Now I know why the Empire stuck with plain TIE fighters

As they say, the TIE/D Defender's high cost was one of the major obstacles for adoption by the Imperial Navy.

Here, the LEGO version (coming out in 2010) is priced at $49.99. Which is a pretty bad deal, even for a 304 piece Star Wars set. Maybe Lucas is upping the price for the license?

I'm also upset with image showing two lasers coming from the cockpit. Come on people, it only takes two minutes to read the Wookieepedia page and realize that there are two lasers on both of the bottom panels, and two ion cannons on the upper panel. The weapons on the cockpit module should be the warhead launchers. Tsk, Tsk.
