If you're looking to purchase this set just wait. Amazon usually lowers price a good bit within half a year. If you buy this for $70 you most likely will regret it.
Cons: Wing attachments are so insecure that a breath of wind from the front door being opened makes one of the wings drop off. It then tends to jump the rest of the way off the shelf and requires some searching to find the pieces of wing(s) strewn about the room. Makes me want to actually kick it for this. Prior sets (9492 in particular) are much less likely to lose the foils like this one is doing.
Attempting to solve this connection issue by switching sides-no good. Swapping out half the connectors on each side-no good.
Questioning the use of parts 60478 & 63868 in this configuration. Replacing these parts (8 each) with 44301 & 44302. I find it ridiculous to have to spend even MORE money just to be able to set this set on a shelf. Thinking about getting this set for a child to play with? Good luck with that.
Reviews that say the deflector panels are not sturdy, here's a tip. Make sure there is no "white" showing when you put them on. If there is, give it just a bit more of a push and voila! It's very study and super fun to play with too. Be careful of the spring loaded weapons on the front of the TIE Foghter. They shoot far and you'll lose them easily if you're not careful. Luckily, Lego always sends a few more spare parts just in case.
Enjoy this one!
***A word on my photos. I have several set up on my desk so what you see with or around may or may not come with the set. ***
For display purposes, There are only two things I'd change about set:
1. Instead of red flick missiles, they should've included the transparent green one. (I think all of the First Orders' weapons fired green, at least their vehicles, so Lego was off on this one.)
2. Add the black lines on the interior of the Tie-Fighter wing. They did a great job with the external sides, they should've added the detail to the inside flaps. It's a small detail, but would've definitely been appreciated.
Over all I'd highly recommend this if you like SW Episode VII - at the time of this writing, it's on sale for $56, so it's a no brainer.
Complexity: There are 517 pieces in this set, but it’s a fairly simple, straightforward build. Figure roughly an hour to assemble, and be prepared to lend a hand if your builder is very young.
Playability: Ideally a kid would be able to grab this TIE Fighter and Poe’s X-Wing Fighter and run around the room in an epic aerial battle. Unfortunately the wings on this ship tend to fall off (and shatter when they do so). It’s fine if all you want to do is set it down and maybe load in the pilots, and it makes a great display piece, but past that it may be more frustrating than it’s worth.
Aside from it not being very durable, there’s a lot to love about this First Order TIE Fighter set. The design is just fantastic, especially the small details and the way the black and red pieces are arranged, it looks great on the shelf, and the minifigures are fun. It’s just not the best set for kids who actually want to play with their Lego sets though.
