I'm down for one or two but ONLY if it folds correctly.

I'm certain it does. When you look at the wing angles, it would imply it can.

Seems the answer to the tri-wing-fold design is that it does...  :)  Good to have that cleared up finally, but the answer Yakface got on the deco will bug some for sure...  Personally, I don't mind, but I know not everyone wants to weather a ship themselves, so I can at least feel your pain.

I'm glad we're getting it, so I'm happy...  A scale Torrent was a big wish for me.

I guess it will look pretty damn cool when in fighter mode if hanging from a ceiling...  I'm kind of on the fence on this one though.  Yeah, it looks very nice, but I'm so low on space these days.  Maybe I'll see if I can get 1-2 and have them landed or something for a diorama.  Not sure yet.   :-\

In case you missed it, here's a new pic with wing folded down.

Definitely worth $20 to me.  :)

Worth $80 for 4 of them to me. ;)

Well...  $70 after coupons, hopefully.   :-X

Coolness. I would have found it hard to believe if the middle wing didn't fold down.

This ship is totally worth the $20 price tag.

I'm sure we're going to get re-painted to death with it, but I am extremely happy that we're finally getting this ship.

Hope I'm not stealing anyone's thunder by transposing this...

I got real lucky on the Dagger Squad find. Also, on that page for the B-Wing instructions are the instructions for the CW V-Wing:

You know, if you remove the wings from this thing there's a lot of potential for different looking custom ships.

Possibly that Airspeeder Anakin took to the Jedi Temple (just before he defended Palpatine from Mace killing him).

With how well this turned out, it's going to be interesting to see if I can resist picking this up. It really doesn't fit into my collection, but it's cool none-the-less.

No a bad idea... I was thinking more along the lines of a personal starfighter for Yoda.   :)
