Thread: New TIE Fighter

  1. #1

    New TIE Fighter

    Hasbro released a larger, more accurate Electronic Power F/X X-wing.
    Now I would like to see the same thing done to the TIE fighter. Retool the enire craft, w/ a ball cockpit instead of the "handle" on the back. I don't even need the electronics, I'd just like it to be the correct scale.

    I know this might be too much for a movie year, but maybe for a year or 2 from now.

    There have been some rumors of a 25th Anniversary TIE Figher to go along with the 25th Anniversay X-Wing later this year. I know that there have been some internal rumors and rumblings from Hasbro of them wanting to do a properly scaled TIE Fighter for some time, and this is the year it would most likely appear. Though, I would rather see them wait til next year, since we already have a ton of exclusives coming this year.

    JJB, tell me about this 25th ann. X-Wing. I haven't heard about it. The only thing I've heard anything of is the new Action Fleet vehicles.

    No need for me to post all the same info over here, so here is a link to the forum where all the info is posted. I also have a picture of the mockup in there. Enjoy!

    I'd love to have a new Tie.But I agree with Jar Jar on the time thing.next year would be better

    Electronics for the new TIE are a must!!! I now have four (okay, three, the TIE BOMBER hasn't arrived yet) TIEs and none of them scream like they did when I was a wee little lad. I'd lick at least one of 'em to make a little noise.

    I definitely think that a new TIE will be done soon. Who knows, they could always show up in Episode III. Of all the OT ships --- the TIE still kicks with the best of them.

    I really don't want electronics in a TIE Fighter, if it has them, then have accurate sounds and lights, but if it doesn't, even better. However, I definitely want a more accurate TIE Fighter sculpt with wings that aren't all smooshed down to fit in a box.

    Full-size wings and an accurate cockpit, you'd think we were asking for something COMPLICATED!!!!!!!

    The TIE fighter has one of the most distinctive sounds, not only in the Star Wars films, but in ANY film. I'd love an electronic, to-scale TIE fighter to go with my 25thA X-Wing.

    Yeah Jeditricks! You've had four silent TIE FIGHTERS. At least allow us one that screams! Rollo is right. It's the signature sound of star wars. How many other vehicles have sound you can mimic?

    I'm all for having a brand-new TIE Fighter. And I agree that it does have one of the most distinctive sounds in the saga (aside from that familar snap-hiss of the lightsabers). This would be the perfect time to release a new TIE. First, it's been off the shelves for years now. Second, it'll be able to share the shelves with its "brothers" so to speak. The TIE Interceptors are still around, and the TIE Bomber is coming very soon. All that's left is the original TIE Fighter. Maybe they should consider a revamped Darth Vader TIE Fighter and have all four around simultaneously.
