week, the Star
Wars Action News hosts are seeing red! They're red hopping
mad, you might even say. Why? Because the new exclusive TIE
Fighter "has got some red on ya" (to quote Shaun of
the Dead). Yes, someone graffitied a big red garish Rebel symbol
on the latest "big wing" TIE Fighter re-release, and
they jacked up the price too, $53 at Entertainment
Earth. Is this too much for the 4th release of this mold?
Have we now got more TIE Fighters than the compliment of a Super
Star Destroyer? Find out on this week's show!
