Following our previous articles about the famous LL-924 variants, more people sent us testimonies and pictures about additional variants that were so far totally unknown to the vast majority of our public. Today's version for this 3rd article in our serie is quite particular as only some files and schematics were found back in the archives of a company named Imagination & Laughs Manufacturing (ILM).
This variant, nicknamed TIE Cruiser, was to be used for a science-fiction movie but it looks like the project was abandonned at some point. The archives contained several artistics views aiming to demonstrate the LL-924 TIE Cruiser in action.
The main characteristics of this so out of the ordinary version come from the wings that are uniquely placed on the sides of the ship, while still respecting the LL-924 so famous shape.
The cockpit was also to be improved in order to match the expected standard of sci-fi production.
My smile actually hurts! This is wonderful. CS and SW - check. This is a nice one. Love how you blended the styles. They almost fight with each other. I think I'll throw the antagonist as being the TIE fighter. It really was a silly design. This one's pretty cool though. Keep 'em coming, I love it!
