Ooh, another micro scale SW set, good stuff. Can't say I'm a fan of this one though, and it's all down to the cockpit. The windshield is too clear to be visually effective (a print may have helped, or even a darker tint to the plastic), and the top is lumpy (a solid grey version of the windshield construction might have helped here, I think).

Of course, it's only a tie. It's not like they had one shot at making this ship and missed.

It is shaped like a bow tie. Coincidence? I think not!

Now how many do they really need to make of this design? 50,000 more cause they’re AWESOME.

A TIE fighter is always a TIE fighter... Micro, UCS, regular minifig scale... Iconic!

Oh, hey, I own this one! I wonder how many micro TIEs there are.

I seem to own this too. Pretty sure I've even built it. But it's just one out of approximately 60,000 other tie models, so I don't really remember :)

I have this one, but did not remember it was released so long ago. Years are going fast... Still displayed in front of the big one, old Tie version 9492. I still hesitate to grab the newer 75211 which looks like a good upgrade.

Oh my goodness three in a row! I remember picking this up because anything LEGO Star Wars was still kind of a novelty and I was having the time of my life finding and buying my two favorite things mashed into a single thing!

Good polybag.

Anyone else miss the days of blue on TIE Fighters? I know the gray is more accurate, but for a toy, it makes them look really bland and unexciting. #bringbacktheblue

I believe this was the last blue TIE Fighter. I like both the blue and bluish-grey designs. The old TIEs had a pop of color but the new ones are more accurate.

I've got loads of these - around 2012 I stumbled across a ton of them in Tesco, at 20p each!
