Built like a Rock, yet very fun to fly it around the room – By Nathan on March 9, 2016
I am 28 and I love this thing, it was a great build, way bigger then I thought it was going to be, which is Awesome. My favorite part is that unlike some Lego sets this thing is as solid as a rock, I am pretty sure you could throw it up against a wall and it wouldn’t fall apart. Also it is fun to fly, I find myself always picking it up and flying it around the room. It is a great match to go with Poe’s X-Wing.
Not very durable, but it’s such a great looking Lego set – By Justin G. on March 7, 2016
The First Order TIE Fighter is one of the best-looking sets from the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lego line. This is a new version of the classic Imperial spaceship (with a cool new color scheme and a cockpit that holds two pilots), and features four new minifigures – two TIE Fighter Pilots, a First Order Officer and a Crewman.
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.
A Solid Build. The price is finally right. – By Ryan Wang on February 28, 2016
The set was overpriced when it was first released. The price per brick was just not there. Fortunately it has been corrected by most of major retailers now.
The build itself is a great one for sure. Lego did a great job in its design to improve the connections between wings and the arms. The wings are sturdy than ever. Some people may complain that wings constantly fall off, which is not true. You only need to ensure the joints are clicked when you put the wings on. You can remove the outer parts of the wings to see if they connect correctly.
Not a lot of play features for kids, but it’s the nature of TIE fighters. The minifigures are good, especially the pilots.
Great lego, but the wings kept falling off – By Robert S. on November 26, 2015
Nice looking TIE fighter. this is a great starter. If you don’t have enough money for the big TIE fighter, you should buy this version. I was a little unimpressed because the wings they kept on falling off, so I had to use super glue on it.
Awesome! – By Ian Jansen on November 23, 2015
I didn’t have the problems some of the other reviewers had. Although mine is just for display, it was fun to put together, and the black and red color scheme looks Rad!
Great set. It is a bit over-priced for what … – By C. Hatfield on October 18, 2015
Great set. It is a bit over-priced for what you get, but it’s a bargain compared to Set #75095. The wings only fall off if you don’t have an adult push the wings in until they lock in place. Once you hear a faint click, then this thing stays together very well. It seems more sturdy than the Lego X-wing.
Five Stars – By John White on September 15, 2015
Great replacement for the old Tie fighter! And reasonably priced!
