The SWS Reveals Official Image of Kylo Ren’s New Starfighter from The Last Jedi and More

After several toy leaks that gave us a pretty good look at Kylo Ren’s personal starfighter from The Last Jedi (including this one that even revealed its name), the Star Wars Show has officially revealed a CG rendering of the new ship called TIE Silencer. Also in this episode Andi sits down to talk with The Last Jedi cast and director Rian Johnson at D23 and more.



Also The Star Wars Show has more details on Star Wars Land, now known as Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge; a first look at the Ewoks from Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes and more.

    Best episode of The SW Show for a wee while now.

    Nice design, I like it, much more than the shuttle.

    Cool name, cool design. I like it. Clearly an “updated” interceptor but this at least looks like a serious upgrade unlike a lot of the new ships in TFA which felt a bit too similar to 30 year old ships with new paint schemes IMO.

      Agreed. I also love the name. I hope it has stealth capabilities or something like that. That way, these ships can have more of their own unique identity to them in specific capabilities.

    This should be the standard tie fighter in this new era

    • July 20, 2017 at 3:44 pm

      I think that was my biggest complain about TFA. All the ship designs were basically the same. Say what you want about Rogue One and the muddled first two acts, the new designs for the ships were very welcome. I would even argue that it doesn’t make any sense that the new ships were in the old era and there was nothing really new in the 30 years after.

    Btw this is the best looking ship in this trilogy so far

  • July 20, 2017 at 1:23 am

    I love it, i don’t mind the updated TIE fighters, X wings, A wings etc. But i’m glad some new designs are being introduced in TLJ, it’s always nice to see new stuff like this.

    Who was the guy in the outtake at the end?

    • July 20, 2017 at 3:40 pm

      That was Chris Pine aka Captain Kirk in Star Trek or Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman

    Lol I’ve been playing SW Galaxy of Heroes for the past 6 months. Pretty fun once you master patience. My friends and I have been wondering why the hell the new events for this month are all based around Ewoks haha. Guess I’ve got my answer.

    meh… I’ll reserve judgement until I see it front all angles and in action. I’m already not a fan of the new sequel era standard tie fighter. The larger cockpit on those reminds me of the old exaggerated Kenner toys I used to see back in the day for the OT.

    • July 20, 2017 at 10:36 am

      One of the weakest parts of TFA was the new spaceship design, it looks like they are carrying this forward. The new TIE is boxy and clumsy.
      Still, I’m not a toy buyer so they haven’t lost any sales!

    • July 20, 2017 at 11:55 pm

      Those 90’s toys were awful.

      Same era as the steroid’d action figures. UGH.

    • July 21, 2017 at 12:50 am

      The new design is exactly PotF2 – “let’s make something that really, really looks like the OT ship, then slap a bazillion chunky guns on it in random places. I fully expect the next trilogy ships to bear NERF cannons at this rate.

    • July 21, 2017 at 2:31 am

      Anything that resembles the vintage Kenner toys is okay by me.

  • July 20, 2017 at 11:01 am

    Looks fine to me. I was a bit more worried from the earlier shots but this turned out alright.

  • July 20, 2017 at 2:34 pm

    That is a sexy ship. It takes the TIE Interceptor and elongates it a little bit, plus the cool main body of Kylo Ren’s shuttle. That thing is gorgeous.

    • July 21, 2017 at 12:49 am

      It takes the T/I wings and sticks them on an X1 fuselage….that someone sat on apparently.

  • July 20, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    I wish Andi hosted the show alone. Her partner is an annoying choad.

    • July 20, 2017 at 6:32 pm

      so was the last guy

  • July 20, 2017 at 8:06 pm

    I WANT IT!!!

  • July 20, 2017 at 8:12 pm

    I still think Star Wars – A Galactic Experience was the better title for SWLand.

    • July 22, 2017 at 3:48 pm

      I think Star Wars Land is the best name of all. Just call it what it is, right?

      • July 22, 2017 at 5:38 pm

        Because “Land” sound’s very limiting, considering the subject.

        • July 22, 2017 at 6:28 pm

          I guess that makes sense. The Star Wars Galaxy, then. Regardless, Galaxy’s Edge is a fine name, I guess.

  • July 20, 2017 at 8:25 pm

    It’s basically the TIE Avenger from the old EU (but that one looked better). I don’t like the black-red-look-I’m-evil! color scheme at all, they should have made it black with white panels like the other TIE/fo fighters.
