LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV officially announced

LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV officially announced”

In a land where everything must fit authentically within the Star Wars universe, selling regular Coca-Cola packaged products was a no go.

Captain Antilles minifigure is an updated version from 2009, while Princess Leia's skirt and Bail Organa are new for April 2019.

The creative forces behind the hit shows The Freemaker Adventures and LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars, Bill Motz and Bob Roth, will headline a LEGO Star Wars animation free-for-all featuring special guests Leland Chee (Lucasfilm) and Jason Cosler (LEGO Group)! The full press release and photo gallery from LEGO are included below.

The elongated hull can be removed to reveal a detailed cockpit with space for two Minifigures and you're also able to see the ship's conference area, too. The radar dish, for example, also functions as a handle to make the ship a little easier to transport. The sets were introduced at the American International Toy Fair in New York City that year and remain one of the most popular lines of Lego toys today. The set also includes 5 minifigures and an R2-D2 droid LEGO figure. When the mission is over, this unbelievable kids' buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection.

Updated versions of all five minifigs from the original Tantive IV are included: Princess Leia (complete with trousers to change into when the action heats up), C-3PO, R2-D2, Captain Antilles, and a Rebel Fleet Trooper.

Weapons include a blaster pistol and 3 blasters.

In fact, this year's Tantive IV comes with 21 more pieces (1,768 in total) than the UCS Rebel blockade runner did. It's 62cm long, so is still quite sizeable.

Available directly from LEGO Stores & shop.LEGO.com starting May 3rd, 2019.
