#3: Star Wars The Black Series - First Order TIE Fighter Pilot

As big a fan as I am of the look for the Imperial forces, the Imperial TIE fighter pilots were never my favorite look. But I like the look of the First Order version a lot better. Probably because the helmet isn't so oversized, and looks even more like a Stormtrooper helmet. It also has what looks like a fold down visor, like on modern fighter pilot helmets. The Resistance pilots are still cooler looking, but at least in this generation, it's not by such a large margin. I'm glad this was released as a single figure, because the only other option for a TIE pilot would be the TIE fighter, which I have no room for. The TIE pilot is armed with the same blaster pistol that the Stormtroopers carry, although without the white markings, and no place to holster it.
