He still has 5 joints, and a lot of the folds and creases are similar to the TIE Striker pack-in pilot [FOTD #2,289]. The texture is surprisingly rich, with a wonderful finish and glossy boots. The instrument panel on the chest is decorated differently, as is the helmet - complete with aurebesh too small for me to read with the naked eye.
You have dozens of these by now, but each one has little changes - and this might be one of the most interesting modernized ones as it actually has some changes made to it. Get one or more if you can, mostly because it's a different stage of evolution for the Empire's most expendable flight crews.
Force Link 2.0 Notes: "TIE on line, awaiting orders!" "Engaging a perimeter sweep." "I've got enemy reinforcements on my radar." "Agh, I'm taking heavy fire here!" Blaster sounds. The voice is a good voice for toys - I'm assuming it's not from the movies, but Hasbro cast it well.
Collector's Notes: I got my boxed set from Target. The TIE came from Entertainment Earth.
