StarWars.com has revealed that a brand new LEGO UCS Y-Wing set will be released as part of the festivities planned for Star Wars Day May 4. The set (75181) clocks in at some pretty sizable dimensions and will be priced at a shade under $200. Check out the announcement below and accompanying image gallery for more information on this new LEGO set.
The Y-wing has been a fan favorite rebel ship ever since its debut in Star Wars: A New Hope. (Plus, it’s just really fun to say “Red Leader, this is Gold Leader,” and pretend you’re piloting one.) And for the Y-wing faithful, StarWars.com is excited to reveal the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Y-Wing Starfighter, a masterful and massive take on the iconic craft.
Coming May 4 for $199, the LEGO UCS Y-Wing is highly detailed and impressively large, measuring over 2″ high, 24″ long, and 11″ wide, and over 9″ high mounted on the included stand. It comes complete with Gold Leader and R2-BHD minifigures, and features an opening minifigure cockpit, wheel-activated rotating ion cannons on top, retractable landing skids, and space for an astromech droid. Not bad for the ol’ workhorse of the rebel fleet.
