A faithful recreation of Luke’s battered vehicle, the new 1,890-piece model is a must have for Star Wars and LEGO fans alike.
X-34 Landspeeders were typical civilian transports, designed to withstand the roughest terrains. The Landspeeder was first seen in Star Wars: A New HopeTM, where Luke used the vehicle extensively as part of his farm work, travelling across Tatooine’sTM harsh deserts. Accompanied by C-3POTM, Luke used the Landspeeder to locate R2-D2TM, when he was discovered by Obi-Wan KenobiTM. It was also the vehicle they were travelling in when Obi-Wan used a JediTM mind trick to get past stormtroopers guarding entry into Mos EisleyTM. Eventually Luke sold the Landspeeder to pay for his transport to the planet AlderaanTM.
The LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Landspeeder building set is 49 centimetres long when complete and features the two-seater cockpit, the turbine engine without a cover, the iconic curved cockpit windscreen plus an exclusive C-3POTM Minifigure (with 2K moulded legs and a side print) and Luke Minifigure – complete with lightsaber.
This much-anticipated set makes for the perfect piece to display and show off your love of Star Wars and LEGO building. Even the unboxing is a fun journey within itself, with the vibrant packaging showing off the intricate details of the final built set from several different perspectives.
The new set forms part of the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series sets, which also include the Millennium FalconTM, the A-Wing, the Republic Gunship, and the recently released AT-ATTM.
The Landspeeder building set has been expertly created by LEGO set designer César Carvalhosa Soares. Discussing the design, César said, “It’s been an amazing adventure creating Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder in LEGO brick form. It is such an iconic vehicle in the Star Wars saga. We’ve ensured no detail has been forgotten and have even included some of the scratches. The finished product makes an incredible display and is the perfect addition to the UCS collection.”
