I've got to add that the X-wing that came with the Rebel Transport is significantly better quality than the ones that came in my core sets & X-wing pack.
On my older X-wings, basically none of the guns point the same direction - they are all over the place! Even on the one where they point the same direction, this direction is clearly to the right of where it should be (ie, not parallel to the ship).
With the new X-wing, the paint job is a clear improvement (more precise use of the wash) and the assembly is spot on - nothing is seems to be out of alignment.
The difference in the thickness of the primer between the old ships and new ones is huge. This probably also affected the sockets for mounting the lasers, etc.
So much detail is lost in the early runs of Wave 1 models - If you were to strip them down to the plastic and repaint, you'd find the models underneath to be exactly the same.
