The Star Wars universe is full of iconic ships and vessels with extraordinary shapes. One of the most menacing has to be the Devastator Imperial Star Destroyer. The sharp points and stark grey exterior immediately show that this is a vessel that you don’t want to mess with. Amazingly, the team at LEGO have been able to recreate this look and shape with impressive realism. The Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer 75252 Lego Set isn’t going to be an easy build, with a 16+ rating and more than 4,700 pieces. But, this level of detail is essential to get a replica that looks like it came straight from the set.
The scale and detail of the build mean that this model lives up to its reputation
The exterior of the ship is a project that will require a careful hand and patient mindset as there are so many different bricks in different textures and shades of grey. The final result is worth the effort with all the fine details and layers. This includes space for the large radar dish, the exhausts and all the other weaponry. The finished build is 110cm long, 37cm high and 66cm wide.
The set is completed with a few other bonus features to set the scene. There is a scale model of the Rebel Tantive IV as well. This small model is dwarfed by the Devastator and makes the Imperial ship seem even more imposing. There are also two minifigures for the ship – an Imperial Officer and Imperial Crewmember – to make the set more fun and give builders a chance to play with it. These figures have blaster pistols in case the rebels get on-board. Of course, you can pair this ship up with any other in your collection to create new scenarios and battles. Finally, there is also a display stand so collectors can keep this model safe and show it off properly.
Fans of Star Wars don’t have long to wait until they can get their hands on this new model
LEGO says that it will be available on October 1st 2019. That means there is time for collectors to find space in their collection and plan some building time in their diary. The Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer 75252 Lego Set is sure to be a big hit with all those that have a soft spot for the original trilogy over the modern one. This set takes fans right back to where it all began and is sure to be loved by many.
