Hinted at some time ago, rumoured for a while and teased last week, LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer has now been officially announced for release on September 18. It will be priced at £649.99 / $699.99.
Following in the style of 75192 Millennium Falcon, the imposing Imperial vessel is getting the modern UCS treatment. Using 4,784 bricks and measuring 110cm long, the set promises to be a display piece worthy of the Empire.

Two new minifigures – the Imperial Officer and Imperial Crew Member – are included with the set along with as a buildable display base.
