The Star Destroyer Was A 1,600 Meter Long Behemoth. As A LEGO® Set, It Is Equally Massive.
The Star Destroyer was a cruiser from the Imperial Fleet designed to be an army by itself – hangers for shuttles and fighters, turbolasers, deflector shields, ion cannons, and even a tractor beam. The Star Destroyer you see exhibited in LEGO® sets and the movies are the Imperial II-Class Star Destroyers. This cruiser was inspired by the Republic Venator-class Star Destroyer (a new UCS LEGO® Venator is coming out in just a few weeks).
