7664 TIE Crawler is a Star Wars Expanded Universe set released in 2007. The set contains 548 parts including two Shadow Stormtrooper minifigures. This set was available for a limited time only, as there was a finite quantity of TIE Crawlers.
The TIE Crawler featured a traditional TIE-series cockpit, and had two laser cannons attached to it. Attached the the cockpit were two track frames which accomodated for the Crawler's tank tracks. These treads could move if the TIE Crawler was pushed along a surface. On each track frame, there were two concealed red laser cannons which could be pulled out and rotated. Below the cockpit, there was a section where a missile could be placed, and 'flicked' out, in a similar fashion to the smaller flick-fire missiles.
The Shadow Stormtrooper minifigure debuted in this set, and were both armed with Blaster pistols.
TIE Crawlers (also called Century Tanks) were Imperial heavy tanks, employed primarily by the Imperial Remnant after the collapse of the Empire. Their predecessors were the TIE Maulers. TIE Crawlers were also utilized by the Confederation during the Second Galactic Civil War. They were armed with one light and two medium laser cannons, and held one pilot. This vehicle could achieve speeds of up to 90 km/h. At least one served the Corellian Security Force.
- The TIE Crawler was the first set entirely from the Star Wars Expanded Universe (the first set with EU content was 10131 TIE Collection, which includes a TIE/d Fighter).
- This is one of the two TIE series sets (that isn't a TIE Advanced) that does not include a TIE Pilot.
