Star Wars Black 6" Tie Pilot

That was fast. I just got the Darth Vader wave and now the next wave is already out. Here's a look at the Tie Pilot.

This is a great looking figure. I love the helmet. It was well sculpted and it looks spot on. The gloss black helps make it stand out. The Imperial emblems were very well painted on. His uniform is comprised of a flight suit and armour. All the parts are new as far as I can tell. His suit has great detail. It has many creases on it and there are pockets on his sleeves and on the front of his thighs. There's a communications pad sculpted on his left forearm. Again the Imperial emblem were well painted on the sleeves. The gloves and boots are gloss black and it helps them stand out from his suit. The body armour is also gloss black. It is smooth and has sculpted shoulder straps. The chestbox at the front was stuck on. All the buttons and switches were sculpted and well painted. The tubes which connect to the helmet are ribbed. The belt is a separate piece and has a sculpted buckle and stud on it.

Some close-ups of the helmet. Click images to enlarge.

The tubes are detachable at the helmet end.

He comes with the same blaster rifle as with the Stormtrooper.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, mid torso rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. Turning his head too much will cause the tubes to detach.

Comparison shots.

Great figure. Now I need to find one more so as to accompany Vader. Thanks for viewing!
