This would have been an SDCC exclusive, but due to the cancellation of the event it the kit will be sold on Lego’s website.
The rebel cruiser was part of the armada that assaulted the second Death Star at Endor. They were used most often as escorts to protect convoys from Imperial patrols with the array of powerful turbolasers and tractor beams they carried. The ship was also used as medical bays – Luke Skywalker recovered in one after his fight with Vader on Cloud City.
There have been multiple MOC kits developed for the frigate – now it’s getting an official one from Lego.
This is a preliminary announcement, I’m sure there will be more information next week. Estimating the cost to be in the $50-60 range, and expecting that it will be an online exclusive limited to the US/UK. It is on the smaller side, especially compared to the MOC kits that have been out for years. Here’s the release from Lego with official pictures.
