Update: Now down to $107.66 shipped at Amazon.
Amazon currently offers the Bandai Star Wars 1/5000th Star Destroyer Model Kit for $108 shipped. Usually selling for $140, today’s offer is good for a 23% discount, comes within $4 of the Amazon low, and matches the second-best discount we’ve seen. Bandai’s Star Destroyer model kit stacks up to 12.6-inches long and is assembled out of eight different sheets of colored pieces. No tools are required to build, but a pair of sprue cutters will certainly come in handy. Replicating many of the ship’s details from A New Hope, Bandai has also included miniature versions of the Millennium Falcon and Tantive IV Blockade Runner. Best of all, it includes a lighting kit so you can make the ship come to life in your collection. All of the company’s Star Wars model kits are well-reviewed and you can learn more in our launch coverage. More below.
Bring the Star Destroyer into your collection without the premium lighting kit installed for $76 at Amazon. Here you’ll score nearly the same model, just without the ability to complete the ship with realistic lighting. Or for those looking to assemble a piece of a galaxy far, far away without diving into this massive model may one to check out another of Bandai’s kits.
If LEGO is more your thing, we just took a hands-on look at the recent UCS Star Destroyer kit, which brought the LEGO Star Wars 20th anniversary to an end in excellent fashion.
