Collectors will shell out close to $1100 for the scale model of the Destroyer, Darth Vader's imperial flagship from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

About 100 Lego and Star Wars fans are expected at Dreamworld tonight.

Store manager Scott Burgess said: "In the past, we have had people camp overnight at the Dreamworld Lego Store to be the first to purchase limited-edition products and we had around 170 people attend the last midnight product launch.

"As Australia's largest Lego-certified store, we attract Lego enthusiasts and buyers from across the state, and even interstate, and we expect the Imperial Star Destroyer to attract the same amount of people at this midnight launch."

There have been previous Star Destroyer models, however this "Ultimate Collector Series" version is the biggest yet.

It captures all the authentic details of the starship as it appeared in the opening scene of A New Hope, including swivel guns, a tilting radar dish, huge engine exhausts, and a buildable version of the Tantive IV starship to chase down.
