For the one that are new, welcome!
For the one that already know me, it's nice to see you again!
BIG UPDATE: TimeLapse is OUT!
This post is a side stop of a project, the LEGO one! We will go through the best architectures and representative buildings in the world, but we need some powerful vehicles to do that.
I want to express to all the Steemit community my love for the colorful and most funny bricks ever, LEGO!
To achieve that, I will show you the building phases, tips and tricks, photos and funny tales about the place or the building, and in this case, the incredible spaceship.
Without further ado, let's turn up the engine.
The TIE fighter. A dream of all children (and grown up children of course!). Surely one of the most iconic models of the lineup in the Star Wars saga. TIE stands for Twin ION Engines, the propeller of the spaceship. Fast, agile and basically versatile, they are seen since 1977 in the first film of the original Star Wars Trilogy. Very fragile, those spaceships usually swarm enemies in number. To quote Baron Soontir Fel:
"For every TIE fighter you shoot down, a thousand more will take its place."
The usual enemy is the spaceship (or should I say flagship) of the rebel, the X-Wing fighter, the iconic nemesis, as shown in the great representation below.
Star Wars and LEGO are a now old partnership, that features a lot of models and cool minifigures! This has been my first LEGO Star Wars model and I must admit I really enjoy both the building process and the variety of pieces in it. You can see a in the chart below the main details of this boxset.
|Number of LEGO||75211|

|Number of Minifigures||4|
One of the perks of the LEGO Star Wars series are the unique pieces that come along. I never seen some of the paddle and details of the spaceship are really accurate! Han Solo is waiting to fight the Imperial Forces, so it's better to start.
The first to be built is the center of the spaceship, which has a double rocket-launcher mechanism too (Which is quite powerful too! I wasn't expecting that at all from LEGO!). You can see some really dope details like aeration vents and grills in the picture below.
There is a bay, which can be open and closed to store the pilot of the starship. Han Solo seems to delve in the dark side?
The lateral panels of the Tie Fighter are pretty detailed and pretty big as well! There are some cool systems to give it a sense of mobility to the vehicle, like the grey border one. On the side you can see a missile that the Tie Fighter can shoot!

This boxset is a mid one in terms of pieces and price, yet it's really really interesting to build. If you are interested in the LEGO series and a passionate fan of Star Wars saga, you should check out the Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) which features various replica of the vehicles. Have you seen Solo: a Star Wars Story at the cinema?
What do you think? What is your favourite spaceship from the saga?
Let me know in the comment if you did like this stop of the series and which cities/building you want to visit in the future! I am preparing the Timelapse too and will be out soon!
