  • Comments: The TIE Fighter is the standard vessel of the Imperial fleet and is equipped with twin ion engines, microparticle accelerators, and hexagonal solar panels that provide impressive speed and maneuverability. However, they have no shielding or secondary systems to accommodate the large power generators, leaving their pilots with little in the way of auxiliary support during combat. TIE Fighters are organized into wings and sent out in large swarms to overwhelm with numbers as well as firepower provided by two forward-mounted laser cannons.





    Points of Interest:
  • This version of the TIE Fighter is a retool of the SAGA version with a paint deco similar to the Vintage version. Also, this time around, the canopy has been changed to a single hatch with a locking side.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
