I just picked up the 1/50 Revell Level 2 kit of Poe Dameron's X-wing at Hobby Lobby. Was $39.99, but after using a 40% off coupon it came to $22 total.

I'm going to go back and pick up the regular T-70 later this week with another coupon

Kind of bummed there is no pilot figure, but otherwise it looks pretty nice. Now I have to figure out how to make a pilot for it
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Nice score. A 1/48 pilot would probably work just fine methinks...

I just paid my Bandai TFA Trooper, BB-8 + First Order TIE Fighter order :P :P I'll have plenty to pick from for this group build! Here's what I'm thinking:

1) Revell Ren's Shuttle, lit + in-flight mode
2) Revell Special Forces TIE (big one) repainted to classic scheme, lit
3) BB-8 quick build
4) Trooper duo
5) FO TIEs over sand

And you're going to do all of that before the end of March? Riiiiiiiiiiight! :roll:
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!

Starting with a single trooper :) Maybe I'll add another shortly...they're super quick and fun!

AAAAAAND I was thinking we could extend the date to the Blu-Ray release date. :)

I've got no problem extending the date. I just started my Bandai 1/72 T-70 a few days ago

I still have Revell's level 2 of Poe's X-wing to get to
