You can order it from Walmart.com free shipping to storeIs that gold set out yet? I actually want that. Gold BB-8? Oh yes.
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!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.
Managed to get mine for $60 shipped from AMZ after a $10 discount...the price will keep dropping...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!).
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!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.
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.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.
one button opens the wings - the other closes them. If the wings aren't open it does nothingI 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?
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.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.
Cheapest option looks to be the TFA three-pack with Teedo and one of Unkar's thugs:Ordered this version from Walmart.com and now I am trying to find a 3.75 inch scale BB8. Any help?
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.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.
I wonder if maybe a few coats of clear nail polish or something would also do the trick?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.

Let us know if you do, I've been looking for a Luke X-Wing deal all year.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!
