Quick post.



What are those three ships flanking the shuttle at the beginning of the ROTS trailer?

The look super cool and would make a great toys.

V-Wing Starfighters. They are the less heavily-armed Clonetrooper starfighters from Revenge of the Sith.

I looked up V-Wing and there seems to be more then one type of V-Wink in the Star Wars EU.

Why Hasbro doesn't have this on shelves/headed to shelves is beyond me. Looks like a perfect 20-dollar-range vehicle. It should fly off shelves as good or better than the 20-range vehicles they have now...

I agree, or make it an exclusive for HasbroToyShop.com. That would be a good way to get the website going strong. They could even do it for $25-30 and toss in the V-Wing Pilot.

The V-Wing in the EU comes from the Dark Empire comic book series. They are a heavily-armed, extremely fast but unshielded combat airspeeder developed by the New Republic.

It is always interesting to see new canon ride roughshod over EU material...just goes to show the point that some fans argue that the EU is not canonical. It may be "official" in terms of licensing, but it is a distinctly-different universe.

One of the TV spots has a shot of some V-Wing Starfighters flying a patrol in the foreground with one of the new Republic Cruisers (or whatever they are called now) in the background, and the shot looks like something RIGHT out of Empire...great stuff.

I always think of Rogue Squadron when I hear V-Wing. I hate how they get the EU mixed up.

V-Wing is too obvious of a ship. Of course there is a V-Wing, when you think of what letters would make good ships it's the first that comes to mind.
