LegoStarWarsLDDShop posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsMay I present an all-new MOD design: --TIE Striker-- Straight from the new film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the TIE Striker is a brilliantly-designed new variant on the original craft. With a wide array of armament and weaponry, and sporting a new atmosphere-friendly design, this TIE variant proves to be a match for even the best Rebel pilots. The Lego Group has released their own version of the craft. There are many things I liked about their design, and given this is a MOD, there are a few similarities in design. What separates this one from their model, however, is the increased range in features and detail. When redesigning the wings, I decided to switch some of the plates with tile pieces. I am one of those Lego builders who prefers tiles over plates for wing designs. Plus, the wings look even sleeker now. In addition, the wings feature front blasters, smaller, custom-designed hinges, and underside accent builds. For the body, I went to the visual guide for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. There are MANY things in that one that, surprisingly, weren't incorporated into the official Lego release (i.e. a second pilot seat, and a storage area for the bombs). I am very pleased to say that this version includes those design characteristics. Starting with the front, I updated the controls for the TIE pilot, which are more minifigure-friendly and realistic. Also, I switched the hatch build with the hatch plate (looks more like the original ship); I updated the front blasters with a new hinge piece, rather than the spring-loaded missiles; and I added some underside blasters as well. The center storage area includes an area for 16 bombs. Also underneath that area, I've included a hatch where those bombs can be deployed/dropped. Finally, as I said previously, the rear end includes an area for a 2nd pilot, as well as controls and handlebars for TIE Pilot operations. The end also includes a redesigned engine, with the familiar engine design of the original craft. I am very excited to share my MOD with you all, and I hope you guys are excited to build it for yourself. MOCpages Please let me know what you think below. God bless!
