i just started reading I, jedi today, and right off the bat, they perfectly describe what i`m guessing is the original design of the droid tri-fighter, only, instead of a droid core, it features the ball cockpit of a tie fighter. my question is, would it be possible to remove the core from an EP.3 tri-fighter and replace it with a tie-fighter core. are they even close to the same size ( my keyboard is messed up and won`t let me type normal symbols, only and stuff)

"are they even close to the same size"
Nope.

Not if you want a 3-3/4" scale vehicle. There MAY be some larger model of the tri-fighter out, but I haven't seen it.

Now, if you are going for more of a model look and not worried about scale, you can find smaller TIE models to mate with the droid model or toy.....

But the only way to get Hasbro TRI-Droid wings on a Hasbro TIE is to split apart the wings from the engines and remount them behind the TIE ball, which would look disproportionate, IMHO.
