Thanks for the heads up CHEWIE, I'm passing on this one, like I have most of the other repaints and rereleased vehicles.  The pilot sort of intrigues me, but not really :P

I'm on the fence with this one.  I usually like to get all of the OT vehicles, and I don't have a Y-Wing yet (saw the POTF2 one once, looked at it and said "i'll come back later and get it"...and yeah, it was gone), so I have been a little more tempted to get this one.  Still not sure though, we'll see.  Thanks for the link CHEWIE.

Anyone else notice the change in the Pilot?

During Comic-Con (and on all the packaging), it shows the PotJ Luke Hybred Pilot that was used for the Red Leader X-Wing.

NOW, the actual figure that comes with the Y-Wing is the same figure that came with the first Target exclusive PotF2 Y-Wing, with a slight change in the Pilot's helmet deco.

Wonder why they switched back?  Too many people complaining?

Damn!  I finally post some new news here first, and nobody wants the damn thing.

The link is working for me by the way, hopefully now it will for anyone else who may want to order it.

You know, I really don't like what they did with the whole pilot thing on this...

I think they should have used the Dutch Vander body and replaced the head/helmet with all new ones.

The way my TRU gets exclusives, I'm not worried about finding this one. What I have to worry about is finding the regular figures, because the shelves are littered with exclusives.

I'll grab it when I see it. Thanks for the link though, CHEWIE!

Well, I ordered one.  I missed out on the last Y-wing, though I picked one up loose.  I like the OTC packaging, so what the hey, it's not that pricey. 

Picking up the following OTC packaged ships:

Slave I
Y-wing
X-wing/Tie Fighter Costco exclusive

Would like to get the Sam's club Falcon, but no Sam's club here :-\

Waiting on the slug Vader's Tie to at least be marked down a bit.  Would pick up a regular Falcon OTC if it gets marked down as well.

For pete's sake, the free shipping thing is over? Dammit.  >:( Ordered one anyway since my TRU here is lame beyong all belief and may never get them - they're too busy stacking up Endor Ambush sets.

Got my Y-Wing today :)  Overall I am very happy with it.  I really dig the paint deco on this more than the other, even though this was a turn off for most people. The pack in fig is your typical pack in fig.  To bad i'm an opener because the package is sweet.  But like any other Amazon package it is not even close to mint condition.  So if you ordered one to keep boxed, buyer beware.
