Building the Lego Star Wars Boba Fett and Slave IThe Lego Star Wars Slave I kit takes around 5 hours to build. Here's everything that went into bringing Boba Fett's ship to life condensed to just over a minute.
Hi, Luke Lancaster here with CNET. And today we're building the Star Wars Lego Slave 1. At almost 2000 pieces the Slave 1 Lego kit is impressively large. There are two main sections to the ship and you'll start out by building the base. The two halves of the base clip together and the top bit and fuselage get built on top. It really starts to take shape after about two hours of building. The final step in assembly is clipping on the side pieces of the fuselage and that put our build time for the Slave 1 at a little over 5 hours and 20 minutes. The kit comes with 4 lego mini figs. You get Bobofet himself, the Storm Trooper, a Cloud City Guard and Hans Solo, who conveniently fits inside a slab of carbonite, a delivery to Jaba. The Slave 1 has its horizontal landing mode and it's vertical flat mode. The wings are carefully rigged to automatically rotate based on how the ship is oriented, and the cockpit swings around too, but you'll have to rotate that by hand. The ship features movable weapons arrays, two hidden inside concealed compartments. There's even a cargo door, perfect for storing Han frozen in carbonite. Slave 1 also comes with a stand and nameplate, which displays the ship in it's half meter tall flight orientation. That's about a foot and a half for all of you Imperial subjects out there.
