I wonder how the stickers on this rendition of the Sopwith Camel will hold up? I know on my model they curled around the edges, cracked after a short period of time and then ultimately fell apart. They didn't seem to be of the same material as any other stickers I can recall getting in a set.

the stickers were terrible. same thing happened to mine and once you got those stickers on your skin they were hard to get off. what kind of sticker stops sticking to plastic, cracks into tiny shards, and then sticks to your skin like a parasite? sheesh. sopwith camel, red baron, silver champion, and countless others, all with crappy stickers.

i hope the ones in use today fare better in the long run.

Ugh, those stickers, don't remind me. Every single time I touch or move the Red Baron, the Sopwith Camel, or the first Republic Gunship, I end up with those flecks on my fingertips. They're peeling and cracking so bad right now all I can do is not touch them.

I'm a bit baffled by this sticker talk. Does environment play a big role? I ask because I have never had the slightest problem with stickers peeling or cracking on any of my LEGO sets. Am I just insanely lucky, or does the climate make some kind of radical difference?

I've had stickers peeling and wilting back up, but that could have been from humidity/living in Hawaii.

Mine have been kept in a limited sun, cool, low humidity environment. To reiterate, the only sets I have that show peeling and cracking stickers are the Red Baron, Sopwith Camel, and Republic Gunship (7163). These sets have been displayed next to or in the same room as other sets from the same time frame and with plenty of stickers (one thing I noticed about these three sets: their sticker sheets were larger than most typical sticker sheets). As far as I can tell, the material used for these particular stickers is noticeably different than that in other sets. I haven't had any other problems at all except very recently with the new Naboo Starfighter, but this is a different issue (stickers not sticking very well).

To answer Onions' post earlier: no, no prices. I posted cut & pasted verbatim what their post was, in the first post of this thread.

I'm excited about the b-wing as well. definitely a cool looking ship. the sopwith camel should be interesting as well. i'm glad lego is getting into war models :P

I've always felt the 6208 B-Wing is as close to minifig scale as you'd ever want - if you do the maths based on canon sizes it seems about right. Its likely the UCS model is going to be the same as the existing X-Wing/Snowspeeder/Y-Wing scale of model.

Personally I wish TLG would just pick a scale and build all the models along those lines - the minifig scale UCS Falcon and Shuttle are amazing together.

The B-Wing has always been one of my favorite Star Wars ships, probably because of it's oddness.
I hope they do it justice.

I'm another one who has never had any problems with their first gunship stickers. Even though, lots of stickers on other (mainly non-Lego) toys have dried up and started to peel over the years so clearly I don't live in perfect environmental conditions either.
