[75095] UCS TIE Fighter revealed!

 UCS TIE Fighter, on Eurobricks

 

After several months of rumours, we’ve finally got the first official images of the new UCS set, a TIE Fighter!  It will be available in May, and I’m sure that it will be a ‘First day’ purchase for many fans.  Initial impressions are that it’s clearly quite a sizable model; it measures 18.5” (47cm) high, 12” (30.6cm) long and 12.2” (31cm) wide, and follows the recent trend of mid-range price points (US $199.99, CA $229.99, DE 199.99€, UK £169.99 & DK 1799.00 DKK).  It comprises 1,685 parts and uses an interesting technique to create the main sphere.  The box artwork is superb, and is on a par with the UCS Slave 1, which recently set a new standard for Star Wars sets.  Overall, I’m quite impressed with it, but the display stand looks a little less refined than usual, and the use of blue connector pins doesn’t help!  Head over to the Star Wars forum and join in the discussion.
