I agree there are some inaccuracies, but there are some aspects of that new Y-wing that are improved over 7568
(which was a great model, btw). Some things are not as nice, but it's different enough to be enticing, especially with the new figs. Medal Ceremony Leia will be a great addition for those of us with medallion'd Luke and Han.
I pretty much echo all o' that. I do think the cockpit/forward fuselage area needs some work though. 7658 wasn't perfect, but I don't think I can call this an improvement.
Given that we've gone from 0 to 3 appropriately shaped R5 units in a single year, an oversight long in need of correction, I'm hesitant to complain...and I'll take Leia, but still
no love for Tiree? Five Y-Wing releases (if you count 7150/7152/7262 as separate) in system scale and (as Blacknight pointed out) it's still like Gold Leader was the only Y-Wing pilot at Yavin.

I don't know...I think the level of greebling is about the same...in fact, this new one lifts some of the techniques directly from 7658. I definitely prefer the top part of the aft fuselage in the older set though.
