If you are a LEGO Star Wars fan, you probably know already that LEGO released an earlier version of this ship in 2009. The #10198 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV (see below) came with 1,408 pieces, and the two ships are quite similar in both size and design. If you already have the earlier ship, it will be interesting to compare the two and see all the updates and upgrades.
