This official X-Wing v Tie Fighter Paper Light Shade brings a space battle to any bedroom. The versatile Rebel Alliance X-Wing is a starfighter that balances speed with firepower. Armed with four laser cannons and two Proton Torpedo launchers, the X-Wing can take on anything thrown at it. The iconic Tie Fighter, the dagger-shaped Tie Interceptor and the explosive-laden Tie Bomber were the unforgettable symbols of the Imperial fleet. The terrifying roar of a Tie's engines would strike fear into the hearts of all enemies of the empire. Recreate the amazing dogfight battle scenes between the Rebel Alliance and the Imperial fleet with this 12 inch paper light shade...

There are a number of Star Wars paper light shades out at the moment and I have to say that on balance I prefer the one that is designed to look like a Death Star. I wasn't overly impressed by this dog fighting X-Wing vs Tie Fighters scene, sure it looks good, but it's hardly something to get exited about.

I've never really been a fan of these style of paper lanterns. I think it stems from living in student accommodation in the '90s with them in every room. They're paper thin (obviously) and a fantastic collector of dust.

The light shade measures 12 Inch tall x 12 Inch wide and for the Star Wars fan that already has a Death Star paper light shade in their bedroom, this might make a nice addition to your spare room. It's also ideal for those who like to be a little more subtle with their Star Wars appreciation.
