Action Fleet Tie Defender
« on: August 24, 2003, 04:05 AM »
Did anyone ever find & pick up the Action Fleet Tie Defender?

I have been watching auctions on them for along time. I have seen loose examples go for over $100.00. This boxed Tie Defender went for a very high price.  :o

Action Fleet Tie Defender VERY RARE

This would be a very cool ship to have. To bad it was towards the end of the line before...   :'(

Only damned A.F. ship I'm missing...   >:(  I was lucky enough to stumble across a lone E-Wing at Target several months after the original A.F. line had run it's course, so I guess I should feel lucky enough for that nice score.  But the Tie Defender's been on my eBay watch list for a couple of years now, and I imagine it's going to be a thorn in my side for quite some time to come.  I'll get one someday.  Just not real soon...   :-\

Would've been a real nice ship for Hasbro to throw into the mix when they relaunched the A.F. line last year, rather than all that rehash crap that we already had.  Better decisions like that would've probably kept this line afloat a little longer...

I'm not the biggest diehard Action Fleet Collector, so I obviously don't own that particular one but it is very cool.  I can't believe anything Action Fleet is worth that much.  The bid is at $222 with 5 bids... wow!   :o

I'm only missing a few Action Fleet pieces, and the TIE Defender is one of them.  Hopefully I'll be able to score it at some point.  I never saw it at retail, along with the E-Wing.  So, it's on my short list of Action Fleet that I'm looking for.  That includes....

TIE Defender
E-Wing
Rancor
Remote Controlled AT-AT
EPISODE I Series Alpha Droid Starfighter
Series Alpha Cloud Car
Hoth Base with Rebel Snowspeeder
SAGA Republic Assault Ship
SAGA Republic Gunship
SAGA Slave I

I came across the E-wing and TIE Defenders 2-3 times at Target and the TIE Defenders an additional 2 more times during TRU's clearance days. I have a TD but never thought about picking up an extra to trade for an e-wing, which I passed on.

I noticed the prices on many of the ships climbing again, probably spurred by the uncertainty of the line's future. The $222, though, is f'n unbelievable.

thanks to a good friend of mine I have both the Defender and E-wing. i lost one package last year with 2 boxed items but now I have them loose C10.

The Defender is AWSOME, I would like to see also other EU TIE ships: TIE Droid, TIE Scout or TIE Phantom

The E-Wing is not that good. In fact it isn't one of my favorites (no landing gear - ok, only one like the Snowspeeders), the nose thing that moves is pretty ugly.

Their prices are very high and together with some other AF items they could drain your pockets easily. I'm still missing a few AF toys - only some of the rarest ones:Action Fleet ships/vehicles :


Alpha B-Wing
Alpha Y-Wing
Alpha Cloud Car
Droid Control Ship
Royal Starship
Alpha Droid fighter
Marc Guo's Podracer
Predator Ship

Action Fleet playsets :

Generator Core Duel miniscene (TPM)


MicroMachines playsets :

Theed Palace Assault (TPM)
Tatooine Desert (TPM)
Galactic Senate (TPM)
some head playsets

thanks but I'd prefer them loose. They are not that rare and the price would be around $26 plus shipping/ship. Too much... ;)

Millennium Falcon/Command Center- transformable

I think I have that?  I'm not up to speed on MM stuff as I just was picking new stuff up at random and got this when it came out.

If you're interested, give me a hollar on it JJKS.

PS:  

I think I have the box too, and it's not in terrible shape...  I gotta find that stuff though, I packed up all my MM except the Action Fleet (because it mostly works with SW Minis battles) a while back.

D'oh,

Yeah Sergiu, I meant you...  JJKS, JKNO, all you guys with letters instead of names dammit!

:)

Anyway, let me know if you're interested anyway...  I can't fathom shipping over yonder though, haha.  Gotta be pricey. :(
