The vintage B-Wing figure has near-as-dammit the correct chest-box layout. You can see this on the briefing scene if you look at the guys in the red jump-suits. It's hard to call but as there is not chest-box per se, rather, more of a circuit board layout, and as such its not simply a case of adding on a new piece.Since1978 said:I think the chest box being separate will be what saves this - I've never seen a clear enough picture to show the flightsuit of the B-Wing or Y-Wing pilot - so this flight suit looks FINE - at least to me - the underlying vest seems to be in the right proportion, at least to my eye, so if you mold the figure in red, paint the vest white, paint the "bracers" light brown and then mold a new head, helmet and chest box, I think you have the winning formula for a B-Wing pilot - remember pilots would be different builds, heights, etc. so the way the vest fit relative to the waist (or torso articulation in the case of a figure) would vary.
I'll go back and look through the pictures further to see if I can see a difference, but to me, the BASE of the figure - just the flight suit and vest - are more than enough to get really close on the B-Wing and Y-Wing pilots - especially given the dearth of reference on the subject.
Here's hoping that Hasbro has AT LEAST that in the works!
Tycho is also wearing a strange under-vest that none of the other pilots, be they A-wing, B-Wing or Y-Wing, in the briefing scene are wearing.
So I propose a new torso sculpt for all future rebel pilots.
and presumably paint the ankle-guards the correct shade of beige as seen in the briefing room. Tycho's have been painted black for some unknown reason :SToonimator said:Crynyd's suit was indeed green, so basically all they'd need to do (barring a fully accurate chestbox) is ditch the Tycho-logos on the shoulders, sculpt a new head, and sculpt the cockpit-scenes helmet that Green Leader and the "Copy, Gold Leader" guy wore.
upon re-watching the briefing scene for the n-th time I noticed a female x-wing pilot sitting behind Lando during the "I didn't know they were looking for someone to lead this crazy attack" conversation.
So, naturally we need a female pilot body-sculpt as well. (I haven't read any EU books or comics are there any female pilots there? two "birds" with one stone.)
