Traveling across the 'net I came across mention of an X-Wing fighter that is/was sitting in a mall down in Texas. At the time the person couldn't provide any details but was recently able to get a picture of it (see link above). Here is his description...
Well, it was for a time. It has been gone for some time now, Don't know where it went. Rumor was it was supposed to be part of theme park somewhere. At one time they had a full size Darth Vader also. some helmets and other regalia but I didn't shoot pictures of them back when I had the chance.
So, anybody to know what the heck a full-size model of an X-Wing fighter was/is doing in a mall?

in that pic it looks like the cannon is firing at something.
You're right! I hadn't noticed that before. Most likely it was the flash bouncing off of the glass but at first glance it does look like cannon fire.

The bottom set of wings are missing and the cannons are on the ground to the right of the fighter. My curiousity is piqued on finding the back story to this one.
