I'll still probably pick one up, but aside from the head and the hands, the pistol holster and Lightsaber hole it's the same figure as the Snowspeeder Luke they just issued last year... Mr. Green

True that... But it would go so nice with my TRU Swamp crash X-wing.

What a coincidence, so did I. Lol I was just going to post that those were on shelves.

Hey Gil, does your TIE Pilot in box one not have widow's tears? Mine does, I think I got a mispack. I noticed the one on the back of the box doesn't have them and now I see yours doesn't either.

What are the "widow's tears" markings?

Neat. So they're finally out, eh? I'll have to check out Toys 'R Us this weekend.

I actually already have the Y-Wing and B-Wing pilot from the sets. I got them on Ebay a week or two ago, and they're sitting on my desk now. Razz
I was going to post some pictures and brag about it. Darn, guess I waited too long. Heh heh.

The gray lines that go from the eyes down the face on the TIE pilot on the bottom. That's what they call them over at the Jolly Rogers.

Clearer pic of what I'm talking about:

Thanks for the explanation. Smile

Yeah those are one of the handful of TIE pilot marking variations from the OT.

The TIE pilot that comes with the B-Wing and X-Wing pilots has the lines in Gil's picture, they're just hard to see. Look closely and they're there. Just on the TIE pilot that comes in the set with the B-Wing and X-Wing pilot, though.

Here's another picture that Gil posted earlier from Rebelscum.com...



And yes, the helmet on the B-Wing pilot figure is as loose as it looks. Hasbro should've made the hair on the figure a little bigger or something, because the helmet just flops around. Razz
And the helmet for the Y-Wing pilot is almost too small, or the head is too large, because the helmet actually stretches when you put it on the head, and looks a little... weird.

Mine has the "tear" markings, it just looks like the hose keeps going in the picture.

The only orange pilot in the set is the one Rebel Pilot sculpt I truly hate! Hasbro, please break that mold!

The B-Wing helmet is as loose as you say, and he really has to be the palest guy in the fleet! Get a tan Bro!
Why do the B and Y pilots all lean to the right when standing up?

"Tell me where this hose gets connected to or the Droid gets it!"

Because B-Wing pilots and Y-Wing pilots usually have a bit too much to drink before flight. We really like to party, you know. Plus the gals dig us heavy weapon dudes. Smile

You can order these online as well. That's weird that you never see them in your area!
