    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.
