LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV officially announced


The entire display was roughly 20 feet tall by 20 feet wide (6 meters by 6 meters), arranged in the shape of an iconic Stormtrooper helmet.

Tantive IV LEGO Star Wars construction toy features a radar that doubles as a carry handle, 2 detachable escape pods with space for a minifigure inside, opening cargo hold and removable cargo box, opening 2-minifigure cockpit, rotating and elevating stud-shooting turrets on top and 2 spring-loaded shooters underneath.

In addition to the already-announced Star Wars 20th anniversary sets, Lego has now announced an additional model of the epic Tantive IV.

This set is more modest at 1,768 pieces but is still set to be a building challenge for ages 12 and over. That gives you three weeks to make room in your Lego budget and clear your schedule so you can complete the build in time for your May the Fourth celebration! Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Diego Luna is set to reprise his role as Cassian Andor in a live-action prequel series to the 2016 film. That film was released in 2018. R2-D2 is there too, though I wouldn't count him as a minifigure, and it seems you can swap Leia's skirt for pants if you'd prefer. Princess Leia feature both a new printed skirt as well as alternative white legs (so she can sit down).

The series also stars Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito and more.
