LEGO has just taken the wraps off its next Ultimate Collector Series Star Wars set, a minifigure-scale version of the Empire’s most fearsome walker, the AT-AT. With 6,785 pieces, 75313 AT-AT stands over two feet tall and features a fully detailed interior. It includes nine minifigures, two speeder bikes, an E-Web turret, and enough firepower to take out a Rebel shield generator with ease.

LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series 75313 AT-AT — The Empire truly strikes back [Review]

LEGO’s tremendously popular Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) models have been the flagships of the Star Wars theme since they were first introduced back in 2000. Most of the models have been large-scale interpretations of various ships, such as the 75275 UCS A-wing. However, a small handful have been closer to minifigure-scale versions of larger vehicles, notably the 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon and 75060 UCS Slave I. LEGO’s latest UCS model follows in the latter vein, bringing fans a proper minifigure-scale model of the Empire’s fearsome beast, the AT-AT. 75313 AT-AT is the second-largest Star Wars set to date, with 6,785 pieces, falling short by fewer than 800 pieces of the UCS Millennium Falcon. It features nine minifigures, including Luke Skywalker, General Veers, two AT-AT pilots, and five Snowtroopers, and will be available starting Nov. 26 for US $799.99 | CAN $949.99 | UK £749.99.
