Like a lot of you, I need to score the pilot, but couldn't care less about the ship.

One more Hasbro hoop to jump through I guess...

I will order from EE but I will wait until there is something else to preorder. I wish they posted this when they posted the mystery pack could have saved on shipping. I hate when they do that.

You might be able to cancel your mystery pack order and put them together. Give 'em a call.

I did think of that but I am hesitant as you lose you order placement space. (I do not want to wait if these packs sell out) I appreciate the suggestion I may just do that since they still have all of the other exclusives still in stock. It also sounds like a lot of people did not order yet.

I didn't order yet and I'm not worried at all about a sell out. I don't think they ever did during pre-sale.

Here's my question about this - why could THIS have been the version that just came out at TRU?!?! Why did we need a Clean White TIE, a Dirty White TIE and now a "Pirated" White TIE. It's getting ridiculous AND expensive.

It's ridiculous for me because of the size. It's a lot of space for an EU anything. I really wouldn't know how or where to display it.

These are pretty funny back to back posts.

 ???  I was referring to Anton posting that the item was ridiculous then the very next post is his shipping notice.   ;)

What can I say? The word "sucker" is stamped on my forehead.  :P

Got it opened it up. I'm sure if I had read the source material that I'd appreciate it more. I had always thought that at the very least, I'd have another TIE pilot, however, I never noticed the lack of imperial markings and the addition of rebel ones. Still, all in all, it's a nice set. Minus the rebels insignia on the wings, it's the best painted TIE thus far.

I must also have "Sucka" stamped on my head too. Mine should be here any day from EE, I'm glad to hear that the paint job is pretty nice. It's a shame they did not put the astomech slot on the back to make this really accurate to the comic.
