Luke, I Am Not Your Spaceship: 2,500 Piece LEGO Imperial Shuttle Coming Soon

June 21, 2010


LEGO is releasing a 2,504 piece Star Wars Imperial Shuttle this September for $260. For reference, that's four days' pay for me (plus two after-hour HJ's).

This beast is bigger than my old model, at 28 inches tall (71 centimeters) and 22 inches wide (57 centimeters) when the foldable wings are fully deployed. The cockpit allows you to sit figures inside, and it includes five minifigs:Darth Vader, Shuttle Pilot, Imperial Officer, Stormtrooper and Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi.

The Imperial Shuttle also has rotating double laser wing cannons, landing gear, and a display stand.

DO WANT. And not kinda want either. I'm talking really really want, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha. Now I know what you're thinking, "Jesus, did the GW really just quote Spice Girls lyrics?" And the answer, my friend, is f*** no. They stole that shit from me.

Hit the jump for another shot of the box and a video of a LEGO designer talking about the ship (skip to 1:50).
