I haven't seen pics yet, but thought I'd start up a thread so we have one when pics surface...

I'm not sure how different the Biggs will be from the one that is in the Black Series line. My guess is that we'll be getting a redeco of the Xwing from that TRU exclusive Trench Run set.

I'm cool with that...  with Porkins being made tiny, it makes me wonder if his ship won't happen at some point.

Biggs being included might have been a misunderstanding by the guys at the show - box says "figure not included".

I didn't think it was included.

Looks good to me! I might actually get two or three, despite the wing markings.

As much as I want the box, for completeness' sake, this is a pass unless clearance or the Biggs is significantly different if he's even included.

Needs spring action exploding feature with electronic scream dialouge.  Also include vader's dialouge for no reason other than Vader is the star of everything. "I have the leader..."

THIS is very cool on Hasbro's part.  Ever since they introduced the larger X-Wing they've been giving us some individual fighters along the way.  First it was Luke, obviously.  Then Red Leader.  And there was Wedge, too.  Add in a couple of more renditions with Luke, of course (Dagobah, Trench Run).  And now Biggs.  I've got to say that I'm pretty happy about this.  And it's actually coordinated with a Biggs basic figure release.

I actually passed on the Trench Run X-Wing.  But I'm hoping that some of the updates that were in that version will carry over to this new Biggs version.

Very cool indeed. Can't get enough of these simple repaint variants.

Classic vehicle, I passed on the Vintage Luke X Wing so I will buy this one.

Pretty nifty, and the vintage box never hurts things either.  I'm not sure if I'll pick it up or not.  I'd like to, but it depends when everything starts hitting and what kind of space I can free up by then.  I've got a couple different Luke X-Wings, and Wedge's as well, but not sure if I have room for the whole squadron.

If the deco pictured on the box actually reflects what the toy looks like, I may end up getting this one. Curious about the price, though, since the last few big X-Wings have been in the 50 buck range and have included figures.

Speaking of the Trench Run X-Wing, what modifications were made to that mold anyway?

It came with the targeting computer, I know that much.

I know there was also a fold out missile launcher added underneath... I'm pretty sure there is one more significant change that I can't remember at the moment.
