Tie Bomber coming?

Saw this floating around the interwebs. Didn't see a watermark on it but if the admins need to take it down, go ahead. If this is a real set, I will be absolutely stoked. We haven't seen one of these babies in over a decade.

Would be nice, but that's fan made. The lighting and contrast isn't consistent with real sets, and it shouldn't have the soft glow around all of the edges. Also we're on five digit set numbers for Star Wars now and I've never seen a leak with the red box sans text.

Great model! Way too smooth (and good-looking) for an official set. That snot-work for the fuselages would probably not pass a LEGO toy/set review, because it's hard to take it apart.

Maybe it's new Lepin set. :p
