Tantive IV Make & Take Build

To mark the release of 75244 Tantive IV set on May 3rd (for VIPs) and 4th (for the commoners), LEGO held free build sessions at their brand stores in North America and Europe for kids to build their own mini version of the famous blockade runner that was trying to deliver the Death Star plans, in the hands of Princess Leia, to the Rebel Alliance.

Thanks to our brothers Brick Fanatics there are instructions available for you to put your own together.

None of the parts in this build are special ones, and most fans would have these in their LEGO bucket or be able to source them through Bricklink.com.

Of course, this isn’t the first mini-scale Tantive IV from LEGO. There have been three others to date: included in the UCS 10030 Imperial Star Destroyer set in 2002, in the Planetary Series as 75011 Tantive IV & Alderaan (2013) and behind the fifteenth door of 75146 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (2016).

You don’t have to go out and buy the sets to add these mini Tantive IV constructions to your collection as the building instructions are freely available and parts can be picked up easily.

If you do find yourself caught by the building bug then have a look at this midi-scale UCS Rebel Blockade Runner simulant on Rebrickable.com.

However, if putting together one of your own isn’t something that interests you then head to eBay.com where there are a number of these available, including a few with original instructions.
