    Thanks Brit C

    [SIZE=1][FONT=times new roman][COLOR=royalblue]
    Thanks for the Virago, it came yesterday and I was so tired, I couldn't post till today.

    My take on it; I know it took a lot of courage for me to decide I wanted one of these as I am not into EU at all, but I'm glad I did.

    Now you may cry out about the Epic collections I had all you want, but that came about by accident; the 6 books were lying around my brothers' bedroom some years ago so I read them and then figured mms of them would be really cool -which they are, particularly the Flurry. Incidentally, the B-wing is teh same mold as the mm JT, no expanded cockpit. What IS it with the jinx-o-plane B-wing???

    Anyway, I Like It. Nice solid swivelling guns, 4 wings as independent as Destinys Child and a nice slidey-outey cockpit. Also all the joints and connections are very tight - as there are no children (mm, they taste of chicken, apparently!) in my environs with the exception of my godchildren -one of whom is an idiot savant and not impressed by such puerile simple joys - they will remain tight I hope.

    Xizor and Guri are okay. I can't really comment on them as I've never read the SW comics but it's nice to have a figure in the cockpit.

    This is a weird design, I keep thinking of HR Giger's art. It's also very arachnid- which reminds me of the warrior bugs in Starship Troopers.

    It's been about 2 or 3 years since I decided to get this I think, so thanks Brit C.

    And for all those interested (GSJ ) the box is in the bin, the ship is on my lap.

    Talking i can vouch for the tightness of those wings baby!

    it's been two years since the jean genie got me my virago, and it's been in masons play rotation since.

    none of the wings are loose (now why couldn't they have used the same workmanship with that stupid piece o' manhood hangin' off the bottom of the skyhopper? , that things been loose, and swiveling since about day 2 outta the box ), and i don't know about the quality control testers at the old galoozba, but mason cracks those puppies with regularity, and they is still tight-o-mite!

    a great toy all around!

    Rat poopies! What the björk is up with that? The pics made it seem like it was gonna have a longer cockpit, but apparently it was just cheaper to throw in a previously-made item. I guess the problem with the B-wing is that ever since it got it's main action sequence cut from ROTJ (a real shame, from the look of things), it's been a "nobody" ship, that is to say, it doesn't have the personality the others do because we never see it kick butt.

    Oh, and if you close your VB code tags with [/color] and similar, that would work better. I would have edited that for you, but I didn't know what text you wanted it to end at.

    Eh up,

    My expanded B-wing is definately a re-mold - the cockpit is slightly larger.

    And now for something completely different......

    Glad that you like the stuff, GSJ.

    And changing the subject completely...........

    My kid sister is UK Marketing Manager for Nintendo and is often involved in the production of the animated/real time movies between game levels.

    Well, she has just been judging a Sci-fi short film competition in London last week and her co-judge was the most splendid Terry Gilliam - see pic.

    How cool is that?????????????????
