Toys R Us "Death Star Trench Run" UBP
« on: July 20, 2011, 05:25 PM »
Scroll down here for more  TRENCH RUN set pictures http://www.lichtgeschwindigkeit.de/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=7678

X-Wing has been altered a bit. Vader's TIE seems to have not been (no removable cockpit seat), and that sure looks like a Saga 2006 Vader included in the set.  ::) I suppose no one is buying it for the figure.

I recently got a Vader TIE at a yard sale for $2. It was missing its missiles...maybe I should get this set for the missiles.  :P

Does R2 (in the Trench Run set) look like the battle damaged one from the first Droidfactory 2 packs to anyone else???

Sure looks like it from the new .de pics ( linked above). 

Definitely some tweaks to the X-Wing too, I think that "hidden torpedo launcher" deal is new.

Front gear also has a "hatch" for it now.

Seriously though, nice updates but without making the ship bigger it's just disappointing to me.   :-\  Of course if the price is right though, the boxed set may be a nice deal overall.

The included Vader is wrong (no tabards over the armor). #fail  :P

Nothing says "hey we know sometimes we screw things up" better than having to put on your packaging: "Vader fits in vehicle!"  :P

Folks at the 'Scum are saying that new X-Wing looks smaller/shorter than the previous mold.

I'm not sure.

Since I have everything in this pack already, it's an easy pass.

Not a bad set though.

The fuselage is a new tooling.

I'd say more when it hits stores. They've got ARP $29.99 on the TRU Y-Wing  :-\

Eeesh That's quite a lot of dough for one $20 ship that is 15 years old, a $50 ship and three repacks. This is a very easy pass for me.

After reading Yakface's commentary I am 100% in on this set. My old Darth Vader Tie wings are really loose and there is enough newness on that X-wing that I can justify getting the set. I wish they updated the Luke too but that will have to be a future release. I am surprised they did not update that figure. Also they really should have included the TAC #16 Vader.

Nice set overall and it's been awhile since Lukes X-Wing was on shelf, I can see this set doing well since it's so iconic. For those that are complaining on this set at least the X-Wing is not a straight repack, they seem to put a lot of new details in. If these mega sets do well who know what could come of them.

(BTW - I really would have bought several of these sets had a DS Turret been included)

They're getting close (especially with this set)  Isn't there are CW type cannon dealy coming out?
