This is a screenshot from a video on youtube showing the F.O. TIE box.Would have preferred the other First Order TIE w/electronics. Anyways, I hope that's not an old stock photo. The warped wing isn't promising.
That is what I'm waiting on. Been checking the local stores and they've yet to put out anything for TLJ. I really hope they fixed the wingsLooks like this set is now available on Walmart.com with store Pickup as an option for anyone interested. I was sort of interested in grabbing one, but was hoping someone else would review it first so I could see if the quality is better this time around.
You and me both, I hope maybe they release it between now and episode 9.I wish Hasbro would release the regular First Order TIE Fighter as well as this Special Forces one.
That was the only good thing about the TFA TRU release of this was getting the Special Forces TIE Pilot. I'm still holding out hope that Hasbro will eventually release a SA FO TIE Pilot in the TVC line.I'm a bit miffed that this is NOT a S/F Tie pilot. To me, that's like General Veers and an AT-AT driver trading places.
That, is a shame.Still trying to check it all out but the TIE still has the same warped/wobbly wings.
I honestly think quality control is not even on the agenda at Hasbro anymore. Hell, it hasn't been for some time. I guess people can call Hasbro customer service and try to get straight, not warped wings. I did this for Poe's Black Leader X-Wing to replace the four warped cannons and they sent me four perfectly straight ones which was a relief. But I mean, this shouldn't even be something you have to do, considering how much these toys cost. Especially with the out of the box quality and how smaller they are compared to what was released just five years ago.That, is a shame.
Unfortunately it's not that surprising, and guarantees I will not be purchasing it. All I want is a TIE with straight wings. Why is this, all of a sudden, too difficult for Hasbro to do?
I'm beyond disappointed with the condition of the wings and loose spring feature... and it's a cool design and toy and the fact that we finally have the classic TIE Fighter screaming sounds and laser cannons make it that much more bittersweet... I think I would have preferred if Hasbro just worked on the strength of the plastic for the wings instead of rushing to get this out with the new Forcelink techWowzers, that is bad. Like King_Goji said, all of the sudden making plastic toys out of rigid plastic has become a great difficulty for them.
