Board the stolen Imperial Shuttle Tydirium, set the wings for flying mode and race to Endor with Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and the Endor Rebel Troopers.

What a great build! For a smaller model of the original – By Josiah on January 21, 2016
What a great build! For a smaller model of the original, it has great detail and functionality. The blasters on the wings have a cool mechanism that fires when you press down on part of the wing. The center manifold is also quite sturdy! The wings are also spot on with how they fold up and are able to be displayed.
A couple downsides (nothing important really, but noted): The landing gear is a little off balance, so you have to kind of balance it in the center which is no big deal at all. Secondly, the cockpit will easily fly up and down, and its a little akward getting any minifigures inside the ship itself.
Other than that, i think it was a really fun build and has a lot of display capabilities. Have fun!
I don’t know, fly casual…… – By Scott Crull on January 20, 2016
This set is AWESOME!!! It’s actually a little bigger than I thought it would be which is cool. The missile shooters are pretty sweet. The only thing I would say bad about this was the doors for the interior cabin – we screwed up putting them together but then figured it out (happens when you’re drinking and putting Legos together). Very happy with this purchase!
Cool piece – By Bonnie S. on January 15, 2016
Super cool lego. Kept middle schooler busy all day. Looks very cool and unique when complete. As always with lego, instructions clear and parts all there.
The design looks amazing and techniques used were interesting – By James on January 7, 2016
The design looks amazing and techniques used were interesting. A bit ify about the cockpit build, but still looks nice when in the closed position. I really like the detail on the minifigs. The amount if camouflage is perfect. They should have also put Luke, R2, and C-3PO to complete the scene.
Find me one … just one … Lego Star Wars building set that doesn’t deserve 5/5 stars! – By R. Calnan on January 3, 2016
Ok … so let me say this first … this thing is HUGE!
When the wings are UP it’s at least 14″ tall and maybe 8 or 9″ wide.
With the wings down, it’s 24″ wide (minimum, I’m guessing as I’m sitting at my computer trying to visualize).
Whatever – the set is amazing, worth every penny of the $100, and will not disappoint!
Shuttle Tydirium – Better for collectors than kids. – By Pablo Alamos on December 28, 2015
I am a little old school, believing that Legos are meant to be played with (as well as displayed and admired) and got the Imperial Shuttle for my two sons for Christmas for them to construct and then use as a toy spaceship. Under that criteria, I thought the shuttle was just ok and have a couple of comments:
(i) It took about four hours for us to put together (which is somewhat longer than usual for a set this size). There is nothing particularly complicated or sophisticated about the set, so it can be put together by a seven year old without much adult help. For the most part, it was fun for the kids to assemble and looks pretty neat once all put together. It has a way better appearance than some of the Star Wars Lego sets and is fairly faithful to the model from the movie.
(ii) The design is clever in some aspects (like the cockpit), but is pretty bad in other aspects.
* The ramp is too small and will pop open when kids want to play with it.
*There are two boxes that go in the passenger area that will fall out at the slightest jostling.
*The seats are smooth plastic, so you can’t attach the characters inside. If kids want to pretend to fly their characters around, they are going to be loose inside the ship.
* The thing is pretty top heavy with two little retractable landing pads that will buckle sending the thing toppling over unless you put them out precisely and balance the thing just so.
(iii) For a Star Wars Lego, the set is pretty sturdy (You don’t want to know how many times I’ve had to put the 2009 X-Wing Fighter back together. My kids would look at the thing and six pieces would fall under the couch.) The top fin is really well engineered with a bunch of side-posts throughout; you could hit baseballs with it once constructed. However, it fits onto the rest of the thing at a single point in the back and rests on a non-connected flat surface on the front. So whenever my kids pretend to fly the thing around, the top fin will wobble around wildly. I had to double and triple check the instructions to make sure I hadn’t done anything wrong, but nope, that was how it was supposed to be.
(iv) C’mon guys. No Luke Skywalker in Endor gear. That’s his coolest outfit. Though in fairness, they include Major Bern Derlin (uncredited). Now that is some love of Star Wars nostalgia.
Fun to assemble and easy to swoosh – By Matthew W. Copeland on December 26, 2015
Fun to assemble and easy to swoosh. A durable and attractive ship that was well worth my money. I’d buy it again.
