Check it out... from HK! Not the best pics but hey, they're the first that I've seen anywhere.

Not bad, methinks. Not sure if these are rejected castoffs or final product but they're loose!

I wonder what's going on with the V-19's cockpit? Yellow? I guess it's missing the proper canopy, unless it's upside down!!!!

Y'know, I think the "fin" levers down to the bottom and the ship's the right side up. I guess that you can't display it on its stand with the fin down, similar to the way you can't display the B-Wing properly.

I do like the large size of the ship, though.

The tank's pretty kewl, too.


Looking forward to both! Always nice to have a few new tools.

hmm...I'm dubious as to the legitimacy of those pics - they just don't look like Titaniums to me.

Still, wouldn't bother me if I'm wrong, they do look nice.

Nice pics, thanks DT. the tank looks great and the v-19 looks good, but.........

How, if it has a normal Titanium stand, does the center wing fold down?????

Maybe it will have a special stand made for it and the early version didn't get supplied with the stand before some random person absconded with it. It looks pretty nice though.

The tank is pretty nice as well, although seems a bit out of proportion in some spots. I just wonder if it will have a stand or a landscape piece.

Well dude, all I can say is that the seller is the same HK guy who's had loads of stuff early from the factory... I think they're legit. He often sells TS factory "seconds", so it's very possible that these are "nice" castoffs. The yellow canopy is a strong indication, but who knows?

LT and Jangu, I think that the Torrent will come with a regular stand... I think that the tailfin is hinged so that it'll drop under the ship only when it's not on the stand.

I'd much prefer it if the ship could be displayed in battle mode with the tailfin down... looks to me like this won't be possible.

I think we'll see... say, twenty V-19 repaints in the near future

Yay, the TX-130 is finally gonna be here! LEGO beat them to it, but this is the first one I'll own (the LEGO one is too much, it's $50). It's so rivety.

The V-19 looks alright, not feeling the yellow canopy or tan coloring though.

They both look great (gotta add them to my want list) but I'd be disappointed if the V-19 can't be displayed with the wing lowered in flight mode.

That's a good point, I don't know why that had eluded me until now. The figure toy can't be displayed that way either.
