    Comments: It must have been a hard life for the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot. Not only did the dude have to live without a name (or face for that matter) of his own, he had to haul butt in a fast moving ball with two huge targets mounted on its sides and try making it through a battle without the luxury of shields of any kind. On a plus note, he did get to blow up defending a giant space orb of evil that, by design, tends to be built specifically to be inevitably destroyed by upstart rebels...

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot has no major variations.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
