Disney Partners with Coca-Cola for Star Wars Galaxy's Edge

The 950 km/h ship was first seen in the opening scenes of Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977.

"We can think of no better way to start the next 40 years of Star Wars storytelling than to base it on the love, the passion, the fandom that you all have, and make that the foundation of all the Star Wars stories we tell in the future".

75244 Tantive IV recreates the Rebel cruiser's signature details including its iconic shape, elongated hull, detachable escape pods, elevating gun turrets, cargo hold and rear engines... all fitting of a consular ship on a diplomatic mission. The full press release and photo gallery from LEGO are included below.

In addition to the already-announced Star Wars 20th anniversary sets, Lego has now announced an additional model of the epic Tantive IV. The radar dish, for example, also functions as a handle to make the ship a little easier to transport.

The set is over 1,750 pieces and includes multiple minifigs.

"Two decades' worth of products, content and collaboration between two of the world's most beloved brands will be showcased at Booth No. 1616 at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago, giving fans of all ages the chance to relive their fandom and build excitement for what's to come this fall", The Lego Group said in a statement. When the mission is over, this fantastic kids' buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection. It's 62cm long, so is still quite sizeable.

Includes 5 LEGO® Star WarsTM minifigures: Bail Organa, Princess Leia, Captain Antilles, C-3PO and a Rebel Fleet Trooper, plus an R2-D2 droid LEGO figure.

The Tantive IV will be exclusive to Lego stores and the Lego website, and will cost £180.
