Finally got around to opening the B-Wing last night, and noticed that the rear section of the cockpit (the one on the other side of the ring that holds the cockpit assembly) seems to be misaligned.  I don't have a camera, but essentially, the blue stripes (that run from the front of the section to the back and *should* be on the top, bottom, and sides) are placed at 10-2-4-8 instead of 12-3-6-9. 

It definitely adds some variety to the decos I already have on the shelves, but the rear section already has a small tapered area (above the screw hole) and having it positioned like this throws it off somewhat.  Again, it's more of an aesthetic thing, but does anyone know a quick/easy way to fix this so it's aligned properly?  And yes, I am completely insane. :)

Hey my fellow comrades,

Found ole B-wing today at k-mart in Penn station. Last one. Box is a 8 out of 10 so they gave me 10% off (original price $43.99). So I ended up paying 43 and change with tax. This info is for those looking in the NYC area. Feeling like the world is right, right now. BTW I heard from a good source that the big kmart in the Bronx (co-op city) bay Plaza area they have quite a few there. For those in NY or those visiting, check it out.

Glad to hear you found one within the city limits.  Collecting in Manhattan is rough.

Make sure you guys are using the New York Finds Thread in our Mission Logs area...  With enough guys posting what they're finding (and looking for), the area could really grow and a lot of you could help each other out a good deal.  We'd even expand it to its own "child board" if the group gets active enough.

To nicklab: you can say that again. I'll be in debtors prison trying to get all the stuff I can't find In the city.

To Jesse: thanks for the info. I will be sure to use that thread the next time

It's ok bellboy, to post in here.  I just hope I can get the NYC crew more involved as a cohesive group.  It's really to your own benefit to do so!  And with NYC being a difficult collecting location, everyone can use all the help they can get.  :)

Thanks Jesse.

And congrats on the find, bellboy. I'm going to try to hit the Union Sq K-Mart tomorrow around lunch time, as I'll be in the neighborhood.

I have the Saga B-wing, but I'd like to pick this one up as well, since it's one of my favorite fighters. Never got enough screen time in my opinion...and I really wish it had been included in the Empire At War video game. I'd love to see a few of those fighters in a surgical strike against an Imperial cruiser...

That's not bad + free store pickup.  I might bite since I need another one of these like a hole in the head, but that box is pimp.  yo 

I think I saw the Y-Wing on sale for $27 at TRU yesterday...

$15!  Wow, that's a killer deal.  I've only ever seen one in a collector's shop for $70.  ::)

I'm stuck at work waiting for a delivery and there's a K-Mart with a few just around the corner. Cursing the driver (incase it's in store as well.)
