Vehicles: V-Wing Starfighter & clone pilot

According to Jedi Achieves, The Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing starfighter, often simply known as the V-wing starfighter/Nimbus fighter, was a short-ranged starfighter which was produce late in the Clone Wars, they act as escorts or petrol city like Coruscant.i remember seeing in the ROTS escorting Palpatine stuttle, which carried battle damage Anakin.

Mid of this year, Hasbro release a CW version of V-Wing which is similar to the ROTS version, which is just repack with a new packaging and comes with CW animated Clone Pilot (odd ball). And here's a look at that Vehicle:

Packaging:


Out of the Box:

Weapons & Accessories:
V-Wing:-
1) 1X Main V-Wing Body
2)4X Side Wings (2X on each side,up & down wing panels)
3) 2X Cock Pit Panels
4) 2X Rear Stabilizers
5) 4X Missiles

(no stickers application)

Clone Pilot:
1) DC-15 Blaster Pistol

Putting it all together:
Step 1: Attached side cockpit panels,like this:

They should be nicely fitted as such and are able to be adjusted

Step 2: Attached rear stabilizers (near engines):

Step 3: Attached side wings (top & bottom), apply a little more strength to fit it in properly (as its really hard to snap it on):


Step 4:Once its done, its nice fold-in this way! and too close it, you need to hold down two wings together.
To open wings,push in the top thruster as such:

Flight Mode (side view) :

Frontal view:

Step 5: Attached Front nosecone like this:

Step 6: insert Missiles into launchers on each side, like this:

And Your Finish!

Over-view with wings Close:



Close Up's:

outline not done for nosecone:





Retractable Landing Gear:


R4 Unit rotates 360

Clone Pilot fits nicely into cock pit:

still much space available above its head, nice!


My Verdict:

With the different starfighters added to the Republic Space Fleet, this V-Wing has to be my all time favorite!

As its looks simply stunning with its side wings panels close or open and has to be the sleeker's starfighter to swoop into action.

However! sleek as it maybe, the pricing that accompanies this starfighter vehicle ain't that cool and i personally feels its really over price (as its priced at RM199.90)! although its bundled with a figure, shouldn't it be cheaper? a price tag of Rm149.90 would have been more reasonble.

Although this came out in late June in Malaysia, there are still some TRU with this vehicle and if you don't mind the price tag, its worth to bag!

In the States an Imperial Version of this V-Wing has been release (just a different paint scheme), but we are yet to see it here!

Ratings:

vehicle: 9/10

Figure: 6/10

Overall: 9/10 (minus point on pricing)


ToyShop: : Toys R Us

Price: : 199.90 (comes with 1 Figure)

  1. You're spot on about the price for the CW V-Wing fighter. At RM199 is just damn bloody expensive. Yes it does come with the Clone Pilot action figure but then it's still bloody expensive. At RM199 I can buy the ARC 170 fighter and at RM109 I could buy the Torrent Fighter.

  2. Yeah!!

    Its really over priced, even if you added up the V-Wing at Rm109 + a Figure at 39.90 = its only Rm149.90.

    As for the ARC 170 fighter imperial version,it was selling for a shocking RM249.90~~!!! When the last CW version was RM199....

    That's what i cant understand....

    And Hasbro Malaysia always says their sales not doing well, with those kind of pricing sure the SW & CW Products are peg warmers....

    another sad reason why so many SW collectors are pulling out of the hobby...

  3. RM250 for the Imperial ARC 170 fighter !!!! wah lau wei...that's day light robbery !!!!! If they throw in a least two action figures then the RM250 price tag is worth it.

  4. Yeah two figures would make a little worth the price!

  12. I think what you said was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something to maybe grab a person's attention?
    I mean "Vehicles: V-Wing Starfighter & clone pilot" is kinda plain.
    You could look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you've got to say.
    In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
