I was looking at the images Amazon.com posted of their exclusive Red Leader X-wing (Amazon does Toys R Us' online orders).
I'm not buying that (though as a non-completist, there's a lot I don't get).
Garven (Red Leader's name is Garven Dreis) looks to be made out of skinny Luke (POTJ's) body and a new head (possibly WITHOUT removeable helmet).
If they made a good Garven Dreis figure, and his red&black R5 unit, I'd be all over those figures.
Hasbro Direct does a lot of the exclusive ships and they use the parts of old stuff (I mean the X-wing is the Power F/X X-wing that they've gutted since the Dagobah X-wing with R2D2 exclusive for 2002).
I never went for any of those, BTW.
I thought the POWER FX one was great, but I do dioramas. I also own 5 or more X-wings I use for various scenes, several near other ships such as TIE Fighters or the Millennium Falcon, and I'd like the scale appearances between the ships to look somewhat right.
So the original sculpt for the thing was cool - but there was never any place for that size in my collection.
If I recollect, the Power FX one didn't sell that great and was clearanced around 1999 (it debuted in 98).
I think the whole solution to the thing is to make the darn ships to scale:
The Falcon to scale we've wanted for years!
TIEs, A-wings, Y-wings, B-wings, etc. won't be that hard, and they'd sell all over again.
Then I'd go out and get the DAGOBAH X-wing, since the figures are removeable, and you just can't screw up R2D2!
