The LEGO Star Wars TIE fighters were the workhorses of the Imperial Navy. With no shielding and little armament, the only thing these fighters had going for them was their speed and maneuverability in space. Regardless, these fighters were often thought of as flying coffins, and pilots rarely made ace. In an attempt to create a better fighter with longer living pilots the TIE Interceptor was developed. More powerful and faster, the TIE Interceptor could to blow the TIE out of the water, or out of the vacuum, rather.
Able to out fly an X-wing and almost beat A-wings, the Tie Interceptor was an elite craft. Following the effectiveness of the curved solar collection panels Darth Vader’s Tie Advanced x1, the Tie Interceptor used arrow-shaped solar panels to decrease drag while increasing speed and visibility for the pilot at the same time. The P-s5.6 twin ion engines feature an advanced ion-stream projector, allowing the pilots to make phenomenal combat maneuvers. Wingtip mounted laser cannons make these fighters heavier armed than the regular TIEs, thought the wingtip cannons do seem to be ripped off the X-Wing design. These laser cannons and the advanced targeting systems made them even deadlier in the hands of an expert pilot. The hawk-like visage brought fear into the hearts of Rebels, furthering the Emperor’s campaign of terror and fear. Released in 2006, this set contains the TIE Interceptor and the TIE pilot.
Part of the Star Wars Classic collection, the LEGO 6206 version of the TIE Interceptor is very accurate to the actual fighter. A model of the latter version of the Interceptor, this model includes even the latter cockpit mounted laser cannons for a total of six cannons. In the opening and realistic cockpit a LEGO Star Wars minifigure pilot could thread the Interceptor like a needle through battle, regardless of the battlefield. The blue trim will make it look even sleeker to intimidate enemy pilots, and just that much more stylish when sitting on the rack in a Capital ship. The TIE Interceptor pilot wears the black suit of the Imperial Starfighter corps. Wearing his own life support, the pilot is stuck in the bulky helmet and tubes. The pilot doesn’t even have a real face, using instead a solid black head to give the helmet a shiny visor look.
Made of 212 pieces, this fighter takes its place among the best of the LEGO Star Wars craft. Recommended for builders age 7 to 12, this nice looking craft that isn’t too complex, enabling younger builders to have fun while being challenged. Younger builders might have some difficulty with the mechanisms that keep the wing at their angles, but older builders will have no difficulty. An amazing set with a lot of playability value, the set is more fun when it is put with other LEGO Star Wars starfighters.
Screaming through the vacuum of space comes one of the most fearsome fighters ever built. Called squints by the Rebel Alliance hotshots of Rouge Squadron, this fighter is out for blood, rebel blood. Will the pilot become an ace, or will he strike out in his first engagement? Or is the pilot a Rebel operative in disguise on a secret mission? Only you can decide his fate, so get flying!
