Series 4...completed!  I'm really enjoying this wave more than I initially thought I would.  Helps that they focused on the empire for a change.



Here's a comparison of the TIE Pilots for anyone who's interested...

I appreciate the tie pilot side by side.

Not being interested in the vintage-esque tie (and turning down your offer to buy yours  ;)) it's nice to see the comparison with out actually having to buy it  ;D

It's interesting to see there's definitely some minor differences and it's not a straight repaint.

Cool, nice detail on the TIE pilot...didn't notice those differences. What is that Death Star display from? Is that vintage?

Nice pics Justin!

I'm revamping my kubrick set-ups, and still not sure how it's all going to lay out. I've been setting them up in the plastic model car/airplane display cases on shelves, which really helps keep the dust issue under control, but limits how they can be arranged. I think I'm going to do some hunting for an old school trophy case or something...

Yep.  That is the Death Star Space Station with the trash compactor pulled out.  I'd know it anywhere, I have three (at one time I was trying to make a complete pie of them :P).  It's great for displays.

Love the variant shots!

Correctamundo!  I set them up in my vintage DS for a while.  Funny, I ended up nabbing three as well to make a Death Star wall of sorts.  I think the old Trash Compactor looks goofy in all three, but otherwise makes for a slick display piece.

As for the TIP Pilots, I thought it was a straight repaint the first time I looked at it.  I really like how they were true to the vintage vs. POTF2 chest plates though.

For those that own both chases, is the second Imperial Officer a re-paint of the first i.e. same hat/hairpiece and skirt piece?

Every time I see a picture of that imperial Offocer chase, I can't help but think it looks half finished. Why didn't they at least paint some clothing lines in the upper torso.

Anyway, sorry to side track your question. I don't have this chase so I can say anything about the similarities.
