Darth Vader's TIE Fighter
Only one die-cast ship was on display at Toy Fair, but it's one that fans have been asking for since Code 3 started creating their die-cast vehicles line. This particular version is the Signature Series, which will be signed by James Earl Jones (the voice of Darth Vader, for those that don't know) and will be limited to 500 pieces. The ship's left wing also suffers from battle damage, which is unique to this edition. Also unique to this release is the sculpted base, a first for Code 3, which simulates the surface of the Death Star.

Like the other vehicles in Code 3's line, this vehicle also includes a removable panel on the back and a removable canopy allowing you to see inside the cockpit, revealing a small non-removable Darth Vader figure inside.

Legendary Casts
Code 3's popular line of bas relief movie poster recreations were also on display, featuring posters from the Star Wars line, and also Lord of the Rings, Army of Darkness, Scarface, Animal House, Snow White, and Backdraft.. Of course, the question fans want to know...will the rest of the Star Wars films get the Legandary Casts treatment, specifically The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones? The answer is yes, there will be more Star Wars posters in the future! While none were on display, we were able to see production photos and they look great. They hope to have prototypes ready to show in time for Comic-Con this summer. There's also a special edition poster planned for this year as well, but you'll just have to wait for the announcement on that one....trust me, it's worth the wait.

We were also able to see prototypes of another line of Legendary Casts-type sculpts, based on comic book covers. The ones we saw are REALLY nice, although being a big comic fanboy, I had to point out a painting error in a certain mutant costume. So when you eventually buy this piece, you can thank me. :)
