Extremely disappointing. The E-wing looks absolutely horrible. They went with the god-awful WEG version. While I realize that it's reasonably close to the original Dark Empire version (which itself was a lousy design), they really, really should have used Brand's version from the Fate of the Galaxy game. (Several of Ansel Hsiao's Star Destroyers have been officially adopted as canon, and he's just a fan that got tapped to work on an official book, so it's not a stretch). Same thing for the Defender. It looks like an Interceptor with a 3rd wing, and that's not what a Defender is. Why do you think the Phantom has that gigantic rear end? They should have used Ansel's Defender. And speaking of the huge rear end, the Phantom looks to be too small. It's a two-seater.
The Headhunter looks fine (considering they're continuing the misappropriation of the design rather than making it how it's actually described), but I wasn't going to get any of those anyway.
Not only have I liked every other model that they've done, but I have multiple copies of everything (except the Hawk, which I'll pick up when I get Imperial Aces). But this? Uggh.
Look, I'm super happy with their choices for this wave. I'm just disappointed in the execution. For me this wave is a complete failure and I won't purchase a single thing in it.
