After Hasbro’s big reveal at SDCC with their massive 6″ TIE Fighter, we’re curious what our readers think… is this a “must have item” or are you disappointed that they are making this $170 toy after telling us for years that things like a Death Star playset, Sail Barge and other 3.75″ items can’t be made?
Sound off in the forums with your thoughts and be sure to take our poll in the forums too!
