As far as characters go, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer sticks with the new kids on the block, offering fans our first look at Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), BB-8, and Kylo Ren. None of the returning fan favorites like Luke, Leia, or Han, are anywhere to be seen, but we already know a lot about them, so no big loss. We do, however, get a look at some familiar spaceships. The Millennium Falcon soars around as she does, and while the X-Wings are readily identifiable as such, they definitely got a makeover, though they’re not the only ones. A few TIE Fighters can be seen zipping around the Falcon, but some concept art has surfaced showing off a new redesign that throws a wrinkle into the proceedings and raises some questions.
Check out the leaked image over at Indie Revolver, and what you see is definitely not your standard TIE Fighter. This looks more like something an officer or dignitary travels in rather than one of the small, agile crafts that are out there in the middle of the shit, dogfighting with X-Wings and the like. It just looks bigger and less agile, more like a transport vehicle than a fighter. That said, it still doesn’t look like anything you want to mess with if you have the choice.
