A British YouTube personality and inventor has created a full-size TIE Silencer spacecraft as seen in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie.
Colin Furze is known for building wacky creations, having already created a life-size AT-AT walker that he keeps in his back garden. But the innovative Brit has gone one step further with his latest home project, building a new-generation TIE Fighter that’s fully to-scale.
Furze described it as an “epic project”, adding that the full-steel construction “looks as menacing as it does in the film”.
“This was an eBay project so everything was sourced from their site to bring this monster together,” explained Furze. He also worked with robotics engineer James Bruton to making a fully operational BB-9E droid, making this was Furze calls a “Star Wars feast”.
The TIE Silencer is a TIE/vn space superiority fighter spacecraft, and is notable for being used by Kylo Ren during the First Order’s war with the Resistance in the latest Star Wars trilogy.
It was created and developed for the next upcoming Star Wars Movie, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. We’ve already seen the ship design proffered up in toy form however, as well as in various video games – including the new Star Wars Battlefront II.
Some of you may have already caught a glimpse of this impressive creation in real life. Furze had the TIE Fighter on display at Burghley House in Stamford from December 2 to December 10.
If you missed out, you’ll be able to check it out in all of its cinematic glory when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits UK cinemas on December 15, 2017.
