Looks good. But the box says X-wing fighter on it. :beard: (http://www.galactichunter.com/photo.asp?image=absoluteNm/articlefiles/2698-OTCTIEbx.jpg)

The ship looked far better in the Saga box. Either way though I'm not interested since its the same out of scale TIE that most of us got on clearance at KB months ago. :dis:

I agree. So far I'm passing on all the vehicles announced for this year.

Another lame-o figure from hasbro. Of course they wouldn't dare try to improve anything. :rolleyes:

This is just the rehash one from 1995, right? I mean even though it's not in scale I'm going to buy some (I only have the Saga KB one). The package looks weird, hopefully there'll be stars or something in the background.

It's not the 1995 version. The cockpit has been modified to have the proper exhaust ports on the back rather than the clunky battery compartment.

Without accurately scaled solar panels, I'll leave this one on the shelves for the rest of you....since I got the Kbee one, and this seems to be that one in a new box, I'll pass.

surely to god we have all got one of these by now? what's the point hasbro :confused: ?

So what's the official word on this? Is anyone absolutely sure if this will be a repackaging of the modified KB Toy exclusive from last year?

Yes... it is definite.

From the news:
Here is a look at the new OTC TIE Fighter.
This is available for pre-order on ToysRUs.com (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005MKXG/sirstsguidetosta/102-6980775-7036947) for $29.99 and will be available on May 15th. But the linked article is a "Darth Vaders Tie Figher" instead of the OTC Tie-Fighter ... ? Strange ...

Hmmm... yeah, there IS a re-issued Vader TIE that is a TRU exclusive. *shrugs*

Which means SirSteve is wrong?

Or is the "Vader Tie" an toy of the OTC Line?
