So I am looking at Rogue One and I really want to add a U-Wing dropship for my Imperial Assault team.  Unfortunately the model from Revell is only 1/100 (excellent for 15mm).  So I am thinking about getting the Haro toy and modifying it.  However it is 22 inches long.  Now scale wise that seems perfect, but putting it down on a table seems a little big.  Any thoughts?  Is there any rumors of larger models being releases (like 1/72?)

I've not seen anything, but I agree that modding the Hasbro toy is probably going to give you a model that looks waaay to big.

Sorry.

You want big?

I've got a Hasbro Millennium Falcon toy which is 1/48. A scale roughly compatible with the WoC bendies I have.

It's flippin' huge! It easily takes up most of a 4x4 table, so it's for larger and interior (when I get to it Roll Eyes  ) skirmishes only.

That U-wing, judging by the movie trailers, is also pretty large, so when you're a stickler for scale, I guess you should go with the toy...

I think I will end up going with the Toy.  I am hoping Bandai will make a 1/72 U Wing since the are doing the new tie in that scale as well.  1/72 would put it around 15 inches which is table managable.

Anyone have a scale shot photo, comparing the Hasbro U-wing toy, with a 28 or 32 mm miniature?

This may be of interest, although it's a paper model - link. It's the princely sum of 0.00 (not sure what that is in $ Grin)

The 28mm model looks a beast from the picture.

Did some investigating. No pics were found with a 28mm, but I think I have the answer you're looking for. Read on...

Here's the action Hasbro Action figure version in a fan shot with 3.75" fig.
From: http://www.rebelscum.com/Hasbro-Star-Wars/rebel-u-wing-fighter-rogue-one-star-wars-hasbro/default.asp

I thought it looked too big, but read on...


On the other hand is the Revel kit from...
http://www.rebelscale.com/models/build-logs/revell-u-wing-review-build/
...next to what the reviewer calls:
 similarly-scaled vehicles, the Titanium V-wing (1/101) and A-wing (1/97). Also see the size of the figure to the A-wing.
The reviewer says the Revel kit it's listed as 1/100 and is 28cm long.

Assuming the Revel kit is accurate at 28cm in 1/100 scale, then a U-wing in 28mm (1/56) it should be about 50cm long.  

Now then, this site.
https://futureofstarwars.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/review-rebel-u-wing-fighter/
Says that the Hasbro toy is 21 inches. Looks like I have to retract my earlier comment that it will be much too big. Looks like it might be a smidge too long but since most 28mm figs are a big bigger than 1/56 it might actually be perfect.  It's still going to be a huge beast on the tabletop, but maybe shortening the landing gear a bit and converting some 28mm appropriate hatches and interior could make it look just right.

I will probably pick a Uwing up and start playing with it.  I will post photos if I do.  It will be interesting to determine a flight base for it, but the use thunder hawks in 40k.

The Hasbro U Wing is now down to 20 at Argos:

http://www.argos.co.uk/product/5804658

I'm curious if the Nerf herders shooters are unobtrusive, and how easy it'd be to make the wings removable for storage, did anyone get it?

My son has it.  The shooter is very unobtrusive. If pushes right up into the fuselage.  As for the wings, I'm haven't tried taking them apart, but they come separate, so they should be able to be made removeable.

Here's a review that shows the parts.

I had no idea it came unassembled, thanks! That also raises the possibility of using the hull for a more generic vehicle... Cockpit interior aside, do you think it works for 28mm? Thanks again!
