    Tempted by the Gladiator, but the Retaliator is too much at $250. Also really really wanting those Hornet variants to land soon.

    Yeah, it is a big ship though (and its looks AWESOME!).

    If I was spending the big dollars, that is what I'd get.

    So, Gladiator obtained but passed on a Retaliator - I'll get one in-game. Hornet variants have been delayed a week :(

    EDIT: So, I mixed things up I the end. Melted down my Freelancer, 315p and 325a, replacing them it's a Retaliator. So, I now have:

    Constellation
    Retaliator
    Gladiator
    Hornet
    Avenger
    Cutlass
    350R
    M50
    Aurora LX
    Aurora LN

    The Freelancer and 300i variants were just duplicating functionality to be honest - I mean, why ever use a Freelancer when you have a Constellation?

    Honestly, not a fan.
    It just looks like it's fat.

    I thought so too at first, but this is mainly due to the landing gear. Once you go around the ship it looks fine. The ship is arched as well with the belly being the cargo bay, which in a way gives it a weird look if you are looking at the ship from pictures. It has a really nice, open cockpit, huge cargo bay where you could potentially have a boarding party, smuggle goods or do legitimate trade.

    All in all I am quite happy with it. Can't wait to fly it around a bit :D

    The visibility from the cockpit is second to none. When it closed over me I couldn't stop smiling. :D

    This is what I have. Its glorious, and I much prefer it to the 300i I previously had! The cockpit view is going to make it a beast of a dogfighter!

    I cashed in my 300i towards a Avenger, glad I did now, think it looks really nice.

    With this and my freelancer I'm probably good to go in the early game.

    Also, it has two huge drop tanks for fuel on the hull. I wonder if that means it'll be capable of super long range missions - it does say 'hunt your prey into the darkest corners of the galaxy' on the description.

    From what I understand, the fuel pod hard point can also take missile pods :D launch a bunch of these from a carrier and the enemy will have a bad time!

    Of course, if they're engaging you with Hornets, you're about to have a far, far worse time. ;)

    I still haven't checked what i bought, it wasn't much though. Also i'm not sure i can find/remember my login details :/ I really need to stop buying things after midnight? Anyone know if you can request your bank to block POS transactions between certain hours?

    I really like the look of that ship someone posted just up the page. how much does one of those cost?

    Is there an Imperial Courier?

    Yeah, I don't think I'll be taking on any carriers anytime soon!

    Vulnerable lone Constellations though, will make quite a prize.

    Just go to login and click the link to recover your details.

    It depends on whether you want a package or the ship only. Login and check, as your price will be based on when you originally backed.

    No. This isn't Star Wars. New IP only.

    Actually the Imperial Courier would be my preferred ship from Frontier ;) Sadly it's not expected in Elite: Dangerous, at least not in the initial release :(

    I'll try to recover my details when i get home, just need to remember.

    edit: i remembered. I have an RSI Aurora MR apparently, then a bunch of random looking stuff dating back to May.
