We Saw 'The Mandalorian' Footage At Star Wars Celebration, Looks Great

LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV playset LEGO Star Wars returns to A New Hope with 1,700-piece 75244 Tantive IV [News]

Throwback methods, like building and using ship models for spaceflight (which they showed a small featurette documenting) will continue tying this Star Wars step forward to its source.

The cruiser measures two feet long (62 cm), 5 inches high (14 cm) and 7 inches wide (19 cm). The radar dish also doubles as a convenient carry handle, which makes it flawless for flying around the room. Expect to see their armor on display in the show - which is both a cool way to incorporate a dedicated fan community into this fictional world and a slick cash-saving tactic for Disney.

As new planets, new aliens, and new ships (including the Mandalorian's, the Razorcrest) will all debut during the show, it was paramount to include the familiar - which is one of the reasons why the Mandalorian himself is front and center with his iconic armor.

The adventures of Ahsoka Tano will continue when Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 7 hits Disney Plus streaming service, but we don't know much yet. When the mission is over, this wonderful kids' buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection. R2-D2 is there too, though I wouldn't count him as a minifigure, and it seems you can swap Leia's skirt for pants if you'd prefer.

Updated versions of all five minifigs from the original Tantive IV are included: Princess Leia (complete with trousers to change into when the action heats up), C-3PO, R2-D2, Captain Antilles, and a Rebel Fleet Trooper.

The final tally of minifigures was 36,440, easily breaking the previous record of 35,210.

Captain Antilles minifigure is an updated version from 2009, while Princess Leia's skirt and Bail Organa are new for April 2019. It is, however, an impressively detailed and very large set.

Trowbridge explained that this holocron - a repository of knowledge accessible through the force in the Star Wars universe - would become part of Galaxy's Edge, although he did not go into detail as to where or how it would be featured.

LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV will be available exclusively at shop.LEGO.com from May 3.
