Star Wars: Get a Look at the New Force Awakens TIE Fighter in Toy Form

The new Force Awakens-era TIE Fighter has been teased in both the official trailers and the Comic-Con behind-the-scenes video, but now we have our best look yet at what’s different. 

Rebelscum managed to grab some pretty awesome photos of the soon-to-be-released toy. Check them about below, along with some light analysis.

As you can probably tell, there are a ton of additional guns on this model of TIE Fighter. The original trilogy-era had two gun emplacements just below the cockpit. This version is packing a total of five, including two that can swivel around to hit targets above and behind the fighter.
