Well, it seems like the vehicles are getting pretty stale at retail already in my area...

I did notice tonight that an area Walmart had put out the Force Link TIE Fighter:

The packaging looked very sharp, much better than the TFA version. If I was convinced that the wings on this thing were properl contructed (not flimsy), I'd probably pick one up! But it's hard to when so many of the previous version were on clearance for $10 range not too long ago and these could very well have a similar fate...?

I didn't see a price tag for them, and I didn't feel like walking around the store for a scanner.

I would also pick this up if I knew for sure that the wings were sturdier...Hopefully someone holds the key to that answer! :D

I want to know about the wings really bad also. I also want to see and hear more about the Poe Xwing. I would buy both if they are improved.

The wings are still warped. It might be hit or miss just like the TFA ones. My TFA one was relatively straight. However, someone posted pics on Rebelscum forums of how the new one looks and the wings are warped.

I was lucky enough that my TFA one had straight wings. I'm curious to hear what the state of the wings is on this Last Jedi version.

I ended up buying quite a few of the TFA TIE Fighter on clearance at Walmart... I think I ended up with 3 that had decent wings - the other 3 I ended up taking apart for custom vehicle wreckage.

Maybe for the next film they will release the TIE with the larger nice wings from way back when...

Jodo, a part of me thinks that they might do that too - bring out a better all-around line to close out the trilogy, like they did with ROTS in 2005.
