As we gather more info regarding the details of the products for Force Friday’s launch of merchandise for The Last Jedi, let’s continue our look at some of the figures and vehicles and focus on the 3.75″ Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer
First off, it just looks cool. It’s as if The Tumbler, The Bat and a TIE Interceptor made sweet plastic love. The vehicle is on the large side but scale sticklers may yet balk, though like the A-wing, the proportions do not look skewed. The included Kylo Ren enters the cockpit via a single (one piece) hatch – hinged at the back. From what I can see, the cockpit seems roomy enough (for one) so average height figures should fit without issue. On the outboard sides of the wings (opposite of where they attach to the fuselage) there are two projectile launchers – one on each wing – that look to pop out from each side when activated.
Here’s where things may go rotten in D’Qar. Due to the thin wings, especially the tips where the cannons are located, I can see warpage. It could be the angle in which I’m seeing the ship but prepare thyself just in case.
Priced at $49.99 with a figure seems like a decent deal especially if the new Force Link tech lives up to my optimistic expectations. As of now, no decent hi-res images have turned up for this but I’d expect something to go public in the next few days.
