Dammit. That's £19.99 I had and now I have a U-Wing and a bigger storage issue than I had before. I don't need it, not convinced I want it but for £20 how can I say no? Thanks Stu.

I got these from Argos for £25 and £15 and thought that was decent value, bargain!

Although the original price they came out at was outrageous. I don't usually bother buying anything new now and wait til it gets put on offer then snap it up at a decent price - my kid's going to be opening TFA and Clone Wars toys for years to come!

I've just had to buy another U-Wing to open one up. It looks too cool. Just ordered the Tie Advanced as well :D

Totally agree about 50 to 100 would be nice.

Thank you! Just ordered both :D

That was lucky, I was just looking at a U-Wing reduced from 59.99 to 34.99.

Yeah, I'll be sit for the AT-AT to go down to 50-60 before buying that. The large Black Series TIE is now under £60 so can see it happening.

Opened up the U -Wing. Although I'm not a massive fan of the ship itself I'm very impressed with the quality of the toy for £20. Above £30 and I'd be feeling less happy. At £60 I'd be throwing a hissy fit :lol:

Great nerf gun fun (and it packs a punch!) and nice action on the wings A solid feeling build and amazing value for money.

Oh man, am I glad I sold all mine before Argos stiffed over all the little people... clever business strategy really. Cut their losses on wholesale, sell what they have remaining, and make sure everyone else is stuck with their stock. But saying all that... I might have to pick myself one up at that price too :lol:
