There is perhaps no space fighter from the Star Wars franchise more popular than the TIE fighter. First appearing in the original Star Wars film, Episode IV - A New Hope, these single pilot fighter vehicles are a vital part of the Imperial fleet — so much so, that even Darth Vader himself piloted one. Now thanks to Lego Star Wars and this 1,685 piece set, you can build your very own TIE fighter.

As you can probably imagine due to the huge number of pieces that come with this product, it’s quite a detailed recreation of a TIE fighter.

Die-hard fans of Star Wars are going to absolutely love this large-scale representation of the iconic TIE fighter. Thanks to the sheer number of pieces included, you’re able to see each and every minor detail of this fan favorite space fighter. The TIE fighter has been featured in some of the most classic battle scenes in the entire Star Wars franchise, and now you’ll have the opportunity to recreate some of your favorite scenes.

Who Is This Product For?

This Lego Star Wars product is definitely intended for Star Wars series die-hard fans who root for the bad guys to win. As mentioned above, TIE fighters form the backbone of the Imperial fleet, as they’re often housed aboard Imperial Star Destroyers and other battle stations. The only thing that we should mention is that it’s recommended to only purchase this product for kids aged 14 and older — there are a lot of pieces (a whopping 1,685!) to put together with this one.

What’s Included?

On top of the 1,685 Lego pieces required to build the replica TIE fighter, this product also comes with an exclusive TIE fighter pilot mini-figure with an included blaster pistol. Not only that, but you’ll also be getting a convenient display stand to mount your space fighter on, complete with a fact plaque that covers all of the important facts and figures in regards to TIE fighters. And last but certainly not least, considering the number of pieces required to build the space fighter, you’ll also be getting a set of instructions that will show you exactly how to assemble your TIE fighter.

Overview of Features

This Lego Star Wars TIE fighter features plenty of included features for Star Wars fans to get excited about. With 1,685 total pieces, you’ll be able to create a large-scale TIE fighter replica, complete with a working top entry hatch that can open and close. There’s also an included TIE fighter pilot mini-figurine with a blaster pistol.

Once you’ve finished putting your TIE fighter together, you’ll be able to recreate all of your favorite battle scenes from any of the movies that it’s appeared in — Episode IV - A New Hope, Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. As with all Lego Star Wars products, this TIE fighter set is compatible with any and all other Lego Star Wars products — your imagination is the only limit when it comes to creative building!

When you’re done recreating your favorite space battles and you want to keep your TIE fighter safe from the Rebel Alliance, you can mount it on the included display stand. The stand comes equipped with a nifty fact plaque that might even teach you a thing or two that you didn’t know about TIE fighters as well.

How to Get the Most Out of This Product

In order to get the most out of your Lego Star Wars TIE fighter 75095, we highly recommend following the included instructions. There are 1,685 pieces in total required to build the TIE fighter. It’s not exactly an easy product to look at and build without any assistance!


If you’re more of a fan of the Rebel Alliance than the Imperial forces, then you just might be more interested in this Lego Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter set instead. Considering that TIE fighters were designed to engage in dog fights with the Rebel Alliance’s fleet of X-Wings, it makes for a perfect counterpart indeed.


Thanks to the level of detail and all of the great additional extras that are included with this Lego Star Wars TIE fighter set makes it a no brainer to get this for any die-hard Star Wars fan — especially for any fan out there who lean more towards the dark side of the Force. The fact that its part of Lego’s Ultimate Collector Series is the icing on the cake as well. This is one of those sets that will only gain in value as time goes on. It truly is the perfect gift for the Star Wars fan in your life!
