Pretty cool. It's an exclusive airline set, so we probably won't be able to get it Sad

The distinctive colour theme and the wing shape is really cool! I hope I find a way to get this!

Nice torso on the minifig too! The plane looks really good from that back angle as well, good set.

Reminds me a lot of the Adventurers planes that came with the Egyptian ones and the Congo or South America or whatever ones. Pretty cool though.

Very cool. Nice touch to have the set number printed on the tail. I love those angled wing plates! (Except that they're brown.) Is that a new piece?

What an awesome little plane! I hope LEGO makes more that are as good as this one.

Ha! I hadn't noticed that, very cool. Wink All in all, I really like this one because it actually has some "weight" and presence to it... Not just a crappy little 4-stud wide semblance of a plane. (The security van from 7033 is another good "beefy" vehicle.)

Those aren't "new" pieces. They're the same long plates that came with the MINI ISD. Just brown.

And the Snowspeeder.

That's a pretty sweet plane. I love the wings; much better than using the wing pieces like most Lego planes do. And they finally put a joystick in! About time they replaced those steering wheels... Are the 2x2 round tiles new emblems, or are they the old castle archery targets?

Look like the targets to me. But I thought the targets were white.

Well, you can get some of the airline promotional items without too much trouble, it's just a matter of how much you're willing to pay for them. That is a nifty little plane.

This plane looks real nice! This is one of those things they roll by on trolleys during the flight, along with the sunglasses and the perfume. If the KLM has it, I might just be able to get it (being Dutch myself). It really depends where I'll be going on holiday this year (and I have to say, KLM is overpriced). If I get the chance to buy one, I'll get some more, and see who is interested...

Wow fast reply Shocked ! Hold your horses though; like I said, it 1. depends on how I go on holiday (driving or flying) and 2. if I use KLM to get there! I did fly KLM last year though, so who knows (wish I flew more often).
But I wouldn't care about making profits on this if I did it, and I will keep you in mind, Morgan!

My horses are being held. Or something. Wink

You want to fly KLM this year, you want to fly KLM this year...

I know you said you weren't definitnely going, but I do appreciated the help if you do end up going this route. And of course, that you have a good vacation. Wink

Its to bad the box dosent say for airlines only or indicate that it is a promotional item in anyway. I have contacted someone from bricklink who is selling them, thats how i know this.

I'd be interested if I could get one for about half of what they're asking on Bricklink.

I have to say though, it looks a lot cooler from the back than from the front. I'm not crazy about the all terrain landing gear.
