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

Seems to be taking the P rather than writing a subjective review

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.


REBEL: 5 X-Wing  •  3 Y-Wing  •  2 A-Wing  •  3 YT-1300  •  4 B-Wing  •  1 HWK-290  •  7 Z-95 Headhunter  •  2 E-Wing

IMPERIAL: 8 TIE Fighter  •  2 TIE Advanced X1  •  5 TIE Interceptor  • 3 Firespray 31  •  6 TIE Bomber  •  2 Lambda Class Shuttle  •  2 TIE Phantom  •  2 TIE Defender

FIRST PLACE:  2012 Kessel Run (Amazing Discoveries, Tucson AZ); 2013 Regional (Amazing Discoveries, Tucson AZ); 2013 Regional (Imperial Outpost, Glendale AZ); 2014 Store Championship (Desert Sky Games, Gilbert AZ); 2014 Assault on Imdaar Alpha (Game Depot, Tempe AZ)

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.
