The LEGO Group has announced its first build experience from the “Dune” universe. In partnership with Legendary Entertainment, the LEGO Icons Dune Atreides Royal Ornithopter, brings the aircraft from the film to life.
As part of the new 1,369-piece build experience, fans of “Dune” will be able to recreate the dragonfly-inspired design of an Ornithopter like never before, with functional blades on the aircraft that can flap and retract with a 180-degree rotation. The set also comes with eight new LEGO Minifigures of characters from “Dune,” including Paul Atreides, Lady Jessica, Gurney Halleck, Chani, Leto Atreides, Liet Kynes, Duncan Idaho and Baron Harkonnen.
“Like fans across the world, we were fully enraptured by the epic ‘Dune’ when it released – so our return to Arrakis in ‘Dune: Part Two’ was the perfect opportunity to bring this iconic craft to life in LEGO brick form,” says Michael Psiaki, design master, The LEGO Group. “Builders can now recreate this impressive ship with amazing detail, whether to proudly display or recreate their favorite scenes from the epic Dune saga at home.”
“Turning a beloved ‘Dune’ icon into a LEGO masterpiece has always been our dream,” says Amber Sheppo, vice president, consumer products and partnerships, Legendary Entertainment. “The unique and creative design of this product perfectly aligns with both the ‘Dune’ and LEGO spirit, and we’re excited for fans of all ages to enjoy the experience.”
