LEGO Star Wars UCS 75275 A-wing Starfighter plaque contains errors

There are a few errors on the sticker that will be included with the upcoming LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series 75275 A-wing Starfighter.

On May 1, the latest LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) set will be released75275 A-wing Starfighter. One of the things that LEGO fans enjoy doing is looking out for when the company makes little mistakes on the stickers and printed elements included in sets – and there are indeed errors on this one.

LEGO Star Wars: The five largest sets

Brickset has used the attention to detail that comes with maintaining a massive LEGO database to highlight the mistakes – some, like stylising the ship’s name as A-Wing rather than A-wing is probably of more interest to those editing websites than Star Wars fans, but the others are a bit more cut and dry:

  • The length is incorrectly given as 9.60 metres. This figure has appeared in various older reference works but the modern canon length is 6.90 metres which seems much more accurate when compared with the movie.
  • ‘Kuat System Engineering’ should be pluralised as ‘Kuat Systems Engineering’. LEGO has included the correct name on previous UCS plaques.
  • The weapons information suggests that the A-wing includes a single concussion missile launcher but it actually features two. This mistake may be attributable to limited space on the plaque.

There is one more listed, but it is worth taking a look at the image, seeing if you can spot it, then clicking through to see if you got it right – it’s a very, very specific one!

As Brickset points out, UCS sets having errors on the plaques goes all the way back to 7181 TIE Interceptor and 7191 X-wing Fighter.

It is the first time that 75275 A-wing Starfighter, introduced in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, has been given the UCS treatment. It will be priced at £179.99 in the UK and $199.99 in the USA.

LEGO Star Wars 75275 A-wing Starfighter will be released on May 1 at LEGO.com.
