If it does not include the misile, target comp and all gadgets of Trench run X wing, speculators would rise the price of the latter.

$60 doesn't really sound THAT bad to me... haven't most X-Wings cost around $50 since they debuted the bigger sculpt? Granted we used to get more than just the ship though.

Is the "new" ship just a retool?  I thought they'd made an all new X-Wing and it was a little smaller than before?  I could be wrong...  $40 seems more in line, but that's me.

Saga 2002 Luke's X-Wing: $40, included R2-D2 and survival gear

Saga  2006 Luke Skywalker's Dagobah X-Wing Fighter: $45, included Luke, Dragonsnake and swamp moss

Legacy Collection 2009 Wedge Antilles' X-Wing Starfighter: $50, included Wedge Antilles, astromech droid and 2 ladders

Battle over the Death Star Trench was like $100, 3 figures ($30 more or less), Darth's TIE ($20 more or less) and the X-Wing ($50 more or less).

Is the "new" ship just a retool?  I thought they'd made an all new X-Wing and it was a little smaller than before?  I could be wrong... 

I think the general consensus was the Trench Run X-Wing had the old (floppy) wings with a newly tooled fuselage that included - fold out torpedo launcher, front hatch for landing gear, storage compartment, slightly shorter length, new cockpit panel, and the targeting computer.  Lots of tweaks and slightly smaller.  Here's a good overview at JTA.

I always kinda regretted not getting the Trench Run set to get that Red 5 X-Wing but $100+ was just too much since I only wanted the Xwing.  I'll probably pick this one up now that I know it's the trench run x-wing, but I'll probably wait until TRU has a BOGO sale going on in order to save some cash off that $60 price.  Agree with everyone one else that if it came with Biggs/Astromech $60 would be a lot easier to take.

Well, it is TRU. I always expect expensive. Maybe I'll just get one in stead of two now.

I think this will sit around like previous exclusives.  Hope to get it on a TRU sale or lower future price.

Might have to wait for a BOGO50% off sale for this and split a set with an MN member.

My plan is to not "hunt" this but if I see it I can almost guarantee it's going home with me even at $60
I'm daring to do the impossible: Not hating Hasbro for everything they do.
