TRU 181st Elite TIE Interceptor
« on: February 25, 2007, 09:50 PM »
Clicky...

Sounds pretty neat. Be cool if they did a red Royal Guard version, like the 3' Titanium Interceptor. Pack in a ROTS Royal Guard and you'd be all set. Or perhaps, it could be a regular Interceptor, but include a new Baron Fel...

But knowing Hasbro, they'll give us a straight repack of the POTJ version and pack in a POTF2 TIE Crewman.

Thoughts?

It's probably going to have the same wings as the POTJ TIE Interceptor.  But as memory serves me, I think that version still had the battery compartment on the back of the cockpit.  This new version could have the resculpted cockpit as well as the new hatch that's on the new white TIE Fighter.  And if they pack in the OTC TIE Fighter Pilot I'll be happy.

Missed out on this one the first time and never picked up the scaled TIE Fighter. I'll pick one up.

I never bought this ship.  I can't remember why.  I'll need to see it again and maybe I'll get one.  I'm not too excited though.

I'm in for two I think if the cockpit section is corrected...  I can deal without the new lid, just so long as it has the spiffy accurate cockpit rear with no battery box.  I have like 4 Int's now, 2 more will suit me though.  A nice flight mix there.

That's my hope. I can't see why they wouldn't do that. Though, a red version would be interesting.

Ya, that red Titanium Interceptor really knocked my socks off the first time I saw it.  I'm hoping for a red version minus that battery back section - not that it bugs me too much though.  I already have several of the POTJ version so I'd only buy one of these to leave boxed if there's nothing new on it.  I'd take 4-5 red ones to open though.

vehicles are almost always a pass for me, it all depends on the pack-in

I am totally stoked about this development. I missed out on the Tie INterceptor the 1st time around, and I love the fact Hasbro loves to recycle!

Are there any more claims to support the release of the TIE Interceptor because I haven't herd anything else about it.  ???

I'll also get one if it has the battery-compartment-less cockpit, and sell off my POTJ one.  I only need one (despite how cool it is!)  which I hang from the ceiling.

Note the small wing TIE which has since been replaced:

I'd be dissapointed if it was the old mold. There's no reason to go back.

I have 4 POTJ Int's so I won't sell them off just because of the battery compartment, however a new one with the new cockpit mold would be great to get a few more of...  or at least two (knowing TRU's prices).  I'll hang onto my old ones though as I think they're still passable on display.

It's kind of like the commtech Stormtrooper...  Sure he got replaced, but I've got a hundred of him so I am ok with him as a placeholder, maybe a little customizing to help him fit in more too.  Can't just get rid of 'em all.   :-\
