For the first time ever, the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer 75252 kit is on sale on Amazon. It’s normally $699.99, but today you can buy it for $649. Technically, it’s “only” 7% off, but $50 in raw savings is still a welcome discount for a coveted set. The LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer is also one of the few kits that didn’t suffer from LEGO’s price hikes earlier in the year, so you’re not getting a “fake” deal that just brought the price down to the Original MSRP. .

The LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer is the perfect complement to the $800 Millennium Falcon. This set measures 42 inches long, 26″ wide, and 17″ high and consists of nearly 5,000 bricks. He weighs 28 pounds. For comparison, the previous LEGO Star Destroyer (10030), which has long been discontinued and regularly fetches prices in the thousands, is a bit smaller at 36″x23″ with a 3,096 brick count.
The Imperial Star Destroyer is part of LEGO’s Ultimate Collector’s Series (UCS), a collection of primarily Star Wars kits that are more complex than other LEGO sets and generally aimed at an older audience. They are also intended for display purposes only. Other sets include the Millennium Falcon, Death Star, AT-AT, Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder, A-Wing Starfighter, and more. This set was designed by Henrik Anderson, who also created several other UCS sets. Traditionally, all of these sets were eventually discontinued and the price skyrocketed thereafter. While we don’t recommend storing LEGOs as part of your retirement portfolio, UCS sets offer a better return on investment than other kits.
