They did do a really good job with the helmet. They could have really botched that one up.

I mainly just want the figure.  I will give my son the A-Wing.

The helmet really does look nice. It would have been nice to see that in with the Tycho figure as well.  I was hoping to see this this week with the rest of the 7/26 goodies but my wallet can certainly wait it ou until November. This may be the first ship that I'll pick up multiples. I'll probably have to grab at least two of them. I may even grab four so I have a nice little flight of them.

Wow - so this is going to be a November item. Cool! Now I can comfortably SKIP WalMart on Saturday morning since I'm almost done already with everything.

That's what we had heard, but I thought in the pics from SDCC it looked like its nametag had a 7/26 release date.  Personally, I sort of hope its November.  I'd be ok with a little less to buy/hunt for this weekend, and I sort of want one of these A-Wings/pilot.

Does anyone know a site where there's a good picture of the sign?

Thanks, so I guess it is supposed to be in the stores this weekend. Damn it!

Yeah I'll be hurtin' especially if the B-wing comes out too. I'm hoping those are Type-os.

I think they might be typos on the little signs - the SDCC presentation which is just a PPT file and can easily be changed, has the B-Wing on shelf 10/1 and the A-Wing on shelf 11/1.

So which is it? I guess tonight we'll find out for sure. If the B-Wing is there then we know the PPT is wrong and the little signs are right, if not, then I guess the PPT is.

I'd bet even money that the A-Wing and B-Wing come out later this year and not tonight.  They don't really fit with the overall theme of Clone Wars or the Legacy offerings.  Plus we probably would've seen them leak out by now if they were due out tonight.

Yeah, I doubt they'll be out tonight. Nicklab's post pretty much said it all.
