December is going to be another Star Wars month... with Episode 8 reaching fever pitch in trailers, and the toys would be probably be out by then too. But looking back at the original Episode 4 that was shown back in the 70's - one fighter seems to stand out from the rest, and that is the advanced Tie Fighter flown by Darth Vader.

The Tie Advanced X1 is different from the normal Tie Fighters in that it had greater speed, can carry secondary weapons (like cluster missiles), had tougher shielding... and was among the first tie fighters to be built with a Hyperdrive.

I particularly liked this cast by Tomica because it was more detailed than the one from Mattel. It’s a bit smaller though... but it seems to have more metal as well. :D
