Seeing reports on RS that the X-Wing is showing up at TRU's in the US. Keep your eyes peeled!  ;)

It showed up here in IA today.  The cardboard inserts are crazy.  I might break down eventually and buy one for Wedge, but I have a sneaking suspicion will get one from Hasbro anyway.

I'm merging our two separate TRU Red Leader X-Wing threads together...  Sounds like this puppy's out in the U.S. now, so start your hunting!   8)

Now the wait for the Astromech droid.

Saw 2 of these at TRU this weekend (in Sioux City, IA), but passed as well.  I just don't have the room for it, and I guess the FX X-Wing is good enough for my collection right now.

I do like the fact that they have a place for a droid, but I would have rather had a droid in the package and another pilot carded

FYI,

The Red Leader X-Wing now lists as "In-Stock" - ships in 24hrs at TRU/Amazon.com website.

I know this because I also got my notification that my X-Wing is shipping today from Amazon.com, should be her early next week.

So, if you pre-ordered this one, be in the watch for your ship notification e-mail!

Hmmm, POTJ Luke with a new head. No droid, and thirty bucks. Have to say Pass on this one.

I couldn't have said it any better myself.  Red Leader's head is just plain laughable.  If they would have made him along the lines of "Gold Leader" Dutch Vander and include or release a Red Leader specific droid than here's my thirty bucks! :)  I'll guess I will just wait until the OTC X-Wing.
