The dusty steed was used to cross extreme dessert landscapes

Lego is certainly no stranger to the Star Wars franchise with a collosal and ever-expanding collection dedicated specifically to the much-hyped film series.

And now, on Star Wars Day 2022, one of the latest sets in the ultimate collector series has landed. Hold onto your helmets...

It’s a 1,890-piece set that recreates the infamous Luke Skywalker’s landspeeder – a dusty orange hued steed used to cross extreme dessert landscapes: think Tatooine.

Having made its debut in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the landspeeder has been reimagined in this adult set which comes in at 19in long, and even boasts a stand to give a hovering effect.

And for all those eager builders out there who didn’t sign up for early access, the set is up for grabs right now.

We know that fans will be itching to know more, so, without further ado, here’s all the details you need to ensure the force is with you this Star Wars Day and beyond.

Lego Luke Skywalker’s landspeeder: £174.99, Lego.com

Aiming to capture the major details of the origional steed, right down to the cockpit gear stick and dashboard, this 1,890-piece set is adorned in a dusty orange tone with red detailing. There’s a windscreen and cockpit, where the included Luke Skywalker and newly designed C-3PO minifigures can sit, as well as an open turbine engine. Perfect for play – where would this young Jedi be without his green lightsaber? – or display, it’s sure to be a hit for fans of the franchise young or old.

Lego Imperial Star Destroyer: £614.99, Lego.com

Capturing the starship in all its glory, this gigantic set flew straight into our best Lego sets for adults round-up. Our tester was impressed by the remarkable attention to detail, with the “scale model of the rebel starship that attaches to the front, a tilting tractor beam antenna and twin deflector shields.” They went on to add that “if you’re a real Star Wars fan and have the (considerable) space to display this, you’ll be the envy of every Lego-loving visitor.”

Lego Star Wars Republic Gunship: £309.99, Lego.com

Hailing from the Battle of Geonosis, and with a slightly less eye-watering price tag than others in the series, this 3,292-piece set was another favourite of ours which landed a spot in our best Lego sets for adults edit. Owing to its smaller size our tester appreciated the lack of repetition, with “ingenious engineering detail and some of the largest Lego pieces ever created.” This didn’t make it a breezey build mind, as they went on to add: “It’s still suitably challenging however, and took us nearly a week to build, working a couple of hours a day.”

Lego AT-AT: £699.99, Lego.com

Cop this “hard to find” brick-build replica of AT-AT, a four-legged vehicle used for combat, and you’ll find a host of features includeing moveable legs, rotating cannons and a bomb-drop hatch – plus, minifigures including General Veers, Snowtrooper Commander and Luke Skywalker himself – there’s even a cable and hook for Luke to be lowered down with.
