"Larger" Scale wings for TIE Fighter
« on: March 09, 2006, 03:48:52 PM »

Well, thanks to Levere, I finally got this rockin' vehicle. Now, I don't normally collect vehicles, but, man, I knew I had to have this baby!!

Being a LONG time 'Eyball' fan, this ship was exactly what I've been waiting for.

PROs (compared to the vintage, SAGA or OTC):

- The friggin' HUGE Scale wing panels!! These are excellent, right to scale. Looking at this fighter beside the original make the original look silly.

- The removal of the battery box for the sounds (which were pretty lame on the vintage fighter) in favour of the real back of the 'ball'.

- A pilot figure (nuff said) '96 POTF2 version, but, still cool.

Cons

-The only real problem is the wings are super heavy and they tend to 'sag' when the fighter is hung up. Not a biggy though cuz it's not super noticeable.

In summary, since 1978 the TIE Fighter hasn't been given its due. Too bad it's a Target Exclusive as this bad boy should've been distributed better.

I'm giving this vehicle a 9/10

good review, I saw a couple of these and think that they look great, I honestly never noticed that the wings were out of scale until hasbro announced they were releasing one with larger wings.

 I really wish these were available up in Canada. I will have to get one shipped. I love the new wings. They look great!

Although this ship rocks, man, it takes up a lot of real estate in my already shrinking Star Wars Room  :confused0024:
