7263 TIE Fighter Review

Parts: 159

Figs: 2

Price £20.00 (not sure)

My 2nd review today!

This set came out about the same time as the ROTS sets and included the first minifig to have a LUL.

1. Box & Manual

This is the front of the box, it has a try me slot for the LUL Vader.

A close up of the try me slot. Luckily I got mine form Argos so no little kids have been playing around with it.

The manual cover. I'm not quite sure why it has a pic of the figs on the front but it doesn't deface it so I don't mind.

Random manual shot.

2. General set and figs

The contents of the set.

The minifigs. A normal TIE pilot and the first ever LUL fig DV. (Also my only LUL fig)

No helmets.

The LUL is made of 3 parts.

3. The TIE Fighter

Just a pic of it.

TIE pilot sitting in the cockpit. By the way the hinge brick is the wrong color it is supposed to be grey.

The cockpit shut. I wonder why TLC never printed those cockpit glass things correctly.

Top plate has some nice printing.

5. Overall

Build: 5/10 very repetitive...well the ships symmetrical!

Minifigs: 4/10 1 TIE pilot which is okay but a LUL Vader he can't even fit in the ship.

Design: 6/10 strong but the wings are all wobbly if that makes sense. I don't like the blue either.

Parts: 6/10 Lots of blue grills thingy's not much else but it got 6 because of the wings plates.

Price: 5/10 Could have been more expensive. At least it had 2 figs.

Playability: 1/10 Can't do much as a stand alone set.

Overall: 4/10 There just isn't enough here. It could at least have a better color scheme and instead of DV it could come with a Stormie like the old one did.

Thanks for the review.

I actually like the older Tie better, since it had a stand for the Tie.

Not really a fan of the LU figs either.

No matter - a Tie is a Tie and this is a must have fighter for any LEGO SW fan out there.

Never can get enough Ties, except the Tie Advanced or Vader's Tie...they don't rock... :thumbdown::thumbdown:

Great review! Really shows off the main aspects of the set.

Wish I had picked up a TIE when they were around...
