- June 24th, 2016Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Cool ships, but not the best valuebfw6a | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI hesitated to buy this set because I haven't seen the Rebels series, and because the A-wing didn't look as attractive as the one in Return of the Jedi (set 75003), which I already owned. But I'm glad I got it. The A-wing is much more satisfying than it looks in the photos, and the firing mechanism is quite clever. I had expected to enjoy the set more for Vader's TIE Advanced, but I actually prefer the A-wing. Not that there's anything wrong with the Advanced, but as with all of the TIE vehicles, the build gets a bit repetitive once you get to the side panels. As other reviewers have commented, the price ($90) is a little high for what you get. If your LEGO dollars are limited, I would prioritize Poe's X-Wing or the Resistance X-Wing (at a lower price point) or the Shuttle Tydirium (higher price point, but 200 more pieces and a really satisfying build).Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter
- June 21st, 2016Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0A great set from LEGOChrisH73 | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set has to be one of the best I have built but for the price it could have been a bit more substantial, £80 has got me a lot more in the past. The ships look excellent and next to my older A Wing (75003) and the Imperial Tie Fighter (9492) they both look the business. Although I'm not a big fan of the spring loaded shooters I am impressed by the way LEGO has built these in this time, Vader's Tie Fighter has an excellent trigger mechanism and although the A Wing's mechanism is a little awkward both show a genius level of design from the LEGO craftsmen. My old (2013) A Wing looks downright basic compared to this new edition and this one has just about the right amount of stickers. The colour scheme also makes this A Wing stand out from the crowd. The mini figure pilot makes this model unique and is a great edition to my collection. The build was a little more complex than the 2013 version but very enjoyable none the less. As I've mentioned already the missile firing mechanism is a bit awkward, ingenious, but awkward and the pilot sits way to far back in the cockpit. The engines and steering foils are one of the best features on this new ship. Vader's Tie Fighter was a pleasure to build and having owned the older version (8017) this version was more compact but overall more realistic and a more seamless build. It would be feasible to expect Vader to have a ship far more advanced and manoeuvrable than the standard Tie so as it sits on the shelf next to the old Tie (9492) it doesn't look out of place at all. The Vader mini figure is excellent and one of the reasons I purchased the set in the first place. The mini figures with this set are first class, I've already mentioned the A Wing pilot and Vader but add in Grand Moff Tarkin and Sabine Wren and this set is unique although I haven't followed the Rebels series they still appeal to me from a collectors point of view. I would have liked one or two more mini figures for the price though. Overall a very good set from LEGO and easily capable of blending in with other sets from the original trilogy, only drawback is the price!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 2 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter
- August 6th, 2016Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Pricey set- but top quality modelsTwoSolitudes | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonPros: This is the best looking A-Wing lego has produced. Fun to build, fun to swosh around. Its a quality model that can be displayed as well as played with. This is also probably the best Vader Tie that Lego has produced (not including the UCS). Also fun to build, solid for display and great for playing. The minifigures are superb too. Not so Pro: The A Wing is a bit sticker happy. I know the prints cost more, but this is not a cheap set to buy. Would have liked to have seen less stickers and more prints. The Vader tie also uses those inverted circle tiles on the inside front. A very strange choice. Cons: The price. At nearly .13 a piece, this is an expensive set for the # pieces you get.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Build Time: 1 daysBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter

Had a little "help" from my 3yr old daughter, and we were both hooked. I got this and couldn't stop building until I was done. My kids will play with it, but for now it's on display. I believe that LEGO is the quintessencial brain toy, so my children can expect to get many more sets.Level of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Build Time: 1 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?35Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter
