I was not sure if I wanted to buy the new TIE pilot when I heard they were making a new one. But for valentines day my wife went to the Big Flats Wal-Mart when I was at work. She saw the new Dadonna wave and bought all of them for me. I came home and was overjoyed even though Captain Antilles was not in this case.
The pilot is the figure that I am least excited about in this wave and the most prominent difference from the original POTF version is the larger head that this new figure has. The eye sockets of the figure itself look almost transparent which is really a nice feature. The hoses and chest plate are quite different and perfectly detailed. Unlike the last TIE pilot made the new one's head does not move well because the chest plate is attatched to the chest itself.
The body of the figure is is almost identical to the first TIE pilot, with exception to the detail and boot side. The feet of the pilot are quite small, despite this the figure stands well, which is good news. The outfit is given a very wrinkly detail, and the gloves are also detailed. I must admit that I like the new pilot much more than the POTF version even though the big difference is in the head and chest plate. Still the figure is nice and deserves a B -.
