    I wonder if there is so much interest in the Y-wing that their website is being blitzed? Trying to access it and it seems dead at the moment.

    Photo of the actual product is up at MR now, Y-Wing looks outstanding but I like the base that was shown at the Pre-Toyfair better than the the one you will receive even if it does have the turbo laser tower. Just not a fan of the mirrored bases.

    It's on the blog.

    I don't like the base either. The ship looks okay (not enough pics to fully judge yet), but I'm not a fan of it. Well, not enough to justify buying this.

    Wow, pricey. I should have made a different decision last year.

    Expected to begin shipping
    Late Summer 2006.

    Tasked with the daunting challenge of stopping the EmpireÂ’s new, planet-killing weapon from forever ending the hopes of the freedom fighting rebels, a rag-tag fleet of Rebel Alliance starfighters takes off from the fourth moon of Yavin.

    While Red Leader and his spirited squadron of X-wing fighters engage the turbo lasers and TIE fighters of the Imperials, Gold Squadron in their older but sturdy Y-wing fighters begin a daring attack run on a small thermal exhaust port: the one identifiable weakness of the dreaded Death StarÂ…

    Bring home the excitement of the Battle of Yavin as Master Replicas adds this most famous of starfighters from the Star Wars saga to our acclaimed Studio Scale series of model replicas.

    Created from a direct study of Lucasfilm archival materials, the Rebel Y-wing combines hundreds of model kit parts and dimensions from the many models used to portray this classic ship onscreen into a faithful representation that features:

    * Machined aluminum and brass components
    * Quality resin construction
    * Injection molded details
    * Individual stand featuring a museum quality
    display base
    * Plaque and certificate of authenticity

    I did not see the dimensions of this thing advertised anywhere. Anyone have any ideas?

    Why is the base so cheesy looking? For $800 they could of done much better IMO. I'm not that impressed - for that much I would expect some lights in it too.

    I like the base, very unique.
    The trench base was cool too, but this one is cool also.
    I wish they had a size spec on it.

    I agree, not a good choice if you ask me.

    Looks to be a fine model though. At least it is studio scale unlike the Snowspeeder.

    Let's hope they have better luck with these than they seem to be having with the Vader lids.
