Now you mention it.....
Here's a question. Toy Run facebook group have put up this comparison pic of the Rebels A Wing and Ep 8 A Wing. There's quite a difference, which had me wondering if the new version is alot larger that the OT one, or did Hasbro just reduce the size of the Rebels iteration to lower costs ?
Just like the sequel era X-Wings represent a subtle twist on the classic design, so too the new sequel era A-Wing is subtly distinct from her predecessor. The new toy is totally new tooling based on this new design but scales well with the classic era A-Wing toy.Thank you Rev. SO they really have just re-used the old A Wing design. Having said that, I rather like the Rebels compactness
I know that ship! I was a FASA Starship Combat dork in the 90s. Loved that game. By modern standards it's not all that Romulan looking now, but back in the day we didn't have as much to go on. FASA's Romulan craft were often quite blocky. This one was supposed to be a contemporary of the 1701A, as I recall. I kinda liked the Whitewind back then. Now that we have seen so many new designs and the more flowing aesthetic is firmly established, she seems a little inelegant. Someone did a nice job working up a 3D model though ...Well maybe not canon ships, but the planform is reminiscent of the FASA Romulan Whitewing class.
Sigh...so true. I want to see Leia's ship made most of all - but the FO had some interesting capital ships. I even liked the Resistance transport / escape pods!Post movie viewing thoughts:
sooooo many ships and vehicles in TLJ that we won't see as Micromachines and Titaniums, etc. Dangit. How disappointing.
