Tonight is the last match of the SSG Battle of the Machines Quarterfinals!
The competition is tight now as we see which Hasbro Star Wars vehicles will go into the Semi-Finals.
The challenge before us now? Darth Vader's TIE Fighter versus the Imperial TIE Bomber!
Is it firepower or the Force that counts the most? Or is it even a contest with firepower as it pertains to the TOYS?
Darth Vader's Sienar Fleet Systems Advanced TIE Fighter is a main bad-boy in the Empire's Starfleet! This ship is completely resculpted compared to the vintage version, and features an awesome array of weapons the Dark Lord of the Sith can command from the one-seat cockpit. This ship accomodates ONLY Darth Vader, or he'll be very, very mad! At his disposal are repositioning laser cannons that can be extended or withdrawn, plus dual missle launchers that actually fire rockets! The main body's molding is authentically styled straight from "A New Hope" and features the crest where Lord Vader's ship has room to be the only TIE Fighter to have shields and a hyperdrive installed on board. Darth Vader's TIE defeated Gold Leader in the Y-wing Fighter in a close match that ended with the Dark Lord on top 67-55, carrying 54% of the vote back to his StarDestroyer.
The Imperial Navy's TIE BOMBER was only just released about two months ago. It is getting harder to locate for many collectors who never found this ship, though online stores seem to have obtained a stock of them. Meanwhile, a brand new original body sculpt featuring twin body-pods and great details contributes to this first-time ever offering of this awesome vehicle from "The Empire Strikes Back!" The ship is quite a good sized vehicle and features an opening cockpit that holds one TIE Pilot action figure that's included! The difference between this figure and the carded one released in 1996 would be jointed knees, and it's equivalent to the pilot that comes with this year's Toys R Us exclusive, the Interceptor. Meanwhile, the TIE Bomber is a Wal*Mart Exclusive that makes a blast on the collectors' sites with 3 detailed plasma bombs that are gravity activated from a firing control on top of the ship's weapons module! The TIE Bomber narrowly defeated the B-wing Fighter 67-63 to be here. It carried about 52% of the vote in its victory.
