Celebrating the 20th anniversary of collaboration with Star Wars, LEGO will be launching an updated set for Tantive IV, the starship first appeared in the opening of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
The new Rebel blockade runner set includes 1768 pieces, and it’s bigger than expected as it measures two feet long when completed. LEGO has paid special attention on the details as the starship comes with a radar that doubles as a carry handle. Parts such as detachable escape pods, cockpit, interior with conference table, control console and more, not to mention the Bail Organa, Princess Leia, Captain Antilles, C-3PO and Rebel Fleet Trooper minifigures plus an R2-D2 droid figure are all thoughtfully included for fans to recreate scenes from the movie. Priced at US$ 199.99, it will be available to LEGO online store VIP on 3 May and to the public on 4 May.
