A New Hope Star Destroyer Now Has the Ultimate LEGO Set

A New Hope Star Destroyer Now Has the Ultimate LEGO Set

From the Death Star to the Millennium Falcon, LEGO fans have emptied their piggy banks time and again to enjoy some unbelievable and complex builds - often made of thousands of grey blocks to make things more challenging.

The set will come with just two minifigures with blasters - a never-before-released Imperial Officer and Imperial Crew Member. It's based on the Star Destroyer we see at the very beginning of Star Wars: A New Hope, and even includes "an attachable, buildable scale version Tantive IV starship" the Empire is pursuing at the opening of the movie. Its 43-inch length makes it the longest Star Wars set on the market, but the 3,152-piece Super Star Destroyer set from 2011 was longer at 50 inches (124cm).

The Lego Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer is part of the Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series and takes the same approach as the mega Millennium Falcon released previously.

The UCS Imperial Star Destoryer is available in LEGO stores and online. Today they're unveiling an epic addition to the Ultimate Collectors Series to mark the anniversary.

It even includes a scale version of the Tantive IV itself, which looks minuscule in comparison to the huge new Lego set. Previous Star Wars related sets include the Millenium Falcon, The Betrayal at Cloud City and the Death Star. This galactic civil war UCS set also includes a display stand with informational fact plaque and 2 Imperial minifigures, making it the flawless LEGO Star Wars collectible for discerning fans.

Cue the music, and hail the arrival of the new LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer 75252! There's also a teeny-tiny Tantive IV ship to give this beast some scale. Well, that varies depending on where you live obviously, but on this side of the ocean it will set you back $699.99 United States dollars ($849.99 CAD), plus taxes of course. Everyone else can start building on October 1, 2019.
