Previous big LEGO builds that Australia has played host to was a giant Death Star in 2017 and an over-sized Millennium Falcon in 2015. It seems that with this new addition to the calendar there’s a two year cycle, and we’re predicting a titanic Tantive IV, for no other reason thn that’s what we want to see!
Rebelscum caught up with Jens during Star Wars Celebration Chicago and pumped him for details. The only comment he would commit to is “LEGO is keeping it very secret” – so secret that maybe Jens doesn’t know?
And if all of this isn’t exciting enough for you, there’s a chance to win the latest UCS set – the impressive 75192 Millennium Falcon!
