If they nixed the crappy kit-bashed pilot, dropped the price slightly (say $20-25), and released a wave of Pilots with astromech pack-ins at the same time, this would be so much more appealling!

That said, I'm still getting at least one of these for Wedge. Anyone have a picture of his astromech?

Wedge's astromech. Actually, is there any place where I could find the astromech's of all the major pilots?

*Porkins
*Biggs

there are several pics and names on the red 6 website. pictures aren't the best, but they are okay... click on the droids (astromech) section.

I don't believe that the majority of the astromech can be seen in the movie...Biggs, Luke, Red 10 (Theron Nett) and Red Leader are the only 4 that are really definitive...


Biggs Darklighter (R2-Q2)



Theron Nett (R2-X2)



Red Leader (Red R5)

Then there are a bunch of unknowns...that were seen at the Battle of Yavin

They're now $20 at Amazon.com. Have been for a few weeks. Just thought I'd share the info.

A couple?  These are stacked about 10 high on the top of the shelves, never mind the six on the display.  Clearance?  What clearance?

I made the mistake of leaving my Red Leader X-Wing on display in an area that receives sunlight in the morning. The left side stickers are all faded. :P
