To celebrate the LEGO Star Wars 25th anniversary, is excited to reveal the new LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series TIE Interceptor, arriving May 1 — just in time for May the 4th.

A redesign of the original TIE Interceptor building set that was part of the first launch of the Ultimate Collector Series in 2000, the new 1,931-piece craft measures over 12.5 inches high, 16 inches long and 13 inches wide. Impressive. Most impressive.

“Finally making the UCS TIE Interceptor again after so many years was so exciting for me,” Henrik Andersen, designer master at the LEGO Group, tells “Compared to the last time I designed the UCS TIE Interceptor, I was now able to create a close-to-perfect replica of the movie prop. It’s always been one of my favorite Star Wars ships.”

The model, designed after the ship’s first appearance in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, is mountable on a printed plaque and comes with two exclusive minifigures: a TIE Pilot and Imperial mouse droid. Check it out in the gallery below, along with more of today’s reveals for upcoming LEGO Star Wars 25th anniversary releases!
