Thanks to the Disney Store we have some fabulous Force Fridays finds as we take a look at ride vehicles straight from the Star Wars saga as we countdown to the release of The Force Awakens!
What is a TIE Fighter?
Why, its the quintessential imperial ship, thank you very much! Seriously, though the official description shows this is the imperial fighter pilot's go-to ship, especially in the first trilogy (IV-VI), "The TIE fighter was the unforgettable symbol of the Imperial fleet. Carried aboard Star Destroyers and battle stations, TIE fighters were single-pilot vehicles designed for fast-paced dogfights with Rebel X-wings and other starfighters. The iconic TIE fighter led to other models in the TIE family including the dagger-shaped TIE Interceptor and the explosive-laden TIE bomber. The terrifying roar of a TIE's engines would strike fear into the hearts of all enemies of the Empire." TIE fighters have a long history in the Star Wars saga, and they aren't going anywhere!
Disney sent me two versions of these awesome die-cast models and they are beautiful, finely detailed, and perfect for the Star Wars lover in your life (both young and old) this holiday season! Click the pictures below to check 'em out!
