With the amazing MR replicas of the Snowspeeder, Y-Wing, and Falcon, this awe inspiring rebel starfighter would be a sure fire hit.

Pressing the other button has a digital recording of Yoda saying, "Judge me by my size, do you? And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally, it is." And all this comes packaged with the Frank Oz Signature Edition plaque.
I have the Code 3 X-wing and it does not hold a candle next to my MR Snowspeeder nor AT-AT. MR has already shown they can do so much better. Bring it on!JediDave76 said:i think code 3 did a good job with the x-wing

Any plans for MR to do a version of the X-Wing?
X-wing needs glass windows like the movie prop, and Luke in his orange flight suit. Other-wise the X-wing looks empty.Jay_the_Lesser said:It would be cool if they did an X-Wing ICONS-style.
I would be okay either way with a figure/without. Since there are no figures in either the Snowspeeder or Y-Wing I would lean more toward figureless for consistency. Same thing for the glass in the canopy. Since neither the Snowspeeder, Y-Wing or Falcon has glass in the canopies; neither should the X-Wing for consistency as well.yodaman said:It would be interesting to see a Luke figure in the cockpit, but somehow I don't think MR will take that approach. The Snowspeeder didn't have one, so I would guess the Xwing wouldn't. Either way I'm down for one. Just PLEASE have a display case cover for this model.
Shadow Same thing for the glass in the canopy. Since neither the Snowspeeder said:I thought I read that the X-wing's canopy had been designed to have glass in the windows, and it was taken into account durring the build that a certain design or shape would allow them to use a very thin glass and control reflections for filming.
If MR skips the glass and the figure it will keep the value of the Icon X-wing (with droopy wings and guns) very high...because Icons X-wing will still be the only prop copy of the orginal prop. It will be the top model, still after 11 years, I'll have to go back to shopping for one of those [censored], when I'd much rather have a new MR version.
I've seen a few Icon models showing-up on ebay. Sellers cashing-out while MR's X-wing is still in the rumor stages I guess.
The problem with no glass (and to a lesser extent, no figure) is that the X-wing cockpit is large, on top, and in the center of the model (its what the eye sees 1st) and unlike the snowspeeder or Y-wing (which both have the same shape) the big flat solid roof makes glass in the windows soooo much less important. Same to a smaller extent for the MF in the sense that you can't see straight down from the top into the cockpit. Only the X-wing has the top and sides all in glass.
I hope MR is listening. I don't want to have this conversation after the model is released and MR is trying to figure-out why people think the Icon is better and still #1. Do it right MR !!! Blow away that old Icon X-wing once and for all
P.S. just because it lights-up is not enough
P.S.S. My MR Nautilus has glass in the windows and it looks fantastic... so I know they can do it!
DROOL . . . . what a set-up that would be!Mauricio said:Falcon, X-Wing, Y-Wing... displayed together would look awesome!
A Tie and a Vader's Tie would complete de Battle of Yavin set.
There was a rumbling at the RPF from MR Barry that the X-wing would be cool if it had adjustable wings. Maybe a foreshadowing of what's to come?damon5973 said:how would the wings be? opened or closed? motorized??
