B-WING FIGHTER VEHICLE Star Wars 2011 Kmart Exclusive

The Kmart exclusive Vintage Collection B-Wing Fighter Vehicle is a repaint of the 2008 Toys R Us Exclusive The Legacy Collection Dagger Squadron B-Wing Fighter. Evolved from the mold of the 1984 B-Wing Fighter, sans the battle sounds, the Vintage Collection B-Wing Fighter began appearing on store shelves in July of 2011. In August of 2012, nearly a year after its debut, the B-Wing was available—in limited supply—at discount retailers T.J. Maxx and Marshalls.

While the Vintage Collection B-Wing's paint applications resemble those on the 2001 Target exclusive Power of the Jedi B-Wing Fighter, the weathering is more subdued and pad printing replaces the decals used on its predecessor. Featuring the re-tooled cockpit and swappable wing mounted cannons introduced with the Dagger Squadron B-Wing Fighter, the Vintage Collection B-Wing retains the gyroscopic cockpit, retractable landing gear and exhaust nacelle activated wing deployment feature included with every release of the vehicle to date. This release of the B-Wing does not include a figure, however, the single-carded B-Wing Pilot (Keyan Farlander) figure was available in The Vintage Collection as a compliment the vehicle.
