I need something that you can do more with than 10 piece lego sets.Like the Republic Gunship and the UCS.You know sets that take a while to  build.

I saw some pictures of the mini's on another Star Wars related website, and I didn't really care for them.  But, being a huge Star Wars and LEGO fan, I'm sure I will buy them all.

Are they available for purchase, and if so where?

This has been reported over at scum that The first 5,000 people from the U.S. that register at the LEGO site, after going from the Starwars.com site will get a FREE Tie Fighter mailed to them!

I just wanted to add to that great tip that the tie fighter is a mini-LEGO kit... not the full size version that they've had out for a while.  Nonetheless, it will make an excellent addition to my already nice sized LEGO collection (Star Wars, of course).  My mini tie fighter will be here soon!

Yeah baby!

Your lucky to get one dustrho.

Only available in the US.
I'm from Canada so I guess I'm out, unless someone is very nice to get me one.  :)

Well, apparently nobody's actually commented on this line with the initial 4 releases in hand so far...

I picked up a couple of the Tie Fighters from the 5,000 entry gig that Lego did last month.  The Tie-Fighter was pretty cool, but fairly simple in design, so much so that I put the thing together without actually looking at the directions (that was certainly a Lego first in my life).

But, I picked up the first four mini sets two days ago at Target ($3.99 each), and I've got to say that these sets are absolutely COOL!  Especially when you think about the price - $2 for each individual ship (even less if you factor in the fact that you're getting an extra fourth of a Tie Bomber in each set).  They come in a small, clear, upwards standing package.  The detail in these things is absolutely amazing considering their size and price.  They pretty much mirror all of the features in the Hasbro toys.  It's amazing what Lego can put together in such a small amount of actual pieces.  We're talking rotating guns, opening X-foils, articulated Scout Walker legs, etc., etc.

All I've got to say, is pick them up if you see them.  If you're a fan of Star Wars, Legos, miniatures, or any combination of the three, you won't be disappointed!  This is most definitely my new favorite line, and I look forward to many more vehicles from it.  You'll be quite surprised with the detail and authenticity in these tiny little ships.  Awesome!

So, what are you waiting for...?!

I've seen pictures of the mini 4 sets. They look cool & getting a Tie Bomber combination with it is sweet.
Thats a great price you got them for JediMAC.
Can't beat that.  :)
Not sure if they are going to show up here in Canada so looks like so far,  I'm SOL again.  :(
