- Ideal for any Jedi, Padawan, Sith or Bounty Hunter daring enough to take on the challenge
- Fully assembled, the Imperial Star Destroyer measures over 44cm high, 110cm long and 66cm wide
- Contains 4784 pieces and includes an Imperial Officer and Crewmember minifigures
- Also includes an attachable, buildable scale version Tantive IV starship for added Star Wars: A New Hope authenticity
- Comes with a display stand with informational fact plaque for the ultimate display piece
An icon of the Star Wars legacy, the Imperial Star Destroyer looks just as menacing now as it did over 40 years ago. From chasing Leia and Tantive IV above Tatooine, to ominously covering Jedha City in darkness; to being ripped in half as Holdo jumped to lightspeed, there's not a moment from the series when we've not been in awe of the Empire's capital ship. So obviously we had quite high expectations of LEGO to come up with something special for this model. And as per usual, we're happy to say they delivered.
Measuring just over 1 metre long and made with over 4,700 LEGO pieces, the Ultimate Collector Series of the Imperial Star Destroyer captures all the authentic details of the starship as it appeared in the opening scene of Star Wars: A New Hope.
From its signature swivelling guns, tilting radar dishes and huge engine exhausts, to the smaller, more intricate surface detailing, LEGO has made sure this model is for true fans of the series. Plus, of course, it comes with a buildable scale version of the Rebels' Tantive IV starship to chase down.
This galactic civil war UCS set also includes a display stand with informational fact plaque and 2 Imperial minifigures, making it the perfect LEGO Star Wars collectable for discerning fans.
Don't be daunted by how challenging a build this might seem either. For an epic set of this size (and being one of the largest LEGO sets ever), part of the fun comes with the experience of the build. Although you could go Han Solo on this, we quite like the idea of calling your furry friend from Kashyyyk (or wherever they reside) and building this together, reminiscing in the memories of the entire Star Wars Saga and reminding yourselves why you fell in love with the franchise in the first place.

Unpackaged weight of the product
The company that was destined to become LEGO started life as being a small workshop that produced wooden toys, run by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932. The name ‘LEGO’ was adopted in 1934, coming from the Danish phrase ‘leg godt’, which means ‘play well’. It wasn’t until 1947 that they started producing plastic toys, with the first version of the now infamous interlocking bricks coming in 1949.
They weren’t quite the bricks that people are used to nowadays, being made from a different material and having a slightly different locking system. It was actually Christiansen’s son Godtfred Kirk that saw the potential for the bricks to become a tool for creative play and in 1958, the modern brick design was born. From this date, despite variation in the design and purpose of individual pieces over the years, each remains compatible in some way with previous pieces. So you could have a LEGO set from 1958 and it would still be completely compatible with a modern set.
Since the 1960, thousands of sets have been released covering everything from Aliens to the Wild West. The only area that the company has never tackled directly is military-themed sets, because Ole Kirk set a policy that they must never make war seem like child’s play. The largest ever LEGO set to date is a scale-model of the Taj Mahal, which was made out of 5922 pieces.
The LEGO Group's motto is ‘det bedste er ikke for godt’, which roughly translates to "only the best is the best". Ole Kirk Christiansen came up with this phrase to encourage workers to always produce the highest quality toys possible.
Nowadays, LEGO makes a vast range of toys for all ages, as well as teaching materials for children, which are distributed in over 130 countries. The company has approximately 10,000 employees and is the world's third largest manufacturer of play materials.More from LEGO
