It's a TIE fighter pilot!

 We are big fans of TIE fighters and their daring pilots. See, look, this was me in 2002, when I was gadding about the 501st Legion as TI-2058 (with Bunny as TK-3074)!

Anyway, back to our LEGO figure. Take it away, Bunny and Wookieepedia!

"TIE pilots served in the Imperial Navy by piloting the various TIE series starfighters.

Since the BRICK Lego site states he's a Tie-Defender Pilot (whatever) below is a description for those uninitiated:

The TIE/D Defender was a high-performance TIE series starfighter developed for the Imperial Navy shortly before the Battle of Endor. Representing a shift in starfighter design from previous TIE models, the ship featured a hyperdrive as well as deflector shields to allow it to operate independent of Imperial capital ships. The ship's speed and agility, combined with its firepower, made it arguably the most advanced starfighter available at the time.

TIE Fighter Pilots are just plain bad-ass...and so is this little guy. 5 out of 5 parsecs."
