Nice review and compelled me to finally go buy the kit after also reading its detailing being better than the larger Zvezda kit, and pre-drilled holes yet too!

That is if you can find the lighted version, don't have the standard but am almost certain that it does not come with the pre-drilled holes.

There are plenty of the lighted versions available for sale online. Thanks for the video.

Mine arrived today - it's funny (or not) that the model is smaller than the old MPC kit from the '70s, yet packaged in a box more than twice the size giving an impression of a large kit like the Zvezda but in reality is the smallest Star Destroyer in my collection. The pre-drilled holes are fantastic, though!
13. August, 21:11
Christopher J
Oh yeah that is one of the best aspects as it significantly simplifies the assembly process for lighting this thing up.

It turns out there are two ways to light the kit, the default way where you just have the light ooze out of the holes from the LEDs, and the traditional and more labor intensive one where you use fiber optics (not included). The optimization they've done for you is they included some clear parts where you can stick the FO in. The included booklet by Model Graphix has a SBS guide (english/japanese) of how to do this. The booklet didn't do a good job of differentiating the final outcome (it doesn't want to say the original way is bad of course), but I think FO is by far the better option. But tons more work so back to the stash it did.

True. But if it would be twice as big, then it would be worth the size! And impressiv ;) imo

Word on the street is there will be the lighted premium version and a cheaper version without the lighting kit.
5. May 2019, 09:56
Jdalianis
@ Demigod: Yes the lighted version is about 50% more than the unlighted one. The lighted one is supposed to include a special booklet and have clear parts (duh!).

If Bandai had done this a year and a half ago I would have grabbed one. As it is I spent a lot of time super detailing and lighting the Revell kit (which is slightly bigger than Banadai's) and then I bought the Zvezda with all the Resin and PE aftermarket items along with a lighting kit. The Zvezda is almost twice the size of Bandai. I love Bandai and have all their smaller Star Wars kits but this came too late for me. I will pass.

Being frequently asked by russian community "Will there be other Star Wars ships?", Zvezda said "We should see first how successfull this one will be."

See one on ebay for $160.00 (Canadian dollars)
18. November 2016, 12:45

I see two sellers for about $116 and one seller for $170 on ebay this evening. Presumably, all too high.
8. December 2016, 21:09
Treehugger
Sometimes I think the prices on ebay seem a little funny. Low prices and high shipping, or high price, and low shipping. I guess the really interesting price would have to be the sum of the kit price + shipping.

Another big model on the way to me at the moment! (Just brought a Airfix Victor and also the Squadron Hanuebu II as well) Will have to drill hundreds of tiny holes in the Star Destroyer and light the hell out of it! :) got it for $91.08 USD plus around $25 postage. It's a BIG BOX.
21. January 2017, 18:28
Glenn .
Just arrived! Very big box! All instructions only in Russian no English (no big deal) it's only a wedge pretty simple to build and nicely detailed. The box states, "WARNING Any sales of this kit outside former USSR are illegal" so don't expect it to turn up in any shops in Europe or the USA. The Disney License must only be for Russia? BUT my guess is that this will get re-boxed by Revell? Like some of the other Zvezda kits eg Boeing 787 and the New tool Mig-29 kit. Just like the Finemoulds Millennium Falcon did :)
7. February 2017, 17:03

More likely they didn't pay a licence to manufacture. Disney probably have no way of suing in that part of the world
7. February 2017, 19:35
Glenn .
I believe they have got a licence from Disney. They also did the movie "Planes" models. So i don't think they would spend all this money tooling it only for Russia!
8. February 2017, 03:44
wilky
Was just a thought. If I lived in Russia I would be more worried about buying an actual tank to survive the other drivers than buying kits
8. February 2017, 04:02
EnsignExpendabl
I've seen this before with textbooks. There are certain editions made specifically for certain markets where they're sold for less (usually a lot less). That label is there to discourage resellers from buying up all the stock and flipping it for profit in another country. I'm sure official Star Destroyers will come to North America soon enough.
8. February 2017, 15:13
Glenn .
Agree, Most likely with a Revell logo on the box i think! I was just worried about a tall heavy breathing "mouse" dressed in black turning up at my doorstep! Karrrrrrrrrr....Heeeeeeee......Karrrrrrrrr......Heeeeeee..... looking for the Star Destroyer :)

I just ordered and paid for this kit off Ebay, but for about $116, which might be more than the final price for all I know. The two sellers do seem legit, but I've never done this before, buying something that isn't already a common item in stores. It looks to me that the two sellers re-listed their items this evening, maybe they are putting up just a few number of kits for sale at a time? Someone warned me about buying this today, so I hope this turns out ok for me. :)
8. December 2016, 21:02
Treehugger
I just got an email confirmation today this Saturday about the item having been shipped. Two days after I placed an order.
10. December 2016, 10:31
Spanjaard
it may be entirely legit. i just hope you do not have surprises with customers. i recently order a model from luckymodel.com, nice price (30+ EUR) but because the value was above the threshold of 22EUR, i had to pay the VAT, plus the administration fee.... total 18EUR extra. so the price was basically increased 50%, although was of no fault of the shop.....
10. December 2016, 14:01
Treehugger
Yes, for me for buying online, there is a magical price limit I try to stick to, howeve I have decided to overlooked that limit for this one particular kit. :) So I expect an additional fee of 25% taxes and something equivalent to $17 in customs fee, basically making the kit more expensive.

I wonder what the model's width is. It sort of looks like this 60cm long model might perhaps fit in my display cabinet, which is 61cm wide and 37cm deep. :)
10. December 2016, 18:00
Treehugger
Hm, someone showed a photo in a forum, showing whole hull and with a ruler on the side of it. When I use an image editing tool to adjust the depicted ruler in that photo, the width appear to be about 34,5cm wide.
10. December 2016, 18:07
Treehugger
Don't forget to use the proper gray color everyone! :) Afaik, empire ships generally has a cool gray, while the Millennium Falcon has an overall warm gray.
10. December 2016, 10:05
Treehugger
Something more close to 'light aircraft gray' (cooler?), but not 'light gull gray' (warmer?).
10. December 2016, 14:28
Treehugger
I think this will be a fun project to add styrene to and mess around with. I won't go overboard with detailing it, but I can probably add a few things. Like the garbage shute opening and improving the two domes.
I wonder how I will fit this Star Destroyer in my spray booth for airbrushing. I suppose worst case, would be to do the airbrushing out on the balcony (acrylic paint). :)

Zvezda have licence from Disney for Star Wars models?
26. October 2016, 20:27
Pavel Pinzhin
They do have general Disney license, so, probably, Star Wars are covered by that :)
Maybe there are regional restrictions though, I'm not sure.
By now they produce pure Disney "Cars" and "Planes" snap-fits, Marvel "Avengers" snap-fits, a magnificent 1/72 Pirates of Caribbean "Black Pearl" (wich is sold abroad Russia as a generic "pirate ship" Black Swan, I believe) - and all of that are licensed products.
