While we realize May the Fourth was yesterday it’s hard to contain so much Star Wars awesomeness in one day. Take, for example, this stunning LEGO Royal Guard TIE Interceptor by Jarek Książczyk. The complex shaping, the build techniques, even the breathtaking photography are all several notches above standard. The Emperor would approve.
As if the striking red Royal Guard Interceptor wasn’t enough, here is a shot of some other TIE Fighters he’s been working on and perfecting lately. Here we have an updated TIE Fighter, a color variant for Iden Versio (I had to look that one up), the aforementioned Royal Guard Fighter, and a new TIE Interceptor.
He is a Star Wars spaceship aficionado as evidenced by this Razor Crest, and this Y-Wing. If you’re still craving all things Star Wars check out our archive of news and other fabulous creations from a galaxy far far away.
Making a creation in microscale is something I really admire because it’s hard to do. Making one that also looks visually pleasing is even harder. With this tiny TIE Interceptor, Dan Ko proves he is an expert when it comes to making these kinds of LEGO builds. I love when builders manage to use a seemingly single use part in a completely different way. The use of the bottom half of the Darth Vader helmet to create a Star Wars ship is pure gold.
Star Wars has brought us so many cool and iconic LEGO spaceships over the years, but in my opinion, one of the coolest and most intimidating fighters in the Imperial fleet is the TIE Interceptor. From the angled wings to the four wing-mounted laser cannons, this is one fierce fighter. This model by sok117 depicts a specific Interceptor that, according to Legends, was the leader for Saber Squadron, an elite unit tasked with defending the Star Destroyer Avenger during the Battle of Endor. This model features a red stripe on each wing panel which sets it apart from other TIE Interceptors.
