A Darth Vader minifigure is included, which was one of the first to have the new, more-detailed torso piece. Contents [ show ] Description This set is mostly in black or dark stone colour , and features details from the Star Wars movies.
It has bent wings, unlike a regular TIE Fighter , flick-firing missiles and an elongated hull with an opening cockpit to seat Darth Vader. Background Darth Vader used this experimental TIE Fighter after a series of other ships which he deemed inferior and uncomfortable due to his cumbersome life-support armour. It was an improvement over the regular TIE Fighter in terms of both speed and durability, as well as having hyperspace capabilities and was given to him by Marketing Relations Manager Taed Augustus whom he killed for disrespect.
It was proposed to become the replacement of the regular TIE Fighter, but its heavy costs never saw it mass-produced. Vader flew this at the Battle of Yavin, just before the Death Star was destroyed. It had two laser cannons and cluster missiles equipped, which let it do considerably more damage than the average TIE Fighter.
Advanced TIE fighters of this class were later used by Lando Calrissian as part of an asteroid field-based flight challenge over the planet of Dubrillion called "running the belt".
Notes This set was released in late December in the U. The Darth Vader Minifigure in this set has a new torso piece which contains additional details, such as more buttons on the chest panel and a belt. Minifigures included.
