As per the front page, we've got a boxed image of the upcoming retooled Target TIE Fighter
. Earlier, we brought you the first images of the ship's prototype which highlighted the new cockpit details that feature an ejection seat (as seen in Empire Strikes Back and the Expanded Universe), and the strange colorings of the ship (white with a red cockpit lense/viewports).
Later Jayson then speculated the ship's coloration matches the style seen in the Shadows of the Empire comics. This was then confirmed by Hasbro as the inspiration for the "look" with the red windows and "white" deco (film ships are light grey, or a grey-blue color, but never were white).
Though Hasbro's obviously being honest of where the ship's "look" comes from, it ironically is in a box depicting a battle over the Death Star.
I am a big-wing-TIE fan, so I'm biased, but if this had different coloring (IE: Film accurate) I'd probably buy 2 of them. THe new cockpit is outstanding looking and I'm hopeful we'll see a film-deco here in the near future.
