Hello everybody! I'm TristanReese97 (You probably know that if you took the two seconds to look slightly to the right of this review.) and I haven't really done a review in a while but I'm making a comeback with a worthy set: 9492 TIE Fighter!
This set is marvelous! Truly one of the best Star Wars sets in a LONG time! This set is so well designed that it doesn't really need those two flick-fire missles; it looks so awesome that it could destroy an X-Wing or instantly blind Luke Skywalker himself just by looking at them. Yeah, pretty cool, right? But that's not all! If you laugh at my desperate attempts of humor, I'll throw in four minfigures! No, seriously folks, these figures are great. The TIE pilot is basically the same as the one from the TIE Defender set except for the fact that he has a face! A FACE! And not just any face, it's the I'm-gonna-rob-a-bank face! Can't go wrong there. The Imperial Officer is a great edition to anybody's growing Empire and he is brilliantly designed. No complaints here. The Death Star Trooper is perfect! I kind of wished LEGO had desinged him like this before because he looks like "the cool kid" among my four old Death Star Troopers. The R5 unit is amazing, as well. The fact that LEGO has taken the time to design a whole new head-piece for this specific droid makes me very happy. I screamed like a four year-old girl when I saw it, but in a good way, kinda like looking at a new pony.
And I haven't even gotten onto the TIE Fighter yet...
As I have said, this set is now my most favorite Star Wars set ever. And I have a lot of Star Wars sets. The improvements over the previous rendition are vast and impressive. Most noticabley is the removal of the blue (THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!) and the inclusion of the grey. Pros and Cons, people!
-Figures. All of them are superbly desinged.
-Um, the TIE Fighter. Seriously this thing is great.
-The price is a little iffy. But, really, this is a problem with a lot LEGO sets these days.
Conclusion: Please, PLEASE buy this. You WILL NOT regret it at all. If you're looking for the love of your life, this set is available. Really. Do not miss out on probably the greatest opportunity of your life. Well, this concludes one more review by TristanReese97. You should read my other reviews too. Unless of course you already have. Then that would be pointless. Kinda like these last four sentences.
-Keep on Building!!!
