We don't even know if the Blue will appear in Rise of Skywalker. Now, if they went retroactive to The Force Awakens, the Blue would be really nice.
Well yeah, it's not like they only release stuff from the newest film.

Just got my Poe X-Wing today - definitely digging all the intricate detail and excellent landing gears with closing doors. Love the wing mechanism, the whole ship feels very solidly constructed. Impressive all around. I just wish it had a proton torpedo like Luke's or even the gun that comes out on the bottom of the blue version that Poe never got to take off in on Jakku.

This is the problem I have with my X-Wing. I think I'll have to go through the hassle of ordering another one, and swapping the parts.

I don't think I ever posted an update. I wound up ordering another one, and the guns were correct. I also noticed that the flight control stick in the cockpit was bent beyond fixing, so I just sent the first one back and told them it was defective from the factory. Now that I have one with the correct guns and no other issues, I really do like this ship! Hasbro did a fantastic job with this one!

Poe's X-Wing is down to $68 on Amazon.ca! I bought it at $90, so I wish I had waited a little while. Definitely worth grabbing at this price (it's 51% off regular retail price!).

Local stores have this priced at €150. Will certainly keep an eye on the wab for a deal in the coming weeks months. There's no way i spend that much on a 1/18 vehicle.

Amazon UK knocked this down to £89 as a last minute deal (assumed for Christmas), so I’ve bit the bullet and ordered one. I’m not a massive 3.75 inch collector anymore, that part of me died when VC went on Hiatus, but I won’t pass up a cool looking ship in any scale.
Unfortunately Amazon must have been hit with an influx of orders as I checked out as the thing went from Prime Next Day delivery to sometime around Friday lol.
Ah well, not in a rush.

Aww man, just read this and rushed to check but it's back up to £118 now. Fingers crossed it maybe drops again on Boxing Day!

Well my X-Wing finally arrived and it’s a great ship. Love the paint job and detailing. Mine came with all the correct blasters too unlike some I’ve read here. The only issue I’ve found with mine is that the right wing landing gear column won’t stay plugged into the joint in the actual wing. It falls out very easily and if you lift the ship up, the piece is always left behind.
i’ll have to look into adding some nail polish or something to tighten the joint.

Had the same exact problem but I just ended up decided to display it on a flightpose stand so it’s not an issue for me anymore. Hopefully, they can fix that when they release the eventual Black and Orange version in a year or two.

There area few worthy listings on EBay (at least for us overseas customers) but those customs fees added over shipping fees pretty much kill those deals.

I ordered this with a gift card as a late Christmas gift to myself and I love it. It's awesome, it looks great, the attention to detail is spectacular! But I have a question...

On the top side, toward the back of the body, there's a button that doesn't seem to do anything. Does anyone know what that's for?

one button opens the wings - the other closes them. If the wings aren't open it does nothing

Thank you so much!! I didn't even realize there was a first button (the one to open the wings). The whole ship is pretty detailed and I only noticed the second one because I felt it.

I much prefer this design as it allows the wings to really hold tighter instead of some L-slider like the Luke X-Wing and those before it. Even the original Kenner design is still superior IMO, push down the R2 head and you get a firm X. Pull back the blue button to release. But the Poe ship definitely fixes the glaring mistake that has existed for years.

This is actually the first x wing I've ever owned. The two-button system seems pretty practical and makes a lot of sense to me. I really like this ship a lot and I'm pretty comfortable with the price I paid for it.

Went ahead and ordered this from Walmart since they had it on “sale” for $69. A little better then $99. When pulling it out of the box, Do you have to slide the nose on like Luke’s X-wing?

No, just nose cap. I'm still trying to hunt down a 3.75" BB-8 that isn't crap.

Ordered this version from Walmart.com and now I am trying to find a 3.75 inch scale BB8. Any help?
Cheapest option looks to be the TFA three-pack with Teedo and one of Unkar's thugs:

https://smile.amazon.com/Star-Wars-...eywords=star+wars+teedo&qid=1583182472&sr=8-5

Don't know if this one counts as crap, but it's the cheapest out there. Other options are the three-pack with Rose in First Order disguise and BB-9E and the TFA pack with Rey, Finn, and Maz. There's also the Resistance cartoon Poe that comes with a somewhat stylized BB-8. But those are all pricier than the one linked above.

Hasbro Toy Shop on ebay has the Resistance Poe/BB-8 for 6.99, you get free shipping if you spend more than $15.

I really like this little guy for the X-Wing. His noggin really stands out. I'm on the road for work now, but I can supply a photo when I get back.

Really glad I passed on the basic X-wing that came out for Force Awakens back 2015. This one is way better. After hearing of all the horror stories of bent cannons and the Poe figure barely fitting in the cockpit. Though I would have preferred the Black and Orange color scheme though.

You can probably still find that Rose/BB-8/BB-9E 3 pack at places like Ollie's, Five Below, Burlington, Ross, etc. They're usually around $5.

I picked up that Rose/Droids pack at Burlington awhile back for less than $5, just to get the droids.

I found that Rose/Droids set amongst a bunch of Solo sets at Meijer. Of course, this was one day after dropping $8 on just the BB-8 on eBay after not seeing that set anywhere for months.

Not complaining though, because he looks awesome in the X Wing.

one of my landing gear is loose. With the Gear down, if I pick the ship off the ground and shake it once, the one side will often fall out from gravity. Anyone have a fix or this? You can't glue it, because the joint needs to be able to twist, in order to put the gear back up.

It's definitely one of the worst parts of the ship, I have no idea why they simply couldn't engineer the thing on a permanent swivel that wouldn't come out. Seems like a really stupid design on a ship that has a ton of GREAT design. Only weakness I could find, outside of the omission of electronics. I think some putty in there might help it stick in place and still rotate when you need it to, since it doesn't harden. Wouldn't take much, but it would probably provide the friction necessary.

I wonder if maybe a few coats of clear nail polish or something would also do the trick?

Late to the party but this thing is awesome and I wasnt expecting it to be so massive! Found an Amazon warehouse deal and used rewards points so I only paid $27 out of pocket. This is going to drive me to track down a deal on lukes next!

I kinda forgot about this because I was waiting for the price to drop but it's still $99 on Amazon. If anyone notices a decent price drop please bump this thread and tag me. :)
