Biggs' Red 3 X-Wing Fighter Biggs' Red 3 X-Wing Fighter - The Vintage Collection 2013 The Vintage Collection
Hasbro offered collectors a new X-Wing Fighter for their A New Hope Death Star battle diorama in July of 2013 with the Toys "R" Us exclusive Red 3 X-Wing Fighter. While The Vintage Collection packaging simply stated it as 'X-Wing Fighter', we all recognized it instantly as the vehicle used by Luke's childhood friend Biggs Darklighter in the epic mission where he paid the ultimate price in the Rebellion's efforts to free the galaxy from the tyranny of Darth Sidious. At the time of its release, Hasbro made a brand new Biggs figure available through the first wave of figures in their Black Series collection. To fill in the other hole, collectors would have to go back to the 2006 Entertainment Earth exclusive Astromech Droid Pack Series I boxed set for the R2-Q2 droid.

First announced at Celebration V as a new X-Wing Fighter, it wasn't until Hasbro's 2013 Toy Fair presentation that it was revealed to be Biggs' last ride ever.
