We take a closer look at some of the cooler features of the "Star Wars"
Lego Boba Fett and his ship, Slave I, in all their studded glory.
Here, the fully assembled Slave I sits upright in its display stand, measuring about half a metre tall (18 inches).
The usual suspects. The kit comes with minifigs of Han Solo, Boba Fett, a Stormtrooper and a Cloud City guard.
Boba Fett sits in Slave I's rotating cockpit with his blaster rifle secured to the side.
The windshield clips on over the top. Safety first.
The Lego Slave I has an elaborate wing articulation, leaving the wings parallel to the ground...
...whether the ship is horizontal...
Prepare for takeoff. If you look closely, you'll be able to spot the clear studs that serve as feet for when the ship rests horizontally.
A closer look at the thrusters. The base of the kit is quite detailed, which is rare for most Lego sets.
(Left to right) Han Solo, looking worried. Han Solo, looking frozen in carbonite.
It lacks some of the drama of the actual scene from "Empire Strikes Back," but the Han minifig clips into the carbonite perfectly.
And the slab fits inside Slave I's prisoner transport, ready for delivery to Jabba.
The cannons at the bottom of the fuselage pivot 360 degrees.
But that's not all. These side panels open...
...and reveal a second pair of weapons.
The kit also comes with a display stand and nameplate for the Slave I.
Model designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer spent three months designing the Lego Slave I.
The actual ship was designed by Nilo Rodis-Jamero, the assistant art director and visual effects creator who worked on "The Empire Strikes Back."
Boba Fett's iconic outfit was designed by Joe Johnston. Yes, the same Joe Johnston who directed "Captain America: The First Avenger."
