For a time, the MINI TIE Fighter could have been a holy grail of LEGO collecting. In my opinion it was probably the most difficult of all official sets to obtain.

Initially, this set was only available attached to various magazines or through different mail away offers. Unfortunately for Canadian LEGO collectors, these offers excluded Canada. For a long time, Canadian collectors had to either rely on the generosity of their neighbors around the world or resort to the outrageous markup on Ebay. Finally, Paizo Publishing announced that they would make this set available to subscribers of Star Wars Insider. Finally this set came to Canada, but it still wasn't widely available, and unfortunately that really didn't change much.

There are enough of these sets out there now that anyone who wants one can get one, but I've seen prices go as high as $17.99 USD on Bricklink, and $20.00 on Ebay.

Ratings (on a scale of 1 to 10):

Parts: 3/10 (What do you expect for 12 pieces?)
Minifigs: 0/10
Detail: 8/10
Playability: 9/10
Price to parts: 9/10 (Considering it was mostly free originally)
Availability: 2/10
OVERALL RATING: 7/10 (Due to low availability)

All my pictures can be found here.

The funny thing about me getting my MINI TIE was that I had no idea how much commotion it was causing on places like FBTB. Laughing

I got the magazine, but didn't get the set. A friend of mine told me about it so I emailed LEGO. They sent me and my brother one each. Another triumph for LEGO customer service.

Wierd mine came free just by buying the whole set of I think the third mini series( the one with the mini at-te and such).

Now the mini interceptor that's another story.
