This is the cheap way to get a star destroyer. You can use the big one if you want, but this is cheaper.

You only need the mini Tantive IV. Just pretend it's smaller when you do the chase and put it under the ship, or pretend the star destroyer is bigger.

Get it for the rebel minifigs. Also, make an interior for the opening scene. Like a MOC of the hallway.

Get it for the stormtrooper minifigs. Get 2, because in th opening scene you use 3, and in the scene where they arrest Leia, you use 6.

You need everything! Also, make another custom room, but this time with the hiding place for the Death Star plans and a hallway with R2 and 3PO.

Use this for Leia and Captain Antilles, and if you want to you could use the newer R2 and 3PO and use the Rebel for the opening scene, but I wouldn't advise it.
