There were plans to develop a Darth Vader's Tie Fighter grip game. The user could enhances their dark side by piloting Darth Vader's Tie Fighter to shoot down X-Wing fighters. However, this toy never made it past the conceptual stage. This prototype is a non-functional painted hardcopy prototype to provide a conceptual look at what this game may have looked like.
