If the $43.99 price holds true then I'm absolutely getting one.

I don't know if this is old news or not, but I actually saw two of these on the shelf at our local TRU yesterday.  I have to admit, I was mighty tempted to grab one - and still tempted to go back and check if they still have one - but I passed for now.  I only have one of the previous Y-Wings, and the landing gear always fall down (plus no removable astro droid), so I wouldn't mind upgrading, although like JJ, I wish it was an all-new one.  The vintage box almost made it an impulse buy itself.  Oh, and it was priced at $39.99 at our store.

I was at a local TRU at opening this morning, I was seriously hoping to find this in stock - but unfortunately it wasn't there.

Good to know it's at least in the US now, hopefully it will hit the east coast soon...

Not at either of the Memphis TN TRU's today, just the same 4-Lom's and Dengars as always.

I just don't like the color scheme or paintjob of this one at all.  I really regret missing the last version, with the great weathering paint apps.  In fact, I was going to buy JJ's minus the pilot, but was too late getting to it  :'(

Sorry man.  I'm often pretty happy to help people out with that if they don't want the pilot...  I've run into that situation, a LOT.

Even after seeing the new pics, I still can't decide if I want this.   :-\

I want the box more than the toy.  I think the ship sucks, to be blunt, but that's just me.  Till that thing's about the size of the CW ship, which is about true-scale according to references, i'm just not buying another YW.

I'm looking forward to it just so I can put Gray Three and his R5 unit into it.

I guess I'm a sucker for stuff like that...

It's cool Pete, nothing wrong with that.

Mine will find a bench to chill on in a briefing scene is all.

That's kinda why I was hoping for a generic Vintage X-Wing and (perhaps Blue deco) Vintage A-Wing - I would love to have been able to buy Rebel Alliance fighters for each of the Rebel Pilots from the Battle Over Endor sets.
