The outpost is a two storey building with a jail cell and a guard room on the ground floor and a cannon on the first floor. On the ground level is also a water-filled archway where boats can pass through. The guard room contains a table with two cups. In front of this room is a hatch under which four gold coins are hidden. The prison cell can be reached via a back door and its front wall with the lattice is fixed on a pin and can be turned to the side. The cannon on the first floor is mounted on a 4x4 turntable. There is the small lantern that hangs in front of the jail cell.
- This is seen by some as the successor to the 6267 Lagoon Lock-Up (available 1991-1993) in terms of size and features.
- 6263 Imperial Outpost when introduced was the sole Imperial Guards set available worldwide, as all other of the Guards' sets released in 1992-93 had been discontinued.
- While the Imperial Guards was replaced with the Imperial Armada faction in 1996, 6263 Imperial Outpost remained available that year reclassified as part of the Armada side.
