Lego Star Wars Mini Sets, TIE Fighter, General Grievous’ Starfighter, V-19 Torrent

Over the holidays, Target sold the above three Lego Star Wars mini sets in their Christmas stocking stuffers section of the store. They are the TIE Fighter 8028, V-19 Torrent 8031, and General Grievous’ Starfighter 8033. Each are fast and fun builds. The cool thing about the single seater starfighters of the Lego mini line is that they scale very well to the Millennium Falcon midi-scale. I don’t own any other mini sets, but I would like to find an X-Wing or more TIE Fighters to build a panorama when I have the time. More pictures below.
