An AFOL. I love talking about, creating and playing with LEGO bricks.

Today we will be looking at the First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter polybag set 30276. This set came out in 2015, has 41 pieces, and was designed for people 6 to 12.

LEGO did a great job with their creative approach in building this TIE/sf space superiority fighter or First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter. Both of these names are a mouthful.

I love mini lego builds. Over the years, I have found TIE Fighters are wonderful ships for these small scale designs. It’s always fun to see how they will be put together.

It’s the little details that bring a ship to life and using an elaborate hose nozzle for the long range communication antenna was a great addition, especially for a tie equipped with a hyper drive.

The best part of this set is the 2x2 inverted radar dish with a Radial Cockpit Window Pattern. As of the writing of this article, you can only find this piece in 7 sets, which is a shame since it is the perfect piece for almost any type of TIE Fighter.

While connecting the wings with an axle 8 Technic piece was a simple idea, I loved the use of the Gear 20 Tooth Double Bevel for the deuterium power cells near the wing. The red 2x2 round plate on the left was a simple but effective way to show this special forces TIE’s unique coloring.

I usually feel these ship only Star Wars polybags are not worth the price to piece count ratio, but the printed inverted radar dish and fun build make this an exception. That being said, you are still paying a lot for only 41 pieces.

Do you want this set?
