That's pretty cool! Unfortunately I just renewed my subscription about a month ago, so this offer probably won't apply to me. I'll give the Fanclub a call anyways just to check...

I can't believe that Lego has caught the Exclusive bug. Oh well, maybe they will resell it in 2004, after all, it took us two years to get a normal TIE fighter

Pretty hefty price tag for the nonsubscribers too... for such a small set. images/icons/frown.gif

Me being scared to ask fbtb.net, I decided to ask the greatest forum on the net. I've heard rumors, do you get the tie for joining or having a subscription to Lego Magazine? If so I hope to be recieving one. But I think its stupid that if you just now join, you get one while the old members get nadda. Help here? images/icons/frown.gif

11-23-2002, 02:27 PM
I heard a rumor that it was to be given out at random, but it would sweet if all Lego subscribers got one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed either way.

11-23-2002, 02:34 PM
I'll do what your doing, and if I don't get one,i'll sit in my bathroom for the rest of my life sobbing... images/icons/grin.gif

i got one off the front of star wars magazine in the UK.

Thanks for the heads-up Philip! I jumped right on it too, and it looks like one is headed my way. Cool! I've been looking forward to these fun little mini sets!

Yeah, they had it on the announcements board here, "Free Lego Mini TIE Fighter" and I went straight there. Thats pretty awesome. I think those mini Lego sets are a great idea, not to mention you get one free!

POO DOO!!!!
I was all geared up and filling in the form when i read that it was for US residents only!

I mean, its free STAR WARS stuff. It's a pain that i can't even get free stuff just cuz I live in Canada. images/icons/frown.gif

Ok, Im having trouble. Every time I go to starwars.com, go to the story, and click the link to sign up, it brings up a window saying "Sorry, this offer only available through starwars.com"

Any suggestions?

If I cant get it to work, is there someone out there willing to register for me, I can just email you my information

If you aren't already a member of starwars.com (and why aren't you! images/icons/grin.gif ), you'll have to sign up there first, then try starting over from scratch from the Rebelscum news link and just follow the links. Looks like they're still available, it said mine would be on the way.

I'm a member, and I am signed in; I've tried about every method from clearing my cache, logging in, etc, nothing is working...... I have a feeling it has something to do with the proxy servers from my ISP (crazy crappy satellite internet). Ill try dial up on another comp and see if it works......

Got it on another computer w/ dial up (what a SLOW connection.... the pain, the pain of it all!)

Im going with the theory that the problems with the proxy setup on my computer caused it. For some reason, all of the software on my computer doesn't understand that there is an internet connection present, even my ISP update software doesn't recognize a connection....

For those considering it, satellite is NOT worth the money. Right now its the only option other than dial up though images/icons/frown.gif Our town will be getting DSL soon though!

BDW, try resigning up to starwars.com, just like I did. It should work for you. I think that there are still some TIEs left, and it would suck if you missed out on one just because of your internet services or something like that. Hopefully the other countries will get the same oppertunity to get a TIE just as we did...

Anyway, I had them send me a new password and that didn't work either! I had registered under my second e-mail address an had the same problem with that one! Finally I had them send me ANOTHER password and that time it worked! Not sure what the deal is and there is no kind of support that I could find. Anyway, it all worked out and my mini TIE is on the way images/icons/smile.gif

They are out. Scalpers probably ordered more than one images/icons/mad.gif . Maybe another chance to get one will arise...

11-27-2002, 07:46 PM
GAH! I hate scalpers! images/icons/mad.gif images/icons/mad.gif Arg...now there will never be a complete collection for my mini-line. If any lego scalpers are reading this, THANKS A LOT!! images/icons/mad.gif

Diddly_Squat
11-27-2002, 08:06 PM
Really! And to think I was about to order a second. I read on the FBTB forums that some people said that they ordered no less than four! images/icons/mad.gif images/icons/mad.gif images/icons/mad.gif

11-27-2002, 09:53 PM
Hey, for all of you guys that didn't get a TIE, once I get mine, I will write down a list of the parts so that you can make your own images/icons/smile.gif . That should make all of you guys happy, and (hopefully) teach the scalpers that they can't always win.

Kris
11-28-2002, 01:11 AM
so, are there any left ?

11-28-2002, 10:06 AM
How are you getting one? From Lego,Insider, or were you lucky and got one from starwars.com? I'd really like a list of parts.I don't want it for its money value, I think its a great set.

I had tried signing up today(looks like they were all gone anyways), but the link from SW.com didn't work. Every time I clicked the link it just reloaded the page. Oh well I was too late anyways I guess. images/icons/frown.gif

11-29-2002, 01:11 AM
they are all ordered...

BobaBoy
11-29-2002, 03:50 PM
damn the thing just ended wednesday, so i say they have monday to get all the names and addys to verify they are the right ones, then to get them to the shipping dept to have them enter it into the machine to print on the package the address of ours and to get the minities packaged, i say it's a lot of buericratic bullshat! so just get worried if it aint here in 6-8 weeks the usual shipping time for free stuff... if we paid for shipping we would probably have em in a week or two so don't fret!

Diddly_Squat
11-30-2002, 01:06 AM
For everyone who got a mini TIE off of Starwars.com, when does the set ship? Does anybody know? Who has gotten theirs?

Friends, Friends. All is NOT lost. I tried for two or three days to get mine, but the infamous "Sorry..." message kept coming up. But this afternoon, I tried again. And to my delight, the registration came up, I gave them my address, and they said it's on the way!!

I thought it was out to, but I wanted it sooo bad. Now I am sleep easy and collect ALL the mini sets when they come out, including this small, yet important exclusive. images/icons/smile.gif

Hmm. FBTB said that that was a glitch. I hope it actualy worked for you.

