This Lego set has 212 pieces and the instructions are in clear step by step instructions. This set only comes with a one TIE pilot mini figure. He is sleek black and does not have a face. Which isn't a big deal, but it would be nice to have a face on him.
The cockpit open and the instrument panel folds down. The TIE pilot can easily fit inside. The model is fairly fragile, especially the wings. But if they do fall off they are easy to put back together.
I really don't see much play value with this piece since it doesn't do alot expect open the cockpit door. If you had another ship to play together with then that might be better.
The Lego set is pretty basic but it is fairly realistic to the picture on the box and for the most part it is durable. I just think children would get bored with it pretty fast.
It does make a great addition as a collector's item though.
