Sounds good to me Craig - and good to see that old post again. I've said this before but it's a real shame that anything coming out of Billy Boy Rogers has to be taken with a pinch of salt. But in this instance I can't see why he'd lie.

I have an interesting find. I have a fully functional electronic version, grey xwing with battle damage stickers, black engine inlets, black landing gear, black cannons, tinted cockpit window, that is stamped 1978. Thats right gents... its belly is grey and stamped 1978 and clearly aged to the era.

Has any one ever heard of a grey 1978 stamped belly on what has to be a 1981 version Kenner Xwing with battle damage, full electronics, and black landing gear, engine inlets, and cannons. If this said 1981 it would make better sense to me. But its definately stamped 1978. Did some one just make a 1981 ESB full electronic version using a 1978 mold?

Maybe, some one took a Euro/Fr 1978 belly that was grey, and substituted it into a 1981 everything else. :idea:

Nice X-Wing - it’s the US grey issue one that the Palitoy grey is based on.

The copyright info is the same for any issue x wing hence 1978 - the date the first one was released

Same goes for the figures
