The Devastator set has tons of details from the movie, including swiveling guns, a tilting radar disk, huge engine exhausts and intricate surface detailing. It also comes with a scale version of the Tantive IV ship used by Leia to try and escape with the plans for the Death Star, which can be built separately and attached to the main model so you can relive the Rebel ship being captured by the Empire.

There are also some all-important underlings for you to boss around, as the set comes with imperial officer and imperial crewmember minifigures, plus two blaster pistols. If you want to show off your 17-inch high, 26-inch wide creation once it's built, it comes with a display stand with an informational plaque.

The set goes on sale on October 1st, and will cost $700 in the US and £650 in the UK. Time to start saving.
