LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV officially announced

LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV playset

LEGO TANTIV IV Soars Into Stores This May

Star Wars fans explore the Lego Star Wars exhibit at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.

At the entrance to the exhibition hall, toy company Lego has created an image of the helmet of the notorious Star Wars henchman, the Stormtrooper, made up entirely of their small Stormtrooper figurines.

Interestingly the set is not labeled as an Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS) set nor as a Master Builder Series (MBS) playset, though the packaging is similar to both.

Other details include detachable escape pods, elevating turret guns, spring-loaded shooters and eleven engines at the rear of the craft.

Lego and "Star Wars" have been working together ever since the first prequel "Star Wars" film, "The Phantom Menace", was released in 1999.

The next LEGO Star Wars exclusive set will be 75244 Tantive IV from the opening of the original 1977 movie.

Lightning star Nikita Kucherov suspended one game
Victor Hedman and Josh Anderson were also ejected from the game in the ensuing scrum. The NHL announced Kucherov will be having a hearing related to his hit on Saturday.

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.

Though it was previously announced that IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth was set to end its 20-year run this fall, we now know that this iconic Disney nighttime spectacular will officially close on September 30 2019. The radar dish, for example, also functions as a handle to make the ship a little easier to transport.

This highly detailed building toy construction set includes over 1,750 pieces. When the mission is over, this unbelievable kids' buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection.

"LEGO Star Wars starship measures over 5" (14cm) high, 24" (62cm) long and 7" (19cm) wide. It also comes with five minifigures in the form of an updated Captain Antilles, a rebel soldier, C-3PO, Princess Leia (with her updated skirt) and the never-before-released Bail Organa.

The Tantive IV will be exclusive to Lego stores and the Lego website, and will cost £180.
