    You'll probably want the Target exclusive TIE from last year or the TRU exclusive from this year. Both have the larger wings. Personally, I think the TRU one looks awesome with its new paint job.

    I heard talk of a white tie fighter coming out. What is that? I know the old kennet(70's) tie fighter were a whitesh color, so are they doing one in that vein as well?

    They're probably talking about the TRU one. It's grey instead of blue like previous versions.

    No, there's a white white one that was on display at SDCC. A throwback to the original '78 TIE. It's got a retooled front cannon and hatch. It reverts back to the original/small-scale wings though, presumably so it can be tossed in with the $20-price-point vehicles.
    Like Pimp said, your best bet is last year's 'ROTS' blue-gray Target exclusive or this year's (currently shipping) more gray TRU exclusive, both with the large-scale wings (and the retooled back end originally seen on the Saga '02 KB exclusive :sly: ).

    $45 is too much for the tie fighter, I thought $40 for the target one was going too far. I would almost buy the $45 tru grey ones if there was a vaders tie the same color.

    So it IS shipping now, eh? So one can (presumably) have a chance at finding it?

    TRU should have a special Star Wars section near the front of the store to help promote the new DVD's. I've seen pictures of stores with shelves overflowing with Ties and X-wings. So no.. you probably won't have a hard time finding them. Personally, I've seen at least 10 at the local TRU.

    Omnibus, thanks for that link. I'm all over that Tie when it comes out. For $20, I can live with the smaller wings.

    2-disc sets of the OT with the original theatrical cut on the 'bonus' disc, come out on 9/12. Theoretically, they're only available individually though it seems like every major retailer has some sort of exclusive w/all 3 bundled. It's just not like last time when the only way to buy them was as a set.
