Bandai’s new 1/72 scale Y-Wing model is a thing of beauty.
The detail on it is incredible, but I’m digging the accessories especially. The laser blasts are cool, the Death Star surface tile is a neat touch, and I love how it includes multiple pilot designs, depending on whether you want to rock a New Hope or Return of the Jedi look.
If you’re freaking out that it’s a “model kit”, it’s not a glue + decals kind of model. This one comes pre-painted, and will require minimal assembly (no glue needed).
Best part? Because this is a model, and not a Hot Toys figure, it only costs around $30.
UPDATE - Folks who have bought some of Bandai’s other recent Star Wars model kits tell me that despite the model claiming to be “pre-painted”, it won’t look like these photos; instead, only the main markings and colour changes will be done, with the rest needing to be painted by the owner, meaning it’ll look more like this:
