Looks to be the same approx size as a gunship. I compared mine to a rattler as seen in the comparison pic above.
I will be picking up two of these: one for myself and my son as soon as I see these bad boys on the shelf. ;)
Still need to pick up the original one from the 80's sometime.

I'll pass, something tells me that Hasbro is teasing us by offering retailers cheaper and smaller versions of vehicles that fanboys would like. I'm sure that since they finally realized that the 3.75 " scale figures are were the money is at, they will give us bigger and better vehicles in the future....

I kind of like it. It looks like it needs a black wash to bring out some of the details and panel lines. I may pick this up.

Here's a good set of comparison pictures of WildBill from Resolute to the new figure.
My analysis shows it to be just a standard reapint and kitbash. It does not line up with the rest of the resolute figures such as Gung-ho (minus the ROC logo on his hat), Firefly (minus the black tac vest and Green Goggles which were not shown in the cartoon), Resolute Destro (unlreased as of yet but not as bulky and large as the cartoon showed him, especially the head), Unreleased Resolute Roadblock is pretty much dead on (not as bulky in the neack upper trapezius).
Wildbill has green and brown (just like his traditional figure) and a blueish grey hat in resolute. He is not shown in any flight gear such as he does in this figure (does not mean one day he might) but I am certain it was just a standard kitbash with Slipstrem upper/lower legs, Wild Bill's basic body+hat and Pilot Scarletts flight vest (nothing special). His glasses are aslo not the standard pilots glasses he wears in every figure since the 25th/ME came out. The only resemblance is in the mustache and hair which is standard Wildbill.
Make your on conclusions but I stress again it is not Resolute Wildbill, it is just another reapint to put him with a new helicopter which also did not appear in the cartoon (as of yet if ever).

Does anyone know if all three landing gear wheels roll, or just the front two or none at all like the Night Raven?

It seems to me that the Wild Bill head looks bigger. Is that so? I can't really tell.
Convention Tiger Sting (with or without Bazooka)
FSS NF Falcon - just need head and gear but will take whole figure if needed
Steeler range finder piece (can be accessory pack)
