With his black X-Wing getting blown up in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Poe Dameron is set to have a new starship for The Rise of Skywalker. Though we haven’t gotten any looks at the previews that have come out, a new toy image from Hasbro’s upcoming Vintage Collection gives us a gander at Poe’s orange X-Wing fighter.

While I thought black seemed like the more tactical color, I can’t wait to see how this orange and white X-Wing will look onscreen. If anything, Poe got a paint job that matched his astromech droid, BB-8; and I guess the pilot suits do come in orange as well. It would be funny if the color was chosen out of a fashion choice.
With the latest teaser showcasing some Imperial era Star Destroyers, I’m kind of hoping to see some more OT era ships in TROS as well. We know from a short clip that the B-Wings will be making a return, as well as the Tantive IV. We also know that the Y-Wing and A-Wing will make an appearance as well.
Personally, I’d love to see the ST era T-70 X-Wing flying alongside the OT’s T-65. Fingers crossed we have some older pilots from the original movies too. We already know that Lando Calrissian is making a return. Is it too much for Denis Lawson to reprise X-Wing pilot Wedge Antilles?
The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more as Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron’s journey continues. With the power and knowledge of generations behind them, the final battle commences.
