Well that is the music that precedes the super star destroyer appearance, no?

@andrelego ...And worth the price

My best guess is it will be just a normal Star Destroyer but done in UCS like the Falcon with a new and improved interior. That would be a nice improvement from the last one they did, especially because of the last UCS Star Destroyer came out of a decade ago.

Mind you, I wouldn't say no to a new UCS Super Star Destroyer either, I just think it more likely that it is just a Star Destroyer.

It's definitely an Imperial Star Destroyer. That's the rumor that's been flying around for a long time.

please be affordable, please be affordable...

According to the rumors it will indeed be an Imperial Star Destroyer and it will cost a whopping 700 dollars/euros.

They obviously will not use magnets like on the 2002 version but I hope they'll vastly improve the structural integrity. The frame of the 2002 version had the tendency to bend due to gravity.

Gravatar

I wouldn't hold my breath for affordable. I am guessing in the $800 USD range like the Falcon. The old Star Destroyer was just over 3,000 pieces but my guess is this one will be double that at least. Then you have the Star Wars markup.

I'll still buy it and complain the whole time.

The new Super Star Destroyer! Oh geez, wallet, I know we've had some rocky times lately, but brace yourself...

On a related note; what to do when your Wanted List exceeds the maximum prize level of a scratch off lotto ticket? I'm thinking maybe I'll buy multiple tickets at once...?

The shadow matches that of the Episode IV opening sequence. It plays the Imperial March. The heavy footsteps indicate weight...
This HAS to be the new UCS Star Destroyer!

Bring it on! I have been waiting for it to empty all my VIP points and leave the program now that they ruined it.

I am dreading the price....

@LegoSolo77 Black market organ sale is a viable alternative as well ;)

I'd wager its Imperial Star Destroyer over Super Star Destroyer its only been 8 years since the SSD and the ISD is much more iconic. If its the same size as the 2002 version I can see it going for the same price as the 2017 Falcon...another $1000 CAD set

Gravatar
By in United States,

Rumor for almost the last year is that it is a super star destroyer in the $500-600 range.

I am actually sad, they could have gone with an AT-AT but I suspect it is either an Empire Star Destroyer or a FO Star Destroyer.

Finally! Been waiting ages for an announcement!

By in United States,

I’m saying Star Destroyer. And with the Imperial Star Destroyers resurfacing in the Episode 9 footage, I would bet on that one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Imperial Star Destroyer is exciting! ?? I've repurposed all the parts of the 2002 edition. ??

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Like many I'm assuming this is the UCS Star Destroyer which I'm looking forward too seeing if it is.

Triangular shadow crossing the toy at the end… definitely a new Star Destroyer approaching.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm pretty certain it is a UCS ISD and not a Super Star. Just as the rumors said, but I really hope the rumored price is wrong. Even though I already have an ISD that will be far better than what LEGO makes, I'm still excited to see there rendition of it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lol I can't wait for UCS triangle

Gravatar
By in United States,

The thud and glass of water vibration gave me more of an AT-AT vibe than a Star Destroyer vibe. Though with that visual, it could also be an Imperial T-Rex (or maybe its the power trying to come back on).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

There will be a worldwide shortage of grey ABS very shortly then.

By in Netherlands,

This may sound odd, but that video of 11 seconds showed way too much to be called a teaser. Its shadow was pointy, and the angle tells me that it is going to be an UCS Super Star Destroyer. And that makes me confident to say that this guy is going to be very poor and is going to be very busy, very soon!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

It will be an UCS First Order Star Destroyer... and red shirt guy goes like: "Is this supposed to be a late april fools joke?"

Gravatar
By in United States,

Jeez, LEGO, slow down! I don't have any more room in my house for an UCS ISD. Give me about 6 months to build an addition to my house.

Join the Empire - our ships are big triangles!

Are you guys going to mention all the photos of the 2019 Star Wars sets that have been out for weeks?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

luckely Disney ruined my joy of Star Wars, what means I don't have to spend so much money on Lego Star Wars anymore.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hmm. Triangular shadow. Stealth fighter jet? Bow of the Titanic? Imperial Star Destroyer? Nah! Its the pyramid spaceship from Stargate.

Gravatar
By in United States,

$600=$700 price tag and rumored piece count was 4700 , would love to get one but it'll have to wait.... would make for a awesome birthday gift to myself though.. or I could trade my Falcon in for it ??

@psychman7 : If there is one thing i have learned this year with T-Rex rampage, rumors are only rumors until they’re Confirmed. Till then, ...

Gravatar
By in France,

In haste to discover the final result. Even if I know this one is out of my price range, with all new existing parts, colours and techniques, it should be one of the most beautiful rendition of the iconic ship.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If they are just announcing it I would guess
A Star Destroyer,
Possibly a special Event sale at midnight in London and New York?

