Defender
The Defender is a one-man heavy space starfighter.
About this creation
Thank you for checking out my LEGO creation! The Defender is a one-man heavy star fighter with quad engines as well four pylon mounted dual heavy laser cannons. It is used extensively for defense on outer world bases and colonies. The overall design of the Defender is really a hodge-podge of different inspirations, including the X-Wing fighter and the Gunstar from "The Last Starfighter." I built this model over Valentine's Day weekend 2015.


The Defender's combination of speed and heavy laser firepower make it an excellent defense interceptor. The large cockpit canopy allows the pilot a good all around view.


Semi-profile view from the starboard side.


Head-on view of the Defender.


In addition to the massive pylon mounted heavy cannons, the Defender also features smaller close combat lasers that can rotate and swivel.


A semi profile view from the port side.


Side view. The spread of the pylon mounted heavy cannons makes the Defender very effective when defending against larger attacking vessels.


Rear view showing the propulsion system and central hyperdrive. Although mainly an orbital interceptor fighter, the Defender is equipped with a hyperdrive for interplanetary missions.


Another rear view showing the details of the central hyperdrive core.


A semi-rear view showing the circular side multi-directional thrusters mounted on the wings.


Probably my favorite view of the Defender.


A view of the front-underside showing the ventral details, including the extending ladder used during landing.


The Defender actually lands vertically on its four pylons.


Extending the Defender's landing platform and ladder.


Exiting the control cabin. It's a tight squeeze, definitely not a suitable craft for Porkins.

5 STARS, Sir! I detect design-cues inspired by 'The Last Starfighter', 'Babylon 5' STARFURY and maybe some 'Space Battleship Yamato' (AKA: Star Blazers in U.S.). I get a sense that with the right real-life tech this may be a configuration that companies such as NASA may one day be able to bring to life. Seems like a function and form are in balance here. Very inspiring!

Mr. Jassim, wow... when it lands the "Gun Star" influence really jumps out! You took the very best part from an otherwise unfortunate film! In addition to that and the X-wing, do I see some influence from the Starfury fighters from Babylon 5? Regardless, this is a perfect example of insperation and development. You have taken these notions as a start point and developed them to outstanding effect! I love the detail showing the pilot using the extendible ladder. Another great ship for your fleet. And as usual, very well presented. Attack!

Thanks Michael. Never really watched much Babylon 5 but I do know about the Starfury. I think its engines are on the pylons, right? For me, the use of the blue tail fin pieces were essential for weight reduction and to ensure the pylons extended back far enough in landing mode. I tried brick-built configurations but they just added too much bulk and the angle was just wrong.

I love the use of colour and the brick-built solid swooshability of this ship. A great shape too. The reversed windscreen and cockpit opening mechanism are brilliant and original and make this a superb spacecraft. Great design and great fun too.

You still have this unique touch. At first sight, no doubt it's one of your creation. Agressive design, different textures (love the color scheme with white stripes) and details everywhere! Special quote for the access bay, that was brilliant! Awesome fighter!!

Daniel's back, all is right! Wicked little ship with tons of well thought out details. Love the egress for the vertical landing, no wonky landing gear to engineer. Clever canopy, smart angles. And of course the swooshability test is always the icing. Excellent!

Awesome. Well detailed and rather unique. Bet landing it is rather awkward.
