This was on RS forums,

Somewhat lost in the shuffle of the Comic Con hoopla was a tidbit passed along to man on the street Matt Colman. Hasbro is hard at work on a properly scaled TIE Fighter and will probably get it to market sometime in 2006. The progress on this new vehicle has been slow due to budget constraints but it is progressing a little at a time! Good news for vehicle fans who have been fed up with Undersized vehicles for some time.

Big time Hasbro has "budget constraints"? Come on. I will believe it when it's in my hands.
Anyone heard of Matt Colman?