Diddly_Squat
12-05-2002, 09:26 PM
I was just checking FBTB, and they said that it WAS NOT a glitch, so you were lucky enough to get one.

12-08-2002, 05:51 PM
I signed up in time! Hope to get it soon. Please, if anyone got theres, post it here! Thank you.

I miss it. images/icons/frown.gif

12-14-2002, 06:06 PM
Got one on eBAY in addition to the one that I will get (hopefully soon) from SW.com. I was actually reloading the REBELSCUM page as they posted it, and came upon it really early! So I am glad about that, but I still have not seen anything in the mail. Waiting near the box, in the cold....

12-16-2002, 03:33 PM

BobaBoy
12-16-2002, 04:23 PM

i got two of the 5000 and nothing yet, i should go check the other address, the box is interesting, it says lego club, i just sent in a thing for it last friday so it will take a while to get there if i join the legoclub in time. i dunno hopefully it's for the 5000.

Here is a very high definition scan of the poster. I even enhanced it in Photoshop to really bring out the color and details. It's almost good enough to recognize the individual pieces and build it yourself! images/icons/grin.gif

Yeah, I think you're probably right BigDumbWookie (not being mean, that's his name images/icons/grin.gif )

Are the other mini sets going to be sold in stores or order only? I'd prefer not to have to pay shipping. If they're going to be sold in stores, has anyone seen them yet?

12-18-2002, 04:04 PM
day umm 3 of mailing i think and still no TIE california always gets stuff last when shipped from eastern US BOOO! i pressume the minisets are to be sold in stores, for about 4.99 each and each comes with an extra piece, when all sets are to be had and opened u get one extra vehicle if i remember correctly it is suppose to be a TIE Bomber. i hope that clears stuff up and u can find the mini sets onlie at lego shop at home for 3.99 +shipping so not a bad deal, i think shipping is about 4 or 5 bucks so it's like paying retail for the sets or a lil bit more.

12-18-2002, 06:10 PM
got mine today

I just got mine today... it was such a nice surprise to see when opening up up my mailbox. Is anyone planning on NOT opening their's up? I'm not going to open mine up at all... will be a nice addition to my collection.

However, ******* me... I only signed up to get one and should've registered at least more than once (at different addresses) to get one that I could actually open up. Oh well. I'm still a happy camper.

12-18-2002, 08:05 PM
Finnally, I got it! To tell you the truth...not too impressed. I mean, maybe it's just me, but this is so over exaggerated in the picture on the bag. If you ask me, not a great tie, but the X-Wing's look nice.

I actually think I was one of the few that registered during the so-called "glitch" LEGO.com was experiencing. However, I read on fbtb.net that those fans that did register during that time will be taken care of, seeing how it was LEGO's fault, and not the fans.

I am still hoping, but nothing yet. I will email LEGO if it doesn't show up after a while. images/icons/smile.gif

I'm going to wait until after christmas also. Very anxiously I might add.

For anyone who was shut out of this offer but still wants one, you may want to check out this link:

http://www.theforce.net/collecting/index.shtml#19171

I'm not too familiar with this magazine, but it may be worth checking out.

Just got mine today. I wasn't sure if I got in on it since the page didn't finish loading after I registered.

It said a while ago on this site that the mini lego TIE fighter would be free with fox kids magazine in the UK. Has anyone in the UK seen one yet?

I have one extra Mini TIE Fighter LEGO set, and am giving it away. All you need to do is send me a self addressed stamped envelope (preferably a small padded one, like a cd mailer, so it doesnt get lost or damaged). The first person to email me and include their RS screen name gets it! I will send you my address and you can mail the SASE. While there is no way of proving it, I ask that if you already own one, give someone else a chance. I'll ship anywhere in the world, but you are responsible for putting enough stamps on to assure it gets back to you.

Just email me at adamclowe@earthlink.net images/icons/smile.gif

OK well it doesn't matter now beacause I got it free with LEGO club magazine (yay!). Now I have all the minis except for the blockade runner. And I'll never get that... or will I? Nope, probably not.

i'm sure if u own a lot of legos, u have the parts to make a lot of them. they are very simple. someone posted the instructions in the forum recently, just search for that pic .also, u can order parks from bricklink, and i am sure u can get massive pieces to make them.

&gt;So how do you still get the mini tie now? &lt;

If you live in an area served by the Official Fan Club headquartered in the US, you can get a mini-TIE with a new membership or a renewal.

See:

and use the offer code "JLEGO".

I've heard the rumors of Mini TIE's being found at various places in the past three weeks. The question is...has anyone here seen them with their own eyes? And if so, where? I know they don't have them at the Lego store at the Mall of America...at least not a week ago. Where else are these popping up?

Aaron.

They are exclusive to UK magazines, and you used to be able to get them by subscribing to the Star Wars Insider. You should take this oppertunity if you want one.

I didn't miss the first round, but when my box came, it was badly crushed and the Mini TIE was missing... all the paper inserts were in there, but no Mini TIE... a friend gave me his though, but now I get to pay him back.

I'm just curious as to how long it took everyone to get ther mini tie sets the last time they were given away. I missed it last time and I think I got one this time so I'm looking forward to it. Also, what are they worth now? I'm assuming their worth keeps going down because they're becoming more readily available, but I'm still curious. images/icons/rolleyes.gif

I think it took me a week and a half, maybe 2 weeks. But I've traded mine since I got it.

It took a couple weeks. When they started arriving rebelscum posted it, but mine got here about 2 weeks after that. I guess it really depends on your local mail service and how far down on the list you are.

I was hoping to find someone who can make me a copy or send me a scan of the LEGO mini TIE Fighter that was give away. I didn't get a chance to get one and was hoping to make my own out of spare parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have some pics of it in MLCAD which show you how to make it. How do I attach pictures? I have no website to put them on.
