LEGO Star Wars Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter Review (LEGO)

LEGO Star Wars Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter
What It Is

Get ready for action and soar into space with Kylo Ren's personal craft in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Check out the LEGO Star Wars version of Kylo Ren's Tie Fighter, model number 75179. Also known as the TIE Silencer and the Sienar Fleet Systems Jaemus TIE V/N Space Superiority Fighter. Fans remember that Kylo Ren had to ditch his command shuttle in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and this is the replacement. Not a bad upgrade, and fans of all the Tie Fighters will recognize details from earlier TIE fighters that go all the way back to Star Wars: A New Hope

This 630-piece LEGO set reproduces this super sleek ship with wonderful detail, and super sturdy construction. Once assembled, this makes a dramatic display piece, but it's also good for play as well. What you can't see in photos or videos is how well LEGO has continued to improve on the design and all the internal pieces that provide stability for the model so fans can actually play with it. There are spring-activated missiles that can be blasted with a touch of the button, a cockpit that opens and four Minifigs--Kylo Ren, BB-9E, a First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Tie Pilot. 

Is It Fun?

Fans of Star Wars will really enjoy the detail and the outstanding design of this LEGO model. This is really a stunning model that was easy to build and took our expert builder about 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete. 

Star Wars Collectors and LEGO fans alike will really want to add this new type of ship to their collections. 

Who It’s For

LEGO recommends this set for builders ages 8-14. It will appeal most to Star Wars fans who are intrigued by this new addition to the collection of ships in the various fleets. 

What To Be Aware Of

This took our expert builder about an hour and 15 minutes to complete, and the directions are super clear and easy. 

Some small pieces may come loose if play with the ship is particularly active. However, those are easily re-attached.
