This Tie Fighter Pilot action figure was released in
1996 in the Power Of The Force 2 Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure six joints and included
two accessories (blaster, blaster rifle).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Clone Trooper:
- The Tie Fighter Pilot's helmet is not removable
- Both oversized weapons fit OK into the hands
- The chest box is permanently attached to the helmet and can't be removed
- The figure stands shaky without help from a stand
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs
With its vast space fleet, the Imperial Navy is a model of military efficiency. The best pilots in its ranks are rigorously trained to use use highly maneuverable and heavily armed Twin Ion Engine (TIE) fighters. The small ships are used to both attack - and defend against - Rebel forces.
Unlike the Stormtroopers, TIE pilots wear black plasti-steel protective armor over an insulated high-gravity body glove. Their reinforced helemt features polarized lenses, a navigational computer link-up screen, a vocoder, and breathing filters. Two gas transfer hoses connect from the helmet to a chest plate control unit which contains an emergency atmospheric unit and control switches for the armor functions. Tightly sealed wrist gauntlets allow dexterity in handling TIE Fighter controls, while positive-gravity pressure boots keep the pilot well anchored even in zero-gravity situations.
