His other Lego fighters are pretty sturdy-- You can play with them and crash them and pop pieces off to pretend they're damaged without having too much work figuring out how to replace them-- But I think this TIE Fighter is a little different then, say, the X-wing. The x-wing is a sturdy beast! Even with my son's own modifications (he likes to have a gunner pointing back, since that is where the enemy fire always succeeded in the first movie), we really haven't had too much difficulty with it. That can't be said so emphatically about the TIE Fighter, though it's still a really cool set!
I know someone else commented on another's review that if you want to play with them, you should buy the non-lego play sets for Star Wars-- but the beauty, to me, is that with lego-- you CAN pretend to battle them and have "real" damage. You can also modify them to be better fighters, as my son did with the x-wing. Legos are, after all, toys-- not models.
So... with that in mind-- The TIE Fighter is certainly a more fragile lego toy then the other Star War ships. The side "wings" (or whatever they are) are big and are made of smaller pieces, kept flat, so of course they aren't the most durable structures. I plan to try to get some larger black flat pieces to sort of reinforce the seams a bit. Though this will be less flat, I think it will hold up better. They also attach to the actual "ship" (the little ball in the middle)in kind of a fragile way... and I really don't know how they could've done that better-- But it hasn't been too much of an issue. The only thing is-- when something does "pop" in that area, a major reconstruction is necessary to replace things. (But this is also partly because my son tries to do it himself without consulting the building guide again...)
OVERALL-- it is a pretty faithful reproduction of the ship from the movies, and is very cool-- But if you are getting this for a younger kid that will actually want to battle with it, be sure he knows that it's a more-fragile construction then the other models. My son went into this knowing that (we read reviews before we ordered) and while it's caused a bit of frustration, I still think he is very happy with it and does not regret ordering it! (BTW-- my son is 8)
When I ordered this, it was $5 cheaper then at the lego site. Even so, I still can't give a lego star wars kit 5 stars but that is ONLY BECAUSE OF PRICE. I know a lot of design must go into these things and I don't want to undervalue that aspect-- but in reality, we are talking plastic bricks. When ANY lego set costs 300 bucks (the death star) and it's really just a bunch of plastic bricks, I can't help but think it just may be over priced....
At the end of the day, way too quick a build, but it looks fantastic. Would love to have a squadron of these, but at the price point, that'd be hard to do.
- Good price per piece for a SW LEGO set
- One of the best, if not the best, TIE Fighter builds for a regular (not including UCS) LEGO. They have made several over the years.
- The cockpit is nice, and has a unique canopy piece. Nice the way it opens.
- Sturdy construction, so it can be swooshed without falling apart.
- Minifigs included with the set are very nice
- The colors of the LEGOS used for the model are nice looking.
- Looks good on display
The instruction booklet was easy to read, contained large, helpful illustrations, and was just plain nicely put together. I seem to remember booklets being a lot more vague and smaller back in the day. The pieces themselves were all there (In fact, I had a few extra small bits) and fit together exactly as intended.
I think this probably took me somewhere around an hour and a half, perhaps two hours to build, and that was without any particular focus being put into it since I wanted to savor the build. The end result is a good size and displays very nicely. I personally like to pretend it is sitting in the hanger being serviced by the pilot and astromech while the guard guards and the officer supervises.
Overall, it was a spectacular bit of fun and I'd recommend the set to others.
Just as a note, this does not contain a Darth Vader figure in it. I could have sworn the picture showed him in it, but it's actually a stormtrooper.