Not quite on the same scale as the UCS Millenium Falcon.
£789.99 and 999.99 dollars.
about 9800 pieces or maybe breaking the 10000 barrier?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Huh... and here I thought the Star Destroyer rumours got debunked...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hate teaser videos like this -- just release a great announcement.

My 2 cents that nobody asked for. =')

Gravatar
By in France,

Unfortunately it seems that the UCS ISD will cost 699.99€...or $... For just 4784 pieces, as it seemed to be confirmed on Hothbricks... Very, very expensive for such a piece count... But let's wait for the weight of the beast, there might be some big and heavy plates to account for...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I bet there is already one being built in brickset towers ready for review ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Star Destroyer -- YES!!!! Crossing my fingers that it has some decent interior detail/playset features.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

As an avid collector of these UCS sets, I really hope this isn’t just a better version of a model they’ve done previously. There are plenty of other ships they haven’t yet done that would be great to see given the UCS treatment. An AT-AT, for instance! But also Luke’s landspeeder or Home One! Holy cow.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

any individual set that gets its own marketing like this is a set thats going to be well beyond my price range, thats for sure

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Is it a set? I thought video game originally...

Gravatar
By in Switzerland,

It might be large enough to dock the New Tantive IV

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Scottchay Brickset Towers, eh? One for Huw and another one for Huwbot? :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The shadow certainly looks SSD shaped, rather than ISD, in at least one shot. But foreshortening can do a lot to a triangle, and the ISD is more due for a refresh and features heavily in the trailers for the new movie.

If it’s an ISD, I’ll buy it, no question. An SSD... probably not.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gosh I’ve seen so many sites claim the 4700 piece $700 Star destroyer and as much as I’d love a new SD, that price to part is ... kind of horrifying.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Maybe it's just the new Star Wars sets that we've all known about for weeks now?

Gravatar
By in United States,

It would be hilarious if everyone is wrong and it's a new version of the UCS Jedi Starfighter.

Gravatar
By in France,

weird, they already released the Jurassik Park D2C

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think we all know what it will be, the question is will there be a set designer signing event at LEGO stores (fingers crossed London) and a special giveaway like the MF?

Announce 5th September, VIP event 16th / 17th September ?

@commandervideo
A UCS Luke's Landspeeder will send MandRproductions's mind over the edge.
:'-) it will be the eighth or ninth variation. do we need a UCS one too? :'-)

Gravatar
By in Turkey,

I have the first one, but I'm really curious about how this one is going to look.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The triangular shape moving slowly to the imperial march, no question it’s a star destroyer. Just a matter of which one or kind they chose

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Fair enough the shadow is pointy and would have you believe it’s a triangular ship but what’s with the glass of water? Why would a starship generate a ripple in the water? The shadow could be mis-direction. It’s a UCS Taun Taun

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's an Imperial Class SD, not one of the new Resurgence Class from the First Order; the latter has a cross-shape extension from the bow.

Rumors are $700 USD and 4,000 pieces. I hope it's not that expensive; either way I'll still buy it. It'll look great next to my 10030.

Gravatar
By in United States,

A UCS SSD or SD has been the rumor forever but given the water shaking as in a ground impact, dog toys and bowls it has me wondering about an UCS Motorized AT-AT? Maybe with some new Powered UP elements? I laughed at a comment on the twitter feed mentioning the "chicken toy" and so perhaps its a UCS AT-ST aka chicken Walker? Now I'm nervous. Would be nice for once to NOT know what the set is for a change. IF AT-AT or AT-ST perhaps my wallet will also feel better. I have been cringing at the idea of another $500+ set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If it's a motorized controllable AT-AT, I'll buy it day one. A giant Imperial Star Destroyer will take some time, but I'd still get it. Anything else doesn't interest really me. I just want something nice to blow my VIP points on.

@lego lover2008:
ROFL

By in United Kingdom,

Looks like another very big UCS Star Wars set on it's way. I'm a little conflicted though. On one hand I'm really excited for anything Star Wars and UCS, escpecially super detailed display sets. But on the other hand I'm tinged with disapointment that if it's way big and expensive the probability of ever owning one is low.

I'm a realist and know that I can't have my cake and eat it. Super detailed makes for a great model, but comes at a cost. Such is life.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I sort of wouldn't mind if it is an AT-AT, but definitely not an AT-ST (not worth getting it now). However, I'm pretty certain that the new UCS is a ISD.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

It's not impossible that they're revealing a UCS AT-AT and a UCS Star Destroyer at the same time...

Looks like the rumors were correct. It is a UCS ISD as many people have said.

Anyone have any idea what time to expect the announcement? It's been the 5th for hooooouuuuurrrrrrrssss now and I'm getting impatient!
