As you probably remember we talked about the LEGO Star Wars summer sets a few weeks ago (see: 2013 LEGO Star Wars Summer Sets Pictures), but we didn’t have an image of the #75025 LEGO Star Wars Jedi Defender-class Cruiser. Since then the official images became available thanks to Eurobricks, so let’s take a look and see what we are getting! 🙂
The LEGO Star Wars Jedi Defended-class Cruiser is based on the Star Wars Old Republic video-game, and it is a quite nice looking starship. According to Wookieepedia (the Star Wars wiki) the Jedi Defender-class Cruiser was a light corvette based on a civilian ship, but it underwent considerable upgrades and retrofits to fulfill the unique needs of the Jedi, and thereby distanced itself from the civilian model. The Defender-class light corvette was intended to serve as a base of operations for Jedi on assignment throughout the galaxy, and as such the vessel could fill a variety of roles. The starship’s amenities and conference rooms allowed Jedi to carry out important diplomatic negotiations between parties on neutral ground, and the Defender’s powerful weapons and defense systems allowed it to serve as a starfighter in which skilled pilots could take on far larger capital ships. The Jedi used the Defender throughout the Cold War and subsequent Second Great Galactic War. Below is a picture depicting the original Jedi Defender-class Cruiser and the LEGO version. 🙂
As you can see, LEGO did an awesome job capturing the look and color-scheme of the Jedi Defender-class Cruiser. Below there are also some additional images of the different features of the #75025 LEGO Star Wars Jedi Defender-class Cruiser.
The #75025 LEGO Star Wars Jedi Defender-class Cruiser comes with 927 pieces and four minifigures: a Jedi Knight, a Jedi Consular, a Sith Warrior, and a Sith Trooper. Price is not yet known.
The #75025 LEGO Star Wars Jedi Defender-class Cruiser, along with the other LEGO Star Wars summer sets we talked about before, will be available in August. In the meantime you can check out the currently available LEGO Star Wars sets at the.
