Unveiled today following an early sighting in a LEGO Store over the weekend, 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser is the first Clone Wars UCS set, as signposted by its red bridges and minifigure line-up. And while it conjures up memories of 2019’s 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer, there’s easily enough within this set to allow it to stand on its own, too.
LEGO Star Wars 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser build
From the limited images available so far, it looks like 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser will offer a familiar build process for anyone who’s previously put together 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer. If you don’t count yourself among that crowd, expect an internal frame of Technic beams surrounded by large panels built with plates and bricks. Fingers crossed the slimmer profile of the Venator results in a sturdier finished build than the ISD.
LEGO Star Wars 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser minifigures
Like most LEGO Star Wars UCS sets for the past few years (with a handful of notable exceptions), 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser includes two minifigures. Both of these are currently exclusive to the Clone Wars-era set, however – in contrast to, say, 75355 X-wing Starfighter and 75341 Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder, both of which boast a single exclusive minifigure among their two characters.
This is our first-ever Clone Wars-era Admiral Yularen (he’s previously appeared in Imperial garb in a May the 4th polybag), and he’s rocking dual-moulded legs to represent boots, mirroring the Imperial Officer in 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer. But for most collectors he’s likely to play second fiddle to Captain Rex, who returns in his Phase II armour for the first time in a decade.
With arm and leg printing, a fabric pauldron and a unique helmet design, this Rex almost looks worthy of UCS status (which typically means additional details for well-loved characters – see Luke in the X-wing or C-3PO in the Landspeeder). But the community has already taken issue with his printed kama, represented by two lines on the front of his legs, matching recent clone leaders such as Commander Fox and Captain Vaughan.
LEGO Star Wars 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser details
These enormous cruisers are not especially known for their tiny details, but the LEGO Star Wars team has still found room within its 5,374 pieces to add small touches that draw the eye. From greebling across its outer shell and brick-built cannons to stickered logos and the Venator’s distinctive red stripes, there are plenty of details to enjoy throughout 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser.
Probably the most distinctive, though, is the hangar recreated on the side of the flagship, which even boasts a microscale Republic Gunship. That’s technically the second Republic Gunship in as many months…
LEGO Star Wars 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser size and scale
Carve out some serious space for 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser, because the latest UCS set weighs in at a staggering 109cm long, 32cm tall and 54cm wide. That’s comparable in scope to 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer, so maybe just shunt that one out for this one. Or if you have the room to display them both side-by-side, more power to you – but the original trilogy flagship is a centimetre longer and 12cm taller.
That means the two ships aren’t actually to scale, because the Venator is a good chunk smaller than the Star Destroyer in-universe. The Imperial cruiser measures 1,600 metres in length, while its Republic equivalent is regarded as standing 1,137 metres long. That’s roughly a 29% difference, which would have put 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser at around 77cm long. But that wouldn’t have been nearly as impressive…
LEGO Star Wars 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser new pieces
LEGO Star Wars sets of this size are generally not known for introducing new elements, because at this scale you can pretty much build any particular shape you want out of existing pieces. As such, not many new parts are jumping out from the images we’ve seen so far – save for the new print on Captain Rex’s helmet, which uses standard Phase II headgear as a base, and the printed informational plaque.
We’ll get a better idea of whether 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser includes any genuinely new pieces (rather than just new prints) when it arrives on shelves next month.
75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser launches for LEGO Insiders on October 1, and for everyone else on October 4, for £559.99 / $649.99 / €649.99. Click here for more on the newest addition to the Ultimate Collector Series.
