The new U-Wing fighter has been uncovered by the team at From 4-LOM to Zuckuss.com.  Click below to take a look at a great vehicle ruined by Hasbro's desire to cross promote their brands.  Do you think Nerf darts are ridiculous in vehicles?  Sound off in the forums and help us Make Collecting Great Again!

There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

I could do without the nerd darts firing from this line of ships, but I'll still buy one.  I wonder how many figures can sit in it?

U-Wing? I am old enough to remember the old Buck Rogers in the 25th Century & that ship looks a lot like it??
Buck Rogers was horrible... Hawkman wore a helmet with feathers glued to it...ha ha ha   Amazing seeing how bad the old Sci-fi was...

That's pretty much what everyone said when they saw it.  I'm wondering where all these were during the trilogy?  I understand they want to expand the universe officially making things like Shadow Troopers canon, but maybe an earlier version or prototype of the A, X or B-Wing would have been a better way to go?
