The wings attach easily, and as far as I can tell are held in place very nicely. I own an original TIE Interceptor from the 80's, and this release has a few upgrades/changes.
* Instead of stickers on the wings, there is a raised/textured black plastic that is far more realistic looking than the stickers from the original toy.
* With the absence of a battery compartment, the back side of the ship is round as it appears in the movie.
* The cockpit hatch is a single lid that lifts back, instead of two separate hinged lids that fold in from the sides.
* The gray plastic used throughout the wings/body is a lighter shade than the original toy (which was a dark gray).
* As mentioned, no battery compartment which means no lights/sounds. It's a minor downgrade IMO, but some people might be disappointed.
There are also no figures included (not even the pilot). For the price I think this is an excellent deal. And after seeing the improvements, I'm tempted to grab an X-Wing from TRU.
The biggest improvement is the cockpit. For years now Hasbro has been upgrading its vehicle interiors and I can't brag on them enough. It's a great time to jump into the Star Wars hobby.
I also bought this toy because of the vintage packaging. I'm a SW collector of 35 years and still have the original boxes of the original run. I love that design very much and can easily be suckered into rebuying things just to get the box. I couldn't be happier with the new vintage boxes.
I gave 4 stars because of how Amazon shipped the item. The shipping I give 3 stars. It did arrive in a brown outer box, but did not come with a white interior box (as some have received it). Amazon didn't even put in any padding, so the toy's box was sliding around inside the shipping box. Somehow it arrived without a bunch of scuff marks all over the precious vintage images.
Amazon has to know by now these are collector items and many of us buy them for the packaging as well as the toy itself. If Amazon is going to keep being an exclusive provider of collectibles, it has to upgrade its shipping practices.
I ordered a second TIE Interceptor for my son and it arrived inside the white outer box and with padding to prevent movement in the shipping box. This particular purchase warrants a 5-star rating.
The difference was, the first one I ordered was for $35 and the second one was for $50. Perhaps the variation in price is connected to the variation in shipping/handling.Read more ›
Finally, a nicely detailed cockpit interior with an "ejection seat"? I love it! The grey is the proper blue-grey color for Return of the Jedi, and the scale is pretty spot-on which is a rarity among Star Wars ships and vehicles since they're toys, not models. It's still based on the 1982 Vintage Star Wars ship, right down to the "exploding pop off wings", but there are so many updates now to that original tooling in all areas that this ship is ground-up resculpted and new. The cockpit, the physical (rather than sticker) details on the wings, etc.
Hasbro delivers amazing stuff in these vintage retro packaging, and the TIE Interceptor is no different.

Toy is great. The kid is a bit sad it doesn't have projectiles and the action figures from the new series that barely fit their vehicles straight up don't fit this one. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Eric Hawkins

As a collector purchasing what here is described as a new Vintage Collection Tie Interceptor the packaging is as important as is the "new" state of the product. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Jim B.
great item...the only reason i didn't give it five stars is the material the wings are made of.
i like the harder plastic they used to use.
My husband is an avid Star Wars fan, he loved it! Excellent reproduction of the original. Needless to say--it will remain unopened! Read morePublished 8 months ago by Trish Godfrey
