In Star Wars: A New Hope, Luke Skywalker used a desert hover vehicle called Landspeeder for farm work and traveling across Tatooine’ harsh desserts.
Accompanied by C-3PO, Luke used the Landspeeder to locate R2-D2, when he was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi. It was also the vehicle they were traveling in when Obi-Wan used a Jedi mind trick to get past stormtroopers guarding entry into Mos Eisley.
Sadly, Luke had to sell his beloved hovercraft to pay for transport to the planet Alderaan.
Now, Star Wars and LEGO fans can have their very own Landspeeder with the new epic LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Landspeeder set.
A faithful recreation of Luke’s battered vehicle, the new 1,890-piece model is 49 centimeters long when complete and features the two-seater cockpit, the turbine engine without a cover, the iconic curved cockpit windscreen plus an exclusive C-3PO minifigure (with 2K moulded legs and a side print) and Luke minifigure—complete with lightsaber.
The new set forms part of the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series sets, which also include the Millennium Falcon, the A-Wing, the Republic Gunship, and the recently released AT-AT.
The LEGO Star Wars Landspeeder set is available this month in LEGO Certified Stores and the official online store at the recommended retail price of P11,999.
