Star Wars fan’s Lego Destroyer is 32kg of awesome

In the quest for ultimate Star Wars fandom, this guy probably just won.

A Reddit user has built an incredible Lego version of the Imperial Star Destroyer Tyrant from Star Wars, and it’s freaking huge.

The Tyrant, created by /u/raskolnikov-, is over 1.4 metres long, and weighs a staggering 32kg, making it significantly larger than Lego’s own version of the ship.

Speaking to TrustedReviews, Raskolnikov revealed that around 25,000 bricks went into the project, costing him thousands of dollars.

“I believe the cost is probably somewhere over $2,000, but again it’s really hard to say,” he tells us. “I bought a lot more pieces than I actually ended up using in the ship, so if you count those it’d be a lot more.”

“I like to think that those pieces are just building up my Lego collection, which did not include many grey pieces before this build,” he adds.

“The Tyrant has about twenty times the volume of the 75055 Star Destroyer below it,” says Raskolnikov.

But it gets even better, because while it looks cool from the outside, the inside hasn’t been neglected. Raskolnikov actually built an entire interior with different levels and rooms, all manned by Lego minifigures.

“It was a high priority for me to have everything come apart as elegantly as possible,” Raskolnikov explains. “The roof sections retain the correct angle when they are removed, and you can simply lift the superstructure off the ship.”

He continues: “The only individual piece that you ever have to remove is a technic axle that secures the bridge. The bridge stays in place without it, but I’m afraid that I’ll bump the ship and send it flying if it’s not secured.”

The Tyrant even comes equipped with its own TIE Interceptors, because how else would you defend a giant Lego starship?

The Tyrant was part of Darth Vader’s Death Squadron, and took part in the Battle of Hoth during Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

It was an Imperial I-class Star Destroyer that was eventually disabled thanks to shots from the v-150 ion cannon manned by the Rebel Alliance.
