Studio Scale Red 5 X-Wing Prototype Photos

Our license ends on December 31, so we will only be allowed to ship to our customers items that we have in stock. After Dec. 31 we will no longer be able to manufacture any more product. We then enter what is know as the "sell off period"  This is 90 days.  So As of January 1, we will have 90 days to sell our existing stock. As for the X-Wing we are trying our very best to get this done before the end of the year!  But as most of you know, Studio Scales take a lot of work!!! Here are some pictures of where we are now.  Note that it is not painted and the panel lines have not been added yet. . .

PLEASE NOTE, these photos only illustrate where we are in the process, and in light of recent announcements, we can't say for sure we will be producing these (as much as we'd love to bring it to you).

For me, this is the ultimate of all things Star Wars. It just doesn't get any better when your name is Red Five and you hear that MR is making your X-Wing. Well that was in January. Now they tell me "We can't say for sure we will be producing these." with the December 31 deadline appraoching. And so the waiting begins for the ultimate Studio Scale, a Red 5 X-Wing w/working S-foils and complete w/engine lights.

that would be pretty cool if they made that...but it would be a super small production run due to lack of time

Seems that the X-Wing is going to be MR's last studio scale. :'(

But at least they're going out with a bang.


Lights, moving S-foils, what more could you want right?

Well, what I would really like to see is a removable R2-D2.
How awesome would that be, an MR mini R2.

What do you think? Is it possible?
