To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars hitting the big screen, Funko are releasing a new wave of Star Wars Pops!, which includes this incredible Tie Fighter Pilot in Tie Fighter Deluxe Pop! Vinyl Figure!
TIE fighters are fast, agile, yet fragile starfighters produced by Sienar Fleet Systems for the Galactic Empire.
TIE fighter pilots, who undergo intense physical and psychological testing, are trained to be intensely loyal to Emperor Palpatine and the Empire, willing to sacrifice themselves and their wingmates to accomplish their mission. TIE pilots were seen as expendable assets, as it was far cheaper to manufacture a great deal of standardized spacecraft in overwhelming numbers than it was to fully equip the craft. However as seen in The Force Awakens, the First Order see value in their pilots and equip them with a shield and ejection seat for their own safety.
