The LEGO Star Wars Creative Lead at the LEGO Group said: “There is always a huge responsibility to deliver quality design and the set Hans has made is incredible, especially the size. We knew our fans would want to show this model, but we didn’t want to compromise on scale with respect to the ability to exhibit it. I can’t wait to see how fans bring this set into their Star Wars themed collections“.
