8099 Midi-Scale Imperial Star Destroyer is a LEGO Star Wars set released in August 2010 as part of Classic Star Wars. This is the second midi-scale set released, and is similar in size to the first set, 7778 Midi-scale Millennium Falcon. This set was sold in the US as a Special Edition set at the LEGO Store and Walmart.
DescriptionThe Midi-Scale Imperial Star Destroyer is equipped with a stand for display. This set is mainly composed of Dark Stone Grey and light grey pieces.
The Imperial Star Destroyer is the first Imperial ship seen in the Original Trilogy of Star Wars. It pursues the Rebel Blockade Runner known as Tantive IV. The ship is seen in all three of episodes of the Original Trilogy in Star Wars.
Recent sources, however, state that at least several ISDs—then known as Imperator-class Star Destroyers—were in the service of the Republic during the the Clone Wars.
On an interesting note, Venator-class ships in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith are shown in the final scenes with a gray color scheme identical to that of the ISD to symbolize Imperial transition.
- This is the second Midi-Scale set, the first being 7778 Midi-scale Millennium Falcon.
- All of the Midi-Scale sets are from the Original Trilogy.
