When Nick and I first considered this blog, we decided to splash out a little on our first kit so that we could start out with something really impressive. We’ve been eyeing up the Imperial Shuttle Tydirium kit for some time and didn’t need any further excuse to pick one up.
The Imperial Shuttle is one of the most recognisable of the spaceships from the original Star Wars trilogy, most notably appearing in Return of the Jedi from which this kit is based. The kit boasts five minifigs, two spring-loaded missile launchers, movable wings and landing gear, an opening cockpit and a secret access hatch in the base.
