Well
$5 for the human
$5 for the droid
$35 for the ship

Is that still bad when the ship is $35?  What was the Dagobah X-wing down there?  It was $54 up here.  

Count me in for one, maybe two.  I've got enough Tie Fighters now (hmm, should I get the new one?) that having three-five x-wings could make for an interesting ceiling display :)

If it comes with ladders and crates from the Yavin Hangar I'll probably buy two of the damn things.  I already have 3 of the bigger X-Wings already, what's two more...  ::)

Amazon

Now has Red Leader up for preorder :-*

And here was the mock up that Jeremy posted a few weeks ago



I really hope Red Leaders astromech also comes with him, it is a R5 unit

$30's reasonable enough...  Better than $40 for Luke's which was pretty overpriced I thought.

$30 is much more reasonable for a ship they already have the toolings for.  I just hope the figure isn't a poor quality piece, and they genuinely put some effort into him.  A removable helmet and new headsculpt on a Wedge CS body would suit me fine.

And I agree with Scott in that I'd like to see the R5 unit packed in too.  I'm not expecting it though, but I'd love for it to be there.  His R5 had one of the most unique paint schemes of any astromech in the films I thought.

The possibility exists for a decent Pilot figure.  They have in their factories, the Wedge with Removable helmet and the new Gold Leader.

I am just hoping it is not like the Y-Wing Pilot we got with it.  

I'd take his astromech too.  Very cool possibilities.

But I think somebody else also pondered the idea that it MIGHT be a Rebel Technician...maybe that one from the cancelled sets (like the DS Trooper, Scout Trooper, Hoth Abomination, Battle Droid sets, I can't remember what they were called.)

Here is the question at the price are people going to buy it or are they going to wait for the clearance like in the past?  I am going to snag 2 in the beginning and hopefully have enough $ laying around to buy another at each price drop.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but is it JUST an X-Wing, or does it include a Red Leader figure or R2 unit? Thanks.

We don't know for sure if it will even include a pilot (as most exclusive vehicles have done recently).  I guess it would make sense to do at least that (there is a figure in the mockup picture).  Two pack ins (Garven and R5) might be pushing it...

Two figures would be nice. The TRU Dagobah X-Wing only came with R2. I hope there are two figs in this package. We need to have the correct Astro Unit.
