Yes, Im very late in getting this toy (as per usual(you try to live up here and see how YOU do, Mr. Smartypants!)) but finally DID receive it today on Christmas morning. I like it very much. The ship is built with much sturdier plastic than I suspected it would be, and gives off a feeling of great solidity. The decals were simple to apply - the "trenches" designed into the molds fit my stickers perfectly. The paintjob on my Gunship is wonderful. The mechanisms work very well, and also give off a feeling of sturdiness - also, they don't take anything away from the look of the ship itself, It's awesome on display.
This is the second happiest I have ever been with any Christmas Star Wars present I have ever been given (and lo and behold there've been more than two or three), losing out only to my vintage Falcon when I was seven. It beats my vintage and modern ATAT's which is saying a good piece. Thanks so much for this wonderful vehicle.
