    Comments: Phenomenally fast and maneuverable, the TIE defender rivals even the legendary A-wing starfighter in its capacity for seemingly impossible twists and dives. Designed in response to the successes of the Rebellionís fighter forces, it is a substantial departure from previous generations of TIE starfighters, incorporating heavier armor, deflector shields, a hyperdrive and far more powerful weapons systems. Unfortunately, it is also prohibitively expensive to manufacture, ensuring that it will never be produced in the same vast numbers as other Imperial fighter craft.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
