Star Wars Action News - Episode 148

Posted by Bryan | June 24, 2008 at 08:13 PM EDT |

   This 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!
