December 19 – Star Destroyer

This Star Destroyer was actually designed with the intention of featuring on Blocks’ Issue 27 cover. The initial plan was that Issue 25 would also take a Rogue One cover theme and review the first wave of sets closer to their late September release date.

However, that proved not possible, so Issue 25 was re-focused to the impressive Disney Castle, and the initial Issue 25 Rogue One cover plan was moved to Issue 27. This usurped what would have been a second Rogue One cover design for 27, to have been based on one of the glorious shots from the film of the Death Star surrounded by Star Destroyers.

A long story for a small Star Destroyer. Note the angle of each side of the Destroyer achieved through a central bar holding everything together. This is more a display model than a throw-across-the-room model.


Blocks magazine Issue 27, featuring Rogue One, is on sale now at all good magazine retailers. Subscriptions are available at

Rob Paton

As one half of Tiro Media Ltd, I mix a passion for print and digital media production with a deep love of LEGO and can often be found on these pages eulogising about LEGO Batman, digging deeper into the LEGO Group’s inner workings, or just complaining about the price of the latest LEGO Star Wars set. Make a great impression when you meet me in person by praising EXO-FORCE as the greatest LEGO theme of all time. Follow me on Twitter @RobPaton or drop me an email at [email protected]
