Off to check Maynards want list!My apologies to all the people that tried to get in touch with me over the past couple of weeks(I had a death in the family & had to fly up & down the east coast 3 times, life’s been a hectic while)......
In any case.....for anyone who is still looking for one of these, please feel free to PM me.
The red version does have an interesting look. They were in "The Last Jedi" in the hangar preparing to launch before Kylo Ren blew it all up. I'm hoping since there look to be A-wings in "The Rise of Skywalker" that we'll see a red version actually flying around. It'd be an easy toy for Hasbro to re-release, too.Just recently got this TLJ red variant A-wing. Beautiful vehicle. This is my favorite version of the A-wing, ever. Even though I'm not sure this was even in the films, I really like the red-dominant aspect of the ship.
Also like how this is the "opposite" color-wise of the 1997 POTF2 version. I.e., the '97 ROTJ version had the red color in the middle, and the white color on the sides - which was obviously screen accurate re: the fim. Conversely, this red variant A-wing showcases the red color on the sides, and the white in the middle.
A-wing history has gotten a little convoluted. Pre-Endor appearances of the A-wing, like in the "Droids" cartoon, were retconned as modified R-22 Spearheads, an in-process prototype of the RZ-1 A-wing. Though it was likely due to the animation style, this gave an excuse for the smaller, delta shape since the A-wing was being developed "on the fly". Hera Syndulla's A-wing fits that timeline and shape but does not use the twin-barrelled laser cannons like the "Droids" and ROTJ versions. Instead, it has single cannon pods very similar to the RZ-2 evolution seen in "The Last Jedi". Not sure if it was a design oversight for "Rebels" or if they were trying to connect designs 60+ years apart because they're both modern toy creations, but it feels a little inconsistent.Wow, I didn't realize the Rebels A-wing was that much smaller than the other two. It's just a darn shame it has that ugly Nerf launcher underneath.
