K-Mart Vintage Collection B-Wing
« on: May 10, 2011, 01:12 PM »
Kmart B-Wing ?  I'm perfectly fine with the 4-5 POTJ versions I have, but I do dig that box (if this is true)  Odd how K-Mart continues to get non sucky exclusives...

Very weird, and very uninteresting if it's just the old mold in the old box...  That last B-WIng release did so dismally, I am surprised they'd go another round on those.  Nostalgia can only go so far I think.  :-\

Id be down for one of these if it weren't a K-Mart exclusive. We haven't had one of those in Canada for a while now. I wonder if there'll be anything new besides fancy packaging to entice other buyers. They could probably score an extra couple of sales by including pilots with these exclusive ships.

K-Mart is definitely an odd choice for a vehicle exclusive.  They've done some figures and battle packs, but I can't ever recall them getting a vehicle.  The packaging will be a selling point for some. 

Will it do better than the Dagger Squadron B-Wing?  It's possible.  I don't know that the collecting community as a whole was prepared to embrace an EU based fighter like that.  A film based B-Wing might do better.

YAY, K-Mart, and not TRU or Target!

I miss out on so many of their exclusives.

I hope to God it's a straight repack.

Nice surprise, though I'm happy with the 4 I have from previous releases.

Doesn't look like it's any different from the POTJ/Vintage release...so an easy pass.

Great for anyone who hasn't been able to get it though.

And here I was on the verge of trying to sell off a couple of my POTJ B-Wings.  I think I have at least 4 of those.  Drat!

Perhaps is the b-wing from dark horse comics, repainted and with the last update of the cockpit (buttons and panels on sculpt)

I tore apart my Dagger squadron version to swap the cockpits on the POTJ one. At least this will make it official. I kind of regret it now but I am happy to get this updated! go K-mart! Their exclusives have no been too shabby lately.

As nice as pack-in figures are, I hope this release doesn't include a pilot. I have too many B-Wing pilots that don't have a ride... hopefully this release will allow me to fix that for one of them.

Terrific. I suppose people that don't have a B-Wing pilot will have another shot with the single carded "Revenge of the Jedi" release in the fall.

IIRC, Hasbro stated that they would be releasing Keyan Farlander on the B-Wing Pilot vintage card in the fall.
