LEGO’s Imperial Star Destroyer Is Bigger Than the (LEGO) Death Star
There has been a disturbance in your bank account. Can you feel it?
That’s because LEGO announced today a massive Star Wars set coming to stores this fall. It’s the Imperial Star Destroyer, and at a whopping 4,784 pieces — several hundred pieces more than the LEGO Death Star. Although not quite as big as the LEGO Millennium Falcon, it is still one of the largest LEGO sets ever. Once assembled, it’s a full 43 inches long. It includes a stand (cause otherwise this thing ain’t gonna balance on its bottom) and two different exclusive minifgures: An Imperial Officer and an Imperial Crew Member. Kinda feels like more than two dudes would be required to fly this thing, but hey — I’ve never been inside an Imperial Star Destroyer, so who am I to say?
The pictures of this LEGO set are incredible. Take a look at a few of the angles:
It even comes with a tiny LEGO Tantive IV, so you can recreate the famous opening Star Wars, with the little Rebel ship getting chased and then captured by the gigantic Imperial Destroyer. (You might want to invite a couple friends over to help you hold this sucker.) Look at this cute lil’ ship!
LEO’s Imperial Star Destroyer goes on sale on October 1 (or September 18 for LEGO VIP members). It costs a whopping $699.99 dollars.
