What It Is
The LEGO Star Wars The Malevolence is a 1,094-piece building set that replicates the flagship of General Grievous. The heavy cruiser became a dire threat to the Republic early in The Clone Wars. This model features the spacecraft's signature twin ion cannons that really fire. The top opens to reveal a play area, and kids can pretend to make it fly through the galaxy by lifting up on the handle. The set comes with six minifigures: Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala, General Grievous, Count Dooku, the Battle Droid Commander, and a Battle Droid. Weapons include two medium blasters, a blaster pistol, and six lightsabers. Accessories include a wrench and hammer.
