Inferno Squadron TIE Pilot Product Page Updated At Robot Kingdom

Retailer Robot Kingdom has updated their site product page for the Inferno Squadron TIE Pilot which shows a new January 1, 2018 release date (instead of the November 2017 date shown on GamesStop’s product page. (Anything can change of course.) It’s more than likely that this just means “sometime in first quarter 2018” and there is something much bigger coming then anyhow.

  • This is another figure that suffers from gangly legs.

    • Subcoolin

      Lol that’s why they are not shown in the photo !

    • Xo Tica

      And another figure which lacks distribution in Many countries just like R5D4 who sells from £ 50 to £110 here in the UK.

  • Darth Bre

    I miss the days of game related 3.75 sa battle backs. Hasbro could do some great battlefront packs: rebel v tie pilots, rebel human and alien troopers/ commandos etc with the sculpts they already have.

  • Give me this in TVC 3.75 and I’ll buy enough to make the whole squad.

    • Xo Tica

      It will be a lot easier for us who live out of North America to find.

    • shane

      Absolutely, but make the legs straight, can’t tell what’s going on there. But I’d love to see this in TVC.

  • rebelsfangirl

    I hope they make a proper, Iden Versio-n of this figure with a barehead.

    • Xo Tica

      Any E Tailer here in the UK taking any pre orders?

  • Jeffrozup

    Talked with a GameStop manager and they have already seen some of the promotional items for this figure to coincide with the video game release in time for Black Friday and the holidays. I would be surprised if either gets pushed back to next year unless they delay the game to fix any bugs and make improvements.

    • Anything is possible, but Hasbro has rarely coordinated perfectly with the video game makers/release dates for any of their video game inspired action figures in the past. I can specifically pinpoint The Force Unleashed wave from TAC.

      • Paul

        True but wasn’t the release of the black series battlefront stormtrooper coordinated pretty close to the game release? I think it came out before but it was still pretty close.

  • BorgIG88

    Is this going to be the female TIE Pilot Leader from the Trailers? Or is it just a grunt male repaint of the OT TIE Pilot?

  • Adam Marshall

    January for overseas probably. So what’s this bigger and better thing coming first quarter? Lol 3.75 basic wave 4? Lol

  • Fiery Little One

    Yeah, I’d call that a case of overseas store not getting their supply in time for the game’s release.

  • Brian Beck

    still waiting for my ERG preorder over due 2 week now, not really worried about nov.

  • Nick Dickens

    Looking forward to this. 🙂

    • Xo Tica

      What’s the betting that Hot Toys will probably release one . I’ll look at that of I can’t find TBS6 version.

  • I just noticed this. I’m wondering if that is something only Robot Kingdom has as their expected date. Since this is a GameStop exclusive, I would hope they have better information or maybe just getting it sooner. Plus, my of my buddy’s who is a Gamestop Manager shows me an earlier release date that got updated in his system when I picked up my Qui-Gon. It was sometime in October I believe. The strange part was that he saw it when he was looking for updates on my IRG and Lando pre-order to see if the shipments were on the way and he kind turned the screen to show me, but my pre-orders for inferno pilot still said the November 17th or whatever date. It was all around strange.

    I’m still betting on these being out on time, but again, who knows.
