Give kids a great introduction to the Star Wars Resistance TV series with this LEGO Star Wars 75240 Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter starship construction toy. This detailed model includes a special black and red color scheme, opening cockpit with space to sit the Major Vonreg minifigure inside, plus 2 spring-loaded shooters that are fired by moving the trigger left and right. This building toy also includes General Leia and Kaz Xiono LEGO Star Wars minifigures and an R1-J5 droid LEGO figure, a.k.a. Bucket.
LEGO has released a great many TIE fighter variants in the twenty years they've been producing Star Wars sets. This may seem repetitive to the casual observer but the many nuances of TIE design in the films and shows provide ample source material for some varied and fun builds. Major Vonreg's TIE Fighter stands out in the crowd with its bold red colors, design inspired by but not a copy of the loved TIE Interceptor which debuted in Return of the Jedi, and a not-large but key selection of minifigures. The red is the most outstanding visual element of this TIE. It looks exciting and jumps off the shelf or table once constructed. With any TIE there is a bit of repetition in building the wings but the notched design of these provides some interest when working through the panels, even the fourth time around. As with most current Star Wars models, the construction is rock solid and the TIE can stand up to heavy play. The wing connections are quite interesting and extremely sturdy once in place. It's great to get Kaz and Bucket as two hero leads from the show. Right now there are only two sets based on the Resistance animated show and the selection of heroes is thin, so these are welcome. Major Vonreg, while lacking a face under the helmet, has a nice design and fits the aesthetic well. The Leia design is inspired by her appearance in The Force Awakens and it's always great to add a Leia minifig to your collection. Hope to see LEGO release more sets based on Resistance, especially ones from the hero vehicle selection. With Resistance about to start its final season we will see!
This is a fun build, sturdy, looks sharp, and the "phasers" (or whatever) that it shoots actually fly pretty straight! (I can see why it has a safety/eye-injury warning! ) The instructions are cool in that you build it in sections, and the minifigs are spread out, so you build one minifig in 4 outta 5 sections... paces out the fun! :) I thought the Leia and Kaz minifigs seem like they're "gimmes" for the set (they seem out of place for the scene) but who would turn down extraneous minifigs?? (Oh, it was weird that the Major's head under the helmet was a solid black piece with no face... You can't see thru the helmet anyway, but it's the first time I've seen that! ) I got this for about $55 so I thought it was a great deal!
I find that the red color makes it difficult to travel to worlds where I don’t want to be recognized. However, if you want to make a statement when landing on a Death Star (versus the run-of-the-mill gray, black and white transportation) then this is your ship. And given the tenuous lifespan of Death Stars, this ship will get you safely away fast, reliably and in style.
Even though I am unfamiliar with the origins of this tie fighter, it's a red interceptor, how cool is that?!?&
Great present for any Lego/Star Wars fan. My 11y.o built this in a few hours. As always Lego made a great model. We are happy with this purchase.
This fighter is wicked cool. Easy and fun to assemble and the color scheme is just badass. I'm not really sure about playability it does kinda have an awkward shape to it. I can say it looks good on a shelf. You can never have too many Tie Fighters or X-Wings. I almost like this one more than the Black Ace but it's still a toss up. I of course was not to find this one when it first came out so I did pay a little more for it such is the case with supply and demand. As an AFOL I do enjoy looking at this one so I guess it's worth it.
My kids were quite happy to receive this set as a birthday present... They said they loved the Star Wars Rebels’ series and Major Vonn Reng’s ship was the coolest tie they’ve ever seen. The set is easy to build, sturdy and strong and the figures are OK. I bought ours here at Amazon for 60 dollars. Insane seeing folks asking more than 100 dollars for this set.
Very unique and value is good. As with almost all Lego you pay for what you buy. Another cool star wars spaceship added to the collection
