  1. Note: this post has been edited to become a full story on its own, following some great feedback from BEAVeR. TIE-Lambda MKII by Veynom, on Flickr The TIE Lambda was a design from Sienar to cut costs, yet provide a vessel of similar quality to the standard TIE Fighter. It came about after the death of Emperor Palpatine at the Battle of Endor and the Empire was in disorder. Imperial Warlords through out the galaxy joined forces and created the NEO Empire. With this new beginning, it was decided to create new more powerful fighters to reek havoc on the New Republic forces, the Lambda was the first to go into production, intended to replace the TIE Fighter, it has a stronger hull and is faster than it's predecessor. The Cockpit or pilot's compartment is fitted with flight computers, communications, and life support. Either side of the cockpit from first glance still have the wing braces from the original TIE designs, but these in fact are shield generators. With a single wing, it is a maneuverable and tough variant of the TIE, but the design is reported to be a little uncontrollable within an atmosphere. Weaponry for the Lambda consists of two chin laser cannons. The first prototypes were delivered by Sienar and went through a thorough testing and approval programs under authority of Imperial Regulator BEAVeR. TIE-Lambda MKI by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Lambda MKI by Veynom, on Flickr Following BEAVeR's detailed report revealing a few design flaws, Sienar provided several updates and improvements to the TIE-Lambda resulting in the release of a Mark II version by Sienar. TIE-Lambda MKII by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Lambda MKII by Veynom, on Flickr The MKII version is now awaiting production approval from the Imperial Regulator. About this TIE-Lambda: This TIE is not canon and seems to come from the fandom universe, like the TIE-Torpedo Bomber. The 1st paragraph comes from http://galactic-voyage.com/Dark%20Side-Starfighters-TIE%20Lambda.htm. The MK2 version is storyfied based on the excellent feedback of BEAVeR. I found the missing black straight technic connector for the wings on my TS-4 Tow Speeder MOC. I could replace it with a a different type of connector. I could swap the 2 LBG technic connectors from the botto wings thanks to the Catwoman bike from my son. I did not hesitate for long. The MKI cockpit was originally based on the cockpit of the officiel TIE-Fighter 75211 set. I had created the new wing and modified the ball cockpit to fix the new wing. However the MKII version is heavily modified with maybe only 20% of the original design. The resulting model is relatively sturdy with a limitation on the vertical axis where a single technic bar is used to link the cockpit to the wing and only friction keeps the wing attached to the cockpit when you take the TIE in your hand from the cockpit only. For the detailed list of differences, please refer to the below pictures: TIE-Lambda Version Comparison by Veynom, on Flickr I hope you enjoyed this model and the small story around it.

    [MOC] TIE Experimental M1

    And here comes a rare variant from the famous TIE-Fighter, the TIE Expérimental M1 which first appeared in the old X-Wing Alliance video game. For this variant, the famous TIE concept is inverted: instead of having one pod surrounded by 2 wings, we have 1 central wing surrounded by 2 TIE cockpit pods TIE Experimental M1 by Veynom, on Flickr I used many bricks from the 75211 set as this set provides a good chunk of what I needed. The only real challenge was to create a sturdy double wing to support the 2 pods. TIE Experimental M1 by Veynom, on Flickr Once the wing is done, it is all about symetry but not completly still. TIE Experimental M1 by Veynom, on Flickr TIE Experimental M1 by Veynom, on Flickr And in the end, I get one more TIE variant: TIE Experimental M1 by Veynom, on Flickr And my collection of TIEs is growing: TIE-Separator by Veynom, on Flickr TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Emancipator by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Defender by Veynom, on Flickr Uglies by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Interceptor by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Viper Profile View by Veynom, on Flickr I'm a true TIE-fan. :)

