TIE Fighters

Whassup, everyone? Sorry I’ve been a bit absent of late. Been busy with work and other stuff. I keep meaning to get started on a new CGI ship, but I haven’t found the motivation yet. My saber hobby has been progressing, but slowly. That stuff costs a lot more than the CGI. 😉 Anyway, onto the reason for today’s post.

Back in 2015, I kept seeing these ships in the store I work in. They’re the Hot Wheels die cast Star Wars ships, very cool. I kept saying I was going to get some, but then I never did, so then they were gone and I was sad. Well, new Star Wars movie coming out, new ships, yadda yadda. So, I picked up some last night. I decided to start with some TIE Fighters. I have Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced X1, Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer and the First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter. I didn’t see the original TIE Fighter from the original trilogy in the store, and it looks like they didn’t do my favorite in this run, the TIE Interceptor. So, I may have to see what I can find online. Anyway, it’s a start with this collection:

  1. Hi EG180,
    Those are nice models you have there. I have been fortunate and managed to get a few bargains recently including 7 twin packs, two of which are the Imperial Tie Fighter/Ghost, TFA Falcon/First Order Tie Fighter priced at $2.63 each. I also snagged the Hero Star-ship 4 pack for $18.50, the single pack ANH Falcon for $1.32 and three twin packs of cars priced $2.63 including the Vader/Leia, Rey/Flametrooper and the R2-D2/C-3PO packs. A lot of stores here in the UK are trying to clear stocks of the older Star Wars/ TFA branded models. Good luck finding the rest of the Tie Fighter fleet!
    p.s. I can’t post pics at the moment my camera is out of commission 😦
