The Imperial mainstay.
Even to this day, the TIE Interceptor sees serious competitive play. Soontir Fel is an Imperial powerhouse, and the Imperial Aces expansion, coupled with Autothrusters from the StarViper expansion, only tacks on impressive power. A glass cannon at heart, it doesn't truly matter when a TIE Interceptor can avoid being damaged at all. It's not uncommon to see a fully kitted out Soontir Fel make it through an entire game without taking a single point of damage.

The Empire's Elite
The TIE Interceptor brings a supercharged TIE Fighter to the table. The Interceptor was created for the most elite pilots of the Empire to counter the Rebellion's fighter superiority. While it isn't any more resilient than a typical TIE Fighter, the added speed and maneuverability lets the Interceptor dance around the enemy and attack from outside their fire arc.

The star of this expansion is definitely Soontir Fel. The legendary Baron Fel is one of the greatest pilots in the galaxy (and supposedly so good that Vader specifically chose the TIE Advanced to have shields between himself and Fel). In addition to have Pilot Skill of 9, Fel has a fantastic ability to stack things in his favor. This has made him very successful in tournaments, particularly with some key upgrades from Imperial Aces and the Starviper expanion. Keep in mind that the autothrusters (from the Starviper) are practically essential for making Interceptors competitive against ships using turrets.

Awesome ship
With the right pilot and upgrades, this can be almost impossible to bring down. Very effective, and a mainstay for most imperial builds. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

Arguably One Of The Best Imperial Ships
TIE Interceptors are better than standard TIE's in every way except for points cost. This expansion includes the Soontir Fel pilot card, as well as upgrade cards Daredevil and Elusiveness. Squints pack a punch and are hard to hit when used well, but are fragile and cannot take much punishment.

Soontir
You want this ship for Soontir Fel, but besides him the Interceptor is an excellent ship. I would recommend getting one or two these and and the Imperial Aces pack. The pilots and upgrades included in each are a must have for any x-wing player and if you are an imperial player they contain some of the best pilots out there.

The ship can be fragile and hard to learn, but once you gain a bit of control over it you will be dodging out of firing arcs and destroying rebel scum in no time.

Great Ship and Great Pilot - Soontir Fel!
The TIE interceptor really adds a lot to your imperial squadron - great pilots, great upgrades, better attack than the regular TIE, and all-around fun to fly!

When I got my three packs one of them had a broken solar wing when it came in the mail, but Fantasy Flight's customer service was top notch and after a couple quick email's they had a replacement ship in the mail to me within a week or so.

You can't go wrong with the TIE interceptor or Fantasy Flight!

Review by Micah on 10/19/2015
Great Expansion
This is a fantastic ship, both aesthetically and gameplay wise. Get this ship, along with an A-Wing or Imperial Aces (for reasons I'll explain later). The maneuver dial for the TIE Interceptor is a solid one, with 7 green maneuvers. Statistically, the ship is fragile, but if flown properly with the right pilot and correct positioning, can be a deadly force. The TIE Interceptor is an arc dodger. The idea to to have a higher pilot skilled pilot, like Soontir Fel or Turr Phennir, use boosts and barrel rolls to get out of the enemy's firing arcs. The important thing to recognize is that the Elite Pilot Talent called Push the Limit (sold in Imperial Aces and the A-Wing expansions) is crucial for any Interceptor. Multiple actions, such as boosting into Range 1, then barrel rolling out of arc, are the bread and butter of this style of ship. The ship only comes with 2 upgrade cards, both of which are decent but not as important as Push the Limit. Be careful with your Interceptors around 360 turret ships. Arc Dodgers are very fun to fly, and this is a must have for any X-Wing player, casual or serious.

Must have for Imperial collections
This pack comes with Soontir Fel, who is hands down one of the best Imperial pilots out there. He is super elusive and has good offense to boot.

Fast and Deadly
What happens when you combine the agility of the TIE Fighter with the X-Wing? You get the TIE Interceptor. Add on top of that its ability to perform barrel rolls, you have an arc-dodger that can dish out a lot of damage, and avoid taking a lot in return. This expansion also introduces one of the greatest Imperial pilots from the Expanded Universe: Baron Soontir Fel.

One of the best
One of the best ships you can use. Very respectable damage and incredibly maneuverable. You can build a swarm of them, but you might do better fielding one Interceptor (with Soontir Fel piloting) and a swarm of regular TIE's.

This is a beautiful model. Any fan of the Empire will definitely want one or two of these. You also should grab the Imperial Aces pack just to get the Interceptor with the red stripe for Fel to fly :-)
(or paint one yourself, of course)

Fun to Fly
The TIE Interceptor is one of the best fighters in the game. A combination of decent firepower, defense, handling, and pilot abilities (Soontir Fel is one of the best in the game) makes the TIE/I fun to fly. The TIE Interceptor works quite well out of the box, but is made exceptional through some of the modifications and upgrades from other expansions (Soontir Fel + Push the Limit is a pretty popular choice). The TIE/I does suffer from the no-shields / iffy hull similar to TIE Fighters, but the ship handling should help keep it out of your opponent's firing arcs.

A great glass cannon by FFG. As with other X-Wing expansions, the miniature and components are of exceptional quality.

Like you needed another 5 star review of the Interceptor :)
Fast, fragile, firepower. I have several of these, and still wonder if I can squeeze in one more. Model is excellent, as is gameplay.

The Perfect Expansion Pack
This ship will bring the maneuverability and punching power needed to give you the edge. This is really a required ship for anyone who wants to be a serious Imperial player. A perfect match to a larger ship or as a leader to several small ones.

Super maneuverable eggshell with a big hammer!
It is brittle and it takes up a fair chunk of squad points, but the TIE interceptor is a great ship with an excellent dial, boost and barrel roll options, and some great pilot abilities. The top-level pilot, Fell, is a monster on the level of Darth Vader - and in a better ship. If you want a ship that exemplifies glass cannon warfare, you've found it...

One of the best small ships out there
If you like Imperial builds, than this is the must have ship for it. The main reason is the pilot Soontir Fel. One of the few pilots with a nine skill level. Assign this pilot with the Push The Limit card (from the Imperial Aces Pack) and you are capable of preforming 3 actions in one round. This ship is hard to hit and can outmaneuver most ships on the board.

One of the best
This is one of my top favorite Imperial ships, and my favorite of all the interceptors. I plan to grab the Imperial Aces pack and maybe a few more of these and run an interceptor swarm, just because.

Quality on the miniature is great, along with all the other bits included. Even at this small size the detail is on par with some of my larger toys/models of this ship.

A Fast and Nimble ship.
The Tie Interceptor is actually my favorite ship in this game, with its ability to constantly arc dodge my opponent, despite the large number of turreted ships currently being used in the meta. This pack also includes one of the most powerful pilots in the game Sonteir Fel, one of the Empire's two Pilot Skill Nine pilots, the other being Vader.

I can't highly recommend this ship enough, it is a must have for the game.

Dominate Pilots
Soontir is probably the second best pilot compared to Vader. Being able to take advantage of being stressed can come a long way. Yes they don't have shields, but man do they pack a punch and have evasive maneuvers.

I almost always have an interceptor in my squad.

Soontir Fel is the Ace of Interceptor Pilots
The title speaks for itself. The top pilot in this set is arguable the best pilot the Imperial Fleet has to offer. Good defense, offense, and maneuvering capabilities. Also a great addition if you already have the Imperial Aces expansion.
