Bits, I have dreams and you're crushing them.

But, I'm going to reserve things until the May WD.

At last years gamesday this question was put to a couple of the design team and the answer was a clear no, I'm sure it was mentioned on here.
Plus it does look exactly like the FW one.

It's hardly definitive but I doubt we'll see a plastic thunderhawk just yet

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Were on a design team and ask a question about a specific product before its release date, I would say 'no' as well.

Well for looking exactly the same the top cannon doesn't seem to be on the one they sell. Proportions at a glance also seem slightly off somehow. Not that I could see any real point in a plastic kit. Would be cheaper, but the game really never seemed designed to handle something like that being playable real well. Mechwarrior had a similar issue when they made a Dropship for that. It had stats. Just didn't really fit in otherwise.

If it is a plastic Thawk, I'll buy at least 2 even if they are really weak in game for their cost as they stand

I think its time for GW to do another bunch of apocalypse related stuff, maybe a rerelease/ rules clarification for 6th ed. Lets be honest we never thought we'd see a plastic baneblade or ever see a stompa

I have held off buying a flyer so far, partly because there's no slot for them in the SW codex, partly because they just seem too damn expensive. However, if there's a plastic thunderhawk, I will be jumping on that like fleas on a stray dog.

That picture could simply mean that the battle report next month is just an all flyer affair though. Which is the most likely option I think.

Well it certainly has potential.... the price tag on the other hand.... not looking forward to that what so ever.
