TIE Fighter: Free To A Good Home

Apparently a guy in Salt Lake City named Valter (Darth Valter?) had no takers on his original price of $US150 for a 1/3 replica TIE Fighter, because he’s lowered the price to a cool zero dollars. So if you’re swinging by Salt Lake City on business in the next few days, call Valter ASAP to get something totally amazing for absolutely no money. And then bring it to me.

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.

Solve the problem of the ocean between you and the US and it’s yours!
