The set features a rotatable cockpit and the characteristic three-winged design of the TIE Defender. It also has six flick-fire missiles (two mounted on each wing). The minifigures included are a Stormtrooper with a blaster pistol, and a TIE Pilot with a newly redesigned helmet.

Background

The TIE/D Defender was a shield and hyperdrive equipped TIE series starfighter and was armed with 4 laser cannons, 2 ion cannons and 2 warhead launchers. This starfighter was utilized in the Empire's campaign against former Grand Admiral Zaarin, and was later used by the Imperial Remnant after the death of Palpatine, also being utilized in the Yuzzhan Vong War.
