There's A Life-Sized Special Forces TIE Fighter At SXSW This Year

If you're anywhere near this year's SXSW — all the way over in Austin, Texas — you owe it to yourself to check out one really cool exhibit: a life-sized Special Forces TIE Fighter, constructed by Project X1.

The group is run by Belgian Garrison 501st Legion members, who have a reputation for building insanely detailed, life sized props: since 2011, they have constructed two other TIE Fighters: a regular one, and the one flown by Darth Vader.

The prop has been installed at SXSW's South Bites Trailer Park, and it's part of a display put on by Disney to promote the upcoming DVD release of The Force Awakens.
