Hmm.  This is one which has the L-shaped lever/locking mechanism.  (I have one of these, but keep it boxed so I'm assuming it's the same mechanism all the larger scale X-wings have.  Sometimes folks don't realize they need to push the lever down AND to the right (like if you were writing the letter "L") for the wings to lock in place.  Unless the one you bought happens to be defective, the wings should get locked in place fairly tight.  If not, I recommend, as I'm sure Hasbro will, you should exchange it.  Hasbro tends to have a pretty good exchange policy on defective products.

Ok guys, we have one more question round to send in and as late as the answers are for our last round I am not sure if they will have another round of this. We will just have to wait and see. I aim to send ours in a day early so Thursday morning they will go. Get your burning question in!

Well we finally get our answers (Pat is not gonna like this one)!

Can someone at Hasbro please explain why the CW Clones all seem to have parts that have gone green (its like the same colour green thats on the torso's of the Anti Hailfire squad)?  At first it was a few Matchstick helmets  now i've stopped buying clones because its impossible to find a clone thats actually all white (where he should be). I went into Sainsbury and found the ambush 2 packs but had to pass as Rys's arms were green and so was Thires thighs and feet!   Have you changed plastics ? Because if you have i suggest you change back , clones are being left on the shelf because they are nearly all badly discoloured.

This is the first we have heard of this issue; we have not seen it in any of our production samples.  We'll look into it; if you could provide pics of this green it would be a big help.  While we check and guarantee production samples of everything that goes into production, sometimes things change due to material availability, changing deco masks, and the like.  Occasionally, we hear of things first from our consumers letting us know that something might be off.

For a long time, fans have asked for the AT-TE, Twin Pod Cloud Car, and Rebel Troop Transport.  For just as long, the team at Hasbro has said no way to all three of these.  Now, the AT-TE was finally made because it was seen prominently in The Clone Wars movie and cartoons.  The team from Hasbro admitted recently at this year's San Diego Comic Con that the Twin Pod Cloud Car was nixed because the senior member of the group had forbid it, but was no longer there, and now we have the Cloud Car.  So, that brings us to the Rebel Troop Transport?  Does this great item have any shot at seeing life again as a new toy?  I do believe that retail sales have shown that larger scale ships have been selling well, and the playability of this was large in the Vintage days, so I'm certain that the team from Hasbro can make the new version every bit as playable.  And, in anticipation of the answer that there just isn't enough demand for such an item, what would need to be done to prove that there IS such a demand?

Actually, the playability of the Rebel Troop Transport, in our opinion was almost nil, which is the third strike against it.  The first is the lack of interest/demand among kids, and the second is the very uninspiring look of the vehicle.  This is a triple whammy for a vehicle candidate. It was recent entertainment support that helped the AT-TE make it to reality; for those kinds of huge investments (for both us and fans) we need the vehicles to be either completely iconic (Millennium Falcon, AT-AT, Slave 1) or have recent entertainment support (AT-TE, Turbo Tank, Slave 1).
