The LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle – The Bentley of Shuttles

I really love what LEGO is doing these days with the Star Wars line. If they weren’t so costly, I probably would be the proud owner of every LEGO Star Wars set. With that said, you are looking at LEGO’s newest Star Wars set, the Imperial Shuttle. This thing is huge with a wing span of almost 2-feet and includes around 2500 pieces! Like the Millennium Falcon set, the Imperial Shuttle doesn’t come cheap. Priced at $259.99, this isn’t something you would buy your 4 year old. Of course for a 33 year old geek, the price is within reason.

You can purchase the Imperial Shuttle now at the LEGO online store here.
