Hey Hasbro,

Just a thought, how about giving us a whole new TIE pilot and not just re-releasing the Saga or POTF, or POTJ versions. How about an SA TIE Pilot with removable helmet and head variations, human, clone, Chiss, etc, maybe even perhaps a female TIE pilot. maybe even some running changes like the bloodstripes for the 181st.

perhaps you can even make a TIE Pilot battlepack, perhaps 2-3 Pilots in full uniform and maybe 2-3 pilots in just a standard jumpsuit no gear. maybe as an accessory you can put in a training simulator or something. this would also be a great way to release the Saga large wing TIE again as well as EU TIE's, like the Defender,Crawler, Advanced, and maybe even a Chiss Clawcraft.

Maybe even an EU Han Solo as a TIE Pilot (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=36356).

I think if the 2004 Saga TIE Pilot just had some better arm articulation and a ball-joint neck, it would be perfect.

The main reason I DON'T want to see an update of the figure is because I just know that they will give the figure a removable helmet with a stupid Jango head underneath. Plus, they will just reuse that undersized helmet that they packed in with the comic 2-pack figure.

The TIE Pilots in the movie looked like melon-heads, so that's how they need to look in action figure form.

I'd really like to see the TIE Pilot released in VTSC super-articulated form. The removable helmet on the Baron Fel comic pack looked pretty cheesy to me so I'd prefer the ball-jointed helmet only. I'm tired of seeing Jango's kiwi face underneath all the troops. And how about a super-articulated VTSC AT-AT Driver as well. The Saga version was pretty good but VTSC could really go the extra mile on articulation and detail.

I like the idea of having a running change on a new tie fighter pilot, blood stripes for Fel's guys, a female, a jango, a average human, i would really get into this.

I would be happy with a re-release of ye olde SAGA Tie Pilot. It's gonna have been 4 years.

If you use the Jango head, you're bound to upset somebody.

How could Hasbro improve on the Saga version? As far as articulation:

Ball-jointed head
Ball-jointed shoulders
swivel elbows
swivel wrists
hips
knees
ankles

Unless they added waist articulation, I don't see how that sculpt can be improved upon, given the bulkiness of some of the Driver's armor. And the extensive existing articulation almost makes waist articulation unnecessary, IMO. I would say the same for the detail, which is nothing short of outstanding for a more obscure Imperial trooper type.

That comic pack Baron Fel figure has me very wary of what a new TIE Pilot figure would look like right now. I saw the figure in person the other day and it's just horrible.

I hoping we don't see a new TIE Pilot for a couple of years, then maybe Hasbro will be over their Jango-fetish, and we won't have to worry about Temura Morrison's head ending up underneath the helmet.
