Details on the trench run are painted on. Id assume this is doing the same thing.Question: are the markings on this one and the Trench Run version decals like the FX version, or painted on? I have the FX and not interested in this unless there's a considerable improvement such as paint instead of decals...
Great question Sharky —I noticed on the Yakface TFF checklist this is being listed as a Fan Channel item. So, the Walmarts and Targets won't be stocking them I presume.
I think there is a shot that Gamestop would mark it down at some point once stock starts to get low and some time has passed.Smart move, making it a fan channel means it probably wont go on deep discount. It also means the secondary market on the trench run x-wing wont be as affected by this release. I've noticed fan channels don't change the price as much as regular retail as somehow people still don't know about fan channel releases in as great of numbers.
Amazon proper hasn't had any of the previous Fan Channel figures (Gam Guard, ROTS Trooper, Skiff Guard 3 pack etc). 3rd party sellers have them up for close to suggested retail though.I think there is a shot that Gamestop would mark it down at some point once stock starts to get low and some time has passed.
Does Fan Channel include Amazon? My gut is telling me no. That is to say I can't recall something Fan Channel showing up on Amazon. Maybe I'm just forgetting. If Amazon has it that's another avenue where one could see a price reduction.
Yes, this version is an upgrade over the Dagobah version. It has the new cockpit with the targeting computer. I really like the Dagobah one, but I want this one as well, then I can display the Dagobah one with the swamp muck on it.This might be the first of the overpriced TVC vehicles I don't wait to buy. Box is beautiful, and the X-wing looks like a great upgrade since the last one I purchased (Dagobah crash-landing version, which I think was an exclusive).

FYI, I grabbed one of these a while back & it does the job.What do you think the chances are that they've fixed the sagging wings for this update?
Sure, why not. After TLJ anything is possible. I can even see them having General Leia riding in R2's exterior jumpseat while sparkly-glowy Luke is piloting.Maybe Luke's X-Wing will make an appearance in TROS...............
The problem is I need THREE of these. Not a cheap fix when you need more than one. I don't have access to a 3D printer, either. Or I'd gladly spend the $10 for the file.FYI, I grabbed one of these a while back & it does the job.
Why Hasbro can’t simply do the same thing is ridiculous, but sometimes after market upgrades are necessary.
