As has become somewhat of a custom, a newly released video promoting the Force for Change Unicef charity, revealed something completely nerd-tastic from Star Wars: Episode VII.
A TOTALLY AWESOME NEW X-WING!
For those of you pushing up your glasses in preparation to supply me with a vile hate-spewed and berating argument about how this is a Z-95 Headhunter, and in fact not an X-Wing because of stuff about the S-Foils, I smugly give you this:
@CDCanimation It is in fact an Episode VII X-wing, not a Z-95.

Actually I thought it was a Z-95 as well, but the official tweet sets that theory to rest. Apart from the X-Wing looking totally badass, with every one of these videos showing off practical effects and little portions from the film, it really seems as if J.J. Abrams and the crew are having a lot of fun making this movie, which sets my mind even more at ease.
Let us know what you think of the newly designed space fighter? Would you sign up for the new Red Squadron?
Slowly and randomly releasing new details from this film is proving to be a great strategy at keeping me super-hyped and waiting on the edge of my seat for more.
