I have to ask, if they are for kids as Hasbro claims, why the inflated prices? No lights, sounds, or electronics of any kind, no removable droid, no landing gear or storage hatch, the only features are spring loaded wings and a missile and at a shrunken size... 50.00 bucks. If they are for kids, why the high price? What about this x-wing justifies that price, other than profit?Yeah, I find one at WM back in August for $15 and figured that was a decent price. Anything over $30 for this at launch was way too much, imo.
But, like I've said before, Hasbro says this line is for kids, so I don't feel bad waiting for clearance.
Haven't seen the U-wing out of the box in person yet, but the lack of a troop transport feature is a bit of a let down. At least there hasn't been any reports of warped wings or bent cannons.This vehicle was terrible, but I think Hasbro learned a thing or two and did much better with the U-Wing.
I don't get how so many people have such a hard time getting Poe into the cockpit for.In its defense I'll say the wing action works very smooth. And it does have a front land gear, FWIW. But man, I cannot get past that squishy rubber nose cone that just barely stays in place and how I had to cram, wedge and finagle to get Poe to sit in the cockpit and have the cockpit close.
Another safe method would be to boil some water, put in a bowl or something, and dip it until it gets soft enough to straighten. Then hold it straight and run it under some cool tap water to lock in the shape.How do you guys straighten these things out? Just heat with a blow dryer?
