Hey look! There's that dark red R4 head.
When they replaced Obi-wan's red starfighter with the V-wing, I thought "wither the dark red R4 head?" Dark red is one of Lego's newer colors and one of my favorites, and check out how cool that head is (there he is on Obi-wan's port wing, there). Well, imagine my delight when I spotted the same piece on the V-wing, which is not only available in the Ultimate Space Battle set I'm never going to buy, but is also coming up as a (much cheaper) single set. With that plus the Clone Pilot, my favorite of the Sith Clone minifigs, the V-wing is a definite future purchase. See R4 up there? On the roof behind the cockpit, partially obscured behind those wings? Hiya!
