LEGO’s impressive Star Wars Imperial Shuttle 75302 Building Kit was first released in 2021 and measures in at roughly 10 in. (25 cm) high, 9 in. (24 cm) long, and 14 in. (35 cm) wide. It’s a fun, flagship piece for populating “Star Wars” dioramas or creating your own perilous play missions to distant worlds or rendezvous with behemoth Star Destroyers planning a secret attack on some pesky Alliance outposts.
Accompanying the main starship model is a trio of LEGO minifigures representing a lightsaber-carrying Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, and an Imperial Officer packing a blaster pistol and handcuffs for transporting rebellious spies in desperate need of an intimate date with a hovering torture droid.
This detailed Imperial Shuttle also showcases an opening cockpit area to seat your capable pilot, a lift-up main cargo compartment cozy enough for a pair of LEGO minifigures, foldable upswept wings for take-off and landings, and two stud shooter weapons for close encounters.
