One Third-Scale TIE Fighter for Sale on Craigslist


In what is perhaps the greatest Craislist posting ever, a poster in Olympia, Washington, is offering their model TIE Fighter for sale. For a mere $150, you and the shorter stormtroopers in your household can pretend to hunt down galactic rebels from the comfort of your own octagonal cockpit. Now who’s up for a road trip to Olympia to pick this puppy up?Monday, the anonymous seller posted this listing to the Seattle area Craigslist board:

Have the coolest toy in your neighborhood! 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.

Hmm, I happen to stand just a little over five feet, and an 8x8x8-foot TIE Fighter would look rather nice in my living room. I imagine that at $150, this particular TIE Fighter has already been snapped up, but if the seller is willing to make a few more of these at a similar price point, I might find myself sitting inside the model cockpit making pew-pew noises and frightening my dog with party poppers all day.
