    V-19 Torrent Starfighter

    This looks pretty cool, too! I wonder how many the cockpit seats? 1 or 2?

    Will they re-release the AOTC trooper pilot figures?

    1 figure, and BARELY that it appears:

    This thing looked super boring in Steve's shot of their display, at first I thought it was an unfinished prototype:

    And it appears the wings go no lower than that, judging by the Hasbro photography (you can see a block on the wing's gutter just barely peeking out)

    It really is lackluster and perhaps underscaled. On the Lego thread, I said that I'd probably get Hasbro's V-19 over Lego's but it'll probably be the other way around now.

    The LEGO versions' wings are geared to move together, but the set is likely $40. Still, it is more to scale than this Hasbro $20 version. Maybe Hasbro will get it more exciting in time for its release, but I suspect this is kinda it.

    Why would they bother to make the ship and then make it so you can't deploy the wings correctly?

    It doesn't make sense. I believe they just didn't know how to display it correctly - or they did it purposely wrong for some reason someone "intellectualized."

    If that's as far as the wings go, then I may have to pass. I'm really a little baffled at the lack of weathering seeing as how they've loved to paint the crap out of every other vehicle they've done in the past for the most part.
    I hope the final version looks better than the one in the photos.

    Maybe the version in the new show only deploys to that range. The cockpit is a totally different shape after all. Still, it seems odd to not at least let it go to that level to pay homage, let it stop at both places.

    Maybe, but I just don't like them deployed that way. Doesn't look right.

    The funny thing is, for me, I'm not even remotely attached to this ship's design, I never even liked it in the original CW show, but I totally agree that the "wide wing" look doesn't seem right for this.

    I'll admit it's not my favorite ship either, but I wouldn't mind at least one. I'll have to wait to see on this one though.
