Spies report that a new, all-white TIE Fighter with big wings will show up at Toys "R" Us.



Right now.

Pretty slick since I only got one grey one and was hoping for two...  It's a pretty popular seller even secondary so it makes sense to see it back on shelves.  They blew through here even 2 and 3 reshipments later.

I have 2 blue ones, but would love a second grey since it essentially is the ANH deco that flanked Vader.

I saw this one coming. Too bad it's an over-priced TRU one.

I'm kind of glad to see that this is coming out again.  Because of my budget at the time, I wasn't able to get either of the previous versions, and always wanted to.  Plus, with all this spiffy Falcon news, I definitely would like to get the correctly scaled TIE to display along with the Falcon and the Dagobah or FX X-Wing.

I actually found and purchased on this morning on the Toys "R" Us in the Valley on Sherman Way.  (You know the one.)  $39.99.  I went there on Wednesday, and nothing.  Today, they had like two.   The funny thing is that the "lasers" are different than the tiny white one-- they retooled that area and removed the faux LED on the 85196 assortment one.  They left it on the big one, but it does have the new hatch and the 2004 TIE Pilot.
