Late in 2002, several participants of the Starship Modeler Discussion Forums, Led by Bill "Tinman" Polan, issued an informal contest challenge - to build variants of the TIE fighter they'd like to see on screen.
The scenario and rules were simple:
You receive a call from ILM and are to design a new TIE for an upcoming Star Wars film. The scene will show vast formations of TIE variants as they are paraded in a show of strength after to a recent victory by the Empire. George wants to have the finished models on his desk by January 19, 2003 so he can make his selections for incorporation into the film.
|The result is what you see below.|
|TIE/Multi-Function Platform||TIE 01 -- Conrad Mitchell|
|TIE/Obliterator||TIE 02 -- Alfred Wong|
|TIE/Long Range Scout||TIE 03 -- Paul Mather|
|TIE/Walker||TIE 04 -- Larry G. Johnson|
|TIE/Ion - Fast Pursuit||TIE 05 -- Chris Marks|
|TIE/Construction Drone||TIE 06 -- Chris Marks|
|TIE/Infiltrator||TIE 07 -- William Polan|
