Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the latest addition to our exciting line of vintage Kenner-inspired Star Wars Action Figure reproductions with the release of the classic Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot Jumbo Figure.
Digitally scanned from mint 3 ¾” Kenner originals and reproduced at a Jumbo size, no detail has been overlooked. Roto cast and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure includes a faithfully reproduced gray Pilot Blaster! It even comes fully articulated!
With a commitment to keep in line with the vintage Kenner experience, Gentle Giant has packaged this figure with an Empire Strikes Back-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, the figure comes in a resealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition figure.
The TIE Fighter Pilot is clad in a black flight suit; thick black life support hoses link the grim black helmet to the mechanized chest-borne component. Identified by numbers rather than names, TIE Fighter Pilots are a prime example of Imperial cannon fodder. TIE Fighters are constructed for swarm effectiveness, individually offering very little by way of defensive protection. For the garden variety TIE Fighter Pilot, life expectancy is generally low and completely thankless, although death by dogfight and/or misadventure can be preferable to remaining aboard the Death Star and accidentally incurring the wrath of Darth Vader’s force choke.
