TIE Fighter: Free to a Good Home

By Leslie Horn on at

Apparently a guy in America named Valter had no takers on his original price of $150 / £95 for a 1/3 replica TIE Fighter, because he's lowered the price to a cool zero dollars. So if you happen to be travelling in Salt Lake City, call Valter ASAP to get something totally amazing for absolutely no money.

Here's Valter's pitch from Craiglist:

Approximately 1/3 scale TIE Fighter. 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.

Too bad Salt Lake City is 4,552 miles from London!
