Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot Unpainted First Shot
This is quite an interesting first shot, especially since its almost exactly its production counterpart's opposite in terms of coloration. The TIE Pilot is actually one of the more--in my experience--frequently seen vintage first shots; but this is certainly the first time I've seen an all-white example. It might have been a white first shot such as this that was used in the creation of the vac-metallized protoypes of this figure that are known to exist. The figure pictured at right is a standard production figure.
