Say goodbye to all your bank balance, my lego-loving friends: Lego has just unveiled its next set of the Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series, and it's a great one-of-a-kind. The biggest thing about the length. And it has a huge price that can keep up.
Take a look at the 110 cm Lego Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer, which is made up of 4,784 pieces and costs £ 650 of your own pounds.
Yes, six hundred and fifty pounds, This thing is the same price as the gigantic Millennium Falcon from 2017. But I hear you cry, it has nearly 3,000 pieces less. The Millennium Falcon was the largest set that Lego ever built with 7,541 units. This new Imperial Star Destroyer has "only" 4,784 pieces. What seems like a massively reduced amount, considering that both sets have the same price. But I suppose we have to keep in mind that the Star Destroyer will have much more big Pieces compared to the Falcon. The entire outside of the ship is made up of large, gray plates, while the Millennium Falcon had many more small parts.
This will be the fifth Imperial Star Destroyer Lego has ever built, and of course the largest. The first two came in 2007: There was a respectably large set of 1,367 pieces and a previous UCS set of 3,096 pieces. In 2010 there was a midi set with only 423 parts, and the last one was in 2014 with 1,359 parts.
The 2019 Ultimate Collector's Series set is packed with details we've never seen before. It's similar to the previous UCS set, but its extra size makes it more impressive. It also comes with a kickstand and the Ultimate Collector's badge, along with two minifigures: the Imperial Officer and an Imperial Crew Member. There is also a tiny Tantive IV ship that gives this beast a certain scale. As if it needs it; It's over a meter long to scream out loud.
If, for the second time in a few years, you somehow have £ 650 left for a Lego set, the Imperial Star Destroyer will be available to Lego VIP members in just two weeks on September 18th. All others can buy it on October 1st. But if you buy it, you might as well become a Lego VIP member – you get £ 5 worth of points for every £ 100 spent, which is £ 30 to put back in your bag for another purchase.
