5.0 out of 5 stars Piece of art, February 10, 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This set is a piece of art. I was stunned that the wing borders fit on so perfectly, and there is a little piece on the front and back corners of the wing to keep the grey border from sliding off. The struts on the side look amazing and are likewise expertly crafted. The cockpit is not perfectly round but the designers did an admirable job with their choice of LEGO bricks.

I may be the minority, but I also love that it comes with flick-fire missiles. They never get old.

The minifigures are great. The TIE fighter pilot has a face under the helmet, but it's kind of pale since it is printed on a black head. Still fun, though. This is also my first Imperial Officer, which is exciting.

The wings connect to the body a lot better than previous iterations. They don't wobble as much when you're swooshing it around your house, and they don't fall off as easily. The wings are made up of lots of plates, so you have to keep an eye out for pieces coming loose during play, but usually it all holds together well.

The TIE fighter is bigger than I thought. It looks slightly out of scale to both the 6206 TIE Interceptor and 8017 Darth Vader's TIE. But the size of the model makes the price a little easier to swallow.
