Ok folks will do. I'll keep watch of this thread once these start showing up in stores. Then I'll send out trade PMs accordingly. Thanks for the quick response. It helped me make up my mind about getting duplicates.

For me this works out fairly nice. All I need do is airbrush however many extra stripes I want on the wings to make the other designated X-wings.

I figure I might as well get some extra X-wings now because they just aren't going to be cheaper in the future. A little airbrush now will save me a lot later.

After my first set, I'm going to want another Wedge to make a snowspeeder version. If this is a Target exclusive, I won't mind buying a second set just for that - once it hits clearance.

I am also just looking for the figures if anyone wants the ship.

I'm not digging why Hasbro is putting animated clones on OT stuff, but whatever. 

Question - how much are you guys willing to sell your spare X-Wing for anyways?

I'll be willing to sell mine for half if the set is $50 I think.  I just want the figures and the ladders...  My scale obsession wont' let me keep the X-wing despite it looking pretty sharp actually.

It seems like someone can make a killing selling casted ladders from this set. Hmmm. ;)

I was just squinting at the fine print on the back of the box that lists all the features, and am I correct in seeing the words "optional Rogue Squadron markings included" pointing to a bunch of TIE fighter and 2 Death Star kill markings?  That's pretty cool!

That's really cool. Just the Death Star kills may sell it to me now.

Wedge should only need 1 Death Star kill sticker, even a half one at that (unless Wedge destroyed a third DS in EU that I'm unaware of). But, it is cool that they are offering those Rogue Squadron kill marks.

I think Wedge has two, due to surviving the first assault...  which technically counted as an assist since he was in the trench and slowed the assault by the TIE's on Biggs and Luke.

Maybe (hopefully) they are also meaning that it is going to come with the Rogue Squadron crest?  Which is 12 X-Wings and a blue Rebel logo, IIRC.

Yeah, I think being involved and surviving these two "suicide" missions means he deserves two.

The alternate stickers are very cool. It would make picking up a second set less painful.

What is up with that astromech?  That is not the droid Wedge used at Yavin *or* Endor!  How freaking lame is that?  Does Hasbro even bother to watch the movies anymore when designing this stuff?

I did some looking, and found it very difficult to make out Wedge's ANH droid.  The Angelfire site has some pics that seem to show R3-T2's all-red dome.  This is apparently the same droid from Mos Eisley.  Is that right?
