Some guy posted a mediocre review of Fantasy Flight's CR-90 Blockade Runner.

 

I'd like to know how he got his hands on one before we did.

 

Here's a link to the review. :D

I agree with the wise gentlefolk above: it's a hoax and a very bad one at that!

Or rather: "This is not the review we're looking for..."

Like most product reviews on Amazon, you have to be able to tell the difference between a crappy product and a crappy reviewer.

Wow, I actually got a good chuckle out of it, so I wanted to share.

 

I appologize if people found it stupid or annoying. There are a lot of funny reviews on the Amazon website. I think that's what this guy was going for.

 

And let me say for the record: I didn't write it, I just stumbled onto it while clicking through the site.

Greetings X-Wing community!

 

Some people really need to get out more. Clearly a hoax considering this is the current status of the Tantive IV: 

 

"Currently unavailable. 

We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

 

What a dummy.


3720 to 1...

...odds of me winning a game of X-Wing  :P

I almost wonder if this person created the item page to write the review.  Amazon doesn't allow reviews of unreleased products. See the rebel transport, can't review it until 4/29 which is their stated release date.

I agree with the OP. It was funny, and obviously a tounge in cheek bit. It seems like the internet is always crowded with humorless people determined to be upset about everything.

Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed it.

Mildly amusing, but I don't think he should give up his day job.
