1985-86 Line Extension Presentation Binder Page 33 - Imperial TIE Bomber
Like the Skyhopper, this concept is a photocopy of a Joe Johnston sketch from The Star Wars Sketchbook. (The TIE Bomber, which first appears in The Empire Strikes Back, was originally designed for Star Wars as a "TIE Boarding Craft.")

Some16 years after this presentation - and about 25 years after the drawing above was made - Hasbro finally announced that a TIE Bomber would be released in the Power of the Jedi line.
