My POTF2 one is still in one piece, so I'll be passing on this.
The statement below is true.
The statement above is false.

Nope, OTC had the battery pack. Or atleast, I'm pretty sure it did.


Nope it has the fixed cockpit. ;) I never got that SAGA TIE, my KB sucked and there wasn't any others annywhere close, I picked up the OTC TIE because it had the fixed cockpit ball as well.

I just inspected the one I haven't opened yet. The OTC one does not have the battery compartment. ;)

D'oh! Now I feel like a real jackass. I just realized I have a POTF2 one infront of the 5 OTCs I have, and I thought the POTF2 one was the OTC kinda. Brilliant.

Wow, that must make for an impressive display.   :o

I'm sure the other guys aren't too worried about your mistake.   ;)

Courtesy of Ryan over in the MN Store Reports Thread:

Listing from the Target Computer:

TIE Fighter w/Figure
DPCI = 087-06-1496
$39.99


$40!   >:(

Good Grief! 

Wasn't the KB Version with the figure like $30?  So that means an extra $10-15 just for the new wings?   ::)

Sure, I'll end up buying the damn thing, but it's times like this I hate myself for my SW OCD...  :-\

Allow me to say one profanity laced statement that will sum up my feelings on the matter:

WHAT THE ****?!?!

So, the TIE Bomber at Wal-Mart went for 30 dollars, which I understood.  The OTC TIE at KB went for 30 dollars, which I was skeptical of, but understood.  The TIE Interceptor at TRU went for 25 dollars, which I understood.

Now, a regular TIE Fighter with what looks like a POTF2 era figure is 40 dollars because they had to make some new wings?  I'm telling you, this thing had better fly on its own for 40 dollars.  >:(

Actually, yes - at the moment, it is planned to be a Target Exclusive item.

Bummer, obviously I missed that part of the announcement. Now I'm not so surprised.

I am definitely one of the cheap...err, frugal collectors out there, and I'm surprised by the $40 price tag if it's accurate, but I don't feel this as much as I feel the EE Astromech packs (which I'm not buying).  I just know this ship is gonna look great hanging from the ceiling!

The B-wing was a Target ship and it was way bigger and better, also had a pilot and it was $40.  I cannot imagine how this ship can cost anything more than 29.99 or even 24.99.  Oh well, peg warming here we go.

It's our own fault for the high prices.  We bought up 12 dollar Clones, and 12 dollar Lava Vaders...they know that they can over charge us, and it will still sell.
