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.

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.

tie fighterif you are wondering if this is a normal original trilogy tie even though its from the new movie, it is. it is a little overpriced in my opinion, but a very accurate model. the funny angled pieces look a little sharp. finally, the shooters look good without customization, from the front at least. this set required no customization to meet my strict movie accuracy wants. the tie pilot is original trilogy accurate too. I am not super stoked about the other three minifigs because I haven't seen the movie yet, but they do look cool. go and get it!

TIE/LNI've had almost every iteration of the TIE fighter since it's initial 2001 appearance, so you could say I've grown up with the TIE fighter.
The TIE/LN was the front line starfighter model used by the Galactic Empire from shortly after the end of the Clone Wars, to well after the Galactic Civil War. This starship, as well as the Star Destroyer, Stormtrooper, as well as Darth Vader, was seen as the symbol for the Empire.
This model is a huge improvement over past designs of the standard TIE fighter. The wings are locked into place with a new mechanism, so the wings no longer "jiggle" around when flying. The detail has drastically improved as well since the previous 2012 model, and that model was already well detailed. The cockpit also now includes clips to holds weapons for whomever is flying the ship, a feature new to the standard TIE model. Also a great improvement is how the cockpit canopy and hatch are independent of each other, so you can open one hatch without having to necessarily open the other.
The minifigures included are interesting. You have the standard Imperial pilot, of course, as well as the new Mimban trooper (which has very well designed armor), as well as Han Solo in Imperial Army attire, and Tobias Beckett disguised as an officer with combat apparel.
All in all, the only issue I had with this set was the higher price point. $89.99 CAD seems a little high for a ~500 piece set.
