    Joining Captain Phasma, Captain Cardinal and Commander Pyre as one of the few members of the First Order who have personalised body armour, Major Vonreg's mission to investigate Resistance activities on the Colossus refuelling station saw him, in his personal TIE Interceptor with its striking red and black colour scheme, engaging Poe Dameron in space combat.


    Though the dimensions of TIE Interceptor seen in Star Wars Resistance largely matches - with the exception of the modified rear wings - those in Return of the Jedi, the one designed by LEGO is slightly different with the length of the wings shortened and their height raised. The look isn't unappealing and differing ratio gives Vonreg's spacecraft a more bullish and robust look that the waspish movie-based TIE had.


    While the spacecraft in the TV series had wing-mounted missiles, LEGO's redesign is perhaps the best feature of the model, because at the rear of the cockpit is a trigger that can be turned right and left to fire the spring-loaded missiles.


    The model also sports a very cool printed top hatch and apparently includes "new-for-April-2019" 4 x 6 left- and right-wing elements. I have to admit that these went un-noticed by me, but if they are part of the stylish red and black markings on either of the wings then they're doing a stand up job.

    Minifig-wise, the set is well represented.

    Hardly-the-hero of the Resistance cell on Colossus is Kaz Xiono, with a dual-moulded hair element and a colour scheme that looks like it's jumped straight out of the colouring book of a kindergardtener - which is perfect considering the palette of the TV show! He is accompanied by a droid figure of Bucket.

    Though hardly appearing in the TV series, the General Leia minifig is a nod to those fans and collectors who have been asking for more gender-equal minifig line up. This one comes with a variant brown turtleneck print and a double-sided face print, with one side suggesting she knows what's up and the other delivering the pouting smile that Carrie Fisher was well known for.

    The set's titular character is a resplendently red minifigure who boasts a brand new, dual-moulded helmet and printed torso and leg elements. Hopefully the expense of creating a special mould for his helmet will pay off. It's just a shame LEGO wasn't given license to print an element with a face instead of including the plain black head under his helmet.


    More than any other LEGO has produced over the two decades that their LEGO Star Wars license has existed for, 75240 Major Vonreg's TIE Fighter makes me miss the old, pre-Disney days when this red and black TIE/Int would have been flown by Baron Soontir Fel. Maybe one day LEGO will get to entertain a Legends line.
