|TIE Advanced Prototype|
Quote from LEGO.com
The Inquisitor's TIE Advanced was the personal TIE Advanced v1 prototype TIE fighter entrusted to the Inquisitor in his mission to hunt down Jedi for the Galactic Empire. On the Empire Day celebration on Lothal five years before the Battle of Yavin, the Inquisitor used it to pursue rogue Jedi Padawan Kanan Jarrus and the Lothal rebels after a "terrorist attack" in Capital City. Later, following the Inquisitor's death aboard the Sovereign, Jarrus and Ezra Bridger stole it to escape the exploding Star Destroyer and rejoin with their own transport. The same model of TIE would also be used by the Seventh Sister and other Inquisitors prior to their deaths, with one being stolen by Darth Maul as he made his escape form the planet Malachor.
This TIE Advanced was equipped with a cockpit access hatch, targeting sensors and solar collectors. Its special folding wings allowed it greater speed than the 1,200 kph of a standard TIE fighter. It boasted an armament of two laser cannons and could carry up to 20 missile shells. Unlike the production version of the v1, the Inquisitor's personal ship also had life support in the cockpit, allowing it to be flown without a flight suit if desired. It also lacked a hyperdrive, which meant that it relied on capital ships for long-range transportation, like most of the TIE models.
