Maybe the Museum of Flight could buy this thing and put it next to that replica Space Shuttle when it arrives?
This replica TIE fighter has been generating a ton of buzz online today after it was put up for sale on Craigslist by someone in Olympia, Wash. The plywood replica, about a third the size of the “real” thing, features laser cannons set to fire standard party poppers, according to the listing.
The price: $150 or best offer, assuming it isn’t gone yet.
I called to find out the back story, but haven’t yet heard back. No doubt it was created by one very cool dad.
