Based on its appearance in Ahsoka, the E-Wing features a retractable landing gear, as well as a sliding canopy cockpit and a removable panel store cargo within. Included in the box is a cheeky Vintage Collection debut in the form of KE4-N4, the droid partner of New Republic pilot Lieutenant Callahan. In the Expanded Universe, the E-Wing was the first starfighter to be designed for exclusive use with the latest R7 astromech models. While we don’t know definitively just what kind of astro unit KE4 is, they’re making their debut ahead of their comrade alongside the E-Wing.

KE4 will come on their own retro-styled, Vintage Collection cardback—and while Hasbro wouldn’t confirm whether or not the E-Wing’s pilot is on the way as a separate release... well, perhaps it would be safe to assume that at some point your shiny new spaceship toy is going to have someone you can slide into the cockpit.

The Vintage Collection E-Wing will cost $100, and is set to release sometime in fall 2024. Preorders begin later today, February 7, at 1 p.m. ET on Hasbro Pulse, for a limited-time window closing at 11:59 p.m. ET on March 5.

Pre-order exclusively on #HasbroPulse today beginning at 1:00pm ET through

March 5th, 2024. You do NOT want to miss out on adding this starfighter to your collection.


The Star Wars The Vintage Collection New Republic E-Wing & KE4-N4 will also be available later this year on @shopDisney and Disney Parks.

Now up for pre-order.

I’m really impressed with the design/scaling for the E-Wing. It looks like a replica of the one we saw in Ahsoka. Great job all around.

I also think this was a good investment for new tooling for a vehicle. I can’t imagine Filoni or Favreau not using the E-Wing in future Mandoverse projects, so I’m sure we’ll see it again which will give Hasbro a chance to repaint/repack it in the future.

OK hasbro, w/ "Sonny" ,"Cher" and now, "Elton", we see the theme here. So can you give us an "Ozzy", or "Lemmy" next? You can pass on "Bono"

I like the design and it looks like Hasbro did a good job of balancing toy and model. Pulse offered free shipping, and that was enough for me to bite on a preorder. I hope they make that delivery date in December!
 
This is outside of my collecting focus, but wow this is beautiful! Well done, Hasbro!
 
Got my order in. I'm debating of ordering a second one and painting it like the Action Fleet E-wing, also adding the top cannon.
 
Got one preordered. That is a long time dream come true! I've wanted an E-Wing since the first time I read Dark Empire back in the 90's. The Action Fleet toy was great, but well the wrong scale!

I really hope they reuse that droid to make a Kenner R2-D2.
 
Whoa...where'd this come from? Who saw this coming? Talk about blindsided...in a good way. Whoa, hey, ah...this is awesome. Instant pre-order. I was so happy to see the E-Wing re-canonized. Now, here's hoping it gets some action in the Mando movie.

Now, here's hoping for the A-Wing and yellow Y-Wing to get new decos and reissued in TVC. Why not throw in a TIE Interceptor too?

the E Wings back then when they were in Dark Empire 1 or in the Heir to the Empire Trilogy books, were the E Wings supposed to be faster than X-Wings or are the E Wings supposed to have better weapons or whatever?
 
Yeah I can mentally see an E looking at a Birdseye view, but I never could figure the B in B-wing. Just figured x,y then a, b
B-Wing got that designation because the prop team for ROTJ was told to create two new fighters and designated them 'Fighter A' and 'Fighter B', which then just stuck, with the happy accident that the A-Wing could look like an A, thus leaving the B-Wing out in the cold.
