Class III U-Wing



I don't know why, but this image actually makes me like the U-wing now ... I didn't like it that much from the initial leaks, and teasers/trailers.

This would be 25 dollars in 2012 with better paint apps. Fifty dollars is too high of a price but if they make this ship into lego form later on, i will buy it.
The Lego version is coming day one. (and doesn't look too much smaller than this one...)

Reminds me of the fighter from Buck rogers except for the engines on the sides of the ship. Looks cool as a fighter but yeah for 50 bones it should have been a lot bigger. Two figures in the cockpit and maybe room for 4 in the back.
Fun Fact is Ralph Macquarrie actually designed the Buck Rogers starfighter, but it was meant originally for Battlestar Galactica, until they went with the Colonial Viper design.

Leave it to Hasbro to turn a multi-passenger transport into what looks like a single seater, and more nerf guns. I can't wait until the "year of the nerf" comes to an end.
My thoughts exactly. Epic fail here. They should have made this the big ship for the line and given us the Rebel equivalent to the Republic Gunship.


Why does Hasbro think that merging Star Wars toys with Nerf is a good idea? They may as well start replacing the figures with Weeble Wobbles.
I'm sure that idea has come up in more than a few discussions at Hasbro staff meetings.

I must have missed it in the migration of threads but where did the pic come from and where is everyone hearing $50?
It's from a fan site who got a "scoop."

The $50 price point comes from it being classified as a Class III vehicle.

Is there any chance that the pilot and the starship are 2 different pictures, just put together and not actually in scale with each other? That cockpit looks like it could almost be wide enough for 2 if the ship scale was just a fraction bigger.

Nice to have it, although it's obviously a two-seater, they unfortunately appear to have scaled it down to a one seat.




Plus the whole point of introducing this uniquer ship, is this is a larger troop transport, to distinguish it from all the smaller one-man fighters we've seen before. Yet they turned into a one-man ship?

And scaled down, looks like you're not going to be able to fit any troops into that hull either. Which again at this scale defeats the purpose of introducing this new unique ship's function.
Woo-Hoo-Hasbro! B):wtf:
