    found this over at 4inches.com looks like we've getting a Red A-Wing with new pilot using Tycho's body and a new head.

    Looks like the same old toy, just a new pilot.

    "I don't know about this one Clark."

    Blah...next!

    I'll get the pilot loose on E-Bay...

    Honestly, I don't get why someone would prefer a guy in a helmet with little or no back story over a EU character, and if this guy in a helmet does have a backstory it's EU!!!!

    I'll probably get 2 so I can put my Tycho figure in one, and you can have the extra pilot Sinscia.

    We talked about this in the TF08 thread. I was actually more excited about this than I was for Yarna. I've been wanted a movie-correct A-Wing Pilot for over ten years now.

    I'll walk past 100 AT-TEs to get this A-Wing, that's how excited I am for this one.

    A-wing is probably the most accurate vehicle the vintage line ever produced, awesome toy. And it's nice to see the helmet done right, something we SSG'ers can be proud of since we're the ones who brought it to Hasbro's attention.

    That helmet represents a big victory for the fans here at SSG. Especially with how quickly Hasbro announced a corrected version of the accessory after we brought it up in the Q&A. I don't know where to find Hasbro's response, but I remember they were completely unaware that the Tycho figure was given the wrong helmet for an A-Wing Pilot until that question was asked.

    I'm also really excited to see that they've molded the side cannons in black and painted the nozzles red and white like they were in the movie. Now let's just hope that they don't overdo the "dirty" paint applications this time around.

    The only thing that could possibly make this better is if they put the electronics back in; but that's almost too much to hope for. Which is kind of sad really, because the electronic lights and sounds were what really made the vintage vehicles come alive. The modern rereleases just feel like cheap hollow shells without them.

    looking at the picture there's a yellow 'glow' on the engines. now that could be a tan paint app. my first thought was that they may have slipped the 'tronics back in. doubtful though.
