    Agreed. 2007's yellow and red R5 with Lepira's ship was a pleasant surprise. I hope we get something unique like that again this time - not a wasted opportunity like Wedge's droid is this year (a droid that is so similar to other releases).

    I hope so too. My astromech collection desperately needs more R5 units. I also hope they fix the landing gear. I hate how weak it is on the current models.

    With todays standards its as likely to be even more weak than it is to be better but we'll see. Looks like I'm getting another Y-wing, bringing my number to 4.

    Hmmmm. This actually could be pretty decent IF Hasbro does some good retooling - but that is a BIG IF and I don't hold much faith in Hasbro to do great things ---- BUT:

    1. I think the cockpit COULD be re-done to hold 2 figures. It would be tight, but I would take that more movie acurate version over the single pilot. They could go cheap and just make the second pilot a 'head' in the back, which I would take.

    2. They could do two things to the main body to give the ship a larger appearance. First, give it taller landing gear, even if it's removeable. I don't really need it to fold in and out. It's going to be sitting on a shelf 100% of the time anyway. Also, the rear vents could be made longer BUT ABSOLUTELY need to be sturdy.

    3. They need to cut out that droid compartment so we can put whichever droid we want in there.

    4. A ladder would be nice.

    I really like this ship, maybe even more than the X-Wing. I would buy 2 of them if they did these mods.

    I would definately pick a retooled Y-Wing up.

    I too would go for taller removeable landing gear. At least to bring it to the height of the X-wing.

    I honestly don't see how they could have improved on the TAC Y-Wing, besides making a slot big enough to fit an Astromech.

    Why not update the tooling on the CW Y-Wing? Could that be what he was implying by "the existing tool"?

    Now you've opened up the floodgates for the comedians on this board to make jokes about all of the colors this could possibly be.

    That ship's not even out yet... what could they update on it? OT Y-wing has much more that could be updated.

    How is the 2-seater Y-wing more movie accurate? They weren't 2-seaters in the films. Snowspeeders had gunners in the back, not the Y-wings we saw.
