I first saw this  in toys r us back in 2016, and instantly fell in love with it, the price point put me of at the time it was over £100, so I reluctantly walked on by, fast forward to now and a friend had one boxed he was getting rid of, best part £35.00, my wife bought it for me as a Christmas present
Heres a video review of the toy I found (the guy is a good reviewer and covers lots of toy lines)

I don't have it yet its sat wrapped waiting for me on Christmas day, but heres a pic I found online, the smaller tie pictured is the same scale as a vintage tie

I wish they would come out with an classic X wing in this scale, or a snowspeeder, that would be ace, but i'm glad to have this, now where am I going to put it?? lol!

Thanks mate, yeah its six inch scale, you can fit two troopers in the cockpit back to back like in the movie, very cool, and yes i'm going to need a bigger room or rooms, my youngest is 17 and I already have eyes on his larger bedroom, can't kick him out just yet though lol!

That is so awesome looking, and I thought Hasbro's 2010 AT-AT was big. I would really love a vintage looking Y-Wing in this scale as well.

If they’d have gone with the original design, I’d probably have one two. I was considering doing a custom for a while because I’d seen them very cheap, but they’ve changed a lot of parts on the wings etc that would be hard to pull back.

Either way, just the scape of the thing is impressive! Congratulations on picking up a very cool piece, Ian. It’s probably the biggest 6” scale vehicle that will ever come out.

Cheers Chris
Yeah its really a lot different than a standard tie, the rear of the cockpit especially and those cogs on the wings

Put it together and took a pic, bottle of pop to show scale
