This thing is huge!  It took me a long time trying to decide to spend the money when I found it at TRU, but I don't regret it for a second.  I love that the cockpit can actually hold 2 figures.

Great photo, Jesse.  Still, I don't know if that even does it justice.  I was just at the launch of ThinkGeek's new brick & mortar location, and they had the 6" scale TIE Fighter on display.  OMG, is it big!  It looked like the solar panel wings were actually bending somewhat because of the weight of the vehicle.  And considering TODAY was the launch day for this store, that TIE Fighter couldn't have been on display for all that long.  I have to wonder how those wings are going to hold up in the long run.

Saw the box today at Target, pretty impressive. Makes me wonder how big the Hot Toys Tie Fighter box will be.

That's absurdly tempting but where the hell am I supposed to one of those?!?!

Hang it from the ceiling.  That's what I told my buddy to do. :)  If I were buying 6", I'd be all over that.  It's actually nicely done, and miles superior to the 4" one they did.  That thing is sad.  :-\

You'd still have to hang it in a corner or something.  I'm tempted by this thing, but I'd have to duck every time I walk under it.  Maybe when it goes on clearance...

I saw this Yakface FB post about the 6" scale Special Forces TIE Fighter being on sale at Target stores for $49.09.  Has anyone here been able to get that deal?  I hope it's a widespread sale, and reports from numerous stores would certainly be encouraging.

There is no sign of that sale anywhere around here. And I have been looking everywhere  >:(

I wish they would honor their other stores' clearance sales.

There is one lone TIE at my local Target and it continues to scan at $169.99. No way I'm paying that much, but if I could get it for $50, I'm definitely going to buy it...

So I'm wondering how this thing has done overall. To be honest, Target seems to be the only store here carrying it, and our store has been sitting on the same two for awhile now. I'll admit I was tempted when Amazon had the price drop, but things were too tight with Christmas. I keep checking/hoping for a clearance, but nothing yet.

Pretty awesome though.

This will be 40% off on Amazon starting at 6pm as a May 4th Lightning Deal. Not sure what time zone that is.

It's been priced at $98 and change for the past day or so.  If THAT price gets discounted by 40% it would be an amazing deal.
