i'd get this too if there were some real clone pilot figures to go with it... and for that price it should fly itself around my toy room and make bombing runs like i used to dream my toys could do.... gosh!

Yeah, that really stings. Maybe this thing will retail for around $45, that seems more appropriate.

Their calling this part of their "new" medium line, so that must be the reason for the high price, the costing for a "new" medium line! :wink:
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Well, I finally saw the CW episodes where Grievous has that gigantic ship and the Republic attacks it with Y-Wings. I have to admit they look pretty damn sweet.

I *might* cave in and buy one of these, but it will be a game time decision. The price for it just seems ridiculous still.

So, it looks like retail on this is going to be about $50, and that the $75 price we've seen online is just what some e-tailers are going to be charging.

With that assumption in mind, does that change anyone's minds on getting this? Yes? No?

$50 puts me on the fence, as opposed to passing on it. With the Juggernaut coming around the same time, I think my money will be stretched thin enough as it is. Already passing on the Arc fighter even though it looks great. Also been passing on the Gunships for a while. Even with the Crumb Bomber coming up with new features, these vehicle prices are getting ridiculous.

THen there's the Republic Tank for $20 with is a sweet, oft-requested vehicle with a good price point!

Eghh.... I'm so torn. I still have yet to get a vehicle and this is one I kinda dig. Have been wanting a Jedi Starfighter too. But $50 is still a bit much!

Ok, here's my thoughts... NOPE! At least not right now. There's too much other expensive stuff coming out this year, such as the Turbo Tank. And the armored tank too. Not to mention the Separatists are getting their share of some new stuff as well.

+1

THis will be one of those "Must be Perfect" buys for this one.


Like the Legacy B-WIng, I just gazed at it and went "WOW" and it came home with me.

"Official" Hasbro Press Release for the Clone Wars Y-Wing Bomber

Y-WING BOMBER – Available: 8/14/09; SRP: $59.99
Armed with cannons, long-range missiles, torpedoes and bombs, the Y-wing bomber is one of the Republic’s primary combat vessels. Clone troopers and Jedi both pilot this vessel on assault and reconnaissance missions. A gunner sitting in the bubble-domed turret can blast attacking ships approaching from behind, while the pilot can fire forward-mounted cannons and torpedoes at enemy vessels up ahead. Y-wing bombers see action from the first days of the Clone Wars and help destroy the deadly new Separatist vessel Malevolence.

Blast into hyperdrive with this Republic combat vehicle replica! Take on enemy forces armed with firing proton torpedo launcher, hidden long-range missile launcher and droppable proton bomb accessories. Figures (sold separately) fit inside the opening canopy and turret. Fit a droid figure (sold separately) into the droid socket and keep your craft running smoothly with removable engines and fold-down landing gear. Itís one awesome vehicle to add to your collection!

Includes unassembled vehicle body, 2 projectile accessories, 2 proton torpedo accessories, labels and instructions.

I have to admit that when I see this in stores, I will pick up the box and stare at it. But ultimately, I will set it down and slowly walk away.
