Posted on August 16th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Don’t know about you, but I always thought Vader’s TIE Advanced always looked a bit boring. Of course, as a Dark Lord of the Sith, he probably had more pressing issues to deal with than thinking about pimping his ride…Still, had Vader found himself o…
