The Night Buzzard Has Landed: 75284 Knights of Ren Transport Ship

75284 Knights of Ren Transport Ship - Lifestyle - featured-image

The debut of the Night Buzzard in The Rise of Skywalker, on the desert planet of Pasaana where the Knights of Ren accompanied the head of their cult enclave in pursuit of the last Jedi – Rey – didn’t elicit much excitement from the Star Wars fan base.

It’s ultra-brief (and somewhat Slave I-like) appearance while tracking The Bestoon Legacy, and belching out a trail of smokey space exhaust, to Kijimi really made fans take notice.

This converted dungeon ship acted as the home, and main transport, of the Knights of Ren. With its crudely modified engines that spewed noxious smoke, its intimidating angles, black-steeled hull and heavy weaponry it served the Knights well until they met their demise at the hands of Ben Solo during the Battle of Exegol.

Ages Pieces VIP Points Item Minifigures Value

Detailing on this set is far above what would be expected for a set with a larger piece count, and the designer does a great job of recreating the brutal hull and its haphazard plating – especially the front grille which is particularly effective.

The lack of a cockpit is made up for by two gunner’s hatches, and the inclusion of a jail cell is a great reminder of the Night Buzzard’s original purpose.

Those fans who remember the Moldy Crow, Kyle Katarn’s spaceship in the Dark Forces/Jedi Knights video game series, will take joy from the canted angles of the engines while those who have been following the Knights of Ren’s metamorphosis as minifigures will be pleased that Cardo and Kuruk have been realized, and that the knight order is now complete*.

Also included in the set is a Rey minifigure, whom Kylo Ren had dispatched his Knights to capture, armed with Luke’s old lightsaber and two face prints.

One notable feature about this LEGO set is that its official name – Night Buzzard – was not included in any packaging or the set’s description. The obvious assumption would be that it fell foul of a trademark application, like The Razor Crest/The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport did. However a search of numerous trademark registration services doesn’t reveal anything untoward, so the likeliest expectation is that LEGO designed the set’s graphics and produced their written material before Lucasfilm gave the ship its name, first mentioned in the first issue of Marvel’s The Rise of Kylo Ren comic and exposed in The Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary (DK, Dec 2020).

Why, though, hasn’t the set’s name been updated is a question we’re likely never to get an answer to.

If there is any feedback that the Star Wars team at LEGO should take note of, it’s that this set is about 1/3rd too small. It’s understandable that this set – being the first of a vehicle that had screen time that can be counted in seconds instead of minutes – was going to be an exploratory one. Hopefully, the Knights of Ren’s scurrilous activities will be further explored by Disney, through Marvel and Del Rey, in the coming years and that by the time a re-issue can be justified (typically 4 to 5 years) the Knights will have enough of a following to warrant a larger version of the Night Buzzard.

Buy this set now – at, Walmart,, Entertainment Earth and Target now – for $69.99 (MSRP).

*This is in contrast to the 19-year wait that fans had to put up with to complete The Empire Strikes Back bounty hunter minifigure lineup that started with 7144 Slave I (2000) and ended with 75243 Slave I – 20th Anniversary Edition (2019).
