The set Mini TIE Fighter is a mini set released in 2008. It is larger than the original 3219 TIE-Fighter, at a full 44 pieces.

Description

The fighter is made of three sections: Two large, almost square vertical wings of the same build, and a square interior section, to which the wings are attached. The wings are almost entirely black, with some blue grilles on their outside, and a blue plate on their interior, connecting them to the center section. The cube-like interior section has studs on all its sides except the bottom, and has a transparent clear dish piece attached to its front plus an gray one on the back.

Background

TIE Fighters were starfighters used by the Galactic Empire. They were the basic fleet of the Imperial army and were designed to attack in large numbers. It was the original design of the TIE series, which was later upgraded into TIE Interceptors and TIE Bombers. They were armed with 2 SFS L-s1 laser cannons.
