  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.
