I remember seeing this on the main page recently. It said it was a re-release of the Dagobah X Wing. Does anyone have any info on the original release of this? I don't have any version of the X WIng and I've been waiting for this.

Re: TRU Exclusive X WIng

If i remember correctly,the original dagobah x-wing was also a TRU exclusive and was in the Saga box that had the gold edging.It was like '03 or '04.

The electroncs and attached figures may again be removed

If this is a "Dagobah" X-wing I'd like to see it come with swamp debris all over it like when Yoda pulled it from the swamp. I'd buy it if it came with the swamp monster that tried to snack on R2!

Thanks for the link. Am I correct in that this version has no electronics? Kind of a steep price if that is so. I'll still be getting it, though.

The one that is linked is a few years old,i don't think we've had a comfirmation as to what it is yet! I think Mr.Curto was just showing that what someone requested was already available.

If its a repack i'll pass. A good figure and a new paint job, then I might think twice

Re: TRU Exclusive X WIng

I know that this is wishful thinking, but it would be awesome if TRU labeled the X-wing wrong and it was for a Biggs’s X-wing to go with Battle of the Death Star figure wave and came with a really cool Biggs figure and the X-wing had an awesome paint job???

Now I would buy that!!!!!!

I suspect this as well. The green Target A-wing and red TRU Y-wing are practically identical to their Action Fleet counterparts released years back. It's possible this one will mirror the Action Fleet Dagobah X-wing released exclusively through Toyfare a while back. Notice a pattern.

Re: TRU Exclusive X WIng

The downside of the FX X-Wing mold is the wings are too heavy and start to sag. I've pretty much store mine on its engines pointing straight up to avoid it.

I don't have link with a pic, but I know one source is "The Wildlife Of Star Wars" book which has the artist rendition of the creature, which is quite sizeable actually.

You'd probably add another $15-20 to that set.

it comes with the bigger sized x-wing fighter, removable swamp muck, r2-d2, kit bashed luke dagobah with hands sculpted so he can levitate, lightsaber, and the swamp creature that ate R2 who looks really cool.

Re: TRU Exclusive X WIng

Yeah,

The TRU Y-wing was easier to find then the Target Y-wing.I went to TRU in 2004 when they had it they had like 12 of them at one time.Target (which was 80 miles away from where I live in 2000)basiclly shot themselves in the foot by not getting enough of them.Target wondered why there was such a high demand for they vehicle that they raise the price of the b-wing to 30 bucks.I have never forgiven Target for what they did with the y-wing.

Re: TRU Exclusive X WIng

i'm not joking or lying. it's all truth! everyone will love this exclusive. the pictures are in the new LEE's that came out this week in comic stores. i looked for pics but couldn't find any and i can't scan pages.

like i said in more detail, the set includes

1- the larger Luke's X-wing mold. it's not not cast in grey plastic like the old dagobah x-wing. it's whiter and more detailed even though it's the same sculpt.
2- Dagobah swamp muck pieces. These are plastic pieces of swamp that can be put on or removed from the X-wing to re-play the scenes from dagobah or just use the x-wing natually.

3- R2-d2. in the pictures, it was just a generic R2-d2 (like saga HOF)with no muddy paint apps. i don't know if the released version will have mud.

4- Luke dagobah- a re-used sculpt from OTC luke dagobah. He face looks a little different, his outfit is a lighter color, he has sweat marks on his tank top, and his arms look the same as handstand arms, but he has normal hands (right hand outstretched) which looks like they are pegged. he comes with a lightsaber.

5- dagobah creature. the one that ate r2d2. same color as in the movie. you can't tell how big it is b/c the picture isn't scaled next to anything. has movable arms and maybe a bendy tail. has a small head so he can't eat anything


there are no other accessories included like rocks or cargo crates.

They should save on the figure. VTSC Luke is all you'll ever need.

Since I have fallen for the VTSC line, this might be one of the few OT ships I get! From here on, only newly sculpted ships for me!!

Did noone else think this was rather strange?
"Same color as in the movie"?????
"Moveable arms and a bendy tail"???????

Is my TESB DVD missing something that everyone else's has? I do not ever recall seeing a Dagobah creature, save for a quick shot of it skimming the surface of the swamp. Certainly not long enough of a scene to declare it any specific color.

Well, I can see a bendy tail (see pictures above of model) but arms?? I don't know...we never got to see anything but it's back so maybe this creature does have arms? I posted above that if it came with that creature I'd be buying it so if this report is true, it will be mine!

I concur. If this is fact, I'm definately picking this up. But I'd like to see pics before I get all hot and bothered about it.

To the guy who said this was in Lee's: Why don't you take it to like Kinkos or something and see if they can scan it?
