Whatever happened to Red Learder's X-Wing?
« on: November 24, 2004, 02:55:20 PM »

I've been waiting to get one of those and decided to wait since all the local TRUs have quite a few that weren't moving.  Then all of a sudden they're gone?! (For a few months now)  Can't find one bloody one at all?  Does anyone know if there was a recall or or they didn't sell and were shipped back to Hasbro? Its weoird since they seem to keep toys that are quite a few years old (Godzilla, Small Soldiers, etc...).  If anyone spots one could you post?  Thanks!

I think they've actually sold.  There was quite a glut of ships on the market but once the DVDs were released the supply dried up fast.  All those Gold Leader X-Wings and Darth Vader TIEs flew off the shelfs.  Anyway, the last place I saw one was in a TRU store in Lansing, Michigan a couple weeks ago.  Not much help I know but I haven't seen one up here in ages.

I think Dark Jedi is right.  I think they've simply sold them all.  I haven't seen one at TRU for a couple of months.  Good luck!

Hmm... that's why the TRU shelve seems empty.

It's hard to believe that they've sold them all, I've noticed too that they've dissapeared all of the sudden, weird I would say, who knows what happened to them. Maybe they did sell after all 8)

It's not worth it...Luke's POTF2 Electronic X-Wing back during the late 90's was way much better...If you can find one with a decent price on eBay.

I think it's too much to think they sold out completly.
The Northside TRU in Edm. had at least 20 sitting up the top of the shelves not too long ago and I didn't see them bringing any down to sell, strange... :P
