  1. What wait? I demand a recount, yeah I'm late to respond, but the B-Wing is definitely a winner, NOT a loser.
    Why? Well, is story terms it's been 30 years since we last saw the X-Wing, in The Force Awakens it has evolved slightly to become a split wing s-foils version, the TIE Fighter also saw an update into a dual cockpit vessel .... and so did the B-Wing.
    Although not quite as recognizable as the other two fighters, an evolution of the B-Wing was used as Princess Leia's Shuttle. Admitedly it was difficult to spot form what you see in the film, but looking at the LEGO toy, you can totally see the inspiration:

    Internet ALWAYS tells the truth, here is the Wookipedia entry that gives a little more to the background:

    So, Stephen, you TOTALLY have to get the LEGO version now :)

    1. Ha! I thought there was something familiar about that thing. Actually, I really dug all of the "Resistance" designs from the new film quite a bit. I love the evolved X-Wing in particular. Here's to hoping that the same treatment is given to the B-Wing, A-Wing, and Y-Wing as fighters over the next few films. :^)
