    Why so expensive?

    I got this set for my birthday and man is it fun to play with. Both ships are iconic from the original trilogy, and they both have some fun mechanisms. First lets go through the minifigures: A-wing Pilot: The A-wing pilot is nicely detailed, with some gold paint on the helmet and a sand blue suit. It's also nice to get an anonymous female pilot for once. Sabine Wren: Now, I'm not familiar with the Star Wars Rebels TV show, so I don't really know who this character is. But her hairpiece pretty cool, so yeah. She has a decently detailed torso and two blasters. Grand Moff Tarkin: Tarkin is a pretty good minifigure. He has a tan officer suit and that nice little badge indicating his rank. He has the somewhat new Dr. Who hairpiece, and two pretty good expressions. Darth Vader: Vader comes with the same newer helmet mold(s) and head that were in the Death Star Final Duel, which is appropriate. He has different printing than that version(For the torso, at least). The torso features some robes hanging over the mechanical details on his body. I don't know how accurate this is to the show, but I personally like it better with just the mechanical "greebling". He also has a newer style of a softer cape, which keeps the cape from crinkling when you put him in his TIE advanced. Overall a nice minifig. Now to the builds. The A-wing has a new design and color scheme of green, grey, tan and yellow. The fins are new pieces, and are stickered, like a lot of the details on the ship. There is a really cool action feature built into the starfighter. When you pull back the middle section of the whole thing, it fires two spring-loaded missiles, which is very fun. There are two rubber bands to keep the middle from sliding back and forth on it's own and also for tension. There is a stickered console, a nice engine, and two fun little cannon builds on the sides. Darth Vader's TIE advanced is, in my opinion, the jewel of this set. There is a control stick in the cockpit, along with a nice seat for Vader. The cockpit can open from the top and the front. There are two buttons right behind the top hatch. When pushed down, they fire spring-loaded missiles. That is fun so you don't have to reach under the ship and push the missiles yourself. Each wing is identical and are nicely designed. There is an angled piece that keeps each wing from folding in too far. The back of the ship looks pretty awesome. It is a little bit shorter than the real thing. There are a couple of stickers for the engines, but not nearly as many as the A-wing. It is overall a big improvement on the last version of this from 2008. Now we get to the one big con of this set- the price. Being a Star Wars set, it is expected to be expensive. But $90 USD for 704 pieces?? That's just wrong. That's saying the A-wing is $40 and the TIE advanced is $50... and that is definitely not right. But other than the price, this set is awesome. Both ships are fun to play with, as are the minifigures. This is definitely one of my favorite new sets.

    Buyer Beware !!!!!!!!!!
    Purchased for: Self
    I am sixteen and do work for my friends and family. I work hard for the money that I make and it takes a lot of work to earn $100. This set is definitely not worth the money, at the normal rate of lego prices this set should be priced at $69 not $89. For $89 or $100 with tax this set should have been huge. With this set you get a 2 tiny ships. This is not my first lego set. I have over 200 lego sets and by far this is the most disappointing. DO NOT BUY THIS SET!!!!!!! If you want a lego set that is worth your money buy the poes xwing or the resistance xwing.

    Thank you for review we always value what our fans have to say. We are sorry that you feel the price of the set is too expensive. When our designers design a licensed set there are particular molds and bricks that have to be made this rising the cost of some of our sets. In this set there are three minifigure redesigns, Grand Moff Tarkin, Sabine Wren, and A-Wing Pilot; and with the redesigns we have to make molds. We do hope that you enjoying the new minifigures that did come with the set. Sabine is from season 2, and we are excited about the new A-Wing Pilot from the Phoenix Squadron. We are really excited about the redesign of Grand Moff Tarkin since he hasn’t been redesigned since he was in our beloved Death Star 10188. Thank you again for your review, we will make sure we pass along your feedback to our awesome Star Wars™ design team. Hearing what our fans have to say about sets and pricing only makes us a better company. Without fans like you we wouldn't be the company we are today.

    For years I've been waiting to get a TIE Advanced x1, but I always miss it for some reason, but not this time. The build itself for both ships was relatively easy, except for the stickers, and the play-ability is very high. The minifigures included are near perfect, except that Sabine doesn't come with a Mandalorian helmet bearing her season two design, and I'm not a big fan of Tarkins suit and hair colour. Vader is by far the best minifigure here bearing his new design )which I'm a huge fan of), and his silky new cloak (I'll admit, the cloak is my favourite part). The scaling is a bit wacky though. In Universe, the TIE Advanced is longer than a TIE/sa Bomber, but compared to TIE Bomber model from 2003, it is indeed shorter. Not too much of an issue, but i'm just throwing it out there. The A-wing is an "okay" build. Nothing too special about it except for the folding fins on the back (a feature which i'm not too fond of). It's also a bit pricey because "TIE" and "Vader" are in the set name (trademarking sucks for the consumer). Aside from what's said above, this is a great set with a great amount of play-ability.

    As my first review this might not be super detailed but... 1. Vaders Tie is amazing in my opinon, the build was fun and simple. Vader minifugre is awesome as is every other vader that has come out! I use it to display so play ability is probably good but i dont know first hand. 2. A-wing is cool as a display piece, i wish it was a little bigger. The A-wing pilot figure is very nice though. It does have a very nice action feature to fire missiles which i though was a fantastic idea! 3. Over all i think its pretty fantastic Lego gave us 2 ships in one box. price wise ive heard people not agree on the price per piece but for me if i like the set ill buy it. This was my first Vader's tie so i had to jump on it
