I spun this thread off since it's an exclusive vehicle (and not really part of the $20 ship assortment).

And, just so folks can find it in this thread too, here's the DPCI:

Must be the extra red paint they had to use on the Interceptor... :P

Less than $25 when it hits clearance. :P

Don't forget about the $30 TRU Y-Wing which comes in a window box and includes 2 figures......


Less than $25 when it hits clearance. :P

I already have 2xPOTJ Bombers and 2xSaga Bombers, but I'll pick up a few more when these hit 75% off.....after three weeks of being on the shelves.   ::)

I missed out on the first TIE Bomber release, so for me this will be a must-have! Nice that it includes the OTC TIE Pilot, which I also don't have. And also nice that we're getting a Target deal, and really nice that it will probably be on super cheap clearance two weeks after it hits shelves, so I can maybe get two.

Yes, there are a lot of nice things about this one. I'm now wondering about the pilot though. The packaged photo looks like it has the POTF2 version. ???

I sure hope it's the OTC pilot- I can't believe they are using any other mold on these figures now-

Wish they'd use the DSG with the comic Fel removable gear, now that'd be sweet.

The link is now gone, but the one e-bay hong kong seller had the POTF2 bendable knee TIE Pilot available. I'm betting this means we're getting it for the bomber. :'(

That might just be a package mockup, and they might have only had the old TIE Pilot available for that photo.  But then again we did see the TRU exclusive TIE Fighter ship with either the POTF2 TIE Pilot or the SAGA Gold TIE Pilot.

That photo is from the black sheep toy guys, they wouldn't take it if it wasn't in production.  :(

Wow, this thread fell by the wayside.  I guess everybody's had their fill of what, the third release of a TIE Bomber?  I had to admit though, I like the paintjob on this version.

I'll say, I did not even open mine yet.
Come to think of it I did not open the Arc Shark, White Tie, TRU AT-AT and Obi Starfighter with Hyperring either. I am kind of in robot mode buying the repaint ships. I have a pile of crap waiting to be plucked out but I have to build up the energy to do so. I want some new vehicle to get me excited. I will open the Hyperspace ring since that is half new.

Glad to hear the paint job is better, I just do not understand why the used the old POTF2 pilot. ???
