Full-Scale TIE Interceptor is Dressed to Impress
No Stars Celebration (This is the Star Wars Celebration V, if you’re counting such things) would be complete without a few notable pieces from the movies.
Just about any Star Wars event, it will have loads of stormtroopers, Darth Vader look-a-likes, and maybe a jedi or two thrown in for good measure. Of course, the vehicles from the movies have their places too as we see from this full-scale TIE Interceptor that looks insanely realistic.
I hope they had decent security for this event, because I (and the original author of the post) would have been very tempted to jump in and play around in the cockpit for awhile, thus guaranteeing my ejection from the event but never regretting my decision. After all, how many trips inside a real TIE Fighter do you get to take? Not many.
Now, correct me if I’m wrong but the kid posing in front of the ship looks like a Rebel pilot. Someone arrest that traitorous wretch! Nah, I’m just kidding (sort of). But if you want a piece of the action (or not at all, since it doesn’t really move) you can check out the video below where you’ll find some footage of the event including our big TIE friend here. If you’re bored enough, you can also check out some larger than life Star Wars stuff, such as this X-Wing Fighter Mailbox (OK, maybe it’s not larger than life, per se, but still very cool) or this Imperial Walker bunkbed.
