LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer rumoured for 2021 release

A brand new LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer is rumoured to be coming later this year – and it’ll reportedly be free with a qualifying spend at LEGO.com.

That means it won’t be quite as large as the last one, 2019’s 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer, which weighed in at 4,784 pieces for £649.99 / $699.99 / €699.99 (just imagine the order threshold to take that home).

Instead, Instagram user @exabrickslegogo_ reports that the new promo set will consist of 369 pieces, and comes packed with a single Imperial Officer minifigure. That still seems like a pretty hefty part count for a free set, though, so if it does come to pass, it’s safe to expect a required spend of roughly £150 / $150 / €150.

There’s no word yet on when exactly we can expect to see this new Star Destroyer arrive at LEGO.com, but history tells us it should launch in either May or October, alongside whatever direct-to-consumer sets the LEGO Star Wars team has cooked up for 2021.

If rumours of a new Ultimate Collector Series Death Star are to be believed, though, a midi-scale Star Destroyer (akin to the one pictured above, which launched in 2010) would make a pretty fitting tie-in gift…

For now, take any word on a new Star Destroyer with a heavy pinch of salt – at least until confirmed otherwise by the LEGO Group.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
