Well, some more pics from HK.

Not sure what to make of the shuttle... not overwhelmed, exactly... Would have preferred all-black.

I guess Palpy's hand would be pale, pasty, and grubby lookin'... just like the paintjob.

Here's another Dali JSF for ya, JT.

Isn't the Emperor's Hand Mara Jade?

Depending on the source, she was a Hand. Others may have included, but are not limited to, Imagda Rosen (Lord Nyax's Mother), Savrec Qest, Ardyn Lyn, Lumiya, possibly Marek Steele and the higher ranks in the Secret Order of the Empire (from TIE Fighter).

Silly Jedi, warping is for Star Trek star-drives.

The Shuttle looks grungy...and as far as I can that's the only significance. That's...incredibly disappointing. I suppose it's better than another contrived ARC-170 repaint though.

i don't know but something about the shuttle makes me think it's a custom paint job and not an official TS product, the paint apps look way too messy to be official... of course i couold be wrong

These 2 pics of the shuttle came from 2 different eBay sellers in HK (apparently)... one of the sellers is the guy who gets (and sells) many TS ships early. He also sells protos.

There's a good chance that they're rejects from the factory. One seems messier than the other.

I do think, sadly, that they're likely legit... but not exactly awe-inspiring, huh? I guess we'll have to wait until official pics come out to know for sure.

Maybe they should have gone with Emperor's Teeth... they look a bit chewed.

Nah, they're the real thing. At first I would have guessed that's supposed to be the Tyderium since the Tyderium is a big dirty and stolen (just a bit stolen). But they've been kinda off the charts with these repaints lately, so Hand makes about as much sense - black would have been way cooler though.

Dang, someone sit on that poor JSF?
