Per the requests of many, here (http://www.sandtroopers.com/sandwatch/hasbro/20090713/) is an Imperial repaint of the V-wing starfighter. It looks to be a different paint scheme from the Titanium version, if that matters to anyone. It looks pretty awesome, though.

I agree. I will probably get myself 2 of these.

This is a pretty neat repaint and hopefully (as JT mused in the TX130 thread) Hasbro will do an Imperial repaint on the Fighter Tank as well, tying the end of the Clone Wars into the rise of the Galactic Empire.

I don't think I'll pick this one up. This and the new arc 170 open up a new era: Early Imperial. I gotta draw the line somewhere, and it might as well be here.

This eBay auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/new-star-wars-imperial-v-wing-starfighter-clone-wars_W0QQitemZ170352123604QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_De faultDomain_0?hash=item27a9c71ed4&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1205|293%3A2| 294%3A50#ht_3718wt_907) shows that the ship will be a TRU exclusive, but you can get it from him for $50 after shipping. Unfortunately, I doubt TRU will be much cheaper. :p

i love the color scheme for the both the V-Wing and ARC-170 and hope to be able to add them to my collection. the thing that bums me about the V-Wing is the red Astromech dome on the ship. i mean couldn't Hasbro have painted it grey or even black to match the colors of the Empire.......red seems to stick out like a sore thumb on the ship
