all i know is that I want a few of these...perhaps 4-5 depending on price. I'd love to have one for the Inquistor, and perhaps the other 3-4 can be for either Royal Guards or Stormtroopers (if I ever find them at retail)
I think they used an old fan made "Republic" TIE Fighter as a base for it. It was a new ship mod made for the PC game X-Wing Alliance over 10 years ago. The old RPG books use to mention that the Republic first designed and built the TIE and it was often called the Republic T.I.E. Fighter. Darksaber, one of the finest modelers for XWA, made one based on the wings from Maul's ship. That was probably back around 2001. Don't know if I can post a link, but just look up Republic TIE Fighter in an image search. It'll be the first picture that comes up. Sadly there aren't that many pictures of it out there anymore, and even his old site seems to be gone.Its just a scaled down vader's Tie with Maul's Infiltrator wings attached. Probably the art team was playing around with kenner/hasbro vehicles and came up with it.
according to display, the vehicles will be mass released w/o figure at $24.99 (USA$) then later at target as excl that incl. respective figure..no price approx given for target excl version thoughGood to know the Inquisitor will be included anyway. A possible purchase, depending on how much I like the show. I certainly like both designs.
That was common to the Hasbro released Jedi Starfighters, both AOTC and ROTS fighters had the wings with the solar panels. Hasbro I believe came up with this and the movie team liked it so much they incorporated it into the new Jedi Starfighter and the V-Wing.
Its just all grey just like most of the vehicles no colorThanks for the pics. Do you have any showing the cockpit? I want to see how detailed it is. Does it even use the same ejection seat that the other Ties had or is it just a sparse cockpit with not much detail?
