    If it's stops, they'd have to be engineered in there on purpose, and that leads back to the question, why would they pay extra money to do that?

    JT - Are you implying that Hasbro would make an inferior product?

    No, I'm saying they wouldn't make a superior one for no reason.

    Yeah, this thing is kinda plain-looking. At least we got Grievous' starfighter, which is a work of art. :-D

    Well what do you expect from an EU designed vehicle? Looks like Genndy sketched out the design in about 5 minutes. Still, looks better than the Virago or the Outrider or even the Cruise Missile Trooper.

    I told JediTricks that. I think he just posted stuff to frighten people of the contrary in the absense of the pictures and ignite a controversy for his own perverse pleasure. I suspect a conspiracy.

    I am now researching whether JT is behind the plot to have the DNC refuse to seat Florida's and Michigan's delegates as well.

    It will be much harder to prove he caused Hurricane Katrina, but that also remains a possibility.

    Nothing gets by me.

    Eventually, I will also link him to the Oscars snubbing Michael Bay's getting an Academy Award for Transformers!

    Then there will be words!

    hmmm - see I heard that JT was behind the Kennedy assassinations (both Sr. and Jr.) AND the fake moon walk. I thought it was crazy talk....till just now.

    Tycho - if I don't post for a few days - send out a search team....

    THERE WAS NEVER ANY QUESTION TO WHETHER THE STUPID MIDDLE WING FOLDED DOWN!!! Dude, this whole time you've been arguing a foregone conclusion, I said it folded down when I first saw it, it's obvious because of the underside design we can see. The sane people around here are worried that the SIDE WINGS won't fold down past horizontal - "HORIZONTAL", that phrase I've been using about this for weeks now, how the hell could the middle wing have anything to do with folding past horizontal when it folds along the midline vertical axis?!? GEEZ!

    Apparently the part about NOBODY WAS TALKING ABOUT THE CENTER WING got by you.

    They don't give out an Oscar for being crappy.

    Don't encourage him, it's like feeding the monkeys, they mimic you eating popcorn so you give them some, but the end result is you'll have a face full of monkey poop.

    I would hope that the wings would fold correctly and that if Hasbro took the time and money to make it, they would do it right. There is not reference materials showing it with the wings straight out so it wouldn't make any sense to design the toy that way.

    I was really disappointed to hear that no real deco would be done to the ship. It looks unfinished and reminds me of the very first x-wing. We are so far beyond getting toys like that. We can't even get the engine fans in black??? Bogus.

    Yeah, the deco answer was pretty odd, they haven't done a "clean" white vehicle in forever. BTW, I saw the CGI version for the new cartoon and it too has the wings fold down this far, so I have to hope this is all a prototype issue.
