    Pretty awesome fig and fun transformation, from ship to bot mode that is.
    Seems tricky getting back to ship mode , but maybe it's just me.

    Bot mode is really nice. Only problem is he comes unpegged from the waist easy from posing, or you can use it to get better poses, but it kills his stability.

    Bought it for the Y-Wing mainly. Did'nt feel like shelling out the $25 for the big one. Everything's pretty tight , will get some pics later of it with the Action Fleet Y Wing.

    ah well, not too good with reviews, so here's some pros...

    Engines pull out at the ends (feet) and there's 2 hidden pistols that are removeable.

    This guy is pretty cool. Got him for $9 on HTS.

    But where in the world are you seeing the main CW line Y-Wing for $25?

    Would you mind posting more bot mode pics in different poses and angles? Looks like this could be one of the few really nice SWTFs.

    My bad, I meant the big non transforming Y Wing, that usually go for $24.99.
    Still tempted to get it, would look so good next to the big classic Y Wing.

    This guy was at an out-of-town Target over a week ago for only 10 dollars. I probably shouldn't have passed him up.

    For some reasons not all Targets have him on sale, or maybe the sale was over when I hit another Target.
    Rebelscum.com would probably know.

    @13x I'll try and get some more pics up. I wanted to just make a post on him originally, but there was no thread :lol 
    Owning all the SWTF's so far though, this guy's one of the better clones. Everything seems to go in the right place and he's pretty solid since there's not much ship kibble to dangle everywhere. He's so plain actually it's hard for them to screw anything up.
    Waist comes unconnected easily though when you're trying to get some uber poses going on.

    He's as floppy as they come. Now that Ive messed around with him a bit, his torso ,head & arms are the only good things. Back kibble flops, does'nt peg well and the legs are a mess. With some mods he can be improved though, and he always looks good. If you just leave your figs posed on the shelf all day, he's worth it.
    Still sastified with Y Wing mode , fits in with the Action Fleets.

    some posing...

    knees only bend back this far, which makes the kneeling almost impossible

    He looks cool, I just don't like that tentacle like design on his face and that his torso is so beefy while his arms are so skinny...

    he's actually pretty solid looking, which is saying something for this line.

    Really bothers me that his head is SUCH a different aesthetic from the rest of him, it looks to much like an action figure part, instead of a TF part... (like a clone trooper is wearing a Transformer suit)
