Product code: 73250213



  • 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.

I have JLP partner discount and its still overpriced, but each to their own


I think you're misusing the word "overpriced" here, there is a difference between an item being priced too high for someone to justify buying, and it being overpriced for what it is.

While I agree Lego isn't the cheapest toy on the block, the fact that they are the biggest toy company in the world would suggest that have correctly identified their target market and set their prices accordingly. If they didn't sell anything then they would have to lower their prices, it's simple supply and demand.

I want a Ferrari, but i can't justify buying one, that doesn't mean they are overpriced, they are just expensive (for me). There's always going to be things we can't afford, that's life
Last time I bough something made by this Imperial organisation it had a fundamental design flow with its exhaust which was apparently done on purpose. Then some little upstart wannabe Jedi came and put a missile through it.

Good price
Just need the Falcon to drop, hopefully Smyths will do the £10 off for every £50, so around the £520 mark
Watch the YouTube vid if you are considering buying. It's hollow inside and not really 'playable'

Same I’ve been waiting for that, as I’ve just managed to save up all of the money for it, what time did they do that last year? I remember getting all of the Harry Potter sets so it must have been June or later

This price is still extortionate and should drop a lot more eventually. I remember when the 10221 Super Star Destroyer (RRP £349.99) which is a similar size was often around £250 on Amazon. Hold out for <£400 as it'll happen eventually. As for reselling it on eBay, be careful of scammers who will say that it's not as described. Investing in this is a HUGE risk.... BEWARE !!!
Cooling added as it's still way over-priced compared to previous models of similar size.
Great price for those who have JL partner discount, but still £412 is a lot of coin. Especially if you've already spent that much on the Falcon, and there is a Lamborghini to buy in the not too distant future!!

For those after the Falcon, i heard a couple of months back that it would be discontinued at the end of this year, it's status has changed now to Hard To Find as well which would support that rumour.

It’s been “hard to find” for over a year, but I still want one

Got Slave 1 and Snowspeeder from Smyths 2 years ago just before they were removed, at the right price point £130, just waiting on a £530 price and I will “invest”

Then where's the fun of not using your money to enjoy yourself now and again? Lego is a hobby for people you know, and hobbies aren't exactly cheap most of the time; people spend a ton on tech, video games and the like which are significantly more costly than Lego.

Won't happen before the next film
What a waste of money
Better than wasting money on smoking a lot, drinking a lot, buying a new phone every year (not everyone does of course but there are people who do do that). I'm not against them but there's worse things to waste money on.

You don't think it's worth buying this as an investment?
This was £650?!! £550 is a bargain?!! For about £5 worth of plastic and manufacturing?! I have no doubts that the Chinese could clone this and make a big profit selling it at £50. Disney sure are excellent at ripping off their own fan bases.

To be fair they are display items, for a piece this size of most things they aren't that pricey. And in terms of hours of activity it's pretty reasonable value. More than a few weekends of building involved for all but the extreme lego addict.

All in all pretty decent, and it keeps decent resale value. And frankly money only has relative value. If you have a few hundred quid a month disposable income it isn't a big deal, not like you can take the money with you and if it gives you pleasure it isn't a waste of money.
4784 pieces @ £550 = 11.5p each. Still seems overpriced for what it is.

Trust me, you've spent 100£s on something I never would. Does that mean you don't appreciate the value of money? No. Grow up and don't tell people how to spend their own money, that's not your business
“This isn’t the price you are looking for.....”
how much?> Is this £50 worth of lego and the other £500 for licensing costs to disney??!!!
Impressive, most impressive!
I find this set a bit dull and boring. I would rather spend millenium falcon if I could afford it ( and I don't drink (much) and smoke).
Makes me laugh when people say £50 worth of Lego, do you realise how many hours of effort have to go into designing this in the first place? The tooling required to manufacture those cheap pieces of plastic? The quality systems? The customer services that Lego have in place which are excellent? £50 probably pays for the materials.

All of these things cost money, sure, they have to give Disney their slice but it won't be that large.
i love this set and good reduction

No, the poster is not misusing the word overpriced you're just disagreeing with their opinion. The poster thinks the product is priced too highly, which is the very definition of overpriced. You think they're wrong because Lego is a successful company etc. It's one thing to disagree, another to control the language being used.

What a waste of money



couldn't you say that about all hobbies?
Does it fly?
My own benchmark for LEGO is roughly 10p per piece; we’ve got a number of the expensive sets (NASA is practically an automatic purchase, and there are a few of the big Town Square ones here, too) but the Star Wars sets seem pretty much priced to what that brand will bear; this would need to get under £500 for me to even consider, personally.

Not that I have room for it; it’s a simply huge build.
