all I'm seeing is red X's

Maybe if I host it...



Thanks Chewie.
I'll get one, mainly because I've never had one not even vintage, but those blasters are getting repainted.

Sal, I didn't like the 181st TIE either... actually, I hate that thing.

But, this looks better to me for whatever reason.

Oh, I agree with you there. I actually like the extra red colors. But strangely while the 181st TIE had that red stripe on it, it wasn't enough to draw me in. I think it just looked to "custom" and not "real" enough for me. Now had this come with Baron Fel instead of a TIE Pilot, I'd have bought it. But Hasbro saved me the cash by putting Fel out in a Comic Pack...even MORE money saved.

That was a bad move by Hasbro, IMO.

I agree with what you said... I hate the red stripe on the TIE... if they did an Interceptor in white paint, then I'd bite... but a red stripe?  Lame-O!

I kinda thought that their Fel figure was a letdown... like a POTF2 buff figure w/ decent articulation...

Yeah, Fell wasn't all that great. Worth half the comic pack price though, IMO.

The Fel figure was definitely a letdown.  But I guess Hasbro had to make compromises in order to get 2 figures out at that comic 2-pack price point.  I think a Fel figure that was part of the Basic Figure line would've been a good deal better than what we got in the 2-pack.

I have no idea who Netrem Pollard is, but I guess he's the guy coming with the Dagger B-Wing...

Looks like he's the leader of Dagger Squadron:

You know it's time to quit when you have to google the figure's name.

True that!

The latest exclusive EU offerings so far are pretty lame. The Royal Guard Ninja pack, Pirate Tie, this B-Wing, I am starting to fear for the EE pack.....

I've been googling names for years. Anything beyond Snaggletooth and Walrusman has been a challenge for me. :P

If anyone wants an extra B-Wing for a decent price, let me know.

I was looking at the SDCC pictures and it looks like we're definitely getting this tonight. They have 7/26 as the release date on the little tag in front of the one at SDCC. They also have a price on it of $29.99.

I could have sworn that the pre-order price back when the item was on TRU.com was $39.99 like the large-wing TIE. I'm more than happy to pay $30 for this vehicle with the new figure. I'll definitely be getting two if that is indeed the price.

If it's higher, I'll grab my one MIB one tonight and then gradually build Dagger squadron over time. At $40 a piece, even I have my limits.
