An icon of the Galactic Empire is headed to LEGO Stores later this month.
The ominous ship that first wowed audiences in the opening moments of Star Wars: A New Hope (1977) is being brought to life in brick form as the LEGO Ultimate Collector Series Imperial Star Destroyer (75252). Known as the Devastator, the one-time flagship of Darth Vader includes 4,784 pieces and features such as swiveling blasters, a tilting radar dish, huge engine exhaust ports, and intricate surface detail.
The set comes with a display stand and plaque, along with minifigures of an Imperial Officer and Imperial Technician. The set also includes a buildable scale replica of the Rebel Alliance’s Tantive IV Blockade Runner — best known as the ship that carried Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, and the Death Star plans.
This impressive set will be available at LEGO Store on Sept. 18 for VIP Members and on Oct. 1 for everyone else with an MSRP of $699.99 in the U.S.
LEGO previously made Star Destroyers in smaller configurations, including its first take on an Ultimate Collector Series version back in 2002. There was also a Super Star Destroyer produced in 2011.
Next month, new products from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will hit stores on Triple Force Friday, Oct. 4.
