This LEGO ‘Star Wars’ TIE Fighter Ultimate Collector Series Set Looks Intense
Attendees at this weekend’s New York Toy Fair were greeted with a special announcement from LEGO about their latest Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series set: The TIE Fighter. Joining previous releases like the Boba Fett Slave 1 and The Sandcrawler, the new TIE Fighter set is equally impressive and intense, boasting a whopping 1,685 pieces. LEGO is not messin’ around when it comes to their epic Star Wars sets.
For fans of both LEGO and Star Wars, these Ultimate Collector Sets are a real treat. Unlike the basic Star Wars LEGO sets, the UCS series is bigger, better and far more detailed, with tons of pieces to keep the most dedicated Star Wars/LEGO fans occupied for at least an entire afternoon — as they should.
