Yeah, I'm very dissapointed at the picture of the V-Wing. Something in the back of my head knew it would be about the V-Wing which made me very excitied. I would've rather waited until the end of the week to see an actual pic but I guess I'll be checking starwars.com instead tomorrow morning. Though I can already see that the V-Wing may be a dissapointment in itself but maybe that's just the pic.

Silly people! It's obviously a version of the V-Wing that has a hyperdrive!! The photographers at the Brick Inquirerer obviously took that picture as it was entering Hyperspeed!!

Nice to see you take a page from Tim's book Ace. Very Happy

Reading all the posts from the impatient little punks is as exciting as finally seeing the real pics.

I can't believe LEGO finally gave FBTB an exclusive!

Can't wait to see more and more.

This is going to be some great buzz for the site.

Way to go, Ace.

Well if you think about it that way, this is great.
If Ace would of posted 1 clear picture of the V-wing, we would have a spike in visitors for a day or two, then go back to our normal volume of members/guests visiting FBTB.

But by putting up several teasers, followed by a clear picture, we should get a bunch of publicity and more visitors this way.

PS:this is an FBTB exclusive, spent 15 mins googling different combos of "V-wing", "star wars", "lego", and "pictures", and nothing turned up Wink

Ah, a return of the teaser pics Smile. Just like in the good old times at FBTB (yes, those times were good).

I guess I'll now sit back and enjoy a moment of nostalgia. While checking the front page more often of course.

And naturally the question arises if it is absolutely necessary to fly into a passion just because you'll see the first pictures of a set about to come out in more than four months not today but a few days later...

I don't like teasers at all (and especially when it concerns AFOLS presenting a MOC); or as Yoda would say had he known the Internet: 'post, or post not, there are no teasers'

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished set. Hopefully "more and more" means all of the sets, and not just pictures of the V-Wing.

My favorite touch is the red trim. I also love the canopy mechanism: that's just brilliant. I'm not really sure about the landing gear. It works, but it looks a little... flimsy? The minifig will look nice with the rest of my fleet.

Overall, a nice little ship.

Very Happy

Bernard, Dennis, you guys are killing me. Very Happy

Patience, my friends. Be happy that "the little LEGO Star Wars site that could" finally has exclusives again.

There's a new pic up on the front page, but you'll need to refresh by hitting 'Alt+F4' in order to see it.