    [MOC] TIE-Separator

    A not-so-serious MOC made as entry for a BeLUG (Belgium Lego User Group) contest: here is my TIE-Separator: TIE-Separator by Veynom, on Flickr Yes, we had to use any brick separator as part of our MOC. I used 32 of the current orange version. This MOC ended up second out of 26 entries, behind an elegant green grasshopper.
  4. Here is my latest MOC, a TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber, also known originally as Torpedo Launcher. TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr Do not look for this TIE craft in any of the movies, anime, or comic books as you will not find it. It is based on the 3D model created in the early nineties par Marco SPitoni for his excellent animation fanfilm: " ". (Look from 27" and also in the credits)I then decided to build it using my bricks in order to complete and expand further my LEGO TIE collection. TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr This side view shows the technic beam used to link the top wing to the TIE body. It provides structural strength and thanks to it, you can play with the TIE and replicate any kind of space combat. TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr The rear side offers a view on an unusual feature for a TIE craft: the presence of 2 distinctive engines under the wing: TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr Here is a shot at the wing global shape. Note that the middle section has built using an odd number of studs in order to respect the symmetry with the body and the support pylon. TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr Front view depicting the torpedo launchers under the wing: TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber by Veynom, on Flickr And of course, it is on scale with other TIE sets. ;) Comments welcome.
  5. Here is a brick-built version of a MOC based on the MKI version of the excellent TIE-Emancipator from GuyDudeMan27. Compared to the original design, I made the following modifications: - The read body has been redesigned to be symmetrical; - Extra details have been added here and there; - Some color swapping depending on available parts in my stock; - Printed parts have been used for the cockpit or parts with stickers for other areas; - Wings supports have been re-enforced for playability & swoshability; - Some structural details were modified for sustainability and resistance to kids. (I know, resistance is futile) TIE-Emancipator by Veynom, on Flickr Front view ... nasty beast. TIE-Emancipator by Veynom, on Flickr A top rear view offering insight on the details.

Sadly with black on black parts, details are not very visible: TIE-Emancipator by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Emancipator by Veynom, on Flickr And more pictures...

    [MOD] TIE-Interceptor

    I never had the time to properly shoot my TIE-Interceptor MOD. Now that Imperial Justice has ruled, I can show you this relatively easy MOD based on the 9492 TIE-Fighter set. TIE-Interceptor by Veynom, on Flickr Side view: TIE-Interceptor by Veynom, on Flickr Front views: TIE-Interceptor by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Interceptor by Veynom, on Flickr And the only picture I had taken in the past: TIE-Interceptor by Veynom, on Flickr When exposing during Lego fairs, this nice collection of TIE ships provides a positive impression on visitors... and more TIEs will fly in in the coming days so stay tuned.

    [MOC] LL-924 TIE Cruiser

    Please read first the LL-924 & Variants article in order to discover 16 other variants. Following our previous articles about the famous LL-924 variants, more people sent us testimonies and pictures about additional variants that were so far totally unknown to the vast majority of our public. Today's version for this 3rd article in our serie is quite particular as only some files and schematics were found back in the archives of a company named Imagination & Lure Manufacturing (ILM) which went bankrupt since then. LL-924 TIE Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr This variant, nicknamed TIE Cruiser, was to be used for a science-fiction movie but it looks like the project was abandonned at some point. The archives contained several artistics views aiming to demonstrate the LL-924 TIE Cruiser in action. LL-924 TIE Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr LL-924 TIE Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr The main characteristics of this so out of the ordinary version come from the wings that are uniquely placed on the sides of the ship, while still respecting the LL-924 so famous shape. LL-924 TIE Cruiser - wings details by Veynom, on Flickr The cockpit was also to be improved in order to match the expected standard of sci-fi production. LL-924 TIE Cruiser - cockpit by Veynom, on Flickr Sadly the ILM's archives did not mention the name of the movie for which this prototype variant was designed. Given the unfortunate fate of the company, it is probable that the movie project got cancelled or never met the expected success. All things considered, such design really deserved to fly through space. LL-924 TIE Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr
