In the latest update to our Tyk Open Source API Gateway we make it quick and simple to unify and control access to every data-source in your organisation. All without code.

Grand prize

“Welcome to the largest, most detailed LEGO® Star Wars Millennium Falcon model ever created—in fact, with 7,500 pieces it’s one of the biggest LEGO models, period! This amazing model also features interchangeable sensor dishes and crew, so you decide whether to play out classic LEGO Star Wars adventures with Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO, or enter the world of Episode VII and VIII with older Han, Rey, Finn and BB-8!”

Bonus prizes

Here at Tyk we have a soft spot for little green beings – so much so that we’re awarding FOUR bonus prizes! “Turn the cuteness factor up to the max with this LEGO® Star Wars™ The Child (75318) build-and-display model. Authentic details of this popular character, affectionately known as Baby Yoda, are recreated in LEGO style, with posable head, ears and mouth for different expressions, plus the Child’s favorite toy – a gearshift knob (element included) – for it to hold just like it does in Star Wars: The Mandalorian.”
