EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The villains in Star Wars movies always have the coolest shuttles to make their grand entrances, and Rogue One's Director Krennic has joined that club. The LEGO Star Wars: Krennic's Imperial Shuttle, from LEGO, is an 863-piece set, LEGO item number 75156, that builds the imposing space ship used by the Imperial Director of Advanced Weapons Research, Director Krennic, in the movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The set comes with six LEGO Star Wars minifigures, including Director Krinnic, and two Imperial Death Troopers from the Empire. Rebel Alliance minifigures include Bodhi Rook, Pao, and the lanky droid, K2-so. 

The completed Imperial Shuttle has multiple features including its two large wings that fold down, in classic, Star Wars-villain-ship style. The shuttle is comprised of multiple panel sections that open up, or out to reveal the interior areas of the ship, which include a command cockpit for Director Krennic, and consoles for two more minifigures to sit. There is also a ramp for Director Krennic's dramatic entrances. It wouldn't be a LEGO Star Wars ship without missiles. Krennic's Imperial Shuttle has two spring-loaded missiles, one on each wing. 

Is It Fun?
The features built into this LEGO Star Wars ship, and the included movie character-based minifigures allow Rogue One fans to recreate scenes from the movie. The set can be used to play out those scenes, or to create new Star Wars adventures. This large, menacing Star Wars shuttle is also going to look great in a display, or part of LEGO Rogue One diorama.
Who It’s For
The set is intended for LEGO builders, and Star Wars fans, ages 9–14. We think kids that are younger than 9 will like this set also, but might need help building it. It's definitely going to be a huge hit with older fans, and adult LEGO collectors as well.     
What To Be Aware Of

The directions for the Krennic's Shuttle set are easy to follow thanks to LEGO's clear illustrations, and the numbered bags for the pieces. Because of the set's piece count of 863, it's a long build that should take LEGO builders at least two hours to complete. 

There are multiple additional sets from LEGO for Rogue One available, and sold separately.
