Hey everyone,

I'm inventorying my ships, thinking about selling the collection of 259 ships (I'd like to keep them, but a lot fairly similar to mine just raked in $600+ on eBay - hard to say no to that kind of cash).

However, when I got to the Y-Wings, I ran into something I can't figure out. Two of the have green painting instead of the regular yellow. They say Y-Wing on the bottom, and have the same collector number as the regular (non-ace Y-Wing Starfighters).

Were these promos or something? Anyone know?

I believe they were either given out at cons or for prizes as part of the OP kits, can't remember which. They came with the same stat cards (like the promo figures for star wars minis) that's why the collector # is the same.

Correct, they were promo's. Everything the same, but with (slightly) different paint job. Very difficult to find.
