There's no thread for it yet but the battle damaged Tie Striker is out in Canada now.

The battle damage is basically burn marks (black paint apps). The pilot's helmet has silver markings, kinda like OXIXO does.

I have pics, but they aren't mine so I can't post it. I don't know if I'm allowed to link another site.

Also, it comes with 5 Nerf darts instead of only 2 so your battle damaged Tie Striker can have all the Nerf holders filled and one in the chamber. Hmm...no wonder it's battle damaged, he hasn't even gotten off a shot yet.

So now there's 2 pilots I'm going to have to track down loose on eBay. I'm just out of room for these vehicles.

I *might* try and track the figures down. Honestly have no desire at all for either version of this thing.

Saw this locally. On sale for 34.99 w/ reg release. Had 10$ in rewards and being an imperial ship, I figured why the heck not.

My apologies, but what is "OXIXO"?

Lt. Oxixo. Was a Tie Pilot that was released. I didn't know how to describe it but I was mentioning him to say he has personalized markings just like Lt. Oxixo did. I think that was his name. He was in a TRU pilot pack a while back.

I like the look of the ship but when I think of battle damage I think back to the classic Kenner days where they had decals to put on the wings of the TIE's that made them look like pieces of solar panels where blown off/destroyed. to me a few blaster scoring marks does not constitute battle damage. I want to see blaster holes in the ships, exposed wiring, cracked viewscreens and canopies etc.

Yeah, that would be cool, but I think the idea is for them to be damaged but still technically flyable. :)

Ships can still fly with crushed wings and holes etc. Look at Vader's fighter in ANH. The solar panel was destroyed yet he still was able to fly away from Yavin

But that was Vader, he may have used the force to Assist him somehow. You know, like how Yoda raises an X-Wing.

Any sign of this thing showing up anywhere else? Still none in stock at the Boston area TRU stores.

Grabbed this today. Got the20% off and had a $5 reward certificate so total was $28. About as much as this is worth. Those extra nerf darts...sarcastic icing on the cake...

It didn't automatically come off when he rang it in so I said that there was a sale going on. Entered the discount without issue.

I saw it in a store, in Ventura, ca , didn't pop on it, but I like the damaged version compared to the normal one.

If there is anyone willing to part with the figure from this set (tie pilot with striped helmet), PM me. May be able to work something out.
