  • Comments: The X-Wing Fighter has become the symbol of the Rebellion. Swift, reliable and highly responsive in battle, this rugged craft is capable of absorbing plenty of damage in combat. X-Wings have flown in all the major battles against the Empire and are the preferred fighters of Rebel pilots. In the bustling Alliance hangars, X-Wings are prepared for another battle with Imperial fighters, as pilots and technicians check engines, instruments and weapons. Once Alliance pilot, Wedge Antilles, flew an X-Wing in the Battle of yavin as Red Two and as Red Leader in the Battle of Endor.

















    Points of Interest:
  • X-Wing Starfighter is a repaint of 2002's SAGA Luke Skywalker's X-Wing Fighter
  • Wedge Antilles is a kit-bash figure using the arms, legs, and crotch of Nrin Vakil, the gloves and helmet of 2006's VTSC Wes Janson, a new torso and head. The helmet is the same as similar X-Wing Pilots, but the plastic has been stretched to fit Wedge's head.
  • The unnamed Astromech Droid is a repaint of 2005's ROTS R4-G9. In the Rogue Squadron novels, Wedge flew with an astromech droid named "Mynock" who later was reprogrammed with a new name, "Gate". Both of these droids are R5 units, so they are not the droid included in this set. The identity of this droid will have to remain a mystery for now...
  • UPDATE! This droid has been identified as R2-A3.
  • The display stand shown in the photos is not included with the vehicle. It's a FlexiDisplay stand, and you can find out more about it here.

    Poll
    Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
    Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
    1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
    I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
    This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
    I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
    I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
