You know when I first heard that Target was having holiday special Star Wars Legos available for stocking stuffers I was skeptical since I had already seen the stocking stuffer Legos in Target and they were Racers, not Star Wars. But I was also excited, because having not gotten into Legos until this year, I missed out on the cool Star Wars Legos from the original trilogy, instead stuck with this Clone Wars animated stuff. So I kept my eyes open and BAM found them and then I tried to remember why I was excited. Because looking at the ones that were available did not excite me. They weren't iconic ships, they were representations of ships I didn't know.
Then today I was in a Target Christmas shopping (for toys, because that's all I give my friends because adult presents are expensive) and BOOM, what did I see?
Oh right, that's why I originally got excited.
It's not bad, the minis always suffer from lack of detail because that's the nature of the beast.
Here's a shot next to a minifigure so you can get a sense of scale.
I like this, not a GREAT representation of a tie fighter, but you get it. Although it's a little fragile. I've already lost a piece somewhere in my living room. I'm sure it'll turn up, but it's so tiny that it might not. Although on the bright side, it's not a piece that's immeadiately noticeable.
