I concur. I found some dimensions of the actual ship;I am going by the official photos and animation that was released.
The cockpit is very roomy as you can see by the official photos and gif.
I determine that it is over two times (not three as I stated) bigger than the toy in real-life scale terms, and probably roomy enough inside the ship to walk around.
Judging by the size of the micro-toy next to the figure, the cockpit section looks very tight and Kylo Ren would probably nearly have to lie down to sit in it just like the cockpit of the Rogue One U-Wing micro-toy.
Heck, that's actually larger than I thought it would be. It's not bad, it's in scale with the other TIEs. It's far from a Sith Infiltrator type situation.That's about the size I figured it would be.
The multi-faceted hull is sensible enough for the stealth capability (which I believe it has henceforth the name). The panels are obviously derived from the higher efficiency found in the TIE advanced and TIE/Int as well. The forward open panels are taken from the higher visibility found in the TIE/Int. So I take it the guys at ILM didn't have enough imagination to design something different that could do the same thing.Not everything needs to be just a slight revamp of an OT design, gosh darnit!!
Looks pretty cool to me. Why do you feel the need to criticise every vehicle so much?
No worse than vintage Interceptor is it?
Well actually that one looks to be sculpted on? So I would have to buy that one anyway. Its disappointing that this figure is exactly the same as the basic figure without the cape. Then again, I am sure we will be swimming in Ren variations at some point. I just hope they do Ren removable helmet, I love removable helmet figures.BUt then you wouldn't buy the helmet one with the force link...

It's been known as the Scimitar for a while now - at least as long as the offical Episode One: Incredible Cross-sections book has been around, so around the time of TPM cinematic release (back around 1999).Why does mauls ship suddenly have two names
Agreed.Not cool Jason. Not cool.
Looks like Hasbro are also releasing the First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter as well, I hope they make the wings a little thicker this time and a bit larger too ...
I did a custom using the old big TIE wings. I do prefer them even though a lot of people complain they are too big. It looks better in person than it does on the photos, for some reason they make it more disproportionate with my camera.
Not cool? Why do you consistently expect your "I like it" opinions to be tolerated but then question the "necessity" of other opinions? Is that cool? Is it cool to question the necessity of a person being critical of a you toy like?Not cool Jason. Not cool.
