|Darth Vader TIE Fighter|
Even though this vehicle was seen in only the original Star Wars film, Kenner re-introduced it in 1984 as part of their "Collector Series" of older action figure toys. The box this item came in was very similar to the early Star Wars packaging, but it included a red-and-yellow "Collector Series" starburst in the upper right corner. The Vader TIE was also sold for a short time during 1979 and 1980 with a "Special Offer" cardboard backdrop. Boxes for this rare issue of the toy can be identified by the bright yellow stickers they bear on their exteriors. In the late '90s, Hasbro released an updated version of this vehicle, but since it featured a newly-tooled body, it is not easily mistaken for its vintage counterpart.
First Issued: 1979 (SW packaging)
