This 630-piece LEGO set reproduces this super sleek ship with wonderful detail, and super sturdy construction. Once assembled, this makes a dramatic display piece, but it's also good for play as well. What you can't see in photos or videos is how well LEGO has continued to improve on the design and all the internal pieces that provide stability for the model so fans can actually play with it.

Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter is a fun set to build. I enjoyed the color scheming and the spring shoot feature. It's easy to play with while shooting these 'lasers'. The minifigures are great and fits with the set and Star Wars universe. As usual only suggestion is to remove stickers, have the printed elements to be printed on the brick itself would make the money worth it.

Recommendation: meh average 3.9 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

All things considered, this set is not bad, especially amongst the TLJ line. However, it does not really excel: the build looks nice and menacing, but the minifigure lineup isn't great (being too small) and the play value is lacking.

Recommendation: no average 3.3 / 5 by Graham

Of all of the sets in the new movie collection, 75179 Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter is the set that fans will have a good idea whether or not they want as soon as they see the box. Any LEGO Star Wars collector who has built a recent TIE Fighter release will have a good idea of how it goes together, and will know what it can be expected to do. It looks striking, includes some desirable minifigures and can be used to re-enact exciting space battles. There may be a few little design niggles, but as a ship that will probably not be revisited unless it appears in Episode IX, fans of the TIE Silencer design should get it while it's hot.

LEGO Star Wars designers have really found the most effective means of recreating TIE-series vehicles over the last few years and 75179 Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter maintains the high standard we have come to expect of these models. I like the design of the TIE Silencer within the Star Wars universe and this rendition seems to be very faithful to the source material, although though there is a little room for improvement around the cockpit in my opinion.
