Lego Star Wars TIE Fighter Time Lapse

After recently completing a LEGO X-Wing StarFighter build, I decided it needed a companion, its arch nemesis, the Imperial TIE Fighter.

The TIE Fighter (Twin Ion Engine Fighter) was the pride of the Imperial fleet. Carried aboard Star Destroyers and battle stations, TIE fighters are single-pilot vehicles designed for fast-paced dogfights with Rebel X-wings and other starfighters.

Standing over 9″ (23cm) tall and 6″ (17cm) wide, this LEGO model comes equipped with dual flick missiles and an opening cockpit. Included also are 4 minifigures: TIE Fighter Pilot, Imperial Officer, Death Star Trooper and an R5-J2 Droid.

The time lapse was created using 1 photo per 3 seconds played back at 25 fps. It was photographed using a Canon EOS 7D with a total of 1697 images. The images were then color adjusted in Lightroom 5 with the final time lapse created in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Check out the video below in glorious 4K and let me know what you think.

And the finished model…
