    Ummm. How does a local hobby shop owner know this? Unless he has a direct contact at Bandai, this is all rumour. This happened months ago after Bandai had the display at the toy show. Nobody ever said that a SD was in the works back then, but that didn't stop people from saying that it was coming. Not that I'm not wishing, that this was in the works, but I would like to hear more of an official word from Bandai.

    I think the Star Destroyer is too good to be true until an official announcement. But if it happens I'll s$&t my pants.

    Although not a popular one, I'd love to see Jabba's sail barge. Simply because you could have a lot of fun with paint

    I know Jaitea....I've been waiting for a decent styrene SD since 1978. As a kid, unboxing the MPC SD was a big disapointment. Even back then I knew the proportions werent' correct and all that raised detail was sickening. Several years later (ok...maybe decades...showing my age here) I was just about to buy the Anigrand one, until they got a C&D. Then I was all for the RC SD, until I heard about problems with the resin castings (which I'm certain have been corrected). I'm going to wait for a bit and see if this rumour becomes truth. 1/1700 or anything smaller will do. Bandai has impressed (for the most part...there are always people that say things can be improved) and if they do release a SD in any scale, I'm sure they will knock it out of the park.

    Astroboy...now you're talking. That is something that needs to be done along with skiffs, characters and a Sarlaac pit.

    On another note, if anyone could tell the web designers of Bandai, that they are "TIE" fighters...it would be appreciated.

    Now they need to release an in-scale Salacious Crumb to nibble his eye.

    Now, if only a 1/48 Y-Wing of such quality... iconic all the way! (Almost there! Almost there!)

    That X-wing looks amazing but I don't care for the stand. Oh well. Minor quibble. I'll be picking up one of these.

    I do wish they'd done the 1:48 XW without the electronics - I don't need motors and lights if it takes a simple, still relatively small, mass-produced kit to eighty bucks.

    Or slightly worse. I'm seeing a cultman preorder at $99, with an msrp of $119. I can get over the price, but the wing mechanism needs a little TLC. Probably a simple fix with a file may give it a smoother transition.

    Due to the exchange rate, Hobby Link Japan will undoubtedly have the kit for MUCH less. The current Bandai kits are $16 on HLJ and around $30 on cultman. Nothing against cultman, but I made the mistake of preordering the stormtrooper through his site and then saw I could've saved $15 by ordering through HLJ. Lesson learned, at least on Bandai kits.

    Yeah, anything licensed for Japan should only be bought from a Japanese distributer.

    That 1/144 falcon that I bought for $20 from hlj sits at $109 at my local hobby shop

    The only problem that I have encountered on HLJ is that for some reason takes much longer to ship. Normally, I can get stuff in less than two weeks coming from overseas, but I waited a month for my order from them. But I will overlook the shipping times because of the great savings.

    Big gap on R2's head ???





    ....."Why you little.....!!"


    It's funny that with all the optional extras Bandai throw in,.....like all the tools & periscopes etc,....why is there no rocket pack to make R2 fly,.....its almost like the Prequels never existed!!!
