Except it's covered in armor and all...  None of the REb Y-Wings are covered in any source material I ever saw.

Agreed, and those pics have convinced me to get another for a Rebel version.  I love the idea of something that's a bit different than what we see in the films... I'm a fan fic kind of collector and like to let my imagination run wild.  That's why this hobby is so enjoyable for me after all these years. 

My only gripe about this vehicle is one of the nose cannons on mine is bent - seems like the same one is bent on the one that glorbes owns as well.  I'm guessing I can fix that though.

At both the local Marshall's and TJ Maxx today, this vehicle showed up for $39.99.  Each store had 2 of them.

Not bad...  Not great, but much more acceptable as far as pricing goes.  I got mine on a hefty clearance at K-Mart.  It's a nice toy for sure.

Never could pull the trigger on getting a second one for some reason.  I actually right now feel like I would pass on another even it it was priced at $20.   :-X

I tried for a second Y-Wing for the longest time at around $30ish, but just couldn't do it - especially after getting gouged for almost full price on my first.  $20?  Hmmmmm....Maybe

The guns on mine are bent too.  When it comes to toys, those chin guns seem to be cursed.  Bent, or too sort, they never seem perfect.

Bought my first one of these today at $34.99

I should use "bought" in quotes, I used some giftcards and didn't actually cost me anything.

Between the clearance and the cards, it was finally time.

P.S. Love the ship!!!  It's huge and a great design!!!

EDIT: TRU by the way, if anyone is interested.

I finally opened up the one I bought, at KMart clearance about three months ago, over the weekend.  I love this sucker.  I too have bent nose guns (or else they were aligned by Lt. A$$h%le....  ;D)

My four year old and I spent the weekend engaging in dogfights between my 3 3/4" CW Y-Wing and his Galactic Heroes CW Y-Wing.  Needless to say he found it much funnier when his ship shot down mine and his seemed oddly impervious to damage (I think he was cheating).

I like the design, especially for the price I got it at.  Maybe I should pick up a second at TJ Maxx clearance and give it a red paint job...  Oh well, wishful thinking.

It's a nice sturdy vehicle, it is.
Think we'll ever get a red repaint?

I doubt it unless they drop the pricepoint.  Heck - I'd wager a repaint would be $75 if they ever got around to it  ::)

Yeah, I think the Shadow ARC-170 proved that repaints at Hasbro's large ship pricepoint of ~$70 won't sell.  (I know, the ARC sold just fine when it was released for ROTS for ~$35, but Hasbro wants to sell these ships for ~$70..).

I know I didn't buy until it was about 30% of that price...
