in LEGO Star Wars

Yesterday, LEGO revealed the #75244 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV, which will be available just in time for Star Wars Day (May the 4th). Notice that although the set is fairly large, it is not designated as an Ultimate Collector Series set, or a LEGO Star Wars Master Builder Series set (you can read more about the designations here). Anyhow, below are the details, pictures, pricing info, and more on the #75244 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV . Read thought the information and lets discuss! 🙂

Own an iconic Rebel blockade runner – Tantive IV! Build, play and display a legendary Star Wars starship! This LEGO Star Wars interpretation of Tantive IV, seen fleeing from an Imperial Star Destroyer in the opening moments of Star Wars: A New Hope, faithfully recreates all of the Rebel cruiser’s signature details, including an elongated hull, detachable escape pods, elevating gun turrets, cargo hold and 11 massive engines at the back. Remove the hull plating of this fantastic LEGO Star Wars vehicle to reveal a detailed 2-minifigure cockpit, conference area with table, weapon rack and a control console with 2 seats. The radar dish also doubles as a convenient carry handle, which makes it perfect for flying around the room. When the mission is over, this amazing kids’ buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection. The set also includes 5 minifigures and R2-D2.

  • Includes 5 LEGO Star Wars minifigures: Bail Organa, Princess Leia, Captain Antilles, C-3PO, and a Rebel Fleet Trooper, plus R2-D2 .
  • Tantive IV LEGO Star Wars construction toy features a radar that doubles as a carry handle, 2 detachable escape pods with space for a minifigure inside, opening cargo hold and removable cargo box, opening 2-minifigure cockpit, rotating and elevating stud-shooting turrets on top and 2 spring-loaded shooters underneath. The top hull detaches to reveal a detailed interior including a conference table, weapon rack and a control console with 2 seats for the minifigures.
  • Weapons include a blaster pistol and 3 blasters.
  • Also includes a pair of electrobinoculars.
  • Captain Antilles minifigure is an updated version from 2009, while Princess Leia’s skirt and Bail Organa are new for April 2019.
  • This highly detailed building toy construction set includes over 1,750 pieces.
  • Recreate amazing moments from the opening scene of Star Wars: A New Hope or play out your own exciting adventures!
  • This LEGO Star Wars starship measures over 5” (14cm) high, 24” (62cm) long and 7” (19cm) wide.
  • Includes 1,768 pieces.
  • Recommended for ages 12+.

Above, you can see all the minifigures in the set, and below are some additional images from the press-release package.

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.

The #75244 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV will be available directly from LEGO on May 3rd. Prices are as follows: US $199.99 – CA $269.99 – DE €199.99 – UK £179.99 – FR €219.99 – DK 1799DKK – AUD $329.99 (Euro pricing varies by country). For more information and details visit the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Yes, I’ve been waiting for this set to come back again. It also has play ability which is how a Lego set should be. I know there are those that like to display Lego sets that are ment to be displayed only but, you can also display playability sets as well. I may have to wait awhile to get this set because I have other sets in my radar for now. Besides , you know that it’s going to be sold out the first weekend it comes out.

Kinda on the fence with this one. Buy this model and then risk the chance of a UCS version coming down the pipeline in a few years. On the other hand, I missed the standard Llambda shuttle and ended up buying the UCS version a few years later. So that did work in my favor.

Oh, and also to consider if a UCS model of the Tantive IV comes out, it’s gonna be well more than the standard $200 UCS models, clearly.

Now if someone bought me that one for my birthday… I’d not complain. 😀

Yes, with all these re-release it is harder to plan ahead. There are all those “what ifs”. I would say, if you enjoy the set buy it, and if something else comes down the line later, you can always make a decision then. 😀

Well, I wasn’t expecting this. But it makes sense. I like it. And isn’t this is the first time we get Bail Organa?

Yeah, apparently it is.

So they ditched both the Master Builder and UCS designation? Shouldn’t this set be Master Builder? I don’t mind, as it just causes confusion and angry comments and controversies. I just wanted to confirm.

Yeah, it appears that they might have. Although you never know with LEGO. Sometimes they retire things then bring them back.

Did you guys see the Episode IX trailer? Is Palpatine back?

Yeah, I saw it! And that sounds like good old Palpatine. These Force people just won’t ever die! 😈

I think it’s a little lackluster for the 20th anniversary AND SW day. I was expecting something new and awesome, or a truly epic remake. I don’t know it just doesn’t appeal to me like, OMG I have to buy this on the first day!
