Re: How many of you found the POTJ Tie Interceptor at TRU?

My TRU was swimming with these things for months. I bought mine when it was first released without any problems, and watched as the pyramid of Interceptors just sat there until December or so.

Re: How many of you found the POTJ Tie Interceptor at TRU?

The one time I found these at TRU, there were about 4 of them. I bought one, butI really wanted two, as this was a childhood favorite.

Never saw them again either..

<font size="2" face="arial">Some TRU computers have the SKN currently listed for $9.90 retail. Although nearly all interceptors have sold out, somewhere out there there maybe an interceptor or two hiding in a store somewhere just waiting to be found and bought. Another reason is that the computers still list the interceptor in inventory although physically they are gone. In this case, the system need to be adjusted (called a POS adjustment) so that the cost can be purged from their system.

Til next report...

Re: How many of you found the POTJ Tie Interceptor at TRU?

I had seen Interceptors during a brief lapse when I wasn't really buying any Star Wars figs. When I started up again, it was gone. I did, fortunately, get a loose one off the classifieds board here for about the same price as I would have paid at TRU.

I have only seen the Re-issued Saga Bomber, and you bet I got it! I've seen it a few times since, but not lately.

Re: How many of you found the POTJ Tie Interceptor at TRU?

I never saw the Interceptor at a TRU here in the Chicago burbs. In fact, I rarely see ANYTHING. I had to get mine off of ebay, won 3 but only received 2 cause one of the sellers bailed out.

Re: Tie Interceptor.

Way to dig deep for this thread though. At least you didn't start a new one. That should make some people happy.

Re: Tie Interceptor.

Man, that was funny. I started reading through this thread and started to get scared that there was actually a Tie-Interceptor vehicle hitting stores. I was about to have to wonder why I hadn't heard a single thing about it until I finally noticed the date of the original post.
Silly me. Wishful thinking I guess.

Re: Tie Interceptor.

Well, you could always pick up the POTJ one. After reading through this thread, I want one now. Again, stupid distribution.

Re: Tie Interceptor.

I had no problems spotting them, actually I remember coming across them more than a few times but it was always no more than 4 at a time. I actually ended up passing on them each freakin' time though.

I didn't get mine till sometime in 03 through the classifieds section here (before I lost my password to my old screename that I barely even bothered posting with
), and why I still think till this day that it was a dope deal since it was sold to me at retail price with the shipping included...even though it remains boxed I still really like it, great vehicle indeed.

Re: Tie Interceptor.

WOW wish I could find one, ofcourse in the classifieds, but you know its kinda hard to swallow 80-100$ when I used to see it on the shelf all the time for the 34.95 at the store!
but thats the price to pay when u pass it up all the time

Yep, and especially vehicles more than figures! basically if you want it get it then or be prepared to shell the big bucks later...it never really fails.

Was this set really limited in numbers? i know it was an exclusive but the price i see it going for on the secondary market seems very steep..compared the the other POTJ exclusive vehicles that is.


I was looking to find an AT-ST (any version) in 2003 and managed to get this set loose/mint with the Speeder bike + Paploo figure for about £17 plus p+p from ebay,at the time i didn't think it was an especially good deal really..but i was happy.And now even some speciality stores over in the UK are selling this set for £50 and they still seem to dissapear fast.

Re: Tie Interceptor.

I remember seeing this vehicle exactly once at retail. There were 4 at a TRU and I said to myself "I'll pick this up next month when I have more cash." I never saw it again. A friend sold me theirs a few years later for retail though.

Apparently you got the Darth Anton seal of approval.


This is actually one of the few exclusives i bought for PotJ. I really liked it, because it had the remolded wings, and I didn't have the Vintage Interceptor. However, with the Target TIE that was released I really hope that we get a new Interceptor with larger wings.

Re: Tie Interceptor.

This was one of the gems in the POTJ line. Luke's Snowspeeder and the TIE Interceptor were freakin' awesome.

Yeah, if I had to choose which vehicle I liked the most in this line it would be a close toss up between the Tie Interceptor and the B-Wing. I love the B-wing!

Nice ships, but as far as I'm concerned, nothing touches the TIE Bomber.

TIE Interceptor Size?

I recently picked up the Toys R Us exclusive TIE Interceptor from TLC. However, it's a little bigger than I would like it to be. I'm looking for a TIE Interceptor that's about as big as the TIE Fighter that was released in TLC when TCW toys first came out in 2008. Would I be looking in the right place if I picked up the Interceptor from POTJ?

As you can see they are the same, just minor modifications on them.
Shoot. All right, thanks for your help
