Will definitely like to see the difference in paint apps between this one and the trench run.

Iím kind of torn on this X-Wing...  I didnít get the Trench Run version, but got the TVC Biggs X-Wing that uses the same tooling.  While the new fuselage and detailed cockpit are quite nice, the wings and main landing gear remain basically unchanged from the POTF electronic X-Wing from over 20 years ago and are dated...  If they changed that part of the model, it would be fantastic.  Otherwise, I may just stick with my 1/30 scale Revell X-Wing kit, which is actually bigger than the TVC model!

I dunno. I have all my x-wings huddled together and the Biggs Red 3 and Trench Run Red 5 stand out from the previous mold based on the POTF F/X mold. The latest tooling is so good that, as I mentioned before, I'm very tempted to customize the previously released X-wings using the latest tooling. Yes, $100 is a lot, especially considering that the same tooling was half as much 8 years ago, but it's still high quality.

I will still always love the POTF F/X version though. There's something perfect about the engine lights.

Does anyone know if this is going to be available via Target.com at some point?
