A Seattle-area dad is offering what might be the Craigslist deal of the century: a 1/3-scale TIE Fighter with a cockpit big enough to sit in for a mere $150.
Here's his sales pitch for the model starfighter:
Have the coolest toy in your neighborhood! 8x8x8 feet but breaks down into 5 pieces for easy transport in a pickup or can haul partially assembled (except for the top half of the wings) on a trailer. Wheeled casters make it easy to move once assembled. Laser cannons are set to fire standard party poppers. Well built out of 3/4 plywood with the wings sheeted in cardboard. Tested to hold over 300 pounds. Cockpit is 38 inches by 38 inches and my 5ft tall son comfortably sits inside.
Let me repeat part of that for emphasis: laser cannons are set to fire standard party poppers.
Okay, I'm sold.
Why would anyone part with this Imperial Clubhouse of Awesome for 150 smackers? Perhaps the family decided to upgrade to a TIE Advanced x1. The hyperdrive really makes all the difference.
