The beast has finally arrived! Back at SDCC 2015 we got our first glimpse of the Star Wars Black Series 6 Inch scale Tie Fighter, a gigantic vehicle made to work with the larger Black Series line. Personally I never thought we’d see anything like this in this scale but I am glad they rolled the dice! This thing is massive, really massive. The box is big but once it’s put together it’s a sight to behold. Hopefully these pictures do it justice but you really need to see it in person to fully understand. The First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter is shipping to retailers now and should be arriving soon at site sponsor Entertainment Earth. Check out over 60 shots after the break!
Star Wars Black Series First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter & First Order Tie Fighter Pilot Elite
Great paint apps
Dual seats in cockpit
Awesome mold detailing
Need to find a place to put it :)
Overall this thing is fantastic. It feels like my childhood powered up. I was zooming this thing around making pew pew noises at the cats like it was 1983. This time I needed 2 hands though. It’s big and heavy. The paint is sharp and clean, and there is a layer of weathering on top to add some realism. The double cockpit upgrade as seen in the movie is here, both with their own window and control sticks able to be handled by the pilots. There are no projectiles, but there are moving guns/antennas on the top and bottom. The only negative here is that the wings are bowed. Not as bad as the recent 3 3/4th scale one, but definitely there. Not from weight either, was like that right out of the box. Overall if you have the room, grab this bad boy. It is a feat to behold. Now, where is my 6 inch scale Millennium Falcon? :)
