

I like it! Wish the picture as a bit clearer. I also wish we had a good shot of the bottom of the box - a lot of times that gives more information than just looking at the item through the window in the front.

I thought we were supposed to get the red suit human b-wing pilot with the set?  ???

Unbelievable. I sure it's probably related to the series, but after having yet to see a red suit human B-Wing pilot, it's quite maddening.

Interesting paint scheme though.

I am in, although I would have preferred another regular color B-Wing. This dagger Squadron team is not that big/known in fan circles so I find this an interesting EU choice given that there are so many other more recognizable choices before them.

A red suited pilot would have looked great with this. I would like to see the customizable parts/labels applied to this to see the combinations of looks.

Not too sure about the red blasters, but I do like how this looks overall.  Which is kinda surprising... if it's not X-Wing or Y-Wing, I usually don't care for rebel fighters.

I think they just said *a* human pilot and didn't get too specific.  Perhaps they want to save Red for the Vintage line or basic carded figures?

Looks neat.  Not that I'm itching to buy more giant ships this year, but yeah, I'll get one.

Just a reminder that the red jump-suit Human B-Wing pilot is scheduled for the 2nd Rebel Pilots Legacy Evolutions pack... Hasbro confirmed it in the Q&A a few times now.  ;)

3. Do you have any pics of the second version of the Rebel Pilot Legacy set yet (the one with the Red B-Wing Pilot)? We’re all interested to see how the Red B-Wing pilot and the rest of the set turned out!

** We do not have pics of this set yet, because our original paint masters aren't a match for what we are actually doing for the final deco. Originally the B-Wing outfit of Keyan Farlander was more maroon when compared to the original Kenner red B-Wing Pilot; since then we have brought ours closer to the vintage color.

Meh, this nay be an eventual purchase. I'm just not into the colors. I passed on the 181st TIE and don't feel bad about it. If this were a Target exclusive, I'd be a tinge more ready to buy as I know it would clearance a month or so after being put out. TRU isn't known for that, so these will sit on shelves. So gain, an "eventual" purchase.
