RED LEADER COMING TO TOY'R Us
« on: October 29, 2003, 08:54 PM »
It is now listed in Toy R Us Computer that they will be getting
a X Wing retailing at $45.00.  The X wing is title  "RED LEADER"
So our wishes for  Graven may happen sooner than what we think!!!!

More Later!!!!!!

I wonder how this X-Wing will be? Just a redeco of the Dagobah X-Wing?
Does not matter to me as long as it has a figure. :)

Interesting news.

I'd buy the figure alone, but I don't think I want another X-Wing... well, maybe... I'll wait to see the pics.

Hmmm, $45 for the Saga X-Wing with a figure?  Eh...  :(  

Not that I'm NOT happy to get a Red Leader figure (If he has a removable helmet), but $45 for another X-Wing is pretty expensive...

Yeah, this is one of those moments as a SW diehard where you go, "Do I really need it?"  I want a Red Leader figure, but if I have to plunk down $45 on a ship I already have for him, then nah.  More power to them, though.

Do we even know for sure it will come with the Red Leader figure?   Haven't we always had cheap rehashes for figures if the vehicle comes with a figure at all?

Well, it would be very easy to put a new head and repaint the helmet on the Gold Leader or Luke Body from POTJ...while a cheap rehash it is a welcome one

I am also hoping that Jimmy's report that an Astromech will be packed in also happens!

This is good news. I love the saga X-Wing.

I only wish we had a new Y-Wing that was to scale to the X-Wing. Especially with the reports of Gold Leader coming out next year. Damn, I'm going to need to have a bigger apartment by the end of next year!  ;D

Wowzer!  $45.  Maybe Hasbro has created a way for it to fly.

Or an accesory that lifts the R2 unit into place in the X-Wing!!

Or maybe they could include the Yavin Accesory Set stuff? All those lil boxes/ladders? I dunno.

It'll probably be a seperate R unit, plus the pilot, and that's it.

I would be happy with the Yavin Accesory set with it.  However, I want several of those, so I guess that's not the answer for me.

Stan, just wondering how certain you are about this.  After all, there is the  game for Nintendo's Game Cube called Rogue Leader.  Just wondering if there might've been a mix-up.  I've been checking on this and my sources haven't delivered yet.

I too wonder what the deal is with this finding in the store's computer...  Should be interesting to see what comes of it.  It seems awfully early for an exclusive like this to be creeping into TRU's system already...  But, sometimes the product makes the system immediately after the details of the exclusive have been finalized and the product is a "go".

I'll be anxious to see exactly what this is that Stan's uncovered though...  Makes for good discussion to say the least. :)
