Tie Fighter Pilot Minifigure – Day 11
of the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar. A rare Minifig indeed.
Yesterday, we got the Lego Tie Fighter, and today, we get a Tie Fighter Pilot. Of course the minifig is regular size, so he wouldn’t ever be able to fit into the micro scale model, but that doesn’t really matter. This is the 4th minifigure so far in the set
This is a pretty rare minifigure. I only know of one other, Lego Tie Fighter minifig, which was released back in 2010, and updated a couple of times in a few different sets throughout the years. This Tie Minifigure has been updated, but still retains the look you would expect.
He is Dressed completely in black, with a matching helmet. The detail on his flight suit is really good both front and back. With lots of buttons and knobs for making adjustments. Nice pocket details, too. He has black hands, which to me means he is wearing black gloves. His helmet is really cool too – good molding detail, and painting around the eyes, mouth and other places.
This is one of my favorites so far – a rare minifig, and one with great detail. What else could you ask for?
The only way to get this Micro Tie Fighter Minifigure is in the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar
This is what the Official Lego website has to say about the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar:
Spend the festive period on icy planet Hoth with the LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar! Open up a door each December day to reveal a cool Star Wars themed gift, including minifigures starships, vehicles and more. Once you have all 24 gifts, unfold the playmat and act out hilarious Hoth-based scenes that everyone in the family will love to watch. This is the perfect holiday gift for LEGO Star Wars fans from any galaxy!
The Lego Advent Calendars follow a simple principle, there are 24 different mini sets each hidden behind a numbered door inside the Lego Box. You don’t open the box like a regular Lego Set, but instead, the lid is hinged, and the box opens up so that the back of the lid is a printed play-space, and then there are 24 different perforated doors.
Some people like to open each of the 24 sets all at once, but I prefer to open the first set on Dec 1, the 2nd on Dec, and so forth, all the way to Christmas Eve when I open the last one.
