The figure itself is nothing new - were it not for the sounds or the change on the foot, you could skip it. For the added benefit of the sounds, I would say this is the better TIE to get. He has First Order symbols on his shoulders, and the buttons on the computers are basically unchanged. I was hoping the color of one of them might be a tiny bit different, but it was not meant to be. I admire Hasbro's clever way to fit a new functionality in a vehicle with no added costs, but would it have killed them to give the figure or vehicle some notable change? Battle damage! Meteor impacts? Different colored lights? The era of buying two of everything has long passed. One of everything is even a stretch for fans who splintered off from the prequels, or TV shows, or the Disney era. The number of unsold TIEs around after Christmas said that there wasn't much demand in general, and I don't know that a lot of collectors bought this just yet. If you're waiting for clearance, I don't blame you. It's a lower-end-of-decent piece and if I never bought it, I'd not miss it.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Walmart.
