I purchased the Bandai Star Wars 1/72 scale TIE fighter, Advanced TIE fighter, and X-wing fighter together, and I'm going to write a mass review of all three -- basically because I'm lazy and fail to see any purpose in repeating myself three times. So here goes....
These three kits are amazing -- beautifully molded, exquisitely engineered, flawless in their detail. I have no idea how much access the Bandai moldmakers had to the original studio models, but however they accomplished it, they rendered these three iconic vehicles in jaw dropping detail. These kits are designed to snap-fit together, and they do, solidly and securely, and do so without sacrificing any detail whatsoever. Forget the kits made by MPC and Revell back in the late 70s and 80s -- these are of an order of magnitude better in every respect. In a way, they were worth waiting forty years for: the fanboy in me finally has the Star Wars models he always wanted!
A word of caution -- the assembly instructions are a bit confusing, as they are not really linear in their layout and presentation, so it's well worth taking a few minutes to study then before beginning assembly. A nice touch is that the kits all come with two sets of markings, one a set of self-adhesive stickers, probably meant for younger modelers, and the other a full set of conventional decals, for older -- or at least more experienced -- model builders.
If you've ever considered yourself a Star Wars fan, you owe it to your inner fanboy to get these kits!
