Awesome!!!First standard Imperial TIE fighter released for a while and what a beauty!
It's a really solid build where you don't feel the wings are going to drop off.
Design makes clever use of several differant sloping pieces to make up the round shape of the cockpit.
On top of awesome the build the minifigs are excellent. Great characters from the new Solo: A Star Wars Story movie with amazing prints which will give younger uses many hours of fun.
The only downsize is the price which is slightly higher than I would expect for the piece count but then the Star Wars licence doesn't come cheap.

Very good model, however, the value for the absurd price of £64.99 (for only 500-ish pieces) is not very appealing. If it were about £49.99 or £54.99, it would be perfect!

The old school TieTongue-tied to find better words to describe this beautiful model.
Sleek, strong, swish-able, stable, this model hits the sweet spot between gorgeous display model and tough playset. I guess you could say that it’s ruggedly handsome.
Enjoyable to build, you’re taken through a playful angular juggle as you construct the cockpit around various angles. Assembling the twin bow-tie solar arrays are also enjoyable for a first-time experience whilst not becoming tedious to reproduce on the other side. They attach with a satisfying click and you’re good to go!
Inserting the pilot is much easier to do than previous Tie variations as the cockpit opens from the front and top. Also, the clip on the steering yoke holds the pilot in much more securely than previous models. You can feel your enthusiasm mounting just like a trainee pilot fresh out of the imperial academy.
Off you go and the first thing you notice is how well balanced the model is. Tie’s were meant to be light and manoeuvrable and this model holds up to the specifications. You can fly this eyeball with one hand tied behind your back; spinning is an ease and the ship makes a pleasing silhouette and framing when flown.
The model sits very securely on its wings and is easily able to navigate being perched up high on wobbly shelves. I found the first order tie rather bulky compared to this slightly lighter version. The classic black colour scheme makes the wings feel less bulky. Lego have done a great job in bringing out many of the classical design elements of a 40-year-old spaceship design.
I found the price a bit steep, but on a slight store discount you’ll get great satisfaction for your purchase. This one will stay out on display so even though the box might not contain a trove of parts or volume to the model itself, this tie is a definite keeper.
Get it, it’s great.

The emperor would be proudI have wanted an imperial tie fighter for some time now and was about to purchase the version from 2012 when I heard this one was coming out and decided to wait. It did not disappoint. The only other tie I have is Darth Vader's tie advanced from 2009 and although I really enjoy it, the connection from the wings to the body is flimsy and they tend to fall off. That is not the case on this tie as the connection from the wings to the body is very sturdy.
Overall it is fantastic! The only complaint I have is that the missles are red instead of green that the imperial ties had and is even pictured shooting on the box, especially since LEGO has used green missles in previous sets (i.e. Obi Wan's jedi interceptor) and would be an easy swap.
