Hello Everybody. This is my first review so go easy on me and I hope I do a good enough job.
Let me start by saying I have never played TOR, I just bought this ship because I loved the look of it. Here are the specs.
Set Name: Sith Fury Class Interceptor
Set Number: 9500
Piece Count: 748
Price: US 89.99 EU 99.99 GBP 79.99
# of Minifigs:3 (Darth Malgus, 2x Sith Troopers)
The minifigures are the highlight of this set in my opinion. The Malgus figure alone is amazing, and here he is flanked by two equally awesome sith troopers.
This one without the chest piece and helmets. The detail is amazing on the figures especially the chest piece for Malgus.
Now for the build, since I didn't take pictures I'll have to just give my opinion. I really enjoyed it and the technic use in the wings was really interesting and fun. The model can be broken down into three main pieces.
Believe it or not the wings are kept in place by only two red pins, one for each wing. Still the ship is very solid and has great swooshing ability.

Here are some pictures of the ship and its gimmicks.
Here are some comparison pictures. I choose the recent Tie and Vader's TIe to show it can seemlessly join there ranks also the x-wing to show the size, it is a small ship for its price which is a definite drawback.
For the final part I took pictures of the instruction booklet as it came with that small comic at the end. Also I do not have the box as I got it on ebay with no box.
Notice the leg printing on the Sith Trooper, looks like TLG left it out.

I really like the set as it is, but the price is horrendous for what you get. It is the same size as 9493 X-wing and costs US 30 more. I know the piece count is more but the price should not be that high. I was lucky to get this before most in the US because of catching the ebay listing from the people who do the brick show. I got it for a much cheaper price without the box which was worth it. I did leave out, there are stickers that add some detail on the inside of the wings. Overall I would recommend this set just for the Mini Figures which really are the highlight. I mean that Darth Malgus is beautiful. If anyone would like to request additional pictures please let me know as I can get them up within a day most likely. I am sure you would like to see some characters with Malgus's chest piece just let me know and if i have the figure i will do it. Thank you everyone. Hope you like it. Also Moderators please add a poll as I did not know how to do it. Thanks.
The cape piece is from what I know new.
Sorry for the one blurry pic but it doesn't affect the size comparison.
