Retro lookin' Imperial TIE Fighter packaging!



VOTC '10: Classic TIE Fighter_front packaging

At one glance, one may mistakenly thought that the image above was taken off a picture album belonging to one lucky Star Wars fan way back in '83. This however is a brand new release from Hasbro under the "Kenner" tag to rekindle the nostalgic feelings amongst us Star Wars fans, especially those who were lucky enough to have had the original toy when it was first released all those years ago when ESB was being played in the cinemas.

Well, as some of you might already know, Hasbro's currently kinda pushing their 'Vintage packaging' Star Wars (VOTC) strategy into the vehicle department as well. So far we've got the Snowspeeder being released in the retro box together with the TIE Fighter. As for me, I'm itching to see how cool it will be when the AT-AT is finally released in its retro/vintage packaging!

This piece of retro goodness belongs to The Rebel Page's resident reviewer, the_ridz......so rest assured, a review on the superb packaging (AND the actual toy itself) will follow suit! Stay tuned.....
