Overnight, LEGO sent through a press release and details for 75144: Snowspeeder, a new addition to the Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series. There has been rumours abounding about a UCS snowspeeder, but this is the first we’ve seen that’s official.
This isn’t the first UCS Snowspeeder that LEGO has released, with 10129: Rebel Snowspeeder released back in 2003, but we haven’t seen a re-release since. As far as detail goes, there is plenty to get excited about. Two exclusive minifigures, a new windshield element, rotating weapons and air-brakes is just the beginning of what you’ll find amongst the 1,703 elements in the set. It’s set to be priced at USD$199.99.
When more details of an Aussie price become available, I’ll be sure to post it.
EDIT: Just in! The Australian price for 75144: Snowspeeder is $329.99. That’s a bit more than I was expecting, but still reasonable.
The launch date for 75144: UCS Snowspeeder is, of course, May 4th, 2017, with VIP Early Access scheduled for April 29. The full press release and more images are below.
There’s also a Designer Video from LEGO. Soooo many stickers! Why are there so many stickers in a UCS set? C’mon LEGO.
