Exclusive TLJ 3.75" Resistance A-Wing (Red)
« on: May 29, 2018, 10:33 AM »
Yakface has an update to an earlier report - UPDATE: “NEW” WALMART A-WING DETAILS

I am utterly amazed they took the time to change the color and the pilot.  I was expecting the bare minimum effort they gave to the TRU TIE exclusives ("now with dirty paint ops!").  Really surprised to see some actual effort in this repaint.

I can't remember... were there actually red ones in the movie?

Yes, you can see it in the hangar bay right before Kylo exploded it (video snippit from TLJ behind the scenes story at io9).

Ah, so you can... I was just thinking of the ships that were out in the battle.

You could see these very clearly when they let some press onto the set of TLJ the day that some of the British royals visited:

Thanks Jeff!

I just canceled my Rey preorder and re-ordered it with this too.  If Jesse hadn't mentioned it in the other thread, I probably would have forgotten all about it.

I only wish the pilot were unique.  Otherwise I liked the new AWing so this is awesome to me.

Why are all a-wing pilots women?

I couldn't distinguish that much detail from the image to say if the pilot was male or female.

It’s the same fig as the other one had, and they’re all female because Hasbro didn’t want to sculpt a new pilot...  at least that’s what I’m assuming since all protos showed the same pilot figures...  that one looks a tad different tho.  A diff color jumpsuit (and hey, change the race of the pilot too?) would’ve been cool but either way I’m glad to get the variant ship which is at Black Spire too. 🤷‍♂️
