The Y-Wing and B-Wing are my two biggest wants for an upgrade, now that I finally have Slave-1. I'm generally okay with the larger sized X-Wings we have, as they are still way ahead of the POTF2 version.

I'd love to see them tool up a Z-95 Headhunter though. Hell, I wish they had used them in the prequels.

I too would love a Z-95 Headhunter. The Lego set was awesome.

I saw the new X-Wing for the first time today at TRU. Big box.

They also had the 31" Vader for $10 more than Walmart, pass.

My problem with the xwings are how they compare to things like speeders or whatnot.  Just too small and a figure standing outside one makes it more noticeable...  Ywing is my big ship upgrade but the xwing is immediately 2nd since its a more important ship...  Bwing is third for me.  Eu I just have no hope for now.

Yeah I think the X-Wing needs to be widened, if anything. I only own the Red Leader X-Wing from almost 10 years ago, which I believe is the same sculpt as these newer ones, and I've always had trouble getting the newer, SA pilots to fit. Doesn't need to be TOO much bigger, but enough to fit the modern, post POTJ pilots.

Anyone have a current length on the new sculpt?  I'm thinking its like 80% scale or close to that.

I put gray, square lego blocks under the landing gear feet to give my X-wings some hight. It's amazing the difference it makes.

I finally saw the Biggs X-Wing in a store this morning.  The box looks really sharp.  But the $59.99 price tag?  Maybe it's a psychological barrier, but the box seemed a little small for that price.

Was holding out for the BOGO 50% sale, but I scored the Xwing today with this week's 25% off coupon.

My TRU has 30 of these in stock!  I think they'll be around for a long time at $74.99 (Canadian price).

But my wife bought me one for our anniversary, so I don't have to think about that price.  :D

Picked one up today on sale.  $35 wasn't a bad price to pay for this new X-Wing.

I would've picked up the TVC Republic Gunship, too.  But I couldn't find any around yesterday.  And now the sale is over, so no $30 off.  :(
