VOTD #20 - TIE Fighter - POTF2


 Introduction: In 1995, Hasbro brought back many of the Vintage vehicles from the 70's and 80's. Today's VOTD features the TIE Fighter which was copied from the old vintage version minus the battery compartment. Only this time they updated the Wings and gave us sculpted solar panels instead of sticker applied versions. Remember how bad they looked once the stickers p...eeled off?

My Opinion: I was always disappointed with the size of these TIE Fighters. I always wanted a larger scaled wings which now we have today. I didn't really like the idea at first of these vehicles coming back but they did update them to make them better than the old ones. I liked the idea of the blue prints being included but Hasbro quickly stopped doing that after the first round of vehicles. How many of you out there own this particular TIE Fighter?
